THIS COULD BE A BAD WIRE OR ALSO A BAD CONNECTION FROM COROSION INSIDE THE SOCKET THAT THE BULB FITS INTO. CHECK IT OUT FIRST AND CLEAN ANY THAT IS THERE BY GENTLY SCRATCHING IT OFF. ONE OF THE SOCKETS MIGHT ALSO BE BAD AND THAT MAY KEEP BOTH BREAK LIGHTS FROM WORKING. ALSO DO RESEARCH ONLINE AND YOU MAKE FIND OTHER THINGS THAT WOULD CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN. GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE I WAS ABLE TO HELP A LIL BIT. JEAN
AnswerThe bulbs for the brake lights are usually separate from the normal tail light bulbs. Check and replace the brake bulbs first, and if they are still not working examine the fuses, switch and wiring.
Check bulbs, fuses and brake switch in that order.
Possible bad switch on the brake pedal? When you push on the brake pedal, it activates a switch, that switch turns on your brake lights. If the bulbs and fuses are ok, check the switch with an ohmeter.
you do not adjust the brake lights check the bulbs or check switch top of brake pedal.
Type your answer here... Why are you wanting to rewire the brake lights?
Bad bulbs or brake light switch.
Check the fuse, the bulbs, and the brake light switch.
Check all the fuses. If not bulbs or switch that's all that it can be,
The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.
If the fuses and bulbs are okay I would blame the signal switch assembly. They call it a multi-function switch these days.
Check the bulbs, the fuse and the brake light switch.
Check the bulbs, the fuse then the brake light switch.
fuse, bulbs, switch on brake pedal.
Check the brake light fuse, the bulbs, the brake light switch and last, check the signal switch.
check wiring, check bulbs, check fuse, check brake light switch,
Bulbs blown/Brake lamp switch inoperative
it maybe the brake switch
i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs
check that you have double filament bulbs in tail lights
If the bulbs and fuses are fine, it must be your brake light switch attached to the arm on your brake pedal.
check your bulbs
Brake light switch on the brake pedal is defective
Either all brake light bulbs are bad, and yes it is common for all the bulbs to fail with in a day or two. Or the signal light switch has an internal problem.
Please check the Brake light switch....The brake light switch should be located near or on the brake pedal (up on the stem of the brake pedal)
