If the 3rd brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the 3rd brake light doesn't work, then it needs further investigation. The turn signal switch is in the steering column, the air bag must be removed and steering wheel must be pulled. Special tools are required. The airbag can cause serious injury.

HOW TO WIRE BRAKE LIGHTS FROM THIRD LIGHT 97 MONTE CARLO


Instead of improvising, why not get the stop lamps working the way they should be. You must be getting power through 15A fuse 23 in the fuse block and the stop lamp switch, otherwise the high mounted stop lamps would not work. Stop lamp power is routed through the turn signal switch and is applied to the tail/turn/stop-lamps. That should solve your problem

Fuse diagram for a 1990 toyota camry no brake lights but have running and turn , replaced bulbs ,brake switch not sure what else


reconize that the turn signals are involed in this circuirt and do they work is they should? The brake light switchs wire rith at the plug fails too the turn signal switch fails sometimes but not often. Does the thrid high mount brake light work? Make sure the bulbs in it are good to as they fail quicker the the regular lights. If the high mont works and the regular lights don't the turn signal switch or it's connections are likly to be it.

Try having someone watch ur lights as you tilt the steering wheel in different positions and pressing on the brake in each tilt position. Sounds strange but the brake light go through teh wiring in the steering column. I drive with my wheel tilted higher than normal to keep BOTH brake lights working.

96 monte carlo rear window brake light works but not brake lights. tail lights work, blinkers work, replaced brake switch and bulbs still not working


This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

Turn signal switch. With you foot on the brake have someone stand behind the car. Wiggle the turn signal lever and see if the the brake lights flicker.

Try pulling out your tail light then following your wires. you should have four going into the socket one for running light, brake light, and turn, follow those down. till you find where they go and if they keep going then those are not your ground. go back to the socket and take that last wire that runs down follow it till you get to the spot that it is grounded to and some times it will be grounded in with your license plate lights. if not directly to the frame

Brake lights work intermittently


It sounds like a wiring fault - an earthing problem. Have a look around the lights/inside the lights themselves.. rear and front lights, brake lights, etc ...check the wires for corrosion/splitting. In particular check any black earth leads where they attach to an earthing point.
