Possible to be a fuse, but without knowing the year model and make of the vehicle it is not possible to say for sure. On some vehicles the circuit for the brake light goes through the hazard switch or the turn switch.

Why my break lights wont come on and tail lights do wats wrong

the brake switch sends power to the turn signal switch and then on to the bulbs. Brake lights are on a separate fuse. Check both areas for the problem

2004 chrysler sebring. my break lights don't come on when i hit the break pedal.

There is a brake light switch on the pedal inside the cabin of the car, if this switch is bad your lights will not work, also I'm fairly confident that the Sebring has a seperate fuse for the brake lights, check your fuse panels also

Break lights wont work changed the break booster and switch still no break lights

Your turn signal switch may be the problem. The brake light circuit runs through the turn signal switch. Do the basics and check for a blown fuse, broken light bulb or bulb holder.

Brake lights dont work or other lights are ok i change the break light switch i change all fuse but still some 10 dont work what can i do

Make sure you have the switch adjusted properly....If you remove the switch without unplugging it
the brake lights should come on....You have to have the brake light switch button placed in perfect position so when you mash pedal the switch button will release from switch causing the lights to come on.......Be sure the bulbs are not burnt out.....just for a test turn switch on and remove switch from pedal area without unplugging it to check for brake lights........If they are not on check bulbs..........

We installed a new break light sensor and now not only does the light not work the car doesn't even come out of park

I guess that you mean the break light switch. the new switch doesn't have to be good but thats not as likly as it being the wrong one. If the old one would let it out of park why were you changing it anyway as the lights work on the same circuit as the colummunlock soliniod. It's possible that you blem the stop lamp fuse or the curuize fuse or the cigar fuse. all of them have to be good for the system to work right. If it's a pickup the light sockets panel is suspect if it's a car the high mount break light bulbs are likly. Not knowing what year and model even car or truck makes the car a long one to answer. Chevrolet has been building cars and trucks since 1908 and theyve changed alot every few years and for me to answer this question for all chevys made is a very long answer.

Rear brake light are not working checked fuse under hood and passenger side dash could not find fuse by brake pedal

It could possibly be the actual switch that sits behind the break pedal. When the break pedal depresses or presses into the switch, the break lights go on or off. Not sure how much they run, but really easy to change. You could also check the switch with an ohm meter if available by making sure it breaks or runs continuity through the terminals when the switch is pressed/released. Hope this helps. Good luck!

My brake lights wont come on..ive changed the bulbs and they still dont work...i cant find the brake light FUSE... 1993 TOYOTA CAMRY

Break light fuse would be in your main fuse panel, most likely under the dash somewhere on the drivers side. A "key" of sorts may be on a sticker near the panel or molded into the plastic cover. If not a key should also be in the vehicle manual as to what fuse is what. Next thing is the break light switch attached somewhere under the dash to the break peddal might be faulty. This is most likely a plunging kind of switch that activates the break lights as the pedal is being pressed. Good luck!
