Taillights are not working. Brakes lights and turn signals fine, but no taillights. Checked the fuse and it's okay. Any ideas?

Try unplugging the connector from the brake light switch( under the dash on the brake pedal arm) Install a jumper in the plug and see if the brake lights come on. If they do, the switch is bad. The new switch must be adjusted correctly or the brake lights will stay on all the time. This circuit has power even when key switch is off.

Dodge ram 1500 wiring diagram

Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

2001 isuzu brake lights not working

Not sure what model you have but, looking at the brake pedal to see if the brake light switch is plugged in and the wires not broken is a place to start. Depending if your model has yellow turn lights in the rear is the next place to check. The car or truck is old enough for the bulbs to be burnt out and of course if you were hit of hit something with the brake lights on they tend to fail too. If thiers no yellow lights in the back you can turn on the hazard lights to test the bulbs and connections but if thier yellow your only testing the turn signal lights and you did'nt report that as an issue. The fuse can be blown but if it is theirs likly to be another problem that still nereds to be found. If the car or truck has a trailor connection this has always been a good place to look for troble. If the fuse is blown it's a good idea to watch how the new one blows just to see where the problem needs to be looked for. If it blows just plugging it in the problem is before the brake light switch or the switch it'self. if only after pressing the brake pedal then it can be the wires a badly installed bulb or light socket problem. If it does'nt blow ttill after the brake pedal is pushed then I'd remove the taillights and get the bulbs out and remove them. With the bulbs removed I'd check to see it it's still shorted. if not install them one at a time not reusing any that appear bad replace trhem with new ones.

No brake lights when i push the pedal

Its the signal light switch on the lever.
THe signal switch has all connections relating to the brake lights!
solution play around with the lever and see or get someone to see the brake lights work with the brake pedal down.
My car does the same thing! when i move the lever towards activaiting the high beams the brake lights work.
just gently push on the lever to see the lights go on.
you have to replace the switch and requires removing the steering wheel without setting off the airbag.

Taillights and signals work but no brake lights?

Check the brake light switch. It should be energized when the switch is depressed. (constant power in and power out only when pedal is pressed) Taillights and signals power through the steering column and light switch. BUT first check the fuses. I seem to remember there being a fuse for the truck brake lights and another for the trailer brake lights. Use a tester and check trailer wiring brake lights. If they work, look for the truck brake light fuse.

Brake lights don't work on 97 chevy lumina sedan

Had the same issue in the spring. Replace the turn signal switch. A general weakness in the switch in these years. Replacement solved the problem in my 97 Lumina.

Turn signal and brake light problem

Had the exact problem on my 98 ranger 2wd reg cab stepside with the 2.5l 4 banger. Anytime I pressed the brake my passenger side turn signal would light up solid on the dash and the lights outside. I pulled both rear lights and both headlights and turn signals to check for corrosion/loose wires. Nothing. I checked and cleaned all my grounds and fuses. Nothing. Not until I followed my rear taillights wire harness did I find the problem. The two taillights are connected to each other via wire harness. My truck had the harness split with an adapter for trailer brakes. This harness was the problem. It is located under the rear bumper by the spare tire. Simply disconnect two harness plugs going into each side and remove it. Then connect the two plugs to each other. Problem solved.

2001 dodge ram 1500 brake lights

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
