Question about Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I have a 1979 Camaro that the brake lights don't work. I have checked the bulb and fuse, both good. The brake switch is good. I also discovered that the hazad flashers are working as well (the fuse runs both the brake and hazard). The ground is good at the tail lights as well. Is there a relay or something I am missing causing them not to work?

The brake light wiring runs through the turn signal switch. I'd check that for problems. (usually a melted connection in the switch itself.)

My running lights work my turn signals work why don't my brake lights


You either have a bad brake light switch or a bad fuse that powers your brake lights. Go to your fuse panel and check the fuse first. If it checks good then check the brake light switch. The switch will be located on the brake pedal at the top. There should be two wires into the switch. One will have power at all times. as you depress the brake pedal it makes the connection in the switch to the other wire which then sends power to the brake lights and illuminates the bulbs. Use an electrical tester to make sure you have power in and power out when the brake pedal is depressed.

Brake lights dont work Bulbs are good and brake light switch is good


The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

I have a 2000 LHS, i was at a stop light the other day and got run into, from the back[just a scratch or two]. later i checked my brake lights and discovered they no longer worked[i had checked them about...


Have you checked for power at the sockets? How about power out of the turn signal switch? Is the third brake light also not working? If that bulb is good and there is no power at the socket than you have a bad break light switch. Check for power in and out of the switch with the brake pedal depressed. You can also unplug the brake light switch and jump it to confirm the lights work.

I can get you the wire colors if you need them.

Hell i just bought a chevy cavlier and my back break light is out...the light its self is on...its just the break light when pressed...


you don`t say if its both or just one brake light out.you say the light itself is on but not if you mean tail light or what.the tail lights use a different filament in the bulb than the signal light which is the same filament that the brake light uses.if the signal light work on the rear then the bulbs are good,if just one side works then the bulb is no good on the side that doesn`t work.if the signal lights work but neither brake light works then you need to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the fuses are good then it will be either a bad wire at the brake switch or a bad brake light switch,this is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash.

I have an 1986 camaro iroc. i have brake lights and turn signals but no tail lights or dash lights, i have power to the tail light replaced both bulbs. i cant seem to find the fuse . does anyone know where...


Bulbs work just like a fuse. When old they just short out like a weak fuse bowing out. Since the lights do not have a fuse you need to replace the headlamp switch for this switch controls the tail lamps. The directionals are controlled by the directional switch, and the brakes are controlled by a brake light switch. Those have fuses for they have switches. Headlight switches do not have a fuse

Check your brake light switch at your brake pedal make sure that you have power coming in and then going out with pedal depressed if that is ok check for a faulty turn signal switch the brake lights run thru the switch on the hazard circuit.

NO BRAKE LIGHTS CHANGED THE SWITCH BEHIND BRAKE PEDAL AND STILL NO BRAKES


Check for power at the brake switch connector. Check for broken wires at the connector. If no power check the fuses. If power check the bulbs.
