    own 2003 grand prix no brake lights all other lights work

  • Anonymous Nov 23, 2008

    Same problem here on 98 monte carlo. I was told that it was the signal switch. Dust builds up in switch and in the hole for the hazards. I was told to spray wd40 in both holes and press hazard switch several times. I did this and jiggled the wires a bit in the hole that the signal switch comes out of. So far, all three brake lights work again...if it happens again, I was told to replace the signal switch

I have the exact same problem on a 2003 Gran Prix GT. All lights including Stop Light works. Brake lights do not. Have you found a solution.

Tail lights not working but the brake and turn signal works


no year, ? check the haz fuse. at left knee.? a wild guess. no year.
parking lights, the work on the front and rear. not just tail.
the parking lights and brake and turn all are controlled by the hazard module. and on jeeps , turns and brakes are a shared resource (blubs)
major warngler mile stones, all vastly different. are and i quote.

98 chevy lumina Rear window break light works, but rear break lights don't, also right turn don't work?


I can almost 100% guaranty the turn signal switch is the problem. Power for the brake lights starts at the brake switch. power then splits from there and the third brake light gets power directly from the brake switch. Since the turn signal and the brake lights are on the same bulb power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. the switch depending on what position it is in will allow brake power or turn signal power to there respective left or right brake/turn bulbs.

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal and wiggle the turn signal and or play with the hazard switch the brake lights will almost always intermittently start to work. this will confirm a bad turn signal switch which is pretty common on GM vehicle with this style setup.

Window break light good but actual break lights not working


sounds like you have a bad turn signal switch.

If the third brake light is working than we know the fuse is good and the switch is good. The third brake light bypasses the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals are working than we also know that the wiring from the switch to the rear bulbs is also good. The brake lights and the turn signals are on the same bulb so the turn signal switch is what determines if the bulb gets power from the brake light switch or from the turn signal flasher. If the switch is bad usually the first thing that stops working is the brake lights.

Typically you can wiggle, jiggle, pull, push on the switch lever with you foot on the brake and get the brake lights to work. Sometimes turning the four way on and off several times will also get the brake lights to work. If this is the case than a new turn signal switch will solve you problem.

If you have any questions let me know!

1998 chevy lumina: rear window brake light not working, left brake light not working, rear left turn signal not working


See if bulbs have burnt out in the left brake light and rear turn signal (one bulb if combined) and also rear center high mount brake light.

If the left turn signal has a slower speed than the right turn signal, this is a symptom of a bulb or bulbs burnt out.

Usually, the wiring is not a problem, but I would not rule wiring (or sockets) as a problem out.

Good luck on this repair.

I replaced light bulb and brake switch is there anything else that needs to be rp;acedto make brake light work


If you have already check fuses, and brake light's still don't work, it's going to be your turn signal switch, the brake light circit runs thought the brake light switch, if your car has a middle top brake light in back of rear window, most of the time that one will still work, and the turn signal will also work, but not the rear ones brake light's, when turn signal switch is bad, hope this was very helpful.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
