All three light don't work or just the lower ones? Have you checked for power at the switch on the pedal with a test light?

My 2001 ford windstars brake lights won't work. I


There is a brake light switch operated via the brake pedal. Once the switch wears out there is nothing to activate the brake lights. You will have to have the brake light switch replaced if a check of the vehicles wiring for the lighting is shown to be all in order.

I have 2004 Chevy Malibu classic, it acts like it wanna crank but won't. it will turn over but won't stay cranked up.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

My 2004 Chevy malibu brake lights only come on if at complete stop


Your brake pedal has a switch mounted in conjunction with it. It's located above the pedal, under the dash on a bracket. The switch has a threaded collar on it and can be adjusted by loosing the 2 lock nuts.
The switch is deactivated when plunger is depressed ( opposite from a traditional switch)
When you step on the brake pedal the plunger is released (rasied) and the circuit is energized.
If your switch is out of adjustment the plunger will not fully rise during light braking, causing the brake light failure.

How do I replace the brake light switch in a 04 chevy malibu classic?


There is either a clip or a nut holding it to the bracing under the dash against the upper part of the brake pedal. Unplug the connector and swap out the switch. Its relatively easy.
