Try removing brake light bulbs and sockets one at a time to try to find out if short is located in fixture itself or in wiring going to fixture--if you can isolate problem it should be easy to fix--either by replacing defective socket/bulb or wiring to same.

Brake lights won't come on on my 1998 gmc Fuses are good relay is good switch on the pedal is good.?

I had a similar problem check to see if the hazard light switch is in the full OFF position I just read this bit a bout the hazzard light switch being in the off position, I went out and checked it and found that it was in the off position. But, after turning it off then on then off again i noticed that the hazzards did not come on which led me to check the hazzard fuse which was blown which also doubled for the stop lights. Thanks again. I spent about four hours trouble shooting replaced bulbs, replaced a relay and was just about ready to take it to the dealer. Who knows how long or how much money that would have cost me . Thank God for you and wikianswers.

Try pushing the hazzard button in really quick and fast and spray some elctronic spray cleaner (CRC Autozone) in the switch until the hazzards start working This should take care of non working hazzard and turn signal issues. I am assuming the the arm is not physically broken. This worked on a 1998 Lincoln Continental Chuck

Why would the dimmer switch instrument panel light and taillights not be working on a Nissan 300ZX?

What can you do when your turn signals wont work meaning when you go to turn them on either left or right your hazzards come on you checked your flasher fuse and replaced hazzard switch.?

First, make sure the 4-way flasher switch is off. Some flashers only turn on when the turn signal is on as well. If the flashers STILL come on when the turn signal is on, you probably need a turn signal switch... it's inside the steering column and depending on the vehicle type, it can be a real pain to replace, or it can be quite easy. But that just about describes everything that can go wrong.

Is it normal for a 3-way dimmer to reduce the maximum brightness of a halogen light fixture?

Not really. This usually occurs when the dimmer switch is incompatible with the type of lamp being used or is going bad. If you've recently replaced the switch then check to see if the switch you used is suitable for use with halogen lamps. Halogen lamps draw more current than nomal incandescent lamps and if your switch was not made for use with this type of lamp you are creating an unsafe condition and a potential fire hazzard.
