It is more than likely that when you heard and or saw the short it remained shorted thus taking down everything on that particular circuit. It should have blown the fuse but if in the past the fuse blew and replaced with a too high a current rating it would not blow the fuse. Go back to the original bulb location remove the bulb and try the brake lights again. If you are working alone, pound aut a weight on the brake pedle and remove the bulb, move the wires around and watch to see if at some point the other bulbs lights go on. You will then be able to more accuratly isolate the short location. Good luck

Brake light fuse popping

have you got a normal bulb (2 pins) in the place of a brakelight bulb (3 pins) that would pop the fuse... Also replace both brake bulbs as one may be shorted internally.

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on

Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...

Open the hood and look behind the headlights. Take the plug wire off and remove the retaining should screw off. As far as the brakelights, you need to pop the trunk and remove the bulbs from behind the lens.

No brakelights or taillights

Yop may have a very common problem unique to that year car.
I have two definite fixes for you:
Open the trunk. Look at the wiring harness that is hooked onto the driver side arm that holds the trunk lid to the body. Untape the wiring harness from the edge of the trunk lid back towards the driver rear seat. You are most likely going to find a broken wire or two, prob a green with a red tracer. The repeated action of lifting/closing the trunklid seems to break the brake/tail power wires. If the wiring harness is perfect, no breaks, AND you have a rear spoiler, remove the trunk interior trim that faces the driver side 1/4 panel. Hidden behind a brace will be a small box. This is the brake lamp sensor. If it has failed, you may need to replace this box. Either fix should resolve your issue.
