1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working

Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Replaced brake switch,new brake-light bulbs, fuse ok, still get no brake lights, and turn signals in rear not working....what can i do ?

Hi, assuming you have the correct bulbs installed, the wires leaving the turn signal switch seem to be broken along their trip to the back of the truck. If you tell me your model and year, I may be able to tell you where to look for the problem.

Brake lights don't work how to fix

When a vehicle's brake lights all go out at the same time, the culprit is usually the
"stoplight Switch" which is operated by depressing the brake pedal.

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.
If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Unplug the wires.
  • Replace with a new switch. Adjust as needed.
  • Plug the wires back in.
If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:
  • Mark and disconnect the wires.
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Screw the replacement switch in.
  • Reconnect the wires
Here's a picture of the "Stoplight Switch", aka Brake Light Switch - 1995 GMC K1500 Sierra


Brake lights (stoplights) are activated by a mechanical switch on the brake pedal.
To test a suspected bad stoplight switch, bypass it with a jumper wire. The stoplights should light when the wires are connected. Use the test light to see if there is power at one of the lights.
  • If the lights come on when the wires are connected but not when the brakes are applied, replace the switch.
  • If the stoplights operate without the key on, remove the stoplight fuse before removing the switch.
  • If the new switch is adjustable, adjust it so that it is open when the pedal is released.lights should come on about 1/4" after the pedal is applied.

1995 gmc K2500 left and right brake lights come on with ignition turned on. 3rd brake light comes on when you step on the brake 4 way flashers do not work. Ignition turned off 4 way flashers and brake...

I think your trouble is in the turn signall switch, just had the same trouble on my truck. Turn signall switch is about $250 because it is actually turn signalls, wipers, washers, 4 ways, and dimmer all in one.

Brake lights do not work on a 1993 v-6 PU Can I obtain a schematic wiring diagram from you?

You need to replace the brake light switch (aka stop light switch) which is mounted on the upper brake pedal, with a electric plug in. If this doesn't help, let me know.
