I also have a 98 Lumina Sedan with the same problem. I did the full wiring check and finally narrowed it down to the turn signal switch. I noticed that if I signal for a right turn and apply the brakes, the left brake light comes on. The turn signal handle seems a bit loose but the brake lights work if you hold it up briefly (like to make a lane change to the right). Replacement part is GM OEM # 19005031 (AC Delco D6226A) for cars w/o the radio accessory on steering wheel. If radio accessory on steering wheel, GM OEM # is 19005032. It takes 90 min to 2 hours to replace (shop time at dealer is 1.4 hours).

Why on a 99 Chev Lumina are high mount brake light working signals and 4ways but not brake lights?

probably your blinker switch (multi-accessory switch). The high mount brake light is wired directly from the switch on the pedal but the rear two lights are wired through the pedal switch and then through the the blinker switch on the steering column. Almost all of those blinker switches go bad.


What would cause the rear parking brake lights to stay on and drain battery of 1992 Lumina when car is turned off?

The brake lights will stay on if the switch is either out of adjustment or damaged. Pull up on the brake pedal to see if it will go out, if it does, you might be able to get by just adjusting the position of the brake light switch. BTW, it's on the brake pedal mechanism, under the dashboard.

If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?

There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch
