Headlamps on, both brake lamps are on;hit brake, left brake lamp brightens, right lamp remains dim;headlamps off, hit brake, only left lamp lights. What could be the problem?


Your right brake light is not the same bulb as your rear running light that comes on with the headlights. Different bulbs. Your right brake light is simply burnt out or has worked its way out of the connection. Take it to Advance Auto Parts. They may even change it for you. Not a big problem.

check for a bad ground wire for the tail lights. You are looking for a black ground wire near the bottom of the left rear corner of the car, inside. you may need to take the trim panel off to find it. if you take out the left tail light you should be able to follow the harness to where the black wires come out and a terminal is screwed to the body. turn on the hazard lights and when you get near the problem the lights will brighten and dim.

Rear brake light does not work tail light does need to know were brake light switch is?


Your bike is equipped with two brake light switch, either of which should cause the brake light to come on when activated. The front brake light switch is in the right handlebar switch housing and it has an activation pin that sticks out of the switch housing towards the front brake lever. A tab on the front brake lever operates the switch. When the tab on the lever moves away from the switch housing, the pin comes out of the switch housing and turns on the brake light. The rear brake light switch is a pressure switch located in the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder and goes towards the rear brake. Just follow the metal from the rear master cylinder towards the rear brake and you'll find it.

Good Luck

Break tail light stays on all the time? where is the swich


There are two switches. One is on the right handlebar switch housing. It is operated by the front brake lever. When you pull the lever, it pivots on a pin which causes the backside of the lever to move forward. There is a tap on the backside of the lever that presses the front brake light switch turning the brake light off. When you pull the lever, the tab moves forward and releases the switch turning the light on. Now, if the light stays on, you can loosen the bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder onto the handlebars, slide the front brake master cylinder down as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this doesn't turn the light off, this switch my be bad or the lever has too much wear in it and should be replaced.

There is another switch in the system for the rear brake. Follow the metal brake line coming out of the rear of the rear brake master cylinder and you'll come to a "Tee fitting" with a pressure switch in it. This is the rear brake light switch. Usually when it goes bad, the brake lights will not come on, not light up all time. But, then I'm pretty sure that I haven't seen everytig. Test the switch for contineuity using an obm meter.

Good Luck

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..

Rear driver's side tail light goes off when break pedal applied


I had the same problem. They were on when the headlights were on, but turned off instead of brightening when I pressed the brake. I replaced the bulb and now it gets bright when I press the brake instead of turning off (like it should).
