No, but did you check the brake switch above the pedal? If not, try pulling the connector off the switch and shorting the connector terminals together using a paper clip. If this turns the brakes on, your switch is either not adjusted right or needs to be replaced.

Why no right side turn signal or brake light?


Check the bulbs, and turn signal relay under dash. And just to be sure about the fuse replace it with new 1 to if it start.

My signal lights and brake lights will not work I need to know if it's a fuse


The fuse is always the first thing to check, then put turn signal on (and ignition on) step out side and see if the front or rear bulbs turn on but don't flash. Turn on emergency flashers on, do they work? If not could be the flasher relay. Brake lights are trigered by a switch under the brake pedal or wired to the brake master cylinder.

Neither brake lights on both sides work, but middle light on truck activates, have checked bulbs on both sides and they appear good, also checked fusees which appeared good. Is there a brake relay switch...


Bulbs can look good but still be bad.
The third brake light operates on a seperate circuit than the regular brake lights but still off the same switch (there is no relay).
Put your head under the dash and look up at the brake pedal lever. You should see a bracket with the switch in it.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

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.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

What do the relays and fuses look like under the hook of a 96 s 10 blazer. Someone said to check theses and how do you. My brake lights dont work and the 10A fuse under the dash is good and i replaced the...


Did you check or replace the brake light bulbs?
It is more common to have burnt bulbs than a bad brake light switch or blown fuse.
Do you have orange signal lights and red brake lights at the rear?
Then the signal light switch will not affect the brake lights.....but....
If they are all red and you use the same bulbs for brake and signal....the brake light wiring goes through the signal light switch and could be affected there.
First....check for power getting to the brake light switch......and leaving it with a test light.......then go to the rear....pull a light assembly and check for power getting to the bulbs.no power? follow the wiring back to the switch looking for a bad connection.
The fuses and relays under the hood are usually in a black plastic box labeled fuses and or relays.
