1 Answer

I had to replace the multi function switch which is the blinker switch on the stearing column. This switch controls the rear brake lights. Had to replace this switch 2 times.

About $250.00 - $300.00 from a US dealer.

Good luck

When I step on the brake the cruise control will not disengage


There are 2 switches at the brake pedal. 1 is the brakelight switch & the other is the cruise disengage switch. Possibly 2 faulty switches but you should diagnose first. Check brake light fuse, then disconect brakelight switch, bridge plug brakelight switch if lights come on = faulty switch, check globes

I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder. Tonight I went out to a movie and upon exiting my vehicle noticed my brake lights were on. I opened my door and pulled back on the brake pedal, for a second they turned off...


Climb under the dash and look on the back of the brake pedal, brakelight switch will be on the back of the brake pedal arm halfway up the arm.

Look around in the floorboard and look for some fragments of rubber. If you see some fragments of rubber then the little piece of rubber that is attached to the back of the brake arm has probably fallen off. If the rubber piece breaks and falls off then the brakelight switch will stay on because it will be touching bare metal and grounding the switch making it stay on all the time.

And that seems to make sense because when you pulled back on the pedal the brakelights went
off. Because you pulled the pedal back until it was not making contact with the switch anymore.

And the tach problem is unrelated. And im not sure about whats wrong with the tachometer. But I would suspect the vehicle speed sensor is faulty.

My brakelights are both not working after changing the bulbs, changing brake pedal sensor, and checking all fuses. The running lights, parking lights, turn signals, hazard lights all work. Please give me...


Probably the blinker switch ..The brake light circuit runs through the blinker switch..Let somebody look and while you have the brakes applied move the switch around and see if the lights come on

The two back brake lights went out at the same time but the brake light on top of the rear window still works, would the problem be the bulbs or a fuse? 2005 Jeep Liberty


Both of my brakelights have gone out on my 2005 jeep liberty. The problem is the brakelight socket. I bought replacement socket from the dealership for about $8 each. They are wireless and easy to replace. They sit on a circuit monted to the back of the tailight. The dealership will need your vin # as there are different types of sockets for the liberty.

I have a 1995 monte carlo and the brakelights wont work but the brakelight in the back glass works we changed the brake light switch and that didn't work


Have you checked to see if the ground wire from the brake light harness in the trunk came off, broke or loosened up? The third brake light has it's own ground wire. That's why it still works. Have you checked the fuse? Just throwing some suggestions out there. Best wishes to ya.

Rear brakelights don't work but center brakelight does


Hi,

Pls check:
  • the brake bulbs;
  • the bulb socket and the terminals/contacts;
  • the grounding of the brake lights. A workaround is to simply hardwire another grounding wire from the body of the brake bulb socket to the body of the vehicle.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
