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.
Yes they indeed have brake lights...
BEHIND THE BRAKE PEDAL
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.
How do you replace a break light switch on 1995 Chevy Tahoe
either dimmer switch or blown fuse If you are saying that the tail brake lights are working but the third brake light is not....It may be a defective turn signal switch in the steering column.
Start with checking the fuses and bulbs. See sources and related links below for bulb information.
When you open your tailgate...are there 2 screws near the tail-light? homshopper at yahoo dot com.
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.
Need to know what the question is.
A 2002 Chevy Tahoe uses the standard brake fluid in passenger vehicles with power brakes. It is known as DOT3 brake fluid.
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.
If the brake lights do not work on Chevy Venture van 2000, try to disconnect the brake switch. Then short the two contacts of the connector to check if the brake lights are now working.
