Thanks for the post...I did eventually end up taking my van to an ignition shop only to discover the wire harness'es leading to the back tail lights had completely rusted out, so I had to have them change both sides...........$400 bucks later, no issues.

Often times the light socket assembly will become overheated in the Montana, (& Chevrolet Venture vans) and this will cause a bad contact between the light bulb and the socket. Sometimes it will also melt the plastic of the light assembly. If this happens, replace the entire assembly.

If it is not melted, sometimes just taking a screwdriver and pushing the light assembly contacts closer together will fix it - although in my experience you usually will end up replacing the light assembly after a little while (just putting off the unavoidable).

Many salvage yards should have this part if you want to save a few bucks.

Reverse light work but brake light and rear turn signal doesnt


If your brake lights and turn signals are out, you most likely have a blown fuse, burnt bulb, or a problem in the steering column.----------------------------------------------------------------------

1995 saab 900 convertible turn signals and brake lights not working


Check your fuses, even fuses not associated with lighting. If all ok it is probably the muti-funtion switch on the steering column, It is the switch that your turn signal lever connects to.

I have a 1989 Buick Park avenue. A month ago all of the back lights stopped working. Tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights.


Check your fuses underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the plastic cover over and there will be a diagram showing the fuse that controls the taillights/stoplamp. Pull the fuse out and replace it with the same number fuse and your taillights and brake lights will work again. If the fuses are ok, pull each taillight bulb out and replace it with a new bulb. Sometimes when one light bulb fails, all of them will fail.

Brake light wont light up when brake pedal is pressed


Sounds like a brake lamp switch or fuse. Check all fuses electrically, with a test probe you can purchase from any auto parts store. Go through each fuse with the probe touching the end or tip of the fuse after clipping the lead on the probe to a good ground. If the probe lights up at both ends of the fuse, the fuse is sound, if it only lights up at one end then replace that fuse and if the probe does not light up at all, that fuse is not active so turn on the ignition but dont start the motor. The brake lamp switch is attached to the brake pedal. It may have a single wire or several. All the switch does is connect the brake lamp circuit to an active supply rail so, The switch should have one active wire and the other wire should become active when the pedal is pressed. If it does not, replace the switch. If it does, then you may have two blown bulbs in the rear lamps or a damaged wiring harness to the rear lamps and you should seek the advice of a qualified person. Start with the fuses, then the switch, then the bulbs..and remember, you may have more then one fuse panel in the vehicle so check under the hood too..

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
