if they work loose, the tabs that keep them from shifting are broken. replace them. its called a "fitting kit" if you get them from the dealer. theyre inexpensive and simple to replace.

Blown fuse, blown bulbs, loose wire, corroded bulb sockets, or defective brake light switch.

Did the controls themselves stop working or just the lights behind the control panel? First thing would be to check the fuses that control these accessories. If the fuses are okay, I would then suspect the wiring behind the dash to have come disconnected or loose.

A couple things can cause your right side brake light to stop working. The most common cause is a burnt out lightbulb. A loose ground wire can also cause it to stop working.

probably a short between the dash and brake switch. it may just be a loose connection. hope it helps. duboff

Buy a new one and you will see what all you have to take loose.

check your ground wires...they might be loose or detached.

check fuses if no luck check the brake pedal switch down under the dash by the pedal or check for a loose ground

No. 2008 highlander has a aluminum filter housing you need to remove with a special type of filter wrench. I was able to tap mine loose without a wrench but it could be at 24n-m tight which is difficult to loosen.

Can be a few things. Blown fuse, defective or out of adjustment brake light switch, blown brake light bulbs, loose or corroded wiring, or corroded bulb sockets.

There are many reasons why the leveling system will quit working. The first thing to check would be the brake interlock wires, one may have come loose.

yes,it is expensive 125.00 but if you loose the master key it will run 500.00 and 1000.00 to get a new computer plus 75.00 to reprogram.the master is the only key that opens the glove box.i know this first hand i bought a used Toyota 2003 highlander with no master and had to fight the dealer to eat up the cost and still had to pay for programming and a remote.

If the other side is still working it is not the fuse. its more likely a bulb or loose wiring.

Sticky caliper, worn brake pads, loose ball joint, loose tie rod end.

You need to bleed the brakes. Loosen the bleeder valve on one of the calipers and have someone press and hold the brake pedal. Tighten the valve and release the brake pedal. (If you let off of the pedal with the valve loose, air will be drawn into the system and make the problem worse.)

If you mean loose as in the brake pedal is low, front of car nosediving when you apply brakes,your rear brake shoes are 1-out of adjustment,2 wore out and need replacing.You can diagnose this by raising parking brake lever,and hitting the brake pedal. If pedal is higher then the diagnosis is proven,if not,you have hydraulic problem-ie.fluid leak,front caliper guide pins stuck,master cylinder bypassing,needing replaced.

You remove the brake caliper frame and rotor is then loose.

Brake pads could be loose or falling apart.

Switch loose or faulty? Check if the switch is fitted to the brake pedal. Perhaps the bracket has worked loose.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck. Remove the brake pads. When the brake drum is not loose you can tap on it with a hammer or mallet. Once the brake drum is loose it will slide off.

If the speedometer doesn't work either, then the cable broke or came loose. Otherwise, the gears in the odometer broke.

Air in the brake lines. Severly worn break pads. Worn brake boost piston. Cracked brake line on that brake. Loose brake line.

Check for a loose connection Check for a loose fuse in the fuse box Check for an open wire in the brake light circuit

User Avatar

Shouldn't have anything to do with it. The brake lights are on a completely different circuit than the headlights. If your brake lights are not working check the switch on the brake pedal. Before you do that check the fuse first. If the fuse is all right it is probably the brake light switch which is bad. Check the bulbs to see if they are burned out. If you can't tell, replace them anyway. If the Brake switch is good and the fuse is good, you may have a loose wire, or a bad wire.
