    Hi, I was curious as to how this finally resolved as I have the same problem with the tail lights, brake lights and the shifter not working unless I press the little lever at the bottom. I replaced fuses, checked bulbs.



    p.s. mine is 93 Nissan Maxima and the one other thing is not working.....the back light on the dash board.

    Can you call me I would like to explain some things to you. Or I can call you if it's more convienent.

    253-691-6206 My name is Randy

    Disconnect the brake light switch and check for 12 volts on one of the wires if you have power use a "jumper wire from that terminal in the plug to the opposite one in the same plug and see if the brake lights are now on and if it will come out of park

    Please email me at with the results of this test and tell me if you do or do not have 12 on one wire of the brake light switch connector.

My driver side brake lights went out. I replaced the blubs and the running lights work plus the passenger brake lights work. so I am lost

Its your turn signal switch in the steering colum. just pull your steering wheel and then the switch. I didn,t want to pay $80 for a new one, so I fixed it with bondo! That was about a year ago...still working fine.

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem

The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

Brake light not work. done all checking blubs is good, replace switch, replace relay, fuse all good. turngal work hazzard light work but no brake light. i bypass on relay it work so i cant leave short...

the brake light switch powers the wire which goes to the turn signal switch. So I think if the turn signals works, then the turn signal switch is bad. Check for power at the wire going from the brake switch to the turn signal switch. . Since you didnt tell what year or model the truck is, I cant tell you what the wire color is.

Brakes lights not working

look up above your brake pedal and you should see a switch. This switch controls your brake lights and is a common cause for brake lights not to work

2002 toyota camry breaklights not working

check the brake light switch mounted to the brake pedal. You should be able to see it if you look up behind the dash from the floor.
These can go bad which is the next thing i would check after fuses, and bulbs.
Just make sure that its actually moving enough to activate if so you will have to take it off and you should be able to jump the 2 pins on the connector with a piece of wire and the brake lights would come on. If they do its the brake switch that is bad and get another from the auto parts store.
