Are the bulbs the correct ones for your car. What with the kambus systems in cars now you have to be very careful what you do as it can end up being very costly trying to save money.

Also some bulbs only go in one way.

When I start car taillights come on but no brake lights or third light in window


Well your parking lights should not come on when you start the car unless you have turned on light switch. Most cars you must step on the brake to start, so the brake lights would be on. Your problem maybe a burnt out bulb on rear window lite.

TEST: have someone watch the rest and push on brakes see what lights. If 2 tail lite then its blub.
If non light its the fuse in box underdash.
Now take foot off brake and turn on lights and emergency flashers walk around check all lights then step on brake and see if brakes light up.

Replace bulbs or fuses as needed.

Hope this helps Mike

Third brake light does not work after changing the bulbs


If some of the lights work then you probably don't need to change the light assembly. My first guess would be a burnt out fuse. Look for the fuse box and remove the cover. Usually on the inside of the cover it will have a diagram for all the fuses and you can find the one for the brake lights. Some vehicles have relays that are fried and these may be under the hood. Just look for a black box which contains electrical relays and other fuses. The last thing I can think of is a switch that is right above the brake pedal. When you apply the brake a small plastic or metal extends and this is what makes your brake light come on. www.lightdeal.co.uk

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Brake lights not working but third brake light works?


Check your fuse for the brakes, if fuse is blown replace. If not fuse go buy a package of brake light bulbs at the auto store. Then replace the bulbs.
