Very common problem. The ground wires in the tail lamp assemblies like to come loose and burn the tail light housing, causing ground problems that can exhibit the symptoms you are describing. I have had real good luck fixing this with some very small diameter bolts and nuts (I usually use a #6 machine screw) from the local hardware store. Find the point where the ground wire has melted the plastic housing. (It will be at the base of one or more of the light bulbs) Take a drill and drill a hole the size of your bolts all the way through the tail lamp housing. Re-attach the ground wire with the bolt and put the nut on the outside of the housing. Check ALL the ground connections on the tail lamp assemblies and repeat as necessary. This should alleviate the problem.

NOTE: The machine screws need to be pretty long (about 1-1/2 Inches) to get all the way through the hosing for some places. Other places, they do not need to be that long. If you get several long bolts they can be used for either. You can cut the ends off after installing them if they are too long to allow the trunk lining to be re-installed properly Also, it is best to use self-locking huts so they will stay tight.

My signal light on my 1997 VW Cabrio will not work when brake pedal is pressed but when the brake light is not pressed signal light will work. What could the problem be.


sound like problem poor ground wire since brake lights and turn signal lights use same ground wire which is the brown wire.

My brake lights dont work but the tail lights come on when I turn on the headlights.


Check fuses first. Should be a fuse labeled 'Stop' or 'Brake'.

If fuses are good, climb under the dash and look at the brake switch, it's high up on the brake lever. Make sure it is operated by pressing in the brake pedal.

1997 Chevy Lumina REAR BRAKE LIGHTS DONT WORK


This will either be a fuse or the brake light switch which is on the pedal it's self. More likely the switch as these are fickle at best.

I have a 1995 honda accord and the break lights will not go off i put a new break switch on the car and it didnt work i also checked all the fuses and dont know what it could be


it could be a turn signal relay that is stuck. do your turn signals work, I know that sounds weird but for american cars the turn signal interrupts the brake light so if ur turn signals are not working properly it might be, also there is probably a brake/hazard relay

REAR TURN SIGNALS WORK BUT MY BRAKE LIGHTS DONT


Replace the turn signal switch. If you want to prove this have someone stand behind the car with your foot on the brake. Then wiggle the turn signal lever. The brake lights should blink. This is a real common problem with W body. I have replaced two on my cutlass plus tons more at my shop.
