Question about Kia Rio

2 Answers

Hi we have a Kia Rio and the side brake lights have both gone out but the centre brake light still works. It isn't the fuse or the lamps as all have been changed, any ideas?

    I have the same problem.

  • Robert Hadley Jan 15, 2009

    I have the same problem right now too...it was a gradual failure though. First the right side brake light went out, then when I was changing out the bulb the left side brake light stopped working also. Now only the middle brake light will light up. I checked the fuses and they all seem to be good.

    We have a 2006 Spoartage and the left brake light went out last week. I replaced it and now both the left and right are out with only the top brake light working.

    The bulb is not burned out again as I have checked it.

    Any ideas?

Bad brake pedal switch. This assembly actually does three "jobs"; turning each left/right bulb on and then the center "eye"...accordianman

For me the solution was just changing the light bulbs apparently they both burned out around the same time. This is a first for me but what the hell. At least it wasn't an electrical problem right?

2006 brake light will not go out


Light gets power from brake light switch/.May be switch got shorted an brake light getting non-stop power causing it not to turn OFF brake light.

Get the brake light switch checked. Check volt at brake light switch.

It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its wiring short for switch.

I have no break lights or turn signals


Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

2008 kia optima break lights not working

  • Open the hood and locate the battery. Remove the cable from the negative terminal (black cable) by turning the retaining nut on the cable clamp counterclockwise with a socket wrench until the clamp is loose enough to slide off the terminal. You must disconnect the battery's negative terminal to avoid a potential electrical shock when working on any electrical component in your KIA.
  • Open the trunk and pull back the carpet near the tail light assembly.
  • Remove the three nuts holding the lamp assembly in place and pull the lamp assembly out.
  • Remove the bulb assembly by rotating the bulb counterclockwise and pulling the bulb straight out of the housing.
  • Install the new bulb. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • Reconnect the cable to the negative battery terminal.

    Brake lights not working, fuse is fine bulbs are good all else operates fine, signals, back-up lights, etc all good. 2007 Kia Rio 5 hatchback


    Check the brake switch above and behind the brake pedal. It may have slipped out of position or could be faulty. It can be tested with a meter.

    My brake lights arent working!


    Normally you'll find a brake switch at arm of brake pedal, up under dash. Switch should have 12v going in one side, when pedal not pushed, and both sides when pedal is pushed.
