Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.

Brake lights dont work Bulbs are good and brake light switch is good


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!

Neither brake light will come on when I get on brake.Changed the fuse and bulbs already. keyless device only work sometimes. Put new CR2016 batteries in. Please help!!!


suspect a bad brake light switch,on the brake pedal itself.the key need not be on when checking the brake light switch.but requires 2 people.one to insure the brake lights come on,one to push the brake. theres a switch on the brake pedal itself. look above the brake pedal pad that you push to apply the brakes. you will see a plunger that moves in and out,just to supply the current to the brakelights.if the plungers out of sync,it will not work. or it may only be stuck.or simply bad,if it moves and brake lights do not work. if the plunger works on visual inspection,and is plugged up,the switch is suspect to be bad. thank you,for choosing fixya.com!! SIMPLE SOLUTION,CHECK THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. IT MAY ONLY BE BLOWN. UNDER THE DASH ON DRIVERS SIDE CLOSEST TO YOUR LEFT FOOT WHEN APPLYING BRAKES. WITH FLASHLIGHT,CHECK FOR BLOWN BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. if this fails,check for blown brakelight bulbs. unlikely that both brake light bulbs blown at once! but not unusall. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on


Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...

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.

1988 ford thunderbird brake lights and turn signals not working


When this happens the problem is most likely the multi-funtion switch aka turn signal switch. Check to see if the 3rd brakelight comes on when the brake pedal is pushed. If so replace the MFS. The 3rd brakelight in late 80's fords bypasses the turnsignal switch.

Brake light for 1987 325i 4drs Inline 6


Hi,

On your brakelight concern, a few basic ideas:
  • a blown fuse indicates a short somewhere;
  • brakelights are activated by the switch coupled to the brake pedal;
  • the brakelight bulb is integrated with the rear parklights.
Based on the above, some actions that you could take/explore:
  • check the wiring of the foot/pedal switch, might be caught in between the spring coils;
  • check the bulb sockets. look/clean/remove corrosion, rust, twisted wires, frayed ends;
  • check harness going to rear.
On the ticking sound:
  • probably a relay;
  • check for loose ground or corroded/rusted ground points;
  • double check the ground connection of the stereo;
  • double check the battery's - terminal connection to engine and to chassis body;
  • check/clean relay sockets normally located with the main fuses.
  • in some worst case scenario and considering the age of the vehicle, a rehabilitation of the wiring system might be in order.
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.
