Brake lights won't work on 93 Subaru impreza. Fuse ok, bulbs ok. Brake light switch replaced 1 yr ago


Mr. Williams since you tried with fuse,bulbs and brake light switch with no success,why you do not try to check your circuit by using a tester and see whether you have any broken wire or bad earth?

Right rear brake and signal light won't work. not the bulb. All other signals work and front right works.


first eliminate the possibility that you have the wrong bulb in the wrong socket. it sounds dumb but going way back to 1157 bulbs there have been two rear tail light bulbs which will fit into the same socket but are electrically different. If you have ever driven down the road following a car which had one bright and one dim tail light, or brake light, then you have seen this in action.

since you have one good tail light assembly remove the bulbs, taking great care not to mix them up and make sure the bulbs are exactly same as in the non working assembly. i mean you have to look closely at the bulb's connection points as they will look very much the same.

if the bulbs are correct then you are looking at buying a new socket, or light assembly if the whole thing is wired into the car.

How do I change the brake bulbs on 99 Nissan Quest


The whole assembly will pop out with a screwdriver (carefully). Then the bulbs can be reached. Just push the whole thing back into the slots when you are done.

Brake lights won't come on changed switch and checked fuses under dash are there more fuses


Remove the brakelight bulb holder, If you pop out the entire assembly it will save your knucles some skin. Then you want to take some fine sandpaper and clean the contacts "on the housing" well, and coat the with a thin film of dielctric grease or vaseline. I'm sure this will resolve your problem. I've had to do this to numerous Volvo vehicles over the years. Also once you're finished, the dash indicator may "not" go out unless you purchase the bulbs from Hella because of their candlepower exclusivity.
