Brake light is controlled by a switch on the brake pedal arm. The switch needs adjustment or be replaced.
Hope this helps.

It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.

Sounds like you might have a caliper that is stuck and is not fully disengaging. If it is in the rear then you may have a bad rear caliper. Twoo things you can try. One is to crawl under the ca and adjust the tension two nuts on the emergency brake line. If that does not resolve the problem then remove the back tire and try to spin the drum or rotor whichever you may have. If it does not spin then try adjusting the e brake cable more if it still does not respond then you need to do a brake rebuild. Also does it pull while it is dragging? If it is then you will need to rebuild the brakes no matter what.

Yukon brake light


You have power at the fuse. The brake light switch has two wires on it, one is the supply from the fuse the other is to the lights, Check for volts at the switch (yes), bridge the two wires then follow the wiring checking for a live. Start at a light and work your way back up the loom checking all connecting sockets, has the vehicle a trailer socket, check the multi-plug where it picks up the wiring.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

Replaced fuse for horn/brake lights. horn will work but brake light stays on so i removed fuse..How do i get lights to stay off when fuse is installed?


look at the brake pedal there is a switch connected to it with a plunger to turn on the brake lights the stopper for the switch probably has fallen out you will need to stick a new one in.It is a very cheep easy fix.

Rear brake lights do not come on , including the one in the door when brake padel is depressed


check the fuses in the fuse panel,if the signal lights are working at the back then the bulbs are good(have seen all tail lights burnt)then you will have to check the brake light switch at the base of the brake pedal.its a 2 wire switch.one wire should have voltage all the time and the other only when the brake is depressed.if the power is not going through the switch then the switch needs replacing.also check for broken wires at the switch also.this should fix the problem.if the third light is not working chances are the bulb needs replacing.

1986 golf blows fuse for the brake lights every time I depress the brake pedal. It is not the brake switch. Running lights stay lit


You might try removing the brake light bulbs from each light including the third brake light and see if the fuse still blows. If it does not then replace the bulbs one at a time until it does. You will then have an area to look for the short that is causing your problem. If the fuse still blew with the lights out it will be a good time to get out the ohmmeter and check continuity for the power feed to the light sockets to ground. Not easy but a start!

No brake lights, new bulbs. where is fuse box in 2001 town & country


If both of your brake lights are out including the third light above the rear door you should check 1: brake switch located behind brake pedal. 2: relays under hood although not a likely problem. 3: trailer wiring if there is any. Most likely it will be the first though as it controls all brake lights.

96 Chevy 4x4 Break lights don't work and fuse is good


Have you checked the brake light switch under the brake pedal? It may be out of alignment with the pedal lever or dislodged from it's connector. If it is still in the right position, check if pedal travel compresses the switch, if not adjust it so it does. If everything is in order and it still doesn't work, replace the switch. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
