I have no brake light


Check the pedal switch that engages the lights. There is a button switch when your brake pedal travels down that turns the brake lights on. If the switch is defective or miss-aligned your brake lights wont turn on.

2001 Town & country brake lights not working, but the third brake light and tail lights are working. I also just replaced the brake light switch thinking it was the problem, but it wasnt


I think the brake light and turn signal are on the same bulb on these, correct?

If so do the turn signals work?

If they do than I would bet that the turn signal switch itself is the problem. The power for the brake lights is routed through the switch (except for the third brake light that is supplied power directly form the brake switch). The turn signal switch will interrupt power from the brake switch and supply power from the turn signal flasher depending on if the right or left turn signal is engaged.

Sometimes wiggleing the lever or pushing the four way flasher button with the brake pedal depressed will intermittantly cuase the brake lights to work. If this is the case than it is the turn signal switch that is causing the problem.

My shifter won't shift. It seems like it is locked. I press on the brake but the little knob on the shifter that you need to push in to engage the shifter won't budge.


I'm assuming you're talking about an automatic transmission. When you press on the brake pedal, you engage a switch under the pedal which turns your brake lights on, and also engages a solenoid in the shifter which allows you to shift the car out of Park.

That said, are your brake lights working? If your brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal, chances are the shifter solenoid/actuator is broken. If your brake lights DO NOT come on when you press the brake pedal, chances are you have a faulty brake light switch.

Regardless which part is to blame, these are pretty simple and inexpensive repairs.

Good luck, and if this helped, please rate my answer!

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not working properly. With lights off Driver side no brake light when brake is engaged. With lights on and all rear lights on, engage brake - no driver brake light...


The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

My brake lights won't turn off and the brakes are not engaged


the brake light switch may be bad, or the brake pedal is not coming back enough to turn the switch off, look up under the dash where the brake brake is, and you may see if the pedal is depressing the switch properly.

1994 Camry V6 XLE Interior Brake Light on; Brake NOT engaged


The brake light is on, most likely, due to a low fluid condition in the master cylinder reserviour. There is a sensor that measures the volume of the brake fluid. If it is low, the sensor lights the light. The fluid level lowers proportionally to the wear of the brakes.

Your windows are not rolling up p, most likely, because you need a master switch assembly on your driver-side door.
