    High brake light works fine. Low brake lights do not work. All bulbs work fine. I've changed fuses for tail lights and stop lights with no improvement.

    I, too, have this same problem with my car. All the fuses are fine, and the bulbs are fine. The brake light in the back window works, but the read ones do not. This is crazy.

    My problem is "How do you replace the High Brake light (aka 3rd brake light)?" It's not shown in the owners manual!

    I just went to the dealership where I purchased my car because my brake lights are all out...they checked the fuses and the lamps--and they said they were all good. I'm taking it in, again, to see if the brake pedal sensor has malfunctioned?

    Ha. Same brake light problem in my '06 Sonata GLS. Replaced both lights at last oil change, replaced again last week. Light went out again so I took it to the dealer but GUESS WHAT? The lights worked! They can't do anything for me until I bring it in when they are not working for them. Is there an obvious manufacturing malfunction that should be fixed? Please.....I do not want to go through much more of this aggravation.

    I have this same problem with my 2006 Sonata. All the fuses are fine, and the bulbs are fine. The brake lights in the back window seems to work most of the time however, at times the back window does not work but the others do.

  • mwillard Jan 09, 2009

I looked at recalls and discovered that there is a recall starting in August 2009 for the brake light switch that lists all these problems as well as the ESC light coming on. The dealers are instructed to replace the brake light switch free of charge.

Stop lamps do not light > 1.Bulb burned out 2.Stop lamp fuse (15A) blown 3.Stop lamp switch faulty 4.Wiring or ground faulty FUSE INSPECTION 1. Be sure there is no play in the fuse holders, and that the fuses are held securely. 2. Are the fuse capacities for each circuit correct? 3. Are there any blown fuses? If a fuse is to be replaced, be sure to use a new fuse of the same capacity. Always determine why the fuse blew first and completely eliminate the problem before installing a new fuse.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata and the brake lights (all of them) are not working. I checked the fuse and changed the brake bulbs. Do you have any other suggestions?


Check the following :
1. First of all check the fuse of the brake lamp circuit. use a multimeter to check the +12 volt or use a test lamp of 12 volts.
2. Check the brake lamp pressure switch which is mounted on the master cyclinder- brake pedal. check for connection fault , check for voltage on switch as it must contact when the brake is applied .
3. chek the line to the brake lamp/tail lamp assembly . Check the GROUND connection of the lamp unit, check the holders.
A voltage absence till the lamp end will confirm the area of fault.

2006 Sonata brake lights don't work except rear deck light.


Check the connection at the brake light switch for power comming out to the barke lights,try feeding power to the brake lights manualy using a jumper wire from your fuse box or battery,unplug the wire from the switch and put power to the harness if everything is OK the brake lights will work,then you need a new switch.
