A multimeter is a good tool to check for a short in the brake light. Put one end of the meter on one side of the wire near the brake light. Put the other end on the metal that is around the bottom of the bulb. If the bulb does not light up, there is a short. If the bulb lights up, there is no short in the wire.
short in electrical circuit
Check for a short in the brake light circuit. A dead short will dim lights & blow fuses. Have you checked the charging system & battery? Pull the fuse for the brake lamp circuit & see if the same problem still exists.
It's because you have a short current somewhere. You need to check the brake light wiring.
check your brake fluid level under the hood. This may be true if the brake light is in the dash . If the light your talking about is the actual brake lights on the rear of the car you probablly have a short in the steering column
First check your turn signal switch
Check the light for condensation. There could be a short that has cause the light to malfunction. If so, the entire light unit will have to be replaced.
bad connection/short or burnt out brake bulb. Check the harness both under the steering wheel and at the lights.
Short in the wiring, brake light assembly, or possibly a defective brake light switch.
Check to see if water is getting into the brake light sockets causing them to short to ground
A short in the Brake light circuit? Bad brake light switch?
brake lights dont work start here check break light fuse check bulbs in tail lights check stop light switch on brake pedal under dash if problem still exists there is a break or short somewhere in the wiring
Warning light usually indicates low brake fluid or parking brake not fully released
its either a dead short or not properly grounded check that out
what is short to voltage in a car electrical circuit & how to check it ?
Brake System Warning (check your brake fluid, the parking brake, etc...)
Well you narrowed it down to an electrical problem, get yourself a dmm and start chasing wires.I've also seen a bulb burn out and short causing the fuse to blow when the brake pedal is depressed. double check your fuse again and if its still good have at it with the digital multimeter.
Stuck brake light switch, or a short to power somewhere in the brake light circuit.
Short circuit in either; The brake light wires, the brake lights themselves, the braking system if it is electrical assist, or other things. More important- WHAT FUSE IS IT?
Check the wiring. Probably got a short. It could be a short, however, if your tail lights are illuminated, then you might rule out a short. You might also check your fuse for the brake lights. If the fuse is good, then you should check your brake light switch. It is probably a small box-like object attached to the brake pedal arm. To check the switch, you will need a circuit tester or testlight. The switch has two wires. One of the wires will be hot (have current all the time). Locate the hot lead. The other side should not be hot. Now, depress the brake and check the other side. If it is now hot, the brake light switch is good. If you have tail lights, and if the fuse is good, and the brake switch is good, then the problem may be in your turn signal. Hopefully, you have a blown fuse.
The trailer has a dead short in that right side brake light circuit.
Could be a short in the brake light switch or a bad bulb.Try removing all of the tail light/brake light bulbs and step on the brake pedal to see if the fuse still blows.If it does it is a brake light switch problem or a short in the wire harness.If not it's a bad bulb.
A short in the brake light circuit.
try replacing brake light switch sounds like you have a short in it
1. a bad ground wire, or 2. a short in the brake electrical system let me know if it helps?
There is a short in the wiring or a corroded brake light receptacle.
