There is also a wire that is connected to the brake pedal itself that can come loose as well.

Ok you checked for power on both sides of the brake light switch? and you have power on both wires with the brake pedal pressed? and no brake lights? there is a wire broke somewhere between then brake light switch and the lights.
make sure the hazard switch is turned off completely because the brake lights run through the turn signal/hazard switch.

Location of brake light switch fault on 2002 discovery freelander


The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

1988 chevy 1500 everythingworks exept brake light turn signal ok tailghts ok no brake lights


Since the turns work in the back, that means the brake bulbs are good. Brake lights and turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb.
There is a fuse for the brake lights. Then, there is a brake light switch on the brake pedal. You need a voltmeter or test light, after checking that fuse is good. Need to check if fuse has power on it. This is one of those fuses that are hot at all times-as long as battery is connected, voltage should be going through the fuse and up to the brake light switch. Check for power both places. The switch on the pedal is a simple on-off switch. When brake is depressed, the spring loaded switch is turned on-passing power on towards the brake lights.
But then the brake wire goes into the turn signal switch before going on to the brake bulbs...however, since your turns work good, I doubt if there is a problem in the turn switch. First check if the brake light switch is sending power on when switch is on.
Let me know what you find. Good luck.

Tail lights work but brake light doesn't. its the same bulb for tail and brake lights


Hi!
Maybe you have a problem with a brake switch or the bulbs. because the bulb has two heads in side one for the brakes and one for the tail lights. take the bulb out ad see if the both heads are ok and not broken, They are just tow springs. If they look ok,Then check the brake switch thats usually under brake pedal. Good luck

Any Thumbs Up would be appreciated.

Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked


Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

Rear brake lights are not working


Hi,

There are a couple of probable reasons why the brake light are not working, they are:
  • 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;
  • brake light fuse;
  • bulbs;
  • corroded bulb socket - most brake lights are integrated with the rear park lights. The bulb socket would have 2 contacts, try checking if they are clean and reaches the mate in the end of the bulb;
  • wrong installation - the bayonet socket of most park/brake lights combo are offset, there is a right and wrong way if installing it into the bulb socket;
  • loose wire - it would be required to trace the brake wire to where it joins the rear harness;
  • loose ground - same as above or a workaround is to wire an additional ground wire from the housing of the bulb socket to any screw that is connected to the body ground.
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.
