When I start car taillights come on but no brake lights or third light in window


Well your parking lights should not come on when you start the car unless you have turned on light switch. Most cars you must step on the brake to start, so the brake lights would be on. Your problem maybe a burnt out bulb on rear window lite.

TEST: have someone watch the rest and push on brakes see what lights. If 2 tail lite then its blub.
If non light its the fuse in box underdash.
Now take foot off brake and turn on lights and emergency flashers walk around check all lights then step on brake and see if brakes light up.

Replace bulbs or fuses as needed.

Hope this helps Mike

Tail lights stay on.


Are you sure they are not the brake lights? Have someone step on the brakes and see if these lights change in intensity or if other lights come on. If you don't see any difference when someone steps on the brake, then these probably are the brake lights staying on. There should be an adjustable switch touching the brake pedal arm. You will have to loosen a lock nut to adjust the switch until the brake lights go off. Then re-tighten the lock nut without letting the switch move again.

The shifter is locked and engine turns on but can not shift from park


1st, have someone step on brake pedal while you check to see if your brake lights are working, if yes proceed to step 2, if not check your brake light fuse(Left side of dash fuse#20- 10amp)IF fuse is good replace brake light switch on brake pedal. 2nd Step (brake lights ok) Turn key on engine off, press and release brake pedal several times slowly, listen for a click and and pulse on shifter handle. IF yes you have a shifter malfunction replace shifter assembly. IF no, inspect shift interlock solenoid and or relace solenoid and cable. You should see a small access cover about the size of a peanut around base faceplate of shifter assembly use small screwdriver and remove cover, use screw driver to press button underneath plate and release shifter into reverse and drive gears(this is manual overide) if you need to move vehicle in the meantime.

1998 gmc sierra-no brake lights,bulbs ok,new brake switch,possible wiring?? Help


Try this possibilities to locate the fault. First get your voltmeter or 12v test lamp out. Check the 30 amp Brake (#2) maxi fuse in the under hood junction box.Fuse should have 12v at both sides at all times.
If okay proceed.
Go to the brake light switch. The orange wire should have 12v at all times. The white wire should have 12v when stepping on the brake.
If okay, proceed.
Next thing is the brake lamp relay in the underhood fuse box. Swap the relay with one that looks just like it and recheck the brake light operation. If the relay is no good replace it.
If the relay is swapped and still not working, see if you can feel the relay clicking when someone else steps on the brake pedal.

batt is power from the maxi fuse 12v all times
sls is the white wire from the brake switch 12v with brake applied.
gnd is body ground 0v all times
mfs goes to the multi function switch 12v with relay activated
the circuit is simple—power from the brake light switch white wires turns on the relay which then sends power back to the multifunction switch for distribution to the rear lights.
if you jump terminals batt and mfs the brake lights should come on.
If you have no power at terminal sls with the brake applied then you have a wiring fault white wire between the brake light switch and the relay
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
