    Did the brake pedal switch solve this problem? I also have this issue 2002 freelander.

    same thing on my 2004 SE3.
    did find a puddle of water inside the toolbox cargo space around an electrical connector. could that be shorting brake lights out?

    Both my brake lights stop working at the same time and also changed everything, i.e. bulb and fuses to no avail.



    I will be trying to check the brake pad switch when i get home but don't know what I am looking for.

The brake light Swich on the brake pedal ( top 1 the other is cruise control ) may be faulty , also make sure you are testing the lamps on the bumper the top ones are only fog lights ( Spent hours on wrong bloddy ones - wifes car)

Don't always trust auto parts store to give you the right replacement parts. Twice I was given the wrong replacement lamps, double dimple connectors instead of single dimple. Once I got the proper replacement bulbs into the proper sockets (single dimple for the bumper and double dimple for the taillights up by the rear gate) ALL the lamps, bumper and taillights, worked properly when the brake peddle was deployed.

SOURCE: rear brake lights stopped working

brake light switch fault, above the brake pedal, may have two wires or four depending on variation of model, not expensive to replace.

Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: The main brake lights don't work on my 2002

That is NORMAL -- just found out myself. ONLY- the center light and the lower (bumper) lights are your brake lights. The main lights are ONLY used for running lights.... Got to luv it!

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.
the tail lights have there own fuse and are powered through headlight switch. Do the front running lights come on? If none of them work, switch could be bad if front work and rears dont, check bulbs and power to them when lights are on

Rear top brake light bulb and sunroof


No relation whatsoever. If the brake lights work but the high one does not - you have a bulb out. Fairly easy to replace. The sunroof would be a totally separate issue. How long has it not worked? Did it stop suddenly at the same time as anything else stopped working?

Left and right rear brake lights not working. Center rear light does work? Is it the same fuse? And service manual unclear, which fuse is it? thanks Tibs


Fuse number 7 (15A, Horn Stop) in the under hood box should be your brake lights. If you are referring to your high mount brake light as the third light, I believe they work on the same fuse.
I would check the bulbs, although it may not be likely that both would go at the same time. There are three bulbs in the unit: brake/taillight, turn signal, and backup.
The units themselves come out pretty easy. Just remove the two phillip's head screws and pull the unit back to get it out. Then turn sockets 1/4 turn and out to check the bulbs. Bulbs pull straight out.
Hope this helps you.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working


check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Left and right brake light doesn't work but center lights does


check behind the brake peadle for a little button that pushes in and out when the peadle is pressed(this is your brake light switch) some cars have more than one of theese. manualy let the button out if the light works the switch is good if it does not disconect the harness from the switch and take a small piece of wire and jump the two prongs on the harness if the brake lights come on then you need a brake light switch. if this doesnt work check for power at the switch. if no power you have a bad fuse if there is power and you already jumped the wires to the switch then you have a broken wire between the switch and the tail lights.
