When you check them, with say a test light and they work. It is because you have a good ground with the test light. Check and rerun ground wires if necessary On the back of the truck, check for ground straps from the frame to the bed..

I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban v1500. All lights work except for the Brake Lights and Turn Signals. The Blinker switch on steering column is broken, other than that everything is fine.


Yes, the brake light signal on American cars is routed through the turn signal switch. A new switch should restore both your turns and your brake lights.
American cars use the same bulb filament and same wire to the rears for both brakes and turns. Press the brakes when turning and both rear brakes will light, but since one side travels through the flasher relay, that side will blink, while the other side has a steady light.

Rear brake lights not working on 1998 Chevy Lumina


Well usually when the third brake light works and the others don't, the problem is in the turn signal switch. The center brake light is separate from the other two as far as circuits go.
The thing that puzzles me is the cruise. It could be something else, because the only way a faulty brake light switch would kill the cruise control is if the switch was stuck on.
I think I would check the circuits in and out of the turn signal switch.

No brake lights i have turn signals and headlights and backing up lights but no center brake lights and no brighter left and no brighter right brake light. again all my lights work except when i hit the...


This is most likely to be your brake switch near your foot pedal then. They can come lose, or just break completely, rare, but it happens.
Get down on the floor and check up behind your brake pedal, it should look fairly obvious where it is then.
Good luck with it.

Cruise control and rear hatch doesn't work, also rear brake lights staying on when driving, would this be a stoplight switch failure?


yes. The CC uses the signal from the brake light switch to operate. Rear hatch? sounds unrelated unless you are referring to the 3rd brake light. Depending on your car there may be a rubber or plastic button the brake arm rests against when not being pressed. This may have broken or fallen off.

2001 ford f150. blinkers want work. brake lights want work. but the light at rear above back glass works when i press the brakes. help


you need first to determine the obvious as most people don't check to see if there brake lights work. make sure the bulbs are not burnt out. if you use the blinkers and the light stays on when you operate them that is usually an indication a light is burnt out.

Center brake light flashes along with right blinker only


85 fury with a center brake light? Did someone add this light and wire it to the right tail light. You need to wire it to the brake switch.

TURN SIGNAL, BRAKE & HAZARD LIGHTS


No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below:
Troubleshooting Procedure
To start troubleshooting this problem:
  • Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
  • Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
  • When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.
