Hello! Since the vehicle is a '99 and a truck, I would suspect poor ground connections at the brake light connectors...Check the sockets for rust and corrosion...The brake light sockets are a multiple ground...If you have a meter set it to the X10 ohm scale...Using a jumper wire, read from the center of the - battery post to the ground connections of the brake lights...Should read less then 50 ohm's...

Changing the bulb aggravated a resistive ground at the brake light multiple...I would remove bulbs and sandpaper the inside of all sockets and the ground wire to insure it is on bare metal chassis...Send a comment with results...

I have a suzuki xl7 2005 model my brake lights are not working I've checked fuses and also the third brake light, fuses are good but it looks as though the bulbs on the third light are blown whatcould


all brake lamps are dead.
and fuses are good. (did you check the right ones, or all?)
what about 3rd lamp?
if they look blown they are, why question that for $1 lamp.
replace lamps that are blown, the filament goes byebye.
fuse #9 is STOP, replace this on suspission
fuse that look ok, can have hair line cracks, we test them with a meter. so as not to guess...
next is this power 12vdc from stop fuse goes to the
stop switch and if stopping (foot brake) the output goes to 12vdc and all lamps on rear (stop)glow.
its cave man simple (unlike new cars that computers do all that)
now my advice, replace all 3 lamps
or take them out 1 by 1 and try them 1 by 1.
because lamps can SHORT and blow that fuse.
all there can be hand for $3,... and a new fuse for 50 cents.

My left brake lamp wont work and i dont know where the fuse is for it


If the other brake light works, it is not a fuse problem,
common sense

If a fuse ever does blow, you have to find out why

Replace a blown fuse & it will blow again 9 out of 10 times

Replace the lamp if it is burnt out.

Fthe tail light works but the brake light doesn't work, it probably is the module that has a circuit board. I have replaced it 2 or 3 times on my 2004 XL Envoy ... can I get a part number and location...


First let's determine which brake lights are not working. Does the high mounted brake light work? Do both left and right brake light not work? If none of the brake light work, the problem could be the brake light switch at the brake pedal OR fuse #12 in the underhood fuse panel.
If only the bake lights at the corner lamp assembly don't work, check fuse #34 in the rear fuse panel.
The module your are referring to is the circuit board located in each of the corner lamp assemblies, check on website www.compnine.com for the part number of this item. I don't believe this is your problem though.

1992 lincol town car,no rear lights or brake lites, only turn signal and hazard lights work, front lights fine. And about the same time instrument cluster light went out.


The Park Lamps and Instrument Panel illumination lamps are controlled by the lighting control module. The problem could be either the headlamp switch or the Lighting control module. Most likely, the head lamp switch.
The most likely cause of the brake lamps not working would be a failed Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch. It could also be caused by the multifunction switch. To find out if it is the BPP, check for power at the BPP switch. One terminal has a Light Green and Red (LG/R) wire and the other has a Plain Light Green (LT GN) wire. The LG/R wire should be hot at all times. The LT GN wire should be hot only when the pedal is pressed down.

If there is no power at all, there is probably a blown fuse at fuse #10 (20 Amp) in the Central Junction Box (CJB) located uder the left side of the dash. If this fuse is blown, you have a short circuit between the CJB and the BPP switch.

If there is power only on the LG/R wire even with the pedal pressed, then replace the BPP switch.

If there is power on both sides of the BPP then check fuses #20 (7.5 Amp) and #22 (20 Amp) also locatedin the CJB.

If fuse #20 is blown, you have a short between the BPP and the Lighting Control Module. If fuse #22 is blown, you could have a short anywhere from the BPP through the Multifunction Switch all the way back to the brake lamps themselves.

The Brake lamps, Turn Signals, and Park Lamps all share the same ground, so if the Turn Signals are working, it is not likely a ground problem.

I have a 2002 pontiac aztek. My rear right signal/brake lamp does not work. When i signal left, the front and rear left lights flash normally. When i signal right, the front right light flashes normally...


as for the faster flashing thats as simple as a blown bulb, replace the bulb and see if that fixes the problem, it may fix the lot because the other symptoms you mention are a bad connection, if bulb is fine check the connection isnt loose or corroded over. if it is simply file it back to establish better connectivity,

Brake lights not working at tail lights but the light in the rear window does come on when brake pedal is pushed.....regular tail lights come on...right and left turn signals also work ....flashers...


the upper brake light works differently than the outer lights. check your brake light switch by the brake pedal.It will have a plunger switch on it. The center brake lamp works off a power convertor instead off the brake light switch. The switch has a separate wire for that which is still working

All lights work and brake light at top works. brake lights on bottom left and right don't work. It was hook up to trailer wires connection. going down the road and when you turn on the right turn signal...


Check a few things...
- The bulbs
- Check for ground at brake lamp connectors
- Check your wiring at the connectors for power
- Check for another fuse blown
- Do not hook up the trailer until you fix the ground problem on the trailer
- On some models, there is a module to control the rear/trailer lighting system. There may be a problem in the module.
