I'm having trouble with my brake lights on my 07 Colorado both brake lights dont work the passenger side running light works but the driver side doesn't both turn signals work the high mount brake light...


There is a module on the passenger side behind the rear wheel mounted to the body. It goes bad. On the drivers side is where the grounds are located, on or close to the frame. Check these first.

I have 1999 Blazer with brake light out on driver side only. All other lights work. Replaced bulbs but nothing changed. Swapped the working lights from the other (right side) with the driver side but...


THE BRAKE LIGHTS DO GO THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. TO TEST, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER AROUND THE THE COLUMN, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH MUST BE IN THE OFF POSITION. YOU WILL NEED TO EXPOSE THE WIRES UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. DO NOT DISTURB THE WIRES IN THE YELLOW JACKET. THEY ARE AIRBAG WIRES. YELLOW PLUGS YELLOW JACKETED WIRES ARE AIRBAG.THE WIRE IN QUESTION HERE IS YELLOW BUT IT IS NOT IN A YELLOW JACKET, [ SLEEVE ]. NOW, PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. THE YELLOW WIRE IS LEFT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE, DARK GREEN IS RIGHT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE. BRAKE PEDAL DEPRESSED, IF BOTH OF THOSE WIRES HAVE POWER, ALL OF THAT IS OK. IF THE YELLOW WIRE HAS NO POWER TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD

Tail light out replaced both brake & tail lite bulbs nothing


It sounds like your brake light switch is out.  It's located on the brake pedal and is relatively easy and cheap to replace.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Rear Drivers side brake(possibly E-brake) locking while driving


if you have disc brakes you may just have worn out the pads, the squeaking would be the "squealer", the locking up could be the caliper piston being forced out by the brake booster (when shifting), which would make sense if it's a disc system. If that be the case, a new brake pad would be the solution, assuming you haven't worn the rotor out already.

Driver side brake light not working


Test the circuit board for power where the socket goes in. If there is power there you might have a bad socket. BMW's are good for that. The socket contacts corrode away and make no contact to the circuit board. I am guessing the new lights came with new sockets right. Look at the connector at the circuit board for corrosion and clan the contacts there too.

Mr cars brake lights have stopped working


I take it the bulbs are good.
Look under the drivers side dash at the brake pedal. You will need a torch. There is a brake switch there and it may need readjusting or replacing.
