It is either fuse related or the lights don't have a ground.

With most vehicles there is a separate fuse for each function. But one thing they do have in common is they all pass through the signal light switch in many vehicles. Then again we don't know what the vehicle is. Post more info.

Your problem very well could be the hazard switch. i have a 1994 honda civic too i found whenever i disconnected the hazard switch from the wiring harness my turn signals brake lights and of course hazards do not work. Maybe replace the hazard switch..

The problem points to the directional/lights and hazard switch. The brake light wiring is part of that circuit.You can buy the switch after market it is about $70.00.

The only thing common to all those lights (but not to the center brake light) is the hazard switch. I'd check that next. On my 96 Century the hazards override the signals and brake lights meaning that the signals and brake lights must be wired into the hazard switch somehow.

I am having the same trouble. My brake lights work with the light switch for nighttime driving, but only far right brake light works when i pres brake pedal. Reverse lights dont work at all. Turn signals and hazard light work.

possibly the fuse for brake lights......also could be brake light switch----turn signal switch----broken wiring anywhere in the vehicle---relay not working ---any other item specific to your venicle.

The flasher unit is placed in back of the fuse panel. Look towards the left side for its exact position.

It needs checked out but both the hazard and brake lights go through the turn signal switch.

The turn signal switch overrides the brake light circuit while the turn signals are on. If the switch is damaged or worn out the brake lights won't work.

Check fuse Check stop light switch - usually located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

there was a recall on the hazard light switch that caused the rear brake lights (minus the high mount 3rd light) to stay on. the hazard lights and turn signals still worked. there was only an electrical malfuntion in the hazard lamp switch on the steering column. go to your nearest dealer, they will fix it for free and it only takes about 1/2 hour

Underhood Minifuses control the items in question. Fuses should be labeled, but if not you're on your own. BRAKE (Blue 15a) control brake lampls; HAZARD (Red 10a) controls Hazard Flasher, Inst Pnl, Turn Signals, Park/Turn lts and Rear Tail lts

It looks like the brake lights / turn signals have one of the fuses in common : In the fuse panel located under and to the left of the steering wheel , by the brake pedal , FUSE # 13 - 20 amp - for STOP LAMP SWITCH ( LAMPS ) , TURN / HAZARD FLASHER , and speed control module

if you mean: "why do hazard lights flash when brakes are on", then the answer is because vehicles are equipped with a hazard light relay that supercedes the brake lights. This way, slow moving vehicles can operate under hazard lighting.
