SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: Brake Light Doesn't

Yes. Look on the brake pedal lever under the dask. When the brake pedal is pressed the switch is engaged. This is easy enough to replace. If you see two switches, the other one is probably a switch to disable the cruise control.

SOURCE: replace rear window brake light bulb

I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

Rear left brake fuse


The brake lights work off of the same fuse so if 1 light is working then the fuse is good. Check the plug where the bulb goes in. Make sure you have a tight and clean connection there. Test for voltage at the plug with the bulb removed.

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Check your brake light fuse, also make sure you installed the bulb in the right way, if not in the right way will blow a fuse and will also not let you shift gear's due to blown fuse.

No brake lights changed bulbs and fuses


Does the brake light in the rear window work? If so, the brake light switch is good. Running lights all work?

Driver side brake light doesnt work but other brake light does changed bulbs still does not work


Make sure the fuses are good.There is a fuse for left and right brake lights.The fuse blocks are under the hood and there`s also one under the drivers side rear seat.If the fuses are good then remove the rear lamp assembly and check the bulb.I believe there are 2 screws and then just pull lamp assembly out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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.
