Turn Signals and Highbeams don't work

The rear left brake light went out and the message center said it needed to be replaced. I replaced the bulb which worked fine, then immediately, I had no highbeams or turnsignals which are both controlled by the lever on the steering column. I have checked the fuses in the passenger area of the car and they are fine. Is there a repair I can do myself? Thanks

    I have the same problem. No turn signals, high beams don't work, none of the controls on steering wheel work (cruise and radio controls), can't change the messages in computer display on dash.

I took it to a shop, the only one I trust 35 miles away. My car had a bad fuse and some dirt in the fuse box. They cleaned it off, replaced the fuse and that fixed it for good. $45 charged.

I just had this happen to me. The computer flashed "ABS system failure" and my steering wheel controls went out, and the wipers, and turn signals/high beams. The really weird thing is that some of the dash went out (i.e. the temperature went out, but the clock didn't).

I figured this was a computer problem, so I just pulled the fuses (the ones under the hood) and put them back in. The computer still flashes "ABS System Failure" but the car runs perfect.

Why doesn't passenger side brake light work?


Either your bulb is out or there is a bad connection somewhere. Usually in the socket. Clean up the connections if needed.

Im replacing a tail light circuit board on both rear lights, is their any special way to do this


just check accurately bulbs if you mixed it could happen like that, some cars for the brake lights use two contact bulbs some of them single contact, two contact bulbs can give two signals which one is used for brake ligths and another for taillight, so check the bulbs carefully

1998 chevy lumina: rear window brake light not working, left brake light not working, rear left turn signal not working


See if bulbs have burnt out in the left brake light and rear turn signal (one bulb if combined) and also rear center high mount brake light.

If the left turn signal has a slower speed than the right turn signal, this is a symptom of a bulb or bulbs burnt out.

Usually, the wiring is not a problem, but I would not rule wiring (or sockets) as a problem out.

Good luck on this repair.

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.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites


Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.

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
