There is a little black switch up on the brake pedal under the dash. It is almost to the top of the brake pedal on the back side. That switch goes bad and causes this problem.


I hope this helps you. If so please check YES! Thanks!

  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.

2005 Suburban brake signal light issue


Sounds like a faulty turn signal switch. The brake light wire is routed through the turn switch, so it appears the turn switch has gone crazy.

1996 chevrolet C1500. The back left turning signal/brakes light is not working. Front left turning signal works fine.(Faster than usual). The bulb comes on when the headlights are on(steady), but does not...


The bulb for the turn signal/brake light is a double filament bulb. It will come on with the lights on, but should light the second filament, making it brighter, with the brakes applied or turn signal on. It could just be a bad bulb, but one common problem on these years of truck is the rear light circuit board and requires the whole assembly to be replaced. Start by checking the bulb first though.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

I cannot get my back up light or my brake light to work. my blinker light and my running light work fine. just the backup lights and the stop lights are giving me problems.


CHECK ALL BULBS IF BULBS OKAY,REASON REVERSE LIGHTS DONT WORK YOU HAVE FAULTY INHIBITOR SWITCH.FOR BRAKE LIGHTS NOT TO WORK,EITHER BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH FAULTY OR TURN SIGNAL BAD,BECAUSE MOST CARS NOW TURN SIGNAL SWITCH AND BRAKE LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

Turn signals don't flash when braking 99 grand marquis


Check all earth wires on all lights.
most lights in cars run in series so if u loose one you loose the other mainly caused by bad earth on globe holders or corrosion where bulb sits.
little sand paper goes a long way.
