Check the fuses..If ok ,,then most likely the signal switch..Your brake light circuit runs through the signal switch as well..Get someone to watch your brake lights to see if they come on..Now push the brake down and move your signal switch around and see if the brake light comes on intermittently..If so its definetly your switch

If your signals and brakelights don't work it may be a bad ground wire also. Check for voltage to one of your brakelights with the brake pedal depressed using a test light or multimeter. If there is voltage but no lights it may be a bad ground.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

SOURCE: replace turn signal switch 1998 chevy lumina

You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

SOURCE: Just bought second hand 98 chevy lumina and

My 98 lumina has the exact same problem. I have found a way to fix this without buying anything. Try barely pulling back on the turn signal switch (pull it towards you 1/32 of an inch) and hit your brakes, they will work.

SOURCE: The brake lights wont work. The brake light over

the break light wire on the lumina runs through the blinker switch or multifunction switch on the colum.. check there as well as at the tail light sockets. on the late 90s gm cars the sockets had a tendancy to rot away... use a test light at the brake light wire in the trunk and have a friend apply the break. if there is power then may have to get new tail lights. or replacement bulbs.

How do you change a Turn Signal switch in a 1997 Chevy Lumina


Brake lights nothing to do with the stalk swiches, they will be on different circuits. If the wipers and indicators are on different stalks I would say that you should have your vehicle checked by a proficient auto electrician rather than attempt a repair yourself.

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.
