SOURCE: Rear brake light will not come on when rear brake is applied

If your brake lights are not coming when pressing the foot brake this means that there is something wrong with the switch..Have a closer look near the brake lever and you will see a spring attached to it which in turn is connected to the brake switch..Try to pull it down and if you see your brake lights working then you only need to adjust the spring setting..Else try to make a manual close connection and if it goes on then replace the switch..

SOURCE: My 2003 750 shadow spirit tail light/brake light is always on

Ensure the bulb is correctly fitted!!

You must have a foot hand brake switch mal-adjusted / faulty. back them both off (If possible) and it should extinguish.

Does it still work with headlamps off?? If so then one of the switches are faulty / need adjusting.

SOURCE: tail gate light constanly on

Recheck the fuse or just replace it if this circute is fused,
I have run across fuses that have had a hairline break and look ok.
Also check your wiring connectors for corrosion.

I have a 94 Chevy C1500 and the right side brake light and blinker are not working. The tail light and reverse light work though, and the right front blinker works but it blinks twice as fast as it...


It could be a bad multifunction (turn signal) switch. The way that switch works, it is possible that it can turn on the front blinker and not the rear one. It also cancels the brake circuit so the turn signal can work with the brake pedal depressed.

However, a more likely cause would be a break in the YELLOW/BROWN wire at the rear of the truck. It is common for the connector to get corroded at the left rear frame area where the bed harness connects to the vehicle harness. If you have trailer connections spliced into the wiring harness, these connections are also prime candidates for corrosion. I would look there first. Inspect these harnesses thoroughly all the way up and into the tail light assembly.

If the wires under the back of the truck look good, then I would check for power coming out of the turn signal switch. The wire at the turn signal switch is plain YELLOW (with no brown tracer). It is Pin (M) on the turn signal switch connector. The front signal is a LIGHT BLUE wire at the turn signal switch Pin (H). If you probe these with a test lamp, they should both work the same except the yellow wire will be hot with the brake pedal depressed and the switch NOT in the left turn position. If there is no power at the switch connector, replace the switch.

Removed the switch plate and connected the two wires going into the dimmer box and the lights still dont come on. I as thikning by bypassing the dimmer the lights should still function. What else could be...


Hi Jay,
Ive suspect that there's a problem in the main line of the wiring. Since four halogen bulb are already replaced with a new bulb and bypassed the dimmer switch concentrate now on the wiring and the main panel board. Look for a tripped/busted breaker on the box, reset it.Replaced if busted. If nothing works, you need to check the wiring on the ceiling for open.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using fixya.

Tail lights dont work the brake ligts work


How are your dash lights? Usually dash lights and tail lights are on one circuit. The dimmer switch is also connected to both circuits. If there is a short in the dimmer switch, then either tail lights or dimmer switch could have problems.

Brake light doesn't light up


first you need to check the easiest thing, the rear light globe. replace the light bulb. if still not working, check fuses,, then you also have a front and rear brake lamp switches. Most likely it's just your rear light globe. easy fix!

Brake lighht does not work from front or rear lever, bulbs are fine.


Please check both switches - one on the handle bar and the other on the foot petal.

To prove or disprove, unplug then and short them out. If you short the harness out and the light llights, replace the switch.

You can also check the fuse in the fuse box ...

Solving tail light problem


tail lights not working did the right thing in checking the obvious so what you need to do is find your brake light switch which is on the brake pedal [top] take the the connector off get a spilt pin or something that will by-pass the switch connect together if these brake lights only work with ignition on don,t forget to switch it on your brake lights should come on if so replace the switch
