Normally, on most Harleys, the rear turn signals are just that, and not running lights.
If yours DID function as running lights as well as turn signals, then check the bulbs.
If they're incandescent bulbs and not LEDs, they should have 2 elements, and 1 of the elements might be burned out.

As far as the brake light not working from the rear brake pedal, it might be the switch itself, or a wire could have came unplugged.

Testimonial: "The foot pedal switch is underneath and works off of hydraulic fluid right so if its not getting enough pressure it won't send the signal that it's in use"

What will make the brake light not work from the foot pedal but does work from the hand lever and the back running lights don't work but the turn signals do on a 2006 1200 sportster


Most cars have a switch mounted to the brake pedal assembly and when you press the brake pedal down it pushes on the switch and completes the circuit for the brake lights. The parking brake has a different switch and circuit. Get a Haynes manual for your car it should have the location of the brake switch and how to test it. Good luck

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.

Brake light does not work 2007 fxstc harley


Hi Anonymous, always check the bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light.

Brake lights do not come on


You may have a defective brake switch. The switch is located behind the brake foot pedal. When you apply pressure to the brake foot pedal, the switch should compress.

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

Hi Anonymous, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck:

Brake lights don't work when handbrake is not engaged.


I've had a similar problem is so matter what i do the lights would stay on dim. My solution to my problem was that I had a bad/loose ground.

To your problem with the high mount break mount staying on is that you have a loose ground or a tear in the wire.

but since your truck isn't really that old I would first try contacting the Ford dealership asking them if there was a certain recall on this problem of somesort
