Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
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.
