Check for voltage at brake light harness. If no voltage replace switch.
Don't know if this helps but there is a tsb technical services bulletin on the brakes

    answering hyjjacker, Carol. not 2008 guy
    well it can only be 4 things, in simple electrics.
    1: fuse blown (marked BRAKES, not breaks)
    2: wires bad. (end to end and connectors
    3; brake switch bad.
    4: lamps bad or the sockets bad.

    if the fuses test good,
    fuses that look bad are
    fuse that look ok, can be bad, hair line cracks humans cant see,... we test fuse, ask
    or read book, on autoelectrics?

    then we use this magic device,
    called a voltmeter, (we learned in boy scouts)long ago but nobody cares now.

    its measure voltage.
    if you get 12vdc at the rear side of the brake switch (pressed,keyon)
    then its working, from there forward.
    if not work forward.
    if yes, work to rear.
    we go to the left rear first.
    most USA cars, are harness to left side.
    unlike cars say in UK.
    the brake lamp got 12vdc top it
    yes,
    if yes, good, if no wire is bad between there
    and the switch.
    no,yes, its there, i check ground,(foot still pressing brakes ,dig?)
    omg ground on the socket is 12vd
    bad ground.

    see?

As you probably have researched, the brake lights are fused with others but it might be worth checking anyhow.

Most brake lights are operated by either a pedal switch under the dashboard or a pressure switch located on the output side of the master cylinder; some vehicles have two separate switches in case of the failure of one.

It might be a good time to think about having an aftermarket manual for your car; they should be available from either or both, Haynes and Chilton. Having one lets you speculate on the reason for problems you are having in other areas and give you some protection against a lying mechanic.
(Yeah, they do exist.)

Hi there!

Start at the beginning - the foot pedal switch.
It's usually mounted above the pedal, but you may need to be a contortionist to see it. Remove the connectors and check the switch.

If this doesn't solve it, contact me again & we'll go on from there.

If this solves the problem, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

Have you checked the stop lamp isolation relay on the engine compartment fuse box? I think that could be damaged. Good luck.

I have a 2002 dodge caravan break light problem


You have a fuse or relay out. Check fuse 26 and 3. Find a good relay sometimes they put a few spares in the box and switch them out until they work

Brake lights out


Hello

If your break lights are out, most likely it is not a bulb, because chances are slim that both would go out. And most likely it is not the connections where the break lights are because again, chances slim that both would go out same time. So, this brings us to fuse panel or the break relay. So, look in your owners manual it should tell you were your fuse panel is and what fuse is for the break lights. Most likely it would say break lights on the inside cover of the fuse box to tell you which fuse it is. Then if it is blown, you need to replace it with same amp fuse. I hope this helps, but I am pretty sure it is just a fuse. Thanks Mike

Brake lights not working. Niether stop lamps or overhead brake light bar work. All other rear lights work. Fuses for both lights are OK.


The most common problem for this fix is a New Replacment Brake Light Switch. It is located and mounted to the brake pedal assembly.

My break lights aren't working


If all of your lights inside and out arent working, then its sounds like an electrical isuue. that cost as much as $1500 dollars. But i would start with checking the fuses in your relay box under the hood. That is usually where the lights fuse is at. Some cars have two fuse boxes and a relay box, one fuse box is inside the car, one is under the hood, and the relay box is under the hood. So i would check the relay box under the hood or fuse box if you can find one. granted your brother checked them all, it sounds to me like an obvious blown fuse... good luck

Cooling fans do not work


Hi Remoman,
If the cooling fans are not working, there are a few quick things you can check.

Firstly if you have any electrical equipment you can check for power at the plug with a test light (you can buy one for 10 bucks) If there is power then it is the fan itself or the coolant temp sensors that are the problem. If there is no power then check the following;

Firstly all the connections and plugs etc, make sure they are plugged in correctly.
Secondly chech the fuse's, there should be a fuse for the cooling fans, it would be a good idea to replace it even if it does not appear broken as they sometimes break without showing.
Also the relay, you can test the relay by removing another relay that is working eg. headlights, and switching it with the fan relay to see if this helps. Just remember to switch it back.

If none of the above help then you may need to get the help of a mechanic that can test the curcuit and find out where there is a break.

Check the relays. Sometimes relay fuses will go bad or get stuck with age. Since all of this are probably on one circuit . Changing the relay may help.
