You need to have the brake hydraulic system checked for the calipers sticking if you have 4 wheel disc brakes as they can seize on the sliding mechanism causing the brakes not to fully release.also if the caliper pistons are sticking in the calipers this will cause the same problem.make sure you or anyone else that drives your car doesn`t drive with 2 feet as just slight pressure from resting your foot on the brake pedal can cause pressure in the system applying the brakes enough to wear them prematurely but not put the brake lights parts also will cause excessive wear.

I have no brake lights on my 2005 oldsmobile alero

Try wiggling the turn signal switch and applying the brakes.Have somebody check and see if the brake lights come on or flicker while wiggling the switch and applying the brakes. Try this after verifying the bulbs are good. If the brake lights come on after even briefly the turn signal switch needs replaced.

Brake lights don't work on 2004 Alero

Take the bulb out on the right side and test the terminals in the connector whilst someone else presses on the brakes. If you get 12 volts, then replace your bulb. If you don't get 12 volts, you will have to trace down the problem starting at the bulb. Usually a blown fuse or bad brake switch will cause the entire brake light unit to not function, so I am sure this has to be a wiring issue.

I have a 2004 alero with 3 lights on, EFT light, Sevice engine soon, and Anti-brake lights. what does this mean?

I'm not sure what the EFT light is - guessing traction control. The components making up this system are the wheel speed sensors, and the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module.

Scan the ABS codes on the car and that will help. Here are some points of failure:
1) Sometimes just having improper tire inflation can cause this issue.
2) One or more of the wheel speed sensors are inttermittant/bad - easily tested.
3) The EBCM is bad - can have it rebuilt online for $150.00.

The ABS codes will help is diagnosing this issue.

Tail/brake light bulb replacement 2004 Olds Alero

In the trunk, in the rear corners, you'll see some plastic "caps" with tabs on them, similar to wing nuts. Remove those, and the taillight comes right off the back of the car. That will allow you to replace the bulbs.
