Ok... You've put batteries in it, right? And they're fresh? Good.
The end cap is screwed in nice and firm? Finger tight is right.
You can see a globe in the lens? There's usually a replacement in the end-cap on these maglites.
The big black rubber button near the light end of the torch is an on/off switch. Press it! (Or if you want to test it, drive over it with a truck like they do in the commercials!)
Very occasionally the switch fails but they're tough and well designed. It is not a common problem.

Trying to replace the stop light switch on a 1986 toyota 4runner


Move into a position where you can easily see underneath the driver's side of the Ford pickup's dashboard. How you do this depends on your physical size and dexterity.

Shine the flashlight on the brake pedal arm to illuminate the stop light switch and the stop light switch mounting bracket. Unplug the Ford pickup's brake light wiring harness from the switch by hand.

What causes the brake lights not come on,but allow 3rd mount light to come on? i've checked the bulbs,sockets,fuses. now i'm stumped.


THOSE LIGHTS ARE ON 2 DIFFERENT CIRCUITS. ONE WHITE WIRE COMING OUT OF THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH GOES TO THE CENTER BRAKE LIGHT. THE OTHER WHITE WIRE GOES FROM THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH TO & THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH SO THE LIGHTS CAN BE USED AS BRAKE LIGHTS OR TURN LIGHTS. THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS GOOD BECAUSE THE CENTER BRAKE LIGHT IS WORKING. IT IS A BAD WIRE { WHITE } FROM THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH OR A BAD TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

Brake lights dont work


Check the brake light switch, it is down on the brake pedal lever, you can dis-connect the wire connector at the brake light switch and check for broken wires at the connector, and then jumper the connector with a paper clip, if the brake lights come on then replace your brake light switch.

There might be more than one switch attached to the brake light pedal lever, the brake light switch usually only has two wires going to it when there are two switches.

If there is no problem with the brake light switch then you can suspect the turn-signal switch to be at fault, as all of the running lights, turn-signals, brake lights, and hazard lights are all ran through the turn-signal switch. You can also try stepping on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch and see if the brake lights flicker or come on.

No brake lights or turn signals head lights and turns work on the front and i have parking lights all around and all fuses are good


It is most likely your brake light switch. The wiring from the brake light switch goes to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is centered both brake lights are connected, unless the switch is faulty. When the switch is to the left only the right light is connected to the brake light switch and vice versa. A bad switch can cause all kinds of problems with the brake lights as well as the turn signals.
To replace, locate the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal (on the mounting bracket). Unplug the connector. Loosen the locking nut and remove the switch. Install the switch and adjust the height so the switch activates at the right position. Reconnect the connector and check for proper function.
