I push the brake, lights flicker, turn signal flashes and radio goes off. Alternator new, battery checked out O.k.


Sounds like a short in the brake light circuit - most likely near the brake pedal switch where the wires flex continuously.

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

Lights dim


Was any of the brake light bulbs changed recently, the wrong type of bulb may be used causing a short in the socket, and making the rest of the brake and signal circuit malfunction. I no bulbs were recently replaced, start with checking for corrosion in each bulb socket, signal and brake bulb sockets. Let us know what you find

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

I have no brake lights on my 2005 oldsmobile alero


Try wiggling the turn signal switch and applying the brakes.Have somebody check and see if the brake lights come on or flicker while wiggling the switch and applying the brakes. Try this after verifying the bulbs are good. If the brake lights come on after even briefly the turn signal switch needs replaced.

Brake lights dont work


Check the brake light switch, it is down on the brake pedal lever, you can dis-connect the wire connector at the brake light switch and check for broken wires at the connector, and then jumper the connector with a paper clip, if the brake lights come on then replace your brake light switch.

There might be more than one switch attached to the brake light pedal lever, the brake light switch usually only has two wires going to it when there are two switches.

If there is no problem with the brake light switch then you can suspect the turn-signal switch to be at fault, as all of the running lights, turn-signals, brake lights, and hazard lights are all ran through the turn-signal switch. You can also try stepping on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch and see if the brake lights flicker or come on.

My 1999 f250 brake lights do not work, but the turn signals do, and the tail lights do too, I put in a new brake light switch but there does not seem to be any power coming out of the switch


take the hazard button and tug and wiggle it real hard when pushing the brake pedal, if they start flickering, you will need a turn signal switch replaced.

i had the same problem had to replace the turn signal switch....GM for some reason wired the brake lights through the turn signal switch. to check if this is the case with yours. put some pressure on the turn signal lever as if you were going to turn on your brights and press your brake pedal and see if the lights work at that point that is how i found mine. hope this helps. if indeed they work with pressure on the turn signal lever. the new switch cost me $60 at autozone and that is with the steering wheel radio controls, make sure you get the proper switch should be part# sw771 if you have the radio controls on steering wheel and you will need a steering wheel puller and lock plate compressing tool.
