If the brake lights do not brighten when the brake is applied on a 2000 Dodge Stratus yet the bulbs are not burned out what do you need to check?

There are two filaments in the bulb that is used for taillights and brake lights. Make sure BOTH filaments are good before assuming that the bulb is not burned out. If, in fact, both filaments are good, next check the brake light switch. If it is good, check the turn signal switch that is in the steering column

Possibly the dash light dimmer, located next to the headlight switch, is turned down. Turn it to brighten the lights.

Just to the right of your headlight switch in the dash is your gauge panel dimmer control . Rotate the wheel up to brighten your dash lights . ( also , if turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights )

If the back dash light will light when the brakes are applied but the two tail lights will not light up, there is probably a short in the wiring somewhere. It could also be that the fuse for the brake lights is burned out.

Any light that stays on is not a "brake light", it's a "tail light". It's possible that they may be on at a lower level normally, and brighten when the brakes are applied, though.

Brake lights could stay on in a 1999 Dodge Stratus because of a short in the wiring. If the headlamps are off and the brake lights are still on, check the wiring for the brake lights that is inside the trunk. Sometimes cargo in the trunk can interfere with the lights.

The lights on the odometer on a 1999 Chevy Blazer might not work because of a burned out fuse. They might also not work if the lights are burned out.

I tried all the fuses, the parts that under the brakes I checked that. All lights come on and working except the brake lights no break lights.

If you do not have working tail lights on your GMC vehicle it may be an issue with the wiring or your lights may be burned out.

If you know where to change the odometer/tripmeter display... Instead of pushing that control, turn it counter-/clockwise to dim/brighten the dash lights.

Open the trunk. Access to the tail lights is from there.

Many taillight assemblies are equipped with bulbs with dual filaments, one for tail lights and one for brake lights. If you have one bulb with two filaments, then the problem you describe sounds like the brake light filament in the left bulb is burned out but the tail light filament is working.
