Check the bulbs if you havn't already. they're probably both blown. if not then check for power getting to them and i think if the middle one's working then the fuse should be right but there's no harm in checking it when it's so easy to do and just to make sure.

Rear brale lights not functional. center brake lght functional


Ok, trailer lights are basically separate circuits from the regular stop lights and same with the center brake light.

There is a brake light fuse located in the fusebox next to the battery in the engine compartment. Use a 12v test light to see if it becomes hot both sides of the fuse, when the brake is depressed.

12v Test lights can be bought at a auto parts store for less than $15. Do not get a "continuity light" as these are different. A test light, lights when you touch a terminal and voltage is present using the alligator clip attached to a good ground

Notice that the center stop light does not go through this fuse in the diagram.

I have included a wiring diagram for your vehicle.

If you find the brake light fuse blown, and it repeatedly blows, you have a short to ground from the fuse to the brake lights somewhere. First step is to check the brake lights for a short. and work your way back to the fuse.

How can I test the multifunction switch?


Its possible both brake bulbs are burnt out.
Rare, but a wiring issue to both rears.
try the hazards. if the hazards are same as brake lights you are in luck to test alot. if the brake lamps light up with hazards then you know your multi function switchis bad.

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand Prix GT, I have a problem which GM is aware of. No brake light, third light works in rear window. Bulbs are ok, Fuses are ok. Help


If your third brake light is working then the fuse, and brake switch are ok (it powers up all brake lights). The most likely cause is the column mounted multi-function switch, it consists of the turn signal, hazard and brake light controls, on the right side of steering wheel. You can check at the base of the column. There is a large black three-piece connector there that all the ignition, starter, lights, horn, cruise control and wipers all go thru. With the brake pedal depressed there should be power on the white wire (its on one of the end connectors terminal 1, very first wire, and should have pink wire directly beside it). If power is good, then check for power on the opposite side connector dark green wire terminal 6, and yellow wire terminal 7 (there are near the center directly beside each other). If no power on either (green or yellow) then the multi-function switch is at fault. If power is present on both, then the rear signals must also be out, and you'll have an open connector going to the rear lights.

In my rear tailights, the breaklight component is not functioning. i replaced them with brand new lights. the center breaklight located in the back window is still working. Cant figure out why they wont...


Have had this problem many time's here at my shop, if center brake light come's on which you said it does, fuse and relay are good, the problem is your turn signal switch cause the brake light circuit goes through the switch, the switch is bad even though the turn signal's still work's, good luck, hope this was evrey helpful.

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.
