Do the lights turn on on the dash when you signal left or right?

Do the four way flashers work?

If no to either of these check the turn signal flasher module.

Lower brake lights no longer work on my 2002 chevy tahoe but the 3rd brake light works fine. Checked fuse and bulbs and everything works fine. Just the 2 lower brake lights dont work.


Most of the time the problem is in the turn signal switch. The third brake light circuit bypasses the turn signals.
Someone would need to check brake light power in and out of the turn signal switch.

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

Seems that the hazard switch nalfucntion and no


Replace the multi-function switch in the steering column. The 3rd brake light is powered directly off the brake switch while the regular brake lights are wired thru the turn signal switch. Common problem

95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail lights work, turn signals work, stoplight switch seems to work ie 3rd brake light working, fuse is ok, changed bulbs, but no rear brake lights.


If the third brake light works and the regular ones don't, it is most likely a bad turn signal (multifunction) switch. The switch is able to kill the brakes lights to run the turn signals, and in rare circumstances does this. I've seen it several times. It could also be wiring, especially near the turn signal switch, but it is usually the switch.

The brake lights my 2000 Chevy Blaser do not work, the turn lights work and the running lights work and the brake light on top of the blazer is working


We bought a 2000 Blazer in '02 and one day I noticed there were no brake lights, but the 3rd light on top worked fine. I did some research online and found out there was a recall on this problem due to the hazard switch on the column. I also found out if I wiggled the hazard switch a certain way, the brake lights worked. I was able to get by for awhile by wedging a 'widget' beside the hazard switch button and the hole in the column cover. This worked fine until someone would knock the widget out of place.
I finally got around to having the switch replaced at a local dealer. All was fine until last week when I was told the brake lights were out again and I found out my hazard lights didn't work either. I changed out the switch assembly myself this time, and once I had it out I saw what happened. The brake light voltage comes in to the assembly on a white wire, and the first contact this goes through is on the hazard switch. In my case the contact had obviously overheated from the brake light current and melted the plastic holding the contact in place, thus breaking the circuit to the brakes. Either a poor design or too much current for the circuit to handle.
Soooooo now I am in the process of replacing the four bulbs in the tail/brake light assembly with 3 watt Luxeon LED plug-in replacements. The current draw of the original bulbs was measured at 2.2 amps at 13.8 volts, times 4 bulbs makes about 8.8 amps that goes through the contact in the hazard switch whenever the brakes are stomped. The LED replacements draw .2 amp each, so times 4 will be .8 amp or less than 1/10th of the original equipment bulbs. These LED bulbs in my opinion are as bright or brighter than the original equipment and hopefully will help from burning out another switch assembly.. David

Brake light on 2001 chevy blazer LT 2wd


When my blazer did this they had to replace part of the wiring harness in the steering wheel. It took forever for them to get the parts because we live in nowhereville, but once it was in it works again and no problems. I had to take it to the actual chevy dealer because none of the other places had a clue. good luck.
