Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Brake lights do not work, all other lights work.

My brake lights on my 96 Blazer 4X are not working, but all the rest of the lights work. Fuses seem to be okay. When tested, there is power going to and out of the fuses, but no brake lights.

    The vehicle has 3 brake lights. The 2 main brake lights do not work, the third one, located in the hatch works perfectly. The emergency stop lights in the front of the car work, but those in the rear do not work. Same happens to the blinkers. I checked the bulbs and tey are ok. Can you please help me?

My fiancee' followed Ron's instruction, on where to find the brake light switch, and was finally able to locate it, get it out, and replace it with a new one. I now have brake lights. He had been looking all morning for the switch but could not find it, and he is an ace mechanic, so thanks to Ron for his expert advice. You guys are the greatest!!

Have you checked the brake light switch thats activated by the brake pedal arm?if not follow the brake pedal arm up under the dash and you will find a switch that goes on and off when you push the arm in and out.Make sure you have power in and out and the switch is correctly adjusted.

Check the ground for the rear lights. If you have a voltmeter or test light check for power at the bulb sockets. For the tail lights, turn park or headlight switch on. For the brake lights, have someone hold the brake pedal down. Do the front park lights work okay? You really need a voltmeter to do any electrical testing. And a wiring diagram so you know what and where to test. With a voltmeter for instance, you could check not only the fuses, but if the fuses have power to them. You need to know that to determine which direction to take, back towards the battery, or forward to the switches and bulbs. To see a wiring diagram of your exterior lights, go to BBB Industries. They have a huge database of free wiring diagrams for just about every vehicle from 1986 to present year.

Signal/Dashboard/Brake Lights Are Out! 2005 Toyota Corolla S

Most likely a fuse is bad, get out your owners manual and see which one powers the lights. Buy a good test light and it will help you the rest of your mechanic career. Then you can test the fuses without pulling them out to look at them, and test them electrically. first to confirm they are indeed getting power and then that they are good.

What do the relays and fuses look like under the hook of a 96 s 10 blazer. Someone said to check theses and how do you. My brake lights dont work and the 10A fuse under the dash is good and i replaced the...

Did you check or replace the brake light bulbs?
It is more common to have burnt bulbs than a bad brake light switch or blown fuse.
Do you have orange signal lights and red brake lights at the rear?
Then the signal light switch will not affect the brake lights.....but....
If they are all red and you use the same bulbs for brake and signal....the brake light wiring goes through the signal light switch and could be affected there.
First....check for power getting to the brake light switch......and leaving it with a test light.......then go to the rear....pull a light assembly and check for power getting to the power? follow the wiring back to the switch looking for a bad connection.
The fuses and relays under the hood are usually in a black plastic box labeled fuses and or relays.

My 2000 buick lasbres windows and power locks stopped working.the radio works but i have to turn it on and off . at first it stopped working for about 4 hours and then started working again,but now its...

TOOLS: Ideally you will need a 12 volt test light and a Digital Volt Ohm Meter. But if you do not have access to these tools you only be able to visually inspect the fuse for condition.

MY IDEA: (1) Open the hood and look for a fuse box with large fuses and relays in it. The fuses in this box will be physically larger than the fuses you may be used to seeing in the passenger compartment. Power door locks and windows not only require higer current flow as well as relays too. (2) Once you have located this box remove/open the cover and look for any labeling to identify fuses and relays as part of the power door lock or window systems.

CASE A: If these system fuses test okay/pass a visual inspection (not blown to open the circuit), light the test light on both legs of the fuse or when checking with a meter have minimal resistance across the fuse then you should change your focus at least temporarily to the master switch in the drivers door.
Since both the power door locks and power windows are inoperative I would start my diagnosis at the master switch assembly in the drivers side door. Somehow you need to get the master switch assembly out of the arm rest to proceed with diagnostics.

CASE B: if the system fuses didn't test okay/fail will need to get the master switch assembly out of the arm rest and remove all the connectors to remove a potential fault to cause the fuse(s) to blow open.

Before proceeding I need to know what the results are (i.e. CASE A or B). This will indicate where we need to look next to run further diagnostics.

I know I haven't mentioned the radio symptoms but my suspicion is that it may be coincidental or resolved permanently with repairs to the other two systems.

Hope this helps.

Brake lights do not work, all other lights work.

It is a common chevy problem for the circuit board that holds to bulb to fail, are your running lights and signals still working back there as well? If not then you need to replace the boards.
