blubs blown? Check the turn signal switch.
check fuses then check all the bulbs, then check the turn signal switch the brake lights work through it
right side brake light is out, left works fine and of course the fuse is good, what is the most common problem?
If everything else works but the brake lights, check the brake light switch. It's mounted up under the dash and when you push the brake pedal a spring loaded plastic rod extends, making the connection inside the switch to light the brake lights. This is a pretty common wear item.....and fairly inexpensive.
It could be a blown fuse. Tail lights and brake/turn are on separate fuses. Apparently there is not a ground problem since brake/turn works OK.
THIS WAS MY QUESTION, BECAUSE THE 3RD BRAKE LIGHT WAS BLINKING I THOUGHT THERE WAS A MAJOR PR0BLEM,TURNS OUT IT WAS THAT BOTH BULBS WERE BAD,CHANGED THEM AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE
blown fuse or turn switch bad
the turn signal switch is probably bad
Check the 30 amp brake fuse (green) in the engine compartment fuse block.
I had a similar experience on my 57 Chevy back in the 60's. 1. CheckFuse Panel fuse under Brake Lights. 2. Check bulbs High Beam filaments. 3. Withrunning lights on tap tail lights to check for wire grounding shorts. 4. Check flasher to see that the lights work. 5. This is what I discovered to be wrong: Look under Brake Pedal for the Brake Relay Switch button. It works in reverse like the button on a refrigerator or vehicle door. When the button is pressed in by the brake pedal it opens the circuit to the High Beam of the brake/running tail lights. If working by hand but not by the brake adjust it. If not working replace it. It is the Brake Lights Relay Switch.
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
its gotta be a ford a problem with the center brake light circuit causes the lights to go out i believe it is a diode
The right brake light does not work on 1999 Ford Windstar. Tail lights and blinking light works. Changed bulb more than once, changed the plug in where the bulb goes but it still does not work. The tag lights are not working either.
Check the fuse. Then check the wiring.
If your 98 Monte Carlo brake lights do not work when you hit the brakes, but the top one behind the glass works, check the bulbs. If the bulbs have burn out, the lights will cease to work.
Replace the bulb it works when you turn on the driving lights and when you brake. there are two little springs inside the light one is for the brake light and the other is for the driving light. All you need to do is replace the bulb. good luck.
The left brake light works the right brake light doesn't and the bulbs is good
it could be the brake light switch that usually contacts the break pedal when you depress the brake pedal. check that out first.
Check the fuses for your brakes.
I had this happen to mine, I couldn't figure it out. everything seemed fine. I finally narrowed it down to the switch. Its the whole assembly in the steering column. Once I replaced it ( about 2 hours work) everything works fine. If you need more info firstname.lastname@example.org
yes. as long as everything works on the car. lights, blinkers ect yes as long as everything works . lights, blinkers, ect...
u have a short in ur wireing.
