My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Brake lights don't work


This sounds like a bad brake light switch, this switch is located on the bracket that holds brake pedal,you can test for power at switch,also if you remove connector and jump terminals with a wire and see if lights lite, if lights light then switch is bad,

My tail lights work but the brake lights do not


The first thing that I would check is the fuse. If the fuse it ok then check the bulbs. Sometimes when one bulb goes out then the whole circuit just kind of shuts down. If this does not fix your problem then you are looking at a bad brake light switch. This is the switch that is located at the top of the pedal and it completes the circuit for the brake lights to turn on.

Brake lights on my accord 2005 wont work with new bulbs


The brake lights are activated when you depress the brake pedal.  When depressed the brake light switch, which is located on the brake pedal level, allows the circuit to be complete.  Check for power on one side of switch then depress pedal and see if it allows power to other side of switch.  Keep me posted

1992 Honda Accord LX Brake Light Switch Repair


Of course you can make this repair! I'm wondering about the faulty bulb that shorted out all the brake lights...not sure if that's what happened. Your brake light switch is located on the brake pedal, up above where your foot goes. It has a plug in connector which you unplug, then loosen the locknut where it attaches to the pedal.Put in the new switch, lock nut 1st, then plug it in. Note that the locknut is the adjustment point that determines when your brake lights go on. Adjust the locknut so that the brake lights go on when the pedal is depressed within 1/2 an inch (13mm)of pushing down on it. If the switch is adjusted without enough play (say 1/8 inch or less), brake lights may flicker on and off when you go over a bump.If over 1/2 inch, brake lights might go on only if great force on pedal is used (or not at all, yikes!).For good diagrams of parts check out South Bay Honda (hondapartscheap)web site. You enter the year, model, engine, and you can scroll thru tons of parts. If you have any more questions, do not hesitate to post it for me. countrycurt0

Brake lights on GTI


Check to see if the brake light switch is working first by putting a jumper on the switch that is located just above the brake pedal arm.
This switch is pushed when you press the brake pedal, and turns on the brake lights just like turning on a light switch.
I may be out of adjustment too.
Otherwise, you may have all the brake light bulbs burned out.
I would try a new bulb in one brake light first.
