Brake light stop working


I can't imagine three brake lights all losing their grounds. You will need a volt meter to check (with the help of an assistant) to see if about 12 volts is available at the bulb socket's brake light socket (as measured to ground) when the brake pedal is depressed and held. Do the same for the other light and finally the third brake light. If there is a total loss of power at all the bulb sockets with the brake pedal depressed and held, check for about 12 volts coming to the brake pedal switch while not being depressed and that voltage comes out the other connection at the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If power comes in on one wire but doesn't come out the other side when pressing the pedal this means the switch is bad. Replace it with a new one. Ne advised that SOME vehicles brake lights don't come on if the key is off, on most they work at all times even if the key is off.

My running lights work my turn signals work why don't my brake lights


You either have a bad brake light switch or a bad fuse that powers your brake lights. Go to your fuse panel and check the fuse first. If it checks good then check the brake light switch. The switch will be located on the brake pedal at the top. There should be two wires into the switch. One will have power at all times. as you depress the brake pedal it makes the connection in the switch to the other wire which then sends power to the brake lights and illuminates the bulbs. Use an electrical tester to make sure you have power in and power out when the brake pedal is depressed.

Brake lights stay on


Hello. Under your brake pedal is a switch with a plunger on, that activates your lights when depressed. Just follow up along the pedal and you will see (probably) a white switch. It sounds like the plunger switch is stuck in. These are quite cheap to replace and you might be able to prise the plunger switch out to turn the brake lights off

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

Right and left brake lights do not work when brake pedal depressed. Both tail lamps work as well as both turn signals


Hi,
check the brake light switch located in the brake pedal area. Normal procedure is to remove the two wires and connect a jumper' wire between them, check and see if the rear brake lights operate. Check the brake light switch and see if it is adjustable. If so, re-connect the removed wires, adjust the position of the switch untill the brake lights operate,when the brake pedal is depressed, then secure the brake light switch.

Use a test light and see if there is power to the switch. Then depress the pedal and you should have power on both sides. If there is no power to the switch, check the harness from the fuse box to the switch. If it got that hot, it may have melted the wire covering in the harness. You can use a jumper wire to the power side of the switch and try the brake pedal. You can get an inline fused wire and connect to the power side wire and see if it blows the fuse. That will tell you if the feed in wire is grounded. If there is power at the switch and goes through when you press the pedal down, look at the harness under the truck, especially around connections. Hope this helps. Mike

Wont go out of park


Do the brake lights work? You may have a defective brake pedal switch. There is a switch which knows if the pedal is depressed. If it's not depressed it will lock the shifter in place. That switch is located above the brake pedal under the dashboard. If the brake lights DO work, then you may have a problem with the solenoid that locks the shifter. When you press the brake, you should be able to hear a small click come from the gear selector. You can try to replace the brake switch if the brake lights don't work. Should only cost a few $$.
