You have 3 things to check. First the bulbs and that is easy. You will either unscrew the
lens cover and get access to the bulb. The other access is in the trunk. You may need to move
the liner to get to a twist-loose type bulb holder. Replace one bulb and hit the brakes. Does it light up?
If so, replace others not working. If the bulb doesnt light then check your fuses. Your fusebox cover
should have a list of what the fuses protect. Look for taillights or brake lights. If those dont get it fixed
you may have a bad brake light switch that is on the brake pedal. Get upside down under the dash and locate the switch mounted above the pedal. These are farely easy to remove and should have a connector
that you pinch to release the switch from the wiring harness. Call around for the best price/availablity and swap a new one in.

I going to assume you have checked your bulbs and fuses, without any more info than you have given, I'm going for the obvious, check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, see if it has just came loose or gone bad.

Brake lights and turn signal stop working at the same time


If brake lights not working then its quite possible that the problem is .either the brake light fuse or the brake light switch.The brake light switch is causing the turn signal light to stop functioning.Check out both the brake light fuse and the brake light switch. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Does the 3rd brake lamp illuminate? If so then your problem is multifunction switch.If it doesn't do the following checks.
Check for power to and thru the brake lamp switch itself.If you do not have power to the switch check fuse no. 10(20 amp) in the interior fuse panel.If you have power to the switch then depress brake pedal and make sure you have power thru the switch.If this is ok the check Fuse 22(20amp) with brake applied..

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.
