My brake light on my truck have been burning bulbs like crazy and now they don't work at all. Is there anything I can check to find out what's causing this to continue to do such?

    Ive removed all wires from undercarriage and checked for breaks or grounding curcuits, Removed my entire dash aswell as fuse block.

    Ive isolated the Yellow wire from the brake switch and removed the connection by splicing it, and turned on my flashers and it works fine and dandy, Once i reinstall the yellow wire activate the flashers , Wulah same problem arises.



    I am waiting for a new Brake switch for under the dash and ss if it helps will post details once work completed.

Brake lights don't work


First thing to check is the simple things. Be sure the bulbs aren't burned out, then check to be sure the fuse isn't blown. Let me know if that helps.

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

Check your bulbs first, I have lost both headlights on my ford at once on account of the bulbs burning out at the same time. Same thing probably happen, you have one filament out. The lights can work, but if the filament for brake is burnt, you don't see brake lights.

Need to change brake light bulbs on Peugeot 107 is this easy


If both are not working that is a sign that you have some other problem and not burned out filament's in the bulbs bulbs. Try turning on the four way flashers and then off again a few times do the rear lights flash? if so the bulbs are ok. If the brake light still don't work check the bulb socket with a DC volt meter while the rake lights are help on by a helper, if you have voltage then likely the bulbs are the problem. If you still think the bulbs are the problem the way to change them is outlined in the owners manual with diagram's which I do not have.

Brake lights don't work. Bulbs, fuses and brake light switch all okay. Center brake light works and the running lighs work.


Filaments on actual bulbs might be burned out, pull the socket out from the back of the tailights and do a visual check on the bulbs, replace if needed...

I have a problem with my 1978 chevy pickup tail light. It is the left tail light that doesnt work when I press and the brake and the signal. And the light bulb is good. but when i put on my parking lights...


the cheapest thing to do is change any and all bulbs in that tail light. if 1 is bad it can effect all of them. hopefully you don't have a short somewhere. but i would try the bulbs first, they're only a couple dollars and usually the problem. gl

Brake lights not working on 2003 E 350


Have you checked the fuse for the brake lights and have you checked the brake light switch.
The brake light switch is directly above your foot when it is placed on the brake pedal.
