Answer . Sounds like you've been doing some guessing! You need to find where the power stops. Use a test light at the sockets. If no power, go to the wire to the socket. When you find where power goes in but doesn't come out, you have your answer. Assuming there is one answer. There is also a pos…sibility of a ground problem. Good luck.. Answer . If it uses the same bulbs for brake lights and rear turn signal lights, it's possible that the turn signal switch is faulty. On these designs, the brake light circuit runs through the turn signal switch so that when you turn, the brake light for that side is disconnected, allowing the bulb on that side to blink (otherwise the bulb would stay on steady for the brake light function).

Answer . \nthere was a recall on the hazard light switch that caused the rear brake lights (minus the high mount 3rd light) to stay on. the hazard lights and turn signals still worked. there was only an electrical malfuntion in the hazard lamp switch on the steering column.\n. \ngo to your ne…arest dealer, they will fix it for free and it only takes about 1/2 hour (MORE)
Answer . \nThe reason for the brake light's staying on are that the switch is faulty,\nTo find the switch, look at the brake pedal and follow it up to just below the dash area, the switch is located on a bracket, pull off the wire's and unscrew it from the bracket.\nbuy a replacement (about £5) …and screw it in until it just touches the pedal, reconnect the wires and test it. fine adjustment can be made by screwing the switch in and out until the light's work as they should, this is a easy task and no tools are needed, (MORE)
\n. \n Answer \n. \nThe computer has detected a problem with the emissions controls or something that effects emissions. Fix ASAP.\n. \n Cheaper Fix \nIt also can detect when you have not put your gas cap on tightly. The absence of a vacuum in the gas tank will cause the check engine ligh…t to come on as well. -Voice of experience.\n. \nPossibility:\nWhen my Bravada had a "check engine soon" light come on it was because the O2 sensors were bad. The next time it came on was because when I had the fuel tank replaced the mechanic forgot to plug a sensor above the tank back in. (MORE)
How do you fix your 1993 Oldsmobile Bravada brake lights that will not come on even after you replaced the brake switch and all the other lights still work?
Answer . NEVER replace anything that hasn't been verified to be bad. Check a switch with a meter before replacing it. Unfortunately there are far too many mechanics that just replace parts without any thought to what is actually wrong.\n. \nI'd check the turn signal switch (test it, don't replac…e it until you know it's bad) and the connections that operate the brake lights. Use a meter to determine if voltage is present at different points along the wire that drives the right and left brake lights. (MORE)
\nThis is for a 97 Blaazer but it is the same procedure as I used it to replace the switch in my own 97 Bravada.\n.
There could be a loose connection. However, I had the same trouble and it only grew worse. The electronics in the dashboard burned out and the dash needed to be replaced. This is expensive. There are companies out there that rebuild dashboard elctronics and you can buy one used. I think I payed clos…e to 200$. Good Luck I just had the same problem with the digital dash board. It all went out. Yes there are companies that rebuild them. I got an estimate on mine to get replaced and was over $300. I looked on EBAY and found the digital cluster for $10 and paid $15 for shipping. I found the instructions to replace it myself and after 2 1/2 hours, 2 cups of coffee and 3 cigs, it was itstalled and it works!! So check out EBAY for Chevy S10 digital dash, or just digital dash. I had the same problem with my 94 Bravada. For a while, I could smack the dash and either the gauges or the speedometer would come back on, but eventually I lost them all. I didn't want to pay for the rebuild without trying something cheaper, so I tore out the electronic dash assembly and dismembered it down to the circuit board. I then got out my old soldering iron and touched each of the solder joints to remelt the original solder and renew the connections. After plugging the dash back in and turning the key on I was amazed that all of the lights actually came on. I couldn't wiggle it hard enough to make them go out! (MORE)
Maybe You may have it on "auto" not off check all switches off You may have a faulty selector switch. Also some vehicles always blow heat even with the heater off.
my best friend owns a 92 bravada with a 4.3 vortech v6. he was getting around 6 to 8 miles to the gallon.There were two types of injection systems used for those years. multi-point and center port. his was center port. this is by far the worst injection system ever used, hence its very short product…ion. we found out through diagnostics that the injector was leaking fuel inside the plenum and causing a very dangerous fuel puddle to develop. three cylinders were being starved so the CPU tried to compensate by dumping more fuel. Obviously, this only made it worse. its not difficult to fix, but it could be expensive. the injector alone was almost three hundred dollars. but, this is something you can fix yourself with a few common hand tools and a couple of hours. you only have to remove the upper intake plenum, which is easily accessed, disconnect the feed hoses from the injector, transfer them to the new one, and repeat the steps in reverse. be sure to connect ALL sensors to their rightful places before trying to start the motor. and your good to go! In the 1996 and up 4.3 they have Central Sequantial Fuel Injection there is no spider assembly and you are able to replace each injector. These injectors have poppets that can leak and cause higher fuel consumption. Leaky fuel pressure regulator. (MORE)
In a car with brake and directional on the same filament how does the brake switch allow the signaling light to flash rather than stay on all the time?
Answer . \nthe circuit is broken through the turn signal switch, allowing the light to flash
Answer . \nDisconnect the neg battery cable for about 30 seconds; this will reset the computer. If there is a existing problem the code will reset however. Get yourself a HAYNES manual to identify the code and problem.
Answer . most brake switches have a method to adjust the position of the switch. check to see. it it dose, make the adjustment, and continue adjusting until the problem is resolved. the other possiblity is that the mounting bracket for the switch was bent at some point. hope it helps. dubof…f (MORE)
most of the time, the bulb socket just comes out the back of the fog lamp. look on the inside of the front bumper for them. Should be easy.
shifting problems . Are you certain the transmission is in Park? Something similar happened to me. The brake light switch went out and that caused the shifter to not function properly. Check to see if your brake lights work.
I had a problem where the ignition lock went out. This caused all my gauges to stop working as the car thought the key was turned off. It also would not let me take the key out. And with this, the fuel pump would contanstly turn on. I had the new lock put in and new keys made for about 200 bucks.
There 2 screws when tailgate is open remove screws and pull out lens then unscrew toil light socket
Answer . The ignition switch is located inside the steering coulum below the key and tumbler.
Most offen its the encoder motor it is a electric motor the engauges the All wheel drive its located to the passager side of the transfer case and can be bought from auto parts store for around 170.00$ Thanks James
My 1997 is located on the drivers side engine block towards the back above spark plugs it threads into engine and has 2 wires coming out
Answer . try replacing brake light switch sounds like you have a short in it
Answer 1 IF the switch is KNOWN to be good, then the problem is one of two things. First, the proper adjustment of brake light switches IS CRITICAL to proper operation. IF the adjustment is proper, then the only other cause would be that, somehow, the and/or a (any) "hot" wire is in contact wit…h the wire from the brake light switch to the brake lights. This is a very unusual and almost never occurring situation. Most brake light switches are adjusted via screw threads on the mounting end of the switch which screws in or out of the mounting bracket which is also threaded. The best method of adjusting the switch is to have a helper stand at the rear of the vehicle to keep you posted regarding the ON-OFF status of the brake lights while you trial adjust the switch. To adjust the switch where the lights are staying on, "unscrew"/back out the switch from the mount just until the brake lights go out. Then press the brake pedal to make sure that you did not back the switch out too far. If so, screw it back in, one quarter turn at a time [testing between each adjustment] JUST UNTIL the brake lights turn on when the pedal is depresed, but goes out when the pedal is released. Good luck. (MORE)
If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?
There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery woul…d be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that.. replace the broken switch (MORE)
mine was doing the same thing turned out to be a loose ground at the connection strip
I just had an oil change and the guy turned the key on (did not start car). Pumped the gas pedal three times simultaneous. Repeated with key off.
If the Bravada is not starting but the engine turns over, check forspark at the plugs. If there is no spark the ignition system willneed troubleshooting to find the problem.
Your vehicle is equipped the Daytime Running Lights, (DRL). A daytime running lamp ( DRL , also daylight running lamp or daytime running light ) is a lighting device on the vehicle that are installed in pairs. They automatically are switched on when the vehicle is moving forward, and is inten…ded to increase the conspicuity of the vehicle during daylight conditions. (MORE)
No switch it is an all wheel drive system, I think it is 30% front wheels and 70% rear wheels, and gives more traction to the wheels that slip automaticly. That is why it is called a SMARTRAC. They are great in the winter.
This means it is time to get the vehicle serviced. Take it in to amechanic that will be able to give it the care that it needs.
If your lights are flickering on your 98 Bravada, you might have ashortage. It can also indicate that your alternator is failing.
There could be several issues. The most likely is that there is aclogged fuel filter. Another could be a faulty timing belt.
if you have a "chipped " key, the security system is not recognizing the signal.. Have you tried a spare key.?

After repairing the cause of the code, you clear the code with a scan tool.
After you have fixed the issue that caused your check engine light to come on, you can use a pocket scanner to erase the code, but this causes your computer to reset and during an inspection will cause many unready codes failing the inspection. You must drive your bravada 5 miles at a non-stop 55mil…es an hour to clear the computer, sometimes it just takes a few days of driving to get the reset to clear all codes but normally the 5 miles at 55mph will do the trick.

Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. This will retrieve the code which will tell you what part is being effected.
In the front grill. Just grab grill and pull and it snaps out and the sensor is located right there.
Underneath the dash there is a small button that is pressed in when your pedal is released. Sometimes they get kicked out of adjustment or dirty and get pluged up. Try to clean it and see if you can push it in, it should pop back out. To adjust it, you need to loosen the nut that secures it and adju…st it out until your lights go off. then tighten the nut back down. (MORE)
Yep. "The specific years and models affected are 1999-2005 Jetta sedans, 2001-2005 Jetta wagons, 1998-2007 New Beetle, 2003-2007 New Beetle Convertibles, 1999-2006 Golfs and GTIs and the 2004 R32, all in the United States." Make an appointment at your local VW dealer to have it fixed for free.… Soon, too, if you have an automatic transmission. If the switch fails, it can trip up the tranny and not allow you to shift out of Park. That'll require a tow to a shop/dealer. -mr2edh (MORE)
Simple answer is "no". It stopped being mandatory around '89 or '91. Therefore, GM cars/trucks don't have them, but Ford vehicles still have them.
I have an 2003 Bravada and there is no way to turn the air bags off You CANNOT turn the air bag system off. You may be able to turn the passenger air bag off. Check with a GM dealer or the owner's manual.
If the problem is that the air never gets warm, it's most likely a stuck-open thermostat. If not that, heater core may be plugged.
The brake light switch (aka stop light switch) resides at the top of your brake pedal near the pivot point, next to an identical looking cruise control switch. On a 2001 Xterra, the brake one is on the passenger side (left). When the brake pedal is released, the switch is engaged and the brake light…s on the back of the vehicle go off. The switch can go bad but the first thing to check is a button-type of a pad that is located on the brake pedal arm where it pushes the switch. The button does crack and split off in time and is often the cause of the brake lights staying on. If the button is missing, you will see a small hole in the brake pedal arm with the switch plunger not being engaged at all. For comparison, look at the cruise control switch next to it: it has the identical button. The round button is made of a hard silicone type of plastic and resembles the those pad that sit on the bottom corners of small furniture and office machines. Besides the dealer, some auto parts stores may have them on the side. Installation is simple: get a foot stool so that you can lay on that and the floor under the steering wheel; start the vehicle so that the brake pedal can be pressed further down; make sure the parking brake is engaged; use a dab of soap on the part of the button (tit) that is to be pushed in to the hole; maneuver the button into the space between the switch and the hole with the tit facing down (small pliers may help hold the button steady); when the tit centers on the hole, release the brake and the pressure from the switch will pop the button into the hole; and your are done! A towel nestled against the firewall under the pedal is advisable because if the button is dropped (and you will do so a number of times), it can fall behind the carpet. Hope this helps! (MORE)
The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on,… too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

On the Bravada as with any vehicle the brakes can be replaced with standard tools with few exceptions. When you purchase your new brake parts the guy at the counter will know if you need any special tools and most parts houses will loan or rent you the special tool you need.
Are you talking about the switch located on the brake pedal? If that is the one you are interested in removing and replacing it is held onto the brake pedal by a consarned clip that is difficult to nie on to impossible for the novice to take off and replace. I have mine off and am trying to put it b…ack on with little success. Ifg anyone out there knows an easy simple way to do this please answer. (MORE)
Dome light fuse for 2004 Bravada is fuse#4 (10amp) in fuse box underneath back seat on driver's side
The light is reset with a scan tool after the repair. There is not a button.
If you follow the brake pedal up behind the dash you should see 2 switches. There should be a plastic piece about the diameter of a nickel mounted to the arm on the pedal, most likely it has broken and fallen out. You probably saw it in the floor but did not realize what it was. I fixed mine by usin…g a round magnet out of a refrigerator clip and put it on the arm so that when the brake pedal is released it will push the actuator on the switch (MORE)
There should be a connector for the lights above the rear bumper, but you may not want to disconnect it because then your likely to get pulled over for having a faulty license plate light
The 2000 bravada is a smart trak therefore it stays in all wheel drive all the time, the only way to make it not all wheel drive is to remove the front drive shaft going from the transfer case to the front end. Also do no put different size tires on the front and back while both shafts are in becaus…e this causes the rear end to spin at one speed and the front end to spin in another direction, and this will cause your transer case to grenade.
