Best Answer

A couple things to check: In general on most cars, the stop light circuit goes through the turn signal switch. When the turn signal is off, the circuit goes directly to the stop-light. When the turn signal is on the circuit is interrupted temporarily and the turn signal circuit operates that side of the stop light bulb. It might be a good idea to check the turn signal circuit to see if anything has been damaged in or around the turn signal switch. I would also check the stop light switch. In some vehicles the switch is mounted under the dash, on the brake pedal pivot arm. These occasionally need adjustment. If the switch is not there it is sometimes on the master cylinder. Check there for a damaged connector or a faulty switch.

Your brake lights on your 2002 Acura RSX arent working but your tail lights are?

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.
