    My brake lights don't work and I can't find the yellow box in the trunk. Where is it ? I looked at the spring on brake pedal and I can't find anything wrong there though I have no idea what I am supposed to be looking at! Somebody save me here. I am a chick and this type of work is not my special !

    I have the same problem with 1992 Camry. Changed the light bulbs and checked the fuse box. I tried looking for the brake switch underneath the dash but an not sure what I am looking for exactly. Nothing near the pedal either. Please help me / us.

    Replaced bulbs, no help. The bulbs work in  headlight mode, but the brake lights don't come on, The center brake light works.

Well I couldn't find the yellow box in the back of the trunk drivers side. Saw some wires on the hinge located here and tried to trace them but that didn't work either. Where is the stinking thing ? And if you would pls tell me what the bulbs look like and what does the casing look like ? Is it the white looking plastic doohickies ?
This is quite an embarrassing predicament. I am sure I can do this and I bought some liquid solder so I can really muck it up when I find the yellow box. I think I'm dangerous... but I don't have the small piece of information and/or the money to preform this job. Tell me what a job like this should cost and I will take one more stab at it, and then take it to some shop to be ripped off. As I said I am a chick and in the past I have been robbed and stripped naked !

Hi,

You could likewise check the brake switch underneath the dash. It is activated when the brake pedal is pushed. It is a spring loaded switch and is normally off. If the sprin is defective/missing then the switch will not activate.

In some instances problems similar to yours involves the connector (most likely) somewhere in the trunk area or the wires themselves (least likely). Another possibility is the bulb socket which might have corrossion, but the chance of both going bad at the same time is very remote.

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.

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

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

Brake Lights all of a sudden not working on my 1995 Tahoe. Checked fuses and lights. Neither burnt out.


The turn signal switch and the hazard switch are likly places to look. To checjk the fuses is'nt to take them out and look at them but to test to see if power will go though them, I use a test light ( a tool that looks like an ice pick with a wire coming out of the handle and the handle is clear with a light bulb inside). with the clip connected to a good ground as you touch the back sides of the fuses the light will light if it only lights on one side, the fuse is blown ( does'nt matter what it looks like ) a bad fuse can look good. the turn signal switch is involved as is the Hazard switch. If you pusth the hazard switch and the lights light good then you know that the lights and the sockets are good. You also know that the wires are good . With the key on the turn signals should work front and back ( thier different cicruits) If only working in the front the turn signal switch is bad provided the hazards worked all the way around. Does the high mount stop light work? It works off of it's own circuit on the brake light switch and if no lights work your back to the fuses only after you checked to see if the high mount bulbs are good. Your car is plenty old enough to have them be burnt out. If the high mount doesn't work with the bulbs known to be good and then you check with the test light to see if the power isd getting to the brake light switch. One wire is hot with the key off and another comes hot with the key on ( the cruze control switch in the brake light).

98 town car my brake lights both turn signals work my hazards work, but my running tail lights don't work


Hello,

Inside your instrument fuse panel look for fuse #31 which powers up the light control module and the main light switch, also while there be sure and check fuses 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 to be sure they're not blown.

Good luck!

Let me know if this helps.

My break lights don't work


have you checked for blown fuse under dash in fuse panel? if so, are brake light bulbs blown ? if not, check on brake pedal for bad brake light switch, it will be above the brake pedal on the arm assembly, look for a black switch that has wires running to it, it may only need adjustment. it has a plunger type switch, when it moves the brake lights come on, when it closes the circuit, the lights go off..hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com!!

Brake lights not working but third brake light works?


Check your fuse for the brakes, if fuse is blown replace. If not fuse go buy a package of brake light bulbs at the auto store. Then replace the bulbs.

Hope this helps
