Brake lights not functioning--bulb is not burnt out and mechanic can find no short circuits or sensor issues. Lights will stop working for a day or so then come back on for maybe a few weeks then go on and off again.

Running lights and brake light dont work, plus everytime i turn my lights on my park lps fuse blows, everything else works


There may be a bulb in one of the brake sockets that is short circuiting the entire lighting system. Check the bulb sockets burnt or bad bulbs.

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

1997 Rav 4 auto transmission, will not shift out of park unless I remove cover and depress solenoid with a pen. At the same time, a fuse for the rear tail lights and interior and dome lights was burnt out....


The problem is likely in your lighting circuit.Just to be sure,check the amperage rating on the new fuse-make certain it is the right fuse for that spot.Then,install another fuse,and step on the brake,no other lights on.If it shifts have some one make sure the brake lamps work,if the fuse blows before you shift(listen for the pop) you have a short in the brake lamp circuit or a bad bulb.Not sure which bulb? they're cheap-replace them both! Good luck

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Brake lights out at separate times, but both bulbs okay.


i would double check the bulbs, i dont know much about escapes but most cars run a twin filament bulb, one is for taillights, the other for stoplights, if its not that it may be a brake sensor fault or somethings shorting out somewhere.

Brake box in the trunk


The small box that you are describing is the "taillamp sensor". All of the power for the taillamps runs thru this box, and then to the taillamps, and its basic function is to determine the voltage "draw" on the taillamp circuits. When the draw is incorrect, as in a burned out bulb, this box lights up the "taillamp failure" bulb on the dash panel. You are going to need to visit a Toyota dealer's parts dept to purchase the taillamp sensor box. It is not available in the aftermarket.
