Question about 1995 Land Rover Discovery

Rear lighting i have a 95 discovery. i cant seem to figure out why i have no break lights. i have checked the fuses, bulbs and the switch on the brake pedal looks ok. also, the tail lights have a double filament, are they supposed to be blinkers too. because the only rear blinkers i have are in the bumper. any advise would be helpful. thank you.

I have a 97 discovery and went to change some of my bulbs out and noticed that if the bulbs are not in all tight and snug together then none of them will work. Make sure all the connections are good, this could help I had a loose bulb and secured it and they all came back on

Check with a voltmeter at the bulb contacts while someone is hitting the brakes if there is no current. its the wire they rot and a discovery has daisy chained rear lighting. so if the left or is it the righ is bad. then they both wont work. either way if one goes they dont work. its not hard to run a new wire ive done it for car max a dozen times on these vehicles.

Ford laser sedan kj lxi 95 model break lights need to be replaced

are both brake lights not working ? if so very unusual for both to go at same time so i'd check the fuse , fuse box lower dash drivers side lid/door will have list , if ok open the trunk and at the rear of the light clusters remove the brake bulbs, there will most likely be some sort of trim, carpet or even a small access panel to remove first,if bulb's are ok then it must be the switch which is located at the top of the brake pedal, easy to adjust disconect the wire from top of switch and turn switch anti clockwise one complete turn , refit wire and check if bulbs working , if not repeat the adjustment

Location of brake light switch fault on 2002 discovery freelander

The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

No brake lights

If the fuses, bulbs, switch are good then its your wiring, you have a break somewhere, check the switch behind your brake pedal, make sure you have power to the light sockets and they are not burnt, my wife has a ford edge and burnt right rear socket and the light still worked, go figure, anyways good luck

No break lights, 1999 villager

Check 20A fuse 51 in the fuse junction panel. This feeds power to the brake pedal position switch which, when closed, turns on the high mounted stoplamp and the rear park/stop lamps. The brake pedal position switch could be defective.

I have a 95 chevy blazer with no brake lights I have replaced fuses, bulbs, brake light switch, and the multifunction switch they still are not working what should I do

Go under the truck and check the wiring harness to the rear lights, they are prone to problems in the harness, probe it from where you get a light on a test light to where you don't, then isolate the break

Rear side brake lights won't work after fuses/bulbs replacement

If the high level brake lamp works and the other 2 lamps have good bulbs, then there is a power loss, most propably with the installation. You should go to an auto electrician to see where the break is.
If someone has recently done any work on the electrics, you should recheck. It is not a seperate fusable power supply system or brake switch for the high level brake lamp, it will take its power from the fused system that the other 2 have.
Hope this helps

What do the relays and fuses look like under the hook of a 96 s 10 blazer. Someone said to check theses and how do you. My brake lights dont work and the 10A fuse under the dash is good and i replaced the...

Did you check or replace the brake light bulbs?
It is more common to have burnt bulbs than a bad brake light switch or blown fuse.
Do you have orange signal lights and red brake lights at the rear?
Then the signal light switch will not affect the brake lights.....but....
If they are all red and you use the same bulbs for brake and signal....the brake light wiring goes through the signal light switch and could be affected there.
First....check for power getting to the brake light switch......and leaving it with a test light.......then go to the rear....pull a light assembly and check for power getting to the power? follow the wiring back to the switch looking for a bad connection.
The fuses and relays under the hood are usually in a black plastic box labeled fuses and or relays.

If your brake lights don't work Its because you blew the fuse  which Is located In the main fuse panel under steering wheel.  Without break lights your rover will fire up nice but wont shift out of park until you replace the fuse.  If your ABS Is acting up It Is also an easy fix.  Disconnect the ABS from each wheel.  You still got all wheel disc breaks that work great but no ABS.  Your other option is  thousands of $$.  If your breaks are weak check your master cylinder and make sure you got enough fluid and that you are not loosing the fluid.  If you notice you are leaking brake fluid because you have to keep filling it up but cannot find a leak anywhere.  I bet I know where It is.  Check your rear break lines and make sure one of them didn't get caught in your rear springs and pinched ever so slightly when you were doing dounuts In the snow.
Good luck,

Malfunctioning brake lights.

Most likely a short in your break line. You might also check the brake switch, but I would think if the break switch was going, it you wouldn't even have the third lite working...
