Pull the light bulbs and test the bulb sockets, use a 12 volt test light probe, kinda looks like an ice pick or awl, with the clip lead of the test light at a good ground, probe the contacts to the bulb with the lights on, if the test light glows then there is 12 volts to the socket, if not probe the wire to the socket for power, if it is ok then replace the bulb socket, the dealer can supply this part. 1st though make sure the bulb is good, swap out a working bulb to the non working side,

It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

The brake lights do not want to work. i have changed the brake switch under the dash and the bulbs on the tail lights.still nothing. i also, changed fuses.


does the high mounted brake light work? the brake switch has 2 contacts one for the high mount (LT BLUE/BLACK) and one for the tail brake lights. The tail/brake light wire is LIGHT BLUE. the main connector between the brake light switch and the tail lights is C208 which is located behind the rear seat, left side. So if there is power coming out of the brake switch OK and no power at the tail lights, check that connector. Hope this helps.

Tail light out replaced both brake & tail lite bulbs nothing


It sounds like your brake light switch is out.  It's located on the brake pedal and is relatively easy and cheap to replace.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work


ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
