I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.

Taillight works when headlights are on, but does not shine brighter when braking or signaling


Change the bulb. When you press the pedal the brake switch changes the circuit to the 21w brighter circuit for the brake light.

Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

2004 dodge dakota. brake lights not working but bulb is good. taillights and turn signals are working. Is there a mechanical switch by the brake pedal to look for??


there is a switch above the brake pedal that turns the brake lights on when u depress the pedal, use a volt meter set to DC volts and check for voltage to the switch and out of it when the brake pedal is depressed, see p[icture of switch belowe364f34.jpg

My 94 buick regals turn signals and brake lights dont work the head lights and tail lights do work we replace the bulbs flasher relay and fuses what could it be


could be brake light switch but i would be more inclined to think the signal switch is bad, the brake light circuit goes from the pedal to to the turn signal switch then to the taillights

No brake lights when i push the pedal


Its the signal light switch on the lever.
THe signal switch has all connections relating to the brake lights!
solution play around with the lever and see or get someone to see the brake lights work with the brake pedal down.
My car does the same thing! when i move the lever towards activaiting the high beams the brake lights work.
just gently push on the lever to see the lights go on.
you have to replace the switch and requires removing the steering wheel without setting off the airbag.

I have lost my signals and brake lights. all other lights work.Headlights, taillights, markerlights. I have replaced the "Signal Stat" in the steering column, no change. HELP


1. Check for power to the turn signal switch on the White and Yellow wires with the brake pedal depressed. If low voltage, check the stop light switch operation on the brake pedal. Check the Center High Mount stop light (CHMSL) circuit operation.

2. Check the black wires at the turn/brake sockets for a good ground.

3. If all OK, check for a bad frame ground to battery negative. 4. and dont forget to check the rear bulb
