If the fuses and bulbs are good, check the brake light switch, generally this is located in back side of the brake pedal.

Hope helps.

    We dont know excatly the year and model, but its possible that the fuses about brake light isn't the same for the third light (some model have it) . Check the fuse panel and PDB (Power Distribution Box) to confirm this comment.

    According with the comments and the owners manual, has independent fuses for stop/brake light and high stop light.

    Instrument Panel Fuse Block
    The fuse block access door is on the driver's side edge of the instrument panel. Pull off the cover to access the fuse block; pay attention at names/tag and descriptions...






    Good luck.

Replace brake light switch. It's mounted just above brake pedal under dash. Small switch w/a couple of wires coming from it. Easy fix.

    Does your car/truck have trailer wiring? I'd check that for corrosion or chaffing - it could be shorted out especially where it connects to rear lights.

    you're going to need to take a test light to wiring. I'm still suspecting brake light switch.

SOURCE: no brake lights

Took my Trailblazer to dealership. They replaced both rear tail light socket boards (these are plastic parts that house all of the rear lamps/bulbs and attach to tail light housing) They advised the sockets in the boards have a tendency to go bad. Everything works just fine. Cost of each part was approximately $29.00. Easy to replace yourself and save the labor.

SOURCE: DRL. not working

take a look at your daytime running lamp module. Often located on driver side (left side) in the bumper, or somewhere near the driver side headlamp.

should be a little black box like thing with a connector with 3 or 4 wires going to it.

Some GM cars have the DRL module hidden deep inside the dash (escalade for example is like that)

Goodluck, I hope this helps

inspect all of the sockets that the bulbs plug into. you may have a short in some of them. they can get hot and melt the plastic sockets. causing the bulbs not to work. or try replacing the wiring harness for all the rear lights. i found one in the junkyard for my cougar. and it works fine now, good luck
