Well, either it comes on or it does not come on, you say it comes on then you say it does not come on, which is it. If the brake light does not come on at all check the bulb first.

SOURCE: Brake light comes on

Check the brake lever if the Brake light button in the lever is broken or dirty If so clean or replace
But check the brake cable and you will find a box which lights up brake light when pressing brake pedal, you will find an adjuster near it Turn it as cable may have snagged, Un-tighten till light turns off, Then Try brake again Will have solved the problem.

Why does brake assembly fail when I press pedal?

Check for loose contacts or wiring that is causing a short circuit near the brake pedal, or at the rear light.

"B" lights? You mean brake lights? Could be the brake light switch. I'd start there. It's fairly easy to replace. To check the brake switch, remove it, and see if the piece that pushes in is stuck be gently pressing on it and if it doesn't press in, gently pull on it to see if comes out. If it doesn't not freely move, that is probably your issue. The brake pedal assembly presses it in when you step on it. For a 2004 Forenza, the part # is 37740-85Z22. If you have a 2005 - 2008 Forenza, the part # is 37740-86Z21. Both are under $20.

My brake lights are not working. Bulbs look good, and it doesn't seem right that they would both fail. Fuse is good, and I checked voltage at the fuse box and get about 9.3 volts DC when I press down...

When the brake light is illuminated on the dash, it may not be because the hand brake is engaged. It can also mean that your breaking system is in distress. it is possible that you have a short somewhere between the fuse panel & light assembly or it is possible that the sensor for your rear brakes has malfunctioned. I apologize that I am not as knowledgeable on Nissan products, however I had a similar situation with a Dodge Durango, only to discover that the rear brakes were not functioning. I hope this helps =)

My 1997 blazer all three brake lights wont work ,checked the fuses all good .parking lights and turn singnals work fine .when i push the brake pedal you hear a noise comeing down from the pedal. please...

There is a switch on the back side of the brake pedal that turns on the brake lights (it looks like a button) when you press the pedal, I would start by finding that switch, pressing it by hand and seeing if anything happens. If that doesnt work then the switch probably needs to be replaced.

If you have a multimeter you can remove the switch and test it to see if its working.

With the switch not pressed, check the resistance between the two leads, it should read infinity.

When you press the switch the resistance should drop to zero.

Anything else suggests a faulty switch, which you should be able to get at your local auto parts store.

2001 jeep grand cherokee limited brake lights wont work. Replaced fuse and bulb. What is the problem?

Hi, the problem you are having is going to be one of 2 things now the most likely cause is going to be the brake light switch, to locate this you need to get on your hands and knees and have a really close up look of the brake pedal, then if you follow the brake pedal to where it goes through the bulk head into the engine you should then see the switch its located at the back of the brake pedal at the top, now you can take the switch off and press the button with your finger to test the brake lights if they work fit the switch and try and move it so the switch is pressed with the brake pedal you can sometimes pack the brake pedal out with tape at the part that presses the brake light switch. if the switch dont work when you press it by hand then the switch needs replacing.

the second problem you could have is if water or damp has got into the back lights you can sometimes find that the circuit board corrodes that the bulbs fit into so all you need to do is remove the back lights and remove any corrosion and this should then get the lights working

Have a 1995 jeep cherokee that both brake lights went out. all other lights working, signals, reverse, but not brake lights. fuse? have no owners manual. also a right hand drive

Most likely the fuse, if the fuse is good, then check the brake light switch, that is under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal.
Press on the brake pedal with your hand and see if the button is popping out, if not, tap on it and see if it pops out, if not, replace it.

My peugeot 206 all 3 of my back brake lights are not working

hi the first thing you need to check is the fuse in the fuse box if this is ok then the chances are the brake light switch needs replacing or it may have come loos what you need to do is get down on your knees so you can get a close look at the brake pedal then if you follow the brake pedal all the way to the top just before it goes through the bulk head into the engine you will then see a switch attatched to the very top of the brake pedal it will have 2 or 3 wires coming from it so check if this is fitted correctly also you could remove it and press the switch by hand and then see if the brake lights work that way.

If they do then try fitting it again and you may be able to adjust it slightly so check this if on the other hand it still dont work then you need to get it replaced.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Brake Lights Not Working

Check the switch that comes into contact with the brake pedal arm. Run your hand up from the pedal itself to the first thing you feel-it's most likely the switch. With the car running-in park- press the button on the switch that touches the arm the pedal is attached to. If the lights come on-then adjust the switch ( if I remember right this is done by turning the nut that holds the switch). if they don't come on-replce the switch
