Brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit from the tail lights. Tail lights are on the same circuit with the dashboard lights.

If the dashboard lights aren't working either, check the fuse. If they ARE working, check the headlight switch.

Answer Usually when the flasher blinks rapidly it's about finished. Try replacing the signal light flasher and see what happens. If you still don't have Brake Lights start looking for a short.

To change the brake lights on a 1997 Volkswagen Polo first locate the brake light housings in the trunk. Remove the plastic covers and unlock the bulbs. Remove the bulbs and install the new brake lights.

The brake lights won't turn off because the brake light switch on the pedestal of the brake pedal needs to be replaced.

I found this on my 1997 Silverado and found the connection from the wiring harness to the back OS the switch itself was loose, I could wigle it arouns and make the lights come back on.

check the brake light switch that is on top of your brake pedal under the dash, could be out of adjustment or bad.

It may be a defective brake light switch. The location of the brake lights fuse is listed in your owner's manual.

User Avatar

yes they have brake lights and you probably have a bad brake light switch which is on top of the brake pedal under the dash.

User Avatar

Check the brake light switch. It's probably attached to the brake pedal, under the dashboard.

More than likely there is a switch near the top of the brake pedal that is faulty. It usually looks like a small button that is released when you press on the brake pedal which turns on the brake lights.
