Hi, the likely problem in this case is the turn signal switch. the brake lights use the same bulb filaments as the turn signals,and the brake signal goes to the turn switch. The signal is supposed to pass thru the switch when the signals are off. Replacing the switch requires special tools, including a steering wheel puller and a lock plate spring compressor. If you can borrow these tool, I could walk you thru the procedure.
replace brake switch. Located on brake pedal, just above pedal on steel shaft. Crouch beneath dash and look up, you will see it. No tools required, just turn counter-clockwise to remove and unplug wire
pump brakes a dozen times to deplete abs system pressure, before starting, remove fluid from reservoir with a squeeze bulb. remove pads. push pistons back slowly with special tool as required for your car available at parts store ( some can be pushed back using old pad and c clamp) some require small tool to fit in groves in pad (mostly rears) and use of a ratchet . install new pads , add fluid and push pedal slowly down a couple of times till u feel pressure , thats it , check fluid , done, and of course while your there inspect wheel or hub bearings, brake hoses, rotors etc... i replace hoses and rotors on 2cd time around on my cars , have fun , be safe ,use stands,safety glasses , dust mask and gloves.
If the 3rd brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the 3rd brake light doesn't work, then it needs further investigation. The turn signal switch is in the steering column, the air bag must be removed and steering wheel must be pulled. Special tools are required. The airbag can cause serious injury.
If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!
you have to pull the wheel, lock plate which will require a loner tool then it is all a matter of some screws and wires be careful when removing and re-feeding i would recommend a shop do this if you've never done this before
First check all the fuses and make sure that they are good. The brake light wiring goes from the switch, through the turn signal switch, then to the brake lights. This is done so that when the turn signal is on and the brake light is on at the same time, the bulb will stay on steady on one side (away from the side you are signaling to) and the other side will flash. If all the fuses are good, you have a bad turn signal switch. This requires a special tool (available at most parts stores or from the local Snap On man) to access the switch AFTER you remove the steering wheel. Charlie
