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.

Dear Customer,

IT 's a major problem with GMC models,i don't know why company not trying to fixe up this problem,but anyway you have to rearrange your sensors with reconnecting & cleaning you all wiring,

SOURCE: right rear brakelight wont copme on

the bulb will need to be replaced. It would be best if both are about the same age. If bulb is new, then the brake switch is faulty.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Subaru Outback wagon, LL Bean

Owners manuel chapter 11 & 12 should show you the fuse box placement and layout..there are two fuse boxes, inside behind the coin holder to the left of the steering wheel, slide out the holder..I believe #5 on the fuse box is the fuse for tail/brake lights. Also under the hood in the engine compartment on drivers side there is the main fuse box.

Rear light and brakelight don't work when headlights are turned on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee


My first guess would be a ground problem.
The headlights and tail lights are controlled by the same headlight switch, but the brake lights are on a totally different circuit.
You may have to get a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams needed to troubleshoot the circuits if the ground connections are ok.
The lights involve the body computer and other components.

When I turn on the headlights, the brakelights won't work including the turn signals. when the headlights are off, the brakelights and turnsignals work. what could the problem be?


My first thought would be a bad ground connection in the harness for the rear lights.
You might want to take a test light and check the contacts in one of the sockets.

Volvo 850 - Headlights/Brakelights


Hi Metzgerism!

No tools are needed to do such replacements, as both head- and brake-lights are accessible by simply removing panels/caps that cover them. For the headights there are caps that can be twisted and removed, while for the brakelights you need to carefully pry open a panel on the rear post.

Good luck!
