Car should have an emergency flasher. If it isn't working, it could affect the brake lights. might be the same unit as the turn flasher but different relay inside. Is your fuse panel behind the glovebox? manual says flasher is in the fusebox. It's worth a try replacing this flasher unit. Looks like this:

The most likely cause by far is a corroded earth connection point at the rear of the car. Trace it, and then clean it up or provide a new earthing point. The third light uses a different earthing point to the other rear lights.

A good auto electrician should be able to resolve this fault in about ten to fifteen minutes at most.

2003 GRand Prix, the 3rd brake light works , replaced bulbs and fuse under brake pedal, brake lights still don't work, any ideas?


The button is stuck in? Which button? If it is the flasher button then I would think that is why the brake lights and the flashers don't work. If it is the button behind the brake pedal that is stuck in it should keep the brake lights on and that would stop the flashers from working. I need more clarification on which button you are talking about being stuck.

My hazard flashers don't work on my 2008 ford edge.where is the fuse for the flashers or the relay .looked in manual no help


The vehicle's owner manual should let you know the location of the fuse box, boxes or fuse compartments. if not try to check under the hood, under the dashboard of the vehicle, most of the vehicle have them under the driver side or on the side of the dashboard. you may want to start there. or may be check the light bulbs as well and double check the rest of the light as well may be your light bulbs that may be bad but I will start with the fuses first also there may be a chance that the hazardous light switch may just went bad too if the case is you will need to replace that and I will take it to mechanic. you always want to make sure your hazard lights work in case of emergency!

2003 subaru liberty b4 indicators left and right do not work and do not come up on dash as if they never existed bulbs all seem good checked fuses all seem good i have no idea


Did you check the flasher relay in the fuse box under the dashboard? If you have tail lights and brake lights then I'd be checking the flasher. I'd also check the fuse center under the hood of the car. Sometimes there are fuses for the flashers there also.

All rear lights blink when i use turn signal.


Failed ground wire, no doubt caused by corrosion. Check under the vehicle at the rear or in the flasher bulb areas. Your main rear lighting common earth wire is the culprit. If you cannot find the corroded wire, then go to any rear bulb and attach a grounding wire from the bulb ground to the chassis. This will 'repair' the other missing ground feeds. The indicator is being grounded through the other bulbs circuits, rather than to vehicle chassis. You need to locate a circuit schematic and check the ground point locations. It could be anywhere unfortunately, so adding a new ground wire is the alternative grounding replacement method.

My brake lights are not working, the signal and 4 way flashers work but not the brake lights, what could be the issue? My suv is a 96 gmc jimmy sls 4 door, 4wd.


If both brake lights stopped working at the same time it could be the bulb even though the flashers work, but more than likely it is a fuse. Check your fuse panel in the dash and also the fuse box under the hood.

No brake lights, turn signals, or 4-ways.


Did you actually check the bulbs? I believe your brake lights, signal lights, hazards all use the same bulb for each side.

Your brake lights may be your brake switch just above your brake pedal.
The signals could be your electronic flasher module (EFM) located under the dash near the steering column.
Your hazards may be affected by the EFM, but not likely and the switch for your hazards may be faulty

1998 Chevy Cavalier Z24 left rear brake/turn lamps will not work


Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working


check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.
