Carefully remove the two trim plugs from each tail light assembly with a small knife blade. Remove the two hex head bolts on each assembly. Insert a small paint stir stick (soft wood won't damage paint) between the fender and the tail light assembly. Gently pull the opposite (inside) side of the assembly off. The paint stick allow the assembly to pop off the ball and socket pin holding the outside part of the assembly in place. Unplug the power plug by releasing the retainer clip. Unscrew the large black plastic nuts on the back of the assembly with a very large screwdriver, if they can't be turned by hand,and remove. Replace burned out bulb/s and reassemble in reverse order. Remember the trim plugs have two prongs on them. Position them with the prongs and the direct top and bottom and press into place.

    Tried this and it didn't work. I felt that I would snap the Ball Pin so I stopped.

My brake lights will not function on my 2000 grand caravan.All of the bulbs are new my rear lights work my reverse lights work but my brake lights will not


The bulbs could still be the problem since they are double filament bulbs.If your high brake light work but not the low ones the replace the bulbs.If none in the rear work then you may need a brake light switch(on the brake pedal linkage).If this is not the case the check for power to the brake light side of the bulb and repair the broken brake light wire.

Tip

One Brake Light Not Working


Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.

Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.

1999 GMC Envoy: replaced both GE 3057 lamps in left rear light assembly. Lamps both light. However depressing brake pedal does not initiate brake light. The righ rear brake light does work. The high mount...


The high mount brake light has its own fuse, so check that first. The high mount bulb is generally a stabdard type (there may be more than one bulb) or you can replace with an LED. As for the left rear bulbs not working when depressing brake pedal, check the bulbs again for any spring that may be broken. If the bulbs are still good, make sure there is sufficient contact with the socket. If still not working, have someone check it out further.
