Have you check the brake switch on the peddle arm?There is a switch at the bootom of the dash with a button,when you push the brake it allows the button stem to extend out witch activates the brake lights.

SOURCE: Brake light out on driver

yes they most certainly do go through the turn signal switch and from what you are saying that would be the first piece that i would check. you can find the harness for it on the left side of the steering columm it is a long(about 4")black plug you could try a new one from an auto parts store they run about $20-$30 just unplug the old one and plug inthe new one however if it is this piece that has gone bad i do not recommend for you to try to replace it yourself as it is rather involved and it does require some specialty tools i hope this was helpful

Replace my brake switch on my 2000 Dodge ram pick up and my brake lights still don't work


Brake switch must be adjusted such that it is depressed with pedal up and released as soon as pedal is slightly depressed.

Sounds like your multifunction control switch needs replaced. Its location is on your steering colum.

No brake lights


Amen to that! Find a good independent mechanic or garage and try to keep them. Both the turn signals and the brake lights are fused circuits, so check the fuses for both at the fuse panel, probably under driver's dash. There is also a brake light switch at top of brake pedal-if you have a test light, you could check for power at the switch, and for power leaving the switch when pedal is pushed down. From there, the brake light signal travels to the rear brake lights, lighting the bulbs, and then to a ground source. Do you see any hanging wires at the rear of truck? Anything look amiss with the wires going to the light fixtures? If any wires got broken, likely at the rear of truck. Are the tail lights good? If they are good, I think the brakes and turns would share the same ground with the park lights, but if all are out, it could be a ground problem for the rear lights. All of these wires going to rear would be in a single harness.
You could have a bad turn signal switch, since the brake light circuit is routed through the turn signal switch.
If you could, have a mechanic or someone check the turn switch and brake lights.
Good luck.

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

I have 1999 Blazer with brake light out on driver side only. All other lights work. Replaced bulbs but nothing changed. Swapped the working lights from the other (right side) with the driver side but...


THE BRAKE LIGHTS DO GO THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. TO TEST, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER AROUND THE THE COLUMN, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH MUST BE IN THE OFF POSITION. YOU WILL NEED TO EXPOSE THE WIRES UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. DO NOT DISTURB THE WIRES IN THE YELLOW JACKET. THEY ARE AIRBAG WIRES. YELLOW PLUGS YELLOW JACKETED WIRES ARE AIRBAG.THE WIRE IN QUESTION HERE IS YELLOW BUT IT IS NOT IN A YELLOW JACKET, [ SLEEVE ]. NOW, PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. THE YELLOW WIRE IS LEFT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE, DARK GREEN IS RIGHT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE. BRAKE PEDAL DEPRESSED, IF BOTH OF THOSE WIRES HAVE POWER, ALL OF THAT IS OK. IF THE YELLOW WIRE HAS NO POWER TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD

Running lights work but no blinkers or brake lights. Changed fuses and bulbs no luck


I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.

If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.

If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.

what you have is an improper bulb or bulbs. A local Wal-mart has a directory for selecting the right type of bulb or bulbs for your car
