Check your brake fluid level in the reservoir; some Toyotas have wheel cylinder sensors; some Toyotas have master cylinder sensors; you also have a sensor on the parking brake and on the brake pedal inside the cab. Check all that.

This indicates either low fluid in the Master cylinder resivior, and/or a leak in the brake system. This needs to be checked immediately as your brakes could go completely out and you won't be able to stop your car! Look at each wheel & if you see brake fluid coming down the inside of the wheel or tire, that's where the leak is. Otherwise, there is a line leaking, or your Master cylinder is leaking & you would be able to identify that by having brake fluid under the flor mat in front of the driver, behind the brake pedal.

Please get this checked immediately. Good Luck

    If you can't find a leak, the parking brake may not be completely releasing, it will also trigger the dash light.

Sometimes the brake pads have a wear indicator which activates when the pads wear down to much, If the pads are in good condition, it may be the brake switch is sticking ,you will usually find it connected to the brake pedal,give it a spray and check it does not stick.

This can mean several things.... The brake switch is broken or needs to be adjusted, for the parking brake.... The system has a leak and the sensor has detected a low fluid level.... The front pads are low and the fluid in the reservoir has a float the closes a switch turning on the light....

When light switch is off only 3rd brake light work, when switch is on the back lights are stuck on 3rd light works normal what could be the problem?


Are the brake lights stuck on or are you just seeing the parking lights on without the brake lights lighting up? Sounds like you have no rear brake lights, check your emergency light switch. Sometimes it may not switch completely, turn it on and off a few time and then recheck it.

I replaced a cracked rear tail light with an after market new light. Now the brake light won't work but reverse lights and directional signal do. The bulbs are fine as I've moved them around and...



  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

2002 Chevy Blazer, rear brake lights do not work but the third light above the window does. Replaced bulbs and still not working I have the same problem got a fix it ticket the other.  Did you guys...


Trace the wiring as it comes from the laft and right brake light. May have to remove the brake light covers. Sounds like a crimped or shorted wire leading to the brake lights, possibly a loose or broken ground wire. One of the wires leading from the fuse block to the rear oif the vehicle could also have been damaged if the door sills have been removed by someone earlier to install things like speaker wires, etc. Also check to see if you have tail lights and directional signals.

When you replaced the bulbs did you get bulbs with double filiments - one acts as the tail lights, the other serves as the brake lights (both inside the same bulb). Compare the ID numbers on the bulbs with those which are required for this vehicle, but you should clearly see two different filiments inside of the bulbs when viewed from the side.

Brake lights out at separate times, but both bulbs okay.


i would double check the bulbs, i dont know much about escapes but most cars run a twin filament bulb, one is for taillights, the other for stoplights, if its not that it may be a brake sensor fault or somethings shorting out somewhere.

Fuz box


Your vehicle has 3 fuse panels. Instrument fuse panel is located under the dashboard, left of the steering column. Passenger side fuse panel is located behind passenger side kick panel. Main fuse and relay block is in engine compartment, near battery. There does not appear to be a "reverse light" fuse. Do all you other lights work properly(headlights, brake lights, turn signals, running lights, dashboard lights, etc.)? If so then there is a problem in the reverse light circuit, OR the bulbs are burned out. YES, I have seen both burn out at same time. Hope this helps a little

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.
