Try changing the bulb first, before looking for other issues. Usually a combination brake/tail light has 2 filaments in one bulb.

Rear hazard flashers don't work 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier


Hazard flasher power comes from the 20A S/LP fuse in the fuse block. It is applied to the hazard flasher in the convenience center. Flasher output is applied to the turn/hazard/headlight SWITCH assembly where activation of the HAZARD switch causes flashing power to be applied to the turn indicators and the turn filaments of the front and rear dual park/turn lights. If replacing the fuse doesn't work, trace the power through the circuit. Check for misssing/disconnected ground wires.

1997 Chevy Lumina REAR BRAKE LIGHTS DONT WORK


This will either be a fuse or the brake light switch which is on the pedal it's self. More likely the switch as these are fickle at best.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy. Have tail lites but no brake lites. Third lite on top works whet brakes applied


Since the high mounted brake light works you know that the brake light switch is working. Now you need to check the brake light bulbs in the rear tail light assemblies. The brake lights are separate from the tail light (parking or running lights). There are two screws that hold the rear light assemblies in place.

Dashboard lights and rear exterior running lights not working. blinkers, flashers, and brake lights work. regular tail lights won't work. Not finding a blown fuse. not finding any fuse listed as "tail...


the fuse is labled 'brake'

I would replace the fuse... and then have someone stand to the rear of the vehicle and watch the lights come on as I applied the brake... if the fuse blows again... note which tail light did NOT come on durring this test and replace the bulb.. it is grounding to itself and causing the short.

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..

82 harley sportster brake light


try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it
