Did you test the brake light switch?
Towards the top of the brake pedel there sould be a switch with a contact point against the pedle with 2 wires going to it. Do a jump across the wires and see it the brake lights come on. If they do, replace the switch. Can be found at most local parts stores.

Where is the brake light fuse ?


there is a FUSE BOX in every car. Usually it is in the drivers cabin, at his feet, left side on the floor. It's covered but if you search you will find it. If you remove the cover, behind it has a map of the fuses.
In a box it must have Break L(10A) or something for Brake lights, or Rear Lights.

All the lights stopping at the same time is not likely a fuse, it would be the brake light switch, the brake light switch is over the brake pedal near top of brake pedal arm under the dash. To test take a 12 volt test light ($5.00 at any auto parts store) and see if both side of the switch light the test light when the brake pedal is pushed, one side is hot with 12 volts without pushing the brake pedal down. The fuse location is in the owners manual but I am 99% sure that isn't the problem.

My brake lights dont work and i am trying to find the fuse box


The fuse block that contains the brake light relay is under the left side of the rear seat.There is also
a fuse block under the right side of the rear seat. Another behind the dash under the steering column. And one more under the hood right front corner of the engine compartment. If the relay is
good, check the brake light switch for constant 12v in and 12v out when peddle is pushed.
The brake light switch is under the dash at the top of the brake peddle. Hope this helps.

Brake lights not coming on when brake is applied.


Check all the brake bulbs first. If that is not the problem check the fuse for the lights. If that does not solve the problem then you will need to replace the brake light switch that is mounted under the driver dash that will be near the brake up toward the top.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work


ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
