1994 Chevy C1500 truck. No rear brake lights


Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

The flasher unit is located under the dash, near the steering column. This could also be caused by a faulty ground wire. Check the wiring for broken, bare, or loose wires or connections.

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working


Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

My brake lights arent working but my emergency flashers are. would that be a fuse or a wiring problem?


if the third brake light is working and the left and right brake lights are not than the most likely problem is the turn signal multifunction switch.

If the third brake light is also not working and the bulb is good than check the brake light switch located above the brake pedal under the dash. There should be power on one wire all the time. There should be another wire that powers up with the brake pedal depressed. If no wires power up with the pedal depressed than the switch is bad.

I can get you specific wire information if you need it. Just let me know.

2001 Town & country brake lights not working, but the third brake light and tail lights are working. I also just replaced the brake light switch thinking it was the problem, but it wasnt


I think the brake light and turn signal are on the same bulb on these, correct?

If so do the turn signals work?

If they do than I would bet that the turn signal switch itself is the problem. The power for the brake lights is routed through the switch (except for the third brake light that is supplied power directly form the brake switch). The turn signal switch will interrupt power from the brake switch and supply power from the turn signal flasher depending on if the right or left turn signal is engaged.

Sometimes wiggleing the lever or pushing the four way flasher button with the brake pedal depressed will intermittantly cuase the brake lights to work. If this is the case than it is the turn signal switch that is causing the problem.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora and the brake lights are not working, I replaced both bulbs and the lights work but not when you depress the brakes, please help?


If the third brake light works than I would bet that the turn signal switch is bad.

Try this. With the brake pedal depressed try wiggle the turn signal lever and pushing/pulling on the four way flasher button. If the brake lights come on at any point while doing this than the switch is definitely bad.

Rear brake lights stopped working


Check your fuses of course,you probably did.Listen your not going to believe this,the wire at the brake light switch can be bad.sometines the wire can break inside the vinyl cover just a milameter.use a test light for presence of voltage at the switch and check a few inches back to see it voltage is present. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE VOLTAGE AT THE SWITCH!
