when you remove the brake light and unscrew the cradle which the bulbs fit into remove the bulbs and make sure the connectors are clean and are get a clean and secure connection with the bulbs. Then get a wire tester that light up when current is flowing and use that to check for power. If your lights aren't working and the bulbs and fusesare good,try wiggling the hazard light switch while depresssing the brake pedal. If this causes them to work, you must replace the switch assembly.

99 Chevy Tahoe none of the left rear lights work replaced the circuit board and bulbs and they still don't work How should I troubleshoot?

I have a 97 Tahoe and the brake lights were not working and the problem was in the emergency flasher switch. I just jiggled it and the brake lights worked so am thinking you might have the same problem. It could also be the brake pedal switch located right on the pedal arm.

Where is the fuse for the third brake light on a 2005 Chevy Tahoe?

Fuse for the "Third" Brake LightAlthough I have no experience with the Chevy Tahoe, the systems are similar for almost all vehicles.The third brake light is tied into the wiring for the other brake lights and is protected by the SAME fuse they are.Thus, there is no separate fuse for the third brake light.Therefore, IF your other brake lights are working, then a failure of the third brake light to activate IS NOT caused by a fuse, but instead an "open circuit" condition in the "dedicated" third brakelight wiring [from where its wire "splits" off of the wiring harness to the other brake lights].This is usually caused by a connector which has become disconnected, or a cut or broken wire.

My brake lights don't work on 96 Chevy Tahoe the bulbs are good and no fuses are blown Any ideas?

You may need to check your brake light switch. It is a small switch located on top of your brake peddle (up on the arm of the peddle). This switch allows the brake lights to come on whenever you push the peddle.
