Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have the same problem, with the back brake lights not working but the one in the rear window does. I bought a replacement steering column at a junkyard, Is the multi function switch the module connected to the turn signal, cruise control, wiper, hazard arm or something different ? Thanks

I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban v1500. All lights work except for the Brake Lights and Turn Signals. The Blinker switch on steering column is broken, other than that everything is fine.


Yes, the brake light signal on American cars is routed through the turn signal switch. A new switch should restore both your turns and your brake lights.
American cars use the same bulb filament and same wire to the rears for both brakes and turns. Press the brakes when turning and both rear brakes will light, but since one side travels through the flasher relay, that side will blink, while the other side has a steady light.

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?


If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!

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

replace the turn signal switch in the column.its also known as a multifunction switch. you have to remove the cover around the steering column to access the switch. The brake light wiring also goes to this switch.

Rear brake lights stopped working


Check your fuses of course,you probably did.Listen your not going to believe this,the wire at the brake light switch can be bad.sometines the wire can break inside the vinyl cover just a milameter.use a test light for presence of voltage at the switch and check a few inches back to see it voltage is present. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE VOLTAGE AT THE SWITCH!

Drivers side rear turn signal and brake light not working


I've noticed the same problem with my 2001 Ford Exployer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend drives my truck she raises the steering column, and when I'm driving, I lower the column. I noticed when I was driving recently the left front turn signal kept flashing quickly, thought it was the bulb, but changed and still happening. Today I took apart the steering column cover and noticed the wiring for the turn signals and hazards were loose. To fix this problem I pulled the wires out of column more as to not stress the connection. So far this has fixed the problem.
