Brakelights not working

Brakelights are not working on my 1997 Chevrolet Lumina . Can it be the multiswitch on the steering column. My 97 GMC Jimmy needed this to correct irregular rear brake light problems. Is this a known problem?

Dear Customer,

IT 's a major problem with GMC models,i don't know why company not trying to fixe up this problem,but anyway you have to rearrange your sensors with reconnecting & cleaning you all wiring,

than its may work,but before that you must check your sensors that its work properly or not,

No brake lights or turn signals on 1997 chevy lumina


Check the fuses..If ok ,,then most likely the signal switch..Your brake light circuit runs through the signal switch as well..Get someone to watch your brake lights to see if they come on..Now push the brake down and move your signal switch around and see if the brake light comes on intermittently..If so its definetly your switch

The brakelights,dashlights and headlights all quit working on 1999 chevy lumina. The parking lights, turn signals snd high mount brakelight all work.


It sound like you may have a bad headlight switch. All of those other lights are wired though that switch as well. Be sure to check all fuses and headlight relay.

Left turn signal doesnt work and my brakelights


  1. Check the fuse make sure it is not busted and also use a designated amp only.
  2. Check the bulb and the wires also.

1997 Chevrolet Lumina : upper brakelight (window) works, lower brakelights don't work. Changed bulbs and fuse-no go. Most logical theory so far is that they are on seperate circuits, the lower lights run...


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START


I had this problem with my 97 Jimmy. It is your ignition switch. The switch that touches the tumbler gets wore down. You'll have to tear the steering column apart to get to it and you will need a really small torx driver (not sure what size). Good Luck.
