If you have power at the harness pin but not the light then your problem could be a cut wire grounding to frame between connector and light. you did not say what kind of light you have. a regular filament light check the socket as they sometimes go bad due to vibration, if it is a led light, look for a bad componet on the circuit board like a open resistor or such. if you are handy with a soldering iron, you can repair it pretty cheaply.

Sounds like you had a short circuit in your tail light/ brake light. When you depress the brake pedal, the short circuit loaded down your electrical system.

Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked


Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

My brake light fuse continues to blow out, the rest of the tail light, turnsignals, tail light, work fine, it is just the brake light.


There is a short in the brake light circuit, the 'live' wire is earthing somewhere,you will have to trace tht wire and rectify.

Replace the bulb in the tail light. It's dual filament bulb. Brake light is separate from the running light.
