Check the fuse for the brake lights. then your brake light switch. Be certain the correct bulb was installed..and the socket for the light is not melted or deformed.

Only rear driver side brake light will not work when braking need help


Pastor Norman, Pastor Dave here.
Since you already replaced the left rear brake light bulb and that didn't help, please take that bulb socket out again as you did before, and find a way to test the bulb contact for electricity when the brake lights are on. You should get 12 volts out of the "hot" metal contact.
If the other two lights are on, and you have no current in the socket, you either have a bad socket, or a broken wire somewhere.
One way is to go back a few inches and skin off the insulation of the brake light wire and see if there is current back a few inches from the socket. Cover with tape when you finish.
If you decide to cobble a solution, you could run a good wire from the other brake light that works and splice it in to the dead wire.
Be Blessed.

Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

Why does the brake light sometimes not work


Open it up and you will probably find something loose at the bulb socket, either a wire or the socket itself may be bad. Try holding the bulb in firmly while someone hits the brake a couple times. Maybe you'll see the problem. That brake light is simply spliced into your other rear brake lights. So, unless the splice has worked partially loose, the problem should be at the high mount light there.

Both brake lights went out at the same time i changed the bulbs but the brake lights still wont light up when i depress the brakes but my rear lights still work


ok so what your saying is that the tail lights still work but no brake lights work, you've replaced the bulbs, next step is to check the fuse for the brake lights, if its bad just replace it, if its good, you need to check the brake light switch thats located at the top of the brake pedal arm, ( up under the dash where the brake arm attaches to the mount, you will see a switch,,, sometimes they just get stuck, so depress the brake and see if the switch is moving at all, if not, remove the switch and replace it as long as the adjustment looked to be correct.

I have a 2003 2 door explorer sport, just recently my turning signal and break light have stopped working on the passenger side!! I changed the light bulb, and nothing!! I changed the turning signal light...


No, because the left side is still working. The loose wiring was to the multifunction switch (turn signal).

Power gores through the turn signal switch to the brake switch on the brake pedal, then to the rear lights. Does the highmount brake lamp work?
At the RH lamp socket, Measure the voltage between the RH rear lamp C4032 pin 3, circuit 5 (OG/LB), harness side and ground. Should be 12 volts.

try that first.

Did you change the front and rear bulbs?

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.
