Probably a brake light switch problem. May be able to adjust, or may need to replace.
I just replaced the brake light switch in my 1998LX and the problem came back. I believe the cruise control could be shorting out the brake light switch.
brakelight switch, it is located under the steering column, and above the brake pedal where it connects to the car there is a little plunger switch up there.
The brake lights in your 1983 Nissan pickup truck are controlled by the brake light relay switch. When the brake light relay switch malfunctions the brake lights will stop working.
check the brake light relay under the hood
Step on brake first. Turn steering wheel slightly to remove tension on key.
if the plug is receiving power but the lights wonbt come on you may have to replace the entire lens piece since the brake lights are not a normal bulb they are built into the lens
It depends on the exact problem. If it's that both brake lights in the back do not work and the middle one works, it could be your turn signal switch.
check fuses, check brake light switch behind brake pedal.
To fix a 95 Dodge Dakota with no brake lights, first check to ensure the fuse has not blown. If the fuse is good, check to ensure the brake light bulbs are not burn out.
Check the fuse, the bulbs, and the brake light switch.
Check fuse Check stop light switch - usually located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area
Check all fuses. Wait until dark. Park where you could see the glow of the brake lights from inside the truck, were they to illuminate. Press and hold the brake pedal. Wiggle the turn signal switch about for a few seconds. If this causes the brake lights to work or to flicker, replace turn signal switch. Move tilt steering up and down. If this causes the brake lights to work or to flicker, replace turn signal switch. Switch 4-way flash hazard lights on and off a few times. See if that does anything interesting. Check for Body codes.
ensure that the indicator stalk is set in the middle when you turn off the ignition.
check the brake pedal, there is a switch on the back of the pedal that depressed when the brake is depressed that turns the lights on, when this is loose it keeps the lights on.
Possible bad stop light switch located near the brake pedal.
check your fuses and the brake light switch above the pedal
The brake light switch must be broken or out of adjustment.
I have a chev cavlier 1995 and the running lights do no work---on the dash the green light keeps blinking----what should I do?
I suspect either a faulty ground circuit, or a much easier fix, faulty bulb/bulbs. You might be surprised the havoc a grounded out bulb will cause an electrical system.
check the parking brake cables, any applied tension, and condition of the brake shoes
The 2000 to 2006 Volkswagens have had electrical recalls on them and are nitorious for having lighting problems. Best bet would be to call your dealerships and find out if they can fix it for free from the factory or sell it.
Does your key turn on? Need to know this first. Yes the key does turn on. And I no longer have brake lights. Checked all the fuses with no luck there. It your brake light switch. If your brake lights are not working, bulbs are fine and you can not get it out of park its either your switch or wires to your switch under dash. You probably had power window motor replace which seems to create alot of this problem. okay now how do I fix it without spending alot.
How the brake lights work on a 66 Mustang is very simple. Power goes from the headlight switch to the brake light switch, then through the turn signal switch and back to the brake lights. There is no fuse in that system. There is a self resetting circuit breaker in the headlight switch, but, if that was tripped, none of the lights on the car would work. The first thing to check is the brake light switch itself by bypassing it. Unplug the connector from the switch and run a jumper from from one slot in the connector to the other. If the brake lights come on, replace the brake light switch. If they don't, the problem is either a wire has lost continuity or there is a problem in the turn signal switch.
May possibly be in the multifuction switch on the left of the steering column!!!!
Check the brake light bulbs, Check the brake light fuse, Check the brake light switch, In that order.
