Check for any fuse blown or loose connection.

    Also check the brake light switch on the brake pedal. It may be out of adjustment or just faulty.

Hi,

Often brake lights and signal lights not working indicates a loose grounding of the rear electrical assembly. Other indicators would be dim and/or all the lights light up (but dimly) when engaging the breaks or activating any of the turn indicators. A way to verify this is to hardwire another/external grounding wire to any of the metal receptacles of the bulbs straight to a bare metal/chassis of the vehicle.

Of course the standard procedure of checking the fuses, the harness connectors and the wire harness themselves still apply.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If I may add, there is a fuse bank inside a compartment that is located inside of the trunk. It is on the left side fender well and they are for the rear lights.

    Cheers.

3rd Brake light doesn't work on a 2005 Malibu Ls


The most common reason for the 3rd brake light not to work is mostly due to a blown bulb, some cars have two or three bulbs in the 3rd light, start by replacing the bulb and go from there. good day.

Right break light is not working on my 2000 malibu. Switch light bulb but break light does not work. Turn signal works and hazards work..


is it both lights? If yes, check 15 amp stop light fuse first. If good, check brake switch above pedal.

If only one brake light isn't working, you have a broken wire. See diagram below to trace wires.

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?


If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

Rear turn signals and brake lights out. Front signals and rear tail lights work fine.


the brake lights and the rear turn signals should be the same bulb check the bulbs to make sure they are not blown does your third brake light work if all brake light are out and the bulbs are good check the brake light switch on the brake pedal

ALL BREAK LIGHTS NOT WORKING


Have you checked your brake light fuse? If it is good do your rear turn signals work? If you have turn signal and no brake lights it is probably the turn signal switch these are a common problem and your power for your brake lights goes through your turn signal switch. Sometimes it is actually the hazard switch that melts but this can not be serviced alone. If you have no rear turn signals and no break lights it could still be the turn signal switch but is more likely to be a wiring problem in the rear usually trailer wiring T connections. Chiltons has wiring diagrams in there manuals but they are not always accurate. Let me know if I can help you further and please rate.
