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.

I have a 1990 dodge ramcharger and my trunk signals and brake lights quit working. Pulled the fuses under dash and all of them look good. Are there more fuses somewhere else? Or maybe a relay?


Turn signals have a relay it is called a flasher. Brake light have a switch which is usually at the top of the brake pedal. Should only have 1 fuse per circuit. Have you checked the fuse panel for power to and thru the fuses for the signals and brake lights? Have you checked for power at the flasher and at the lights themselves? You need to do those steps first and you should be able to find the issue.

Lowbeam headlights wont work, brake lights are out and check engine light is on...changed th dimmer switch, no luck


For the low beam problem, Swap relays 45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay 46 is for the Low Beams. If that fixes the light, replace the relay that cam out of position 46.
Since the high mounted brake light is working, that indicates that the brake switch is good. You need to check the bulbs in the rear tail light assembly, if they are good, check fuse #34.

My brake lights dont work and i am trying to find the fuse box


The fuse block that contains the brake light relay is under the left side of the rear seat.There is also
a fuse block under the right side of the rear seat. Another behind the dash under the steering column. And one more under the hood right front corner of the engine compartment. If the relay is
good, check the brake light switch for constant 12v in and 12v out when peddle is pushed.
The brake light switch is under the dash at the top of the brake peddle. Hope this helps.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

Hyundai grandeur 99 model-can't find relay/module for rear brakes


WHICH GLOBES (BULBS)? I presume Brake Lights? The circuit is a DIRECT CONNECTION at the brake SWITCH (brake pedal arm). If all your fuses are good, then I'd begin to suspect the brake lamp switch is defective.

Pass. side trailer turn and brake lights out 1999 ford explorer


if your vehicle lights are working all the fuses will be good. follow the cable from the towing socket on your vehicle , it will most likely go behind one of the rear lights to connect into your cars system,
check your tester where the cables join and you should find the problem. hope this helps.
