Hi,

Most brake light problems could be traced to:

  • defective bulbs (rarely both simultaneously);
  • brake/stop light switch (often). Normally at the upper end of the brake pedal, spring loaded, normally off. Might be misaligned, wires disconnected. try shorting the two wires and see if the brake lights come one;
  • loose connector in rear wiring harness or a problem in the brake wire (seldom);
  • loose ground (depends on the age of the car and weather condition). The brake light is often coupled to the parklight. If the parklight is dim or none at all, then it is a missing ground. A temporary workaround is to install an addon ground wire from the body of the bulb socket to any of the screws to the car body.
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.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

Brake light fuse keeps blowing Noticed our brake ligths were not working...checked the fuses under the dash and they were fine...checked under the hood and found one blown...replaced it and the brake...


Take a look at the wiring to the brake lights. It is quite possible that over the years one of the wires has rubbed against another enough to short out, causing the blown fuses.

Brake lights quit working.


if all fuses and bulbs are ok get to the brake switch and see ifits stiff or stuck, if it just has two wires on it you could join themtogether to see if the brake lights come on though obviuosly dont leave them joined.Good luck davelee

Brake lights on working


It could be a fuse. There are quite a few vehicles that have two different filiments in one bulb. One for the brakes and the second for the night lights and turn signals. Always start with the easiest fix first and then proceed to the more complicated items.

Horn and blinkers quit working


Consult you owners manual or a repair manual to be certain of which fuse. Or you can always just pull the fuses one at a time until you find the one that is blown (upon visual inpection the metal inside the fuse will no longer be intact). You can also take a test light to check for operation. I prefer one of the first two methods. Hope this helps.
