the brake light switch on the brake peda is by far the most likely cause ---but it would be nice to know which vehicle your talking aboutA Bad or Broken Brake light switch would be my first guess. Most brake light switches are mounted under the dash to the brake pedal however some cars have another switch there also to prevent you from starting the car until the brake pedal is pressed don't confuse the two.

check the break lignt senser located next to your break pedal

On my 97 Chevy Blazer, the taillights work, hazards work, turn signals worked, but my two main brake lights didn't, the high mounted center l.e.d. brake light up top worked and my trailer hitch brake light worked but the other 2 didn't. My emergency hazard switch broke off, in it, Chevy has that multifunction switch that controls the brake lights, wipers, turn signals, all of that... there is a connector on that hazard light switch that when pushed or put in it's original place, makes contact on 2 of the lines inside it, i jimmy rigged mine with a screw to hold it in the place it was suppose to be at.... I need to replace that whole switch, it's called the cruise control assembly at autozone, but two hundred dollars is the price and I'm not paying it...

Try the "WD40" trick on the Hazard Switch. Use a can with the red straw nozzle and just shoot a little into the area around your hazard switch, then move it up and down, on/off--just generally wiggle it a little bit. On many vehicles (especially FORDS, but others as well) this will allow the switch to fully disengage and return brake lights and turn signals to functionality.

Check the fuses first then check the bulbs.

What could cause my 1989 Mercury Topaz's brake lights to not work when all the bulbs are good?

A defective brake light switch could cause the problem. Also a defective turn signal switch could also. The brake lights work through the turn signals. It cancels the brake light so that the turn signal can work.

Probably the wrong bulbs or the brake lights are getting stuck "on". Or maybe a combination of the two. Check that you have the right bulbs and check to make sure something isn't keeping the brake lights on. FriPilot

Check all the fuses. If not bulbs or switch that's all that it can be,


Your top brake light works but your bottom 2 dont checked all the bulbs and fuses There fine What could it be?

Check turn signal switch. Pull back lighty on turn signal lever and brake lights will come on. Replace switch inside steering column. The green and yellow wires you see at the bulbs are the ones that control the brake lights and turn signals.
