It sounds like the brake light switch has failed. It is located on a bracket under the dash near the top of the brake pedal arm. You could put a bridging wire across the terminals to confirm if the switch is out and the rest of the wiring is OK. If the lights then work replace the switch.

To remove switch, disconnect wiring, loosen locknut and unscrew switch. Replacement is reverse procedure. To adjust, screw in switch until operating button is fully depressed by pedal arm, tighten locknut and reconnect wires. Check for correct operation of lights.

Blowing brake fuse as soon as it touches, the only thing that stops it blowing is pulling a plug from the bcm, not sure if im just pulling power to the bcm or whether theres a bcm fault???

Hi Steve Is this a new fault has it just started to occur for no reason. You need to start with the basics i.e. have you recently replaced any globes? not necessary brake light globes ,If you have re check it make sure its the correct one,(check it against the other side). make sure it's not fitted incorrectly upside down. remove it and try brake lights again. Move onto your brake lights remove eye level globe and brake light globes left and right now try brake lights does it still blow fuse if not check all globes, connections and local brake light wiring for any shafing. Fit each globe one by one if it blows again remove that globe and try the others, Do you have tow bar and electrics fitted Check and make sure wiring in or around the socket has not come adrift and shorting out the brake light circuit. If all the above fails get it inspected by a Dealer or auto electrician, as the fault may be a lot more involved. Preferably a dealer as they will have the correct information on your vehicle. Good luck

Where do I locate the relay/flasher unit in a 2001 diesel Holden Rodeo to replace it?

IF the flasher works at all, it is not the flasher. They blink faster than normal when there is a wiring short.

Vt holden commodore brake lights dont work

There could be a couple of reason why your brake lights are not working these are all common faults.

1.first remove the brake lens and check globes.
2.Next check the globe socket as they tend to get hot and the plastic housing brakes away so the globes don't connect.
3.get a test light and check for power.
4.if everything is ok then I would be replacing the brake light switch under the dash that makes contact with brake pedal.

good luck

Holden captiva lx brake lights not working

It is common for the plastic brake light switch to get jammed or brake. Remove and make sure small centre rod moves. To remove just turn and release light a light bulb. If switch fails it will prevent brake lights and can also prevent gear selector to move and also make brake pedal feel spungy.
