Check brake switch under dash near brake pedal arm. When you press your brakes this switch activates power to brake lights.

I have a suzuki xl7 2005 model my brake lights are not working I've checked fuses and also the third brake light, fuses are good but it looks as though the bulbs on the third light are blown whatcould


all brake lamps are dead.
and fuses are good. (did you check the right ones, or all?)
what about 3rd lamp?
if they look blown they are, why question that for $1 lamp.
replace lamps that are blown, the filament goes byebye.
fuse #9 is STOP, replace this on suspission
fuse that look ok, can have hair line cracks, we test them with a meter. so as not to guess...
next is this power 12vdc from stop fuse goes to the
stop switch and if stopping (foot brake) the output goes to 12vdc and all lamps on rear (stop)glow.
its cave man simple (unlike new cars that computers do all that)
now my advice, replace all 3 lamps
or take them out 1 by 1 and try them 1 by 1.
because lamps can SHORT and blow that fuse.
all there can be hand for $3,... and a new fuse for 50 cents.

How do I get the tail lights working in a 2003 honda accord coupe. I have changed the fuses and that didn't work. They just stopped working


Sounds like it may be a wiring problem. There may be a short in the wires running to the lights. Do the brake lights still work when you step on the brake pedal? Have you checked the bulbs in the lights themselves, maybe they both burned out.

Cant engage gear when brake is depressed


Many vehicles are equipped with a safety to prevent shifting the vehicle out of park without stepping on the brake.

Check to see that the brake lights come on when the brake pedal is despressed. This should verify the proper position of the brake light switch under the dash - that is released when the pedal is operated - and the brake circuit itself. This is part of the safety circuit mentioned above.

If the brake lights do not come on, look for an open / blown fuse in the fuse box. Consult your manual for the location of the fuse and fuse box(es) and replace with the appropriate size fuse. If it is not blown, check the rest of the fuses and replace any found to be open or blown.

Good luck!

Brake lights not working


A few things to check:

1. I had a car burn out both brake lights at the same time. Be sure both bulbs are good.

2. Did you verify the fuse didn't blow again? If it's blown you'll need to track down the short.

3. The next ting to check is the switch that activates the lights when the brake pedal is pushed.

Brake lights went out/has new switch, bulbs look good/no blown fuse that I know of


Remove a bulb and have someone step on the brake pedal. Use a volt meter or test light to see if there is power at the bulb socket. This will at least tell you where to head for the next step.

Toyo dyna 92 break lights not working , is there a fuse for this or is it hard wired bulbs ,work fine , ?


There is a fuse for the brake lights. Check fuse and replace if blown. If the fuse is not blown, check the bulbs themselves. If the bulbs are good, then the next step is to replace the brake light switch located under steering column attached to brake pedal rod.

Changed fuse and brake light still doesnt work


Did you check for voltage at the light socket before replacing the fuse?
Was the fuse blown? If so, you need to find out why it blew. (fuses do not blow for no reason) If not, why did you replace it?

Did you check for voltage in and out of the brake switch? Brake switch failures are common on Dodge trucks. There should be voltage going in, but none coming out the other side until the brake pedal is depressed. If there is voltage going in, the fuse is not blown. If there is still no voltage on the other side when the brake pedal is depressed, then the brake switch is your problem-child.

The next step is to check for voltage in and out of the multifunction switch. (turn signal switch) The brake lamp voltage is switched on and off by the turn signal switch. Failure of the turn signal switch can cause a "no brake light" symptom. This is a common failure among most makes of vehicles. This failure can often be verified by stepping on the brake pedal and wiggling the turn signal switch. If the brake lights flicker on and off while doing this, the mutifunction switch needs to be replaced.

Brake lights do not work All bulbs have been replaced.


Troubleshooting Procedures - Read Completely Before Beginning
(American Car) All Brake Lights Not Working
  • Check System Fuse: A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is ok continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.
  • Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.
  • Checking the Brake Light Switch: A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.
