Use a test lamp or a meter to checck onthe + voltage at the brake lamp. If not present then you must check on the brake light switch mounted on the servo.
You have the +12 available here in the switch to put the lamps on.
Check the ground to the brake lamp bulb inthe harness.
Hope you have also checked the brake light fuse.

I have a 1998 gmc sonoma my brake Lights dont work but everything else does except the right blinker changed bulbs didn't help


Check brake light fuse first. If ok, the brake light switch at the brake pedal may be defective. Try wiggling the switch to see if the brake lights work. If not, disconnect the wiring connecter and if it is just 2 wires cross them over and see if the brake lights come on. If they do, the brake light switch is bad. If wiggling the switch makes the brake lights work, I would suggest a brake light switch as well

Brake lights do not turn on


Sounds like you may need to replace brake bulb terminals they do get wore out were the bulb goes in easy to replace so new terminals easy to splice with wire splice kits don't twist and tape do this with splice kits or you will be always repairing take time do it right

1995 saab 900 convertible turn signals and brake lights not working


With the age of the car it could be that your grounds are bad somewhere which explains why essentially no lights work ... even though the bulbs/fuses are OK. You get power to these lights by having positive wires going to the light bulbs and the negative side of the circuit coming from the frame of the vehicle (referred to as the ground).
Pull all the connectors that you can see and make sure they are not corroded.
Check also that no associated relay that has anything to do with the rear lighting is not bad.

Brake lights on saab 900 2.3 95 model year


If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.

Brake lights don't work


it could be a faulty brake switch.

it is located at the brake pedal. the brake pedal itself is the one pushing the brake switch to turn it off. it is a normally closed switch.

Breaklights


1st get autozone to clear the code, (free) The only thing I can think of that goes out when car is off and on when lights turn on is the parking lights on the side, the wires could be touching in the conduit, start car and pull brake fuse out, if the lights stay on you have a short, if only the park lights stay on (double filiment) look at the lighting system, but if the brake and driving light stay on, sounds like an ecu problem.
