One of the brake lights is busted changed it. now there all busted. why is that?
If by "busted" you mean "not working" then you most likely have a wire that is shorting out. Trace all the wires and check them for bare spots. A wire could be "grounding out" and causing fuses to blow.
Depending on the year, there may be one fuse for all three brake lights, or two fuses, one for the highmount brake light and one fuse for the two lower brake lights/tail lights. So, if all three brake lights are out, it could be just one fuse or perhaps the brake light switch which is on the brake pedal metal arm assembly.
Your trailer tailights are dual-filament, with one being the running lights and the other the brake lights. You need a separate power source from your towing vehicle's brake lights to power them. The easiest way to do this is go to U-Haul and but a set of their trailer towing taillight bulbs for your towing vehicle. The bulbs replace your standard tail/brake light bulbs, and they have two wires coming out of the base of…

What fuse controls the brake lights on a 1984 Chevy camero all lights work except no brake lights when the brake pedal is pushed?
Why is it your brake lights and side lights come on when you brake with out the ignition on on a Honda accord?
You do not need the key in the ignition to make lights work. They are "hot" all the time. The reason you Sid marker lights are coming on at the same time is because you have a bad ground in one of your brake lights. It's allowing electricity to jump from the brake lights to the tail light circuit. Take the brake lights apart, clean up all the rust and make sure they "ground" to…
My 98 Monte Carlo brake lights don't work when i hit the brake but the top one behind the glass works?
Why left side brake light doesn't work when I step on the brake but works when the head light is on?
If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?
There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so…
Brake lights on a 2002 Gran Prix not working but the the one in the back glass is you replaced bulbs but the brake lights still do not work Would it be the brake light switch?
Nonfunctional Lights I'm not familiar with your 2002 Gran Prix, but the problem you describe is universal to all vehicles. The fact that the "third" brake light [in the rear window package tray] IS WORKING, indicates that the brake light switch IS WORKING properly!!!!! That suggests that the reason that the other two brake lights are not working is that there is an "open" condition in the wiring circuit to the other two brake lights…
Why would the brake lights on your 1994 Corvette not function except the center high one which works fine?
Answer Try checking your fuse for your tail lights in your fuse box if that doesnt work try check for a short in your wiring Answer I noticed on my 1990 did the same. Also found out it only happens when the TILT wheel is completely down. Try lifting the tilt wheel up and down with someone watching your brake lights. Have not pinned down the source in the column yet, but will keep looking…
Inside the trunk behind where the brake lights are are a plastic cover. Remove that and you will see one bolt. Reach in to the far side of the light and you will find the second bolt. Remove those and the brake lights can be pulled out. Now just twist the bulb holders and there are your brake light bulbs.
2000 odyssey brake and rear lights not working and will not go into gear also cruise and horn will not work. Can anyone help?
Check the fuse first, then the brake bulbs. When you press the brake, it senses the brake lights and let's you take it out of park. This happened to me - 2 brake lights burnt at the same time with one already gone, and I couldn't get it in gear. I replaced the bulbs, touched the brake pedal and she went into gear no problem.
On a 1990 olds 98 the problem is no brake lights or taillights i do have headlights and turn signals thanks?
When my running lights are working on my trailer my turn signal lights and brake lights don't work but if running lights are off turn signal and brake lights work?
By the nature of the question I assume that you are referring to the tail lights and brake lights. My Explorer has four bulbs. Tail, brake turn and backup. They are all in separate compartments of the light assembly. So it could be that you have just burned out one bulb. If you are referring to the upper brake light in the rear window or at the top of the tailgate, same thing. One or…
I had this problem and it was a short in one of the back rear brake lights. One of the bulbs was not screwed in correctly and it was causing the brake light to stay on when the headligst are on. We removed all bulbs and inserted them again, making sure they were tight. This fixed our issue with a dodge 2003 durango.
What is the problem when head lights are on and the tail lights dont work but the brake lights work?
If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires. Another cause for this could be that the tail light bulbs are burned out. Most vehicles have more than one bulb inside the tail lights to control different lights at the same time.
