The BOO (Brake On/Off) Switch may need to be replaced. If it is bad, it would cause the brake lights to NOT illuminate when the brake pedal is applied.

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 LightsI'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. This is confirmed by the fact you replaced the lamps [bulbs] in those other lamp holders with known good lamps.There could be several causes for an open circuit, but the most common include:One of the connector plugs in the wiring harness to the brake lights has become disconnected, orCorrosion has built up inside of one of the connectors [one that feeds both brake lights, which will be in the circuit "ahead" [upstream] of where the wiring harness "splits" off between the two brake lights].Very remote is the possibility that the ground wires on both light assemblies has been disconnected, cut, or corroded.

Which driver is at fault if a vehicle was rear ended with only one of three brake lights working and no insurance?

The presumption is that if you were rear ended, the other driver is at fault. The brake lights not working is a mitigating factor, but the bulk of the blame still goes with the other driver. Insurance doesn't have any relation to fault. But it coculd get you a ticket.

It probably indicates that both your other brake lights are burned out and need replacing. BTW: It is illegal in most (if not all) jurisdictions to drive this way.


Tahoe 2002 no brake lights?

If your brakes lights are not working and all of your other lights are OK try replacing your "brake stop switch". You may have to have either your local auto shop or local dealer replace the switch because it's hard to do yourself. I had the same problem on my Tahoe and replacing the brake stop switch solved it right away.


How do you fix the tail lights remaining on after the car is shut down and the rear window brake light not working on a 1994 Toyota Tercel?

If it is the tail lights, it is the headlight switch. If it is the brake lights, it is probably the brake light switch. I really don't know how to replace the bulb in the 3rd light. change the brake light bulb first it may be shorted causeing the other problem


Why would a 88 Chevy truck have rear running lights working but brake lights and rear turn signal lights not working?

Brake Lights Don't WorkThe brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit of their of their own and thus independent of the tail lights and side marker lights ["running"] lights.There could be several causes for this problem, and without being able to see and troubleshoot the brake light wiring circuit no one can tell you the specific cause.Some of the possible causes include:Brake light switch is not adjusted properly.The fuse for that circuit is "blown" out.A wiring harness connector anywhere in that circuit has become unplugged, or loose.The ground wire or wires for that circuit have become disconnected, or the connection of the ground wires to the vehicle's grounded body sheet metal has been blocked by corrosion.A wire in the circuit has been cut, broken, or pulled loose.The brake light switch has become defective.There are probably a few other causes I have forgotten about.


What if your brake lights work but not the tail lights?

Look for a fuse labeled TAIL LIGHTS. There are 2 separate circuits, one for brake turn and flasher and the other is for tail lights.


Why would you have no brake lights but all the other lights work?

Blown fuse or bad brake light switch?


Who is at fault if you rear end a car whose turn signals and brake lights were not working?

The one who hits the other in the rear end is at fault, no matter if the person in front of them has working lights are not, because by law they will say you were following to close and should of had enough distance between you and the other car to avoid the collision.


Why do my brake lights and cruise control not work on 2001 ford explorer sport even though all other lights work?

The brake lights are a separate circuit from the other lights. Check the fuses and bulbs. If fuses and bulbs are okay I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault.


No tail lights all other lights working changed bulbs and checked fuses still nothing?

I had this same problem. If the bulbs and the fuses are good its most likely the brake switch. Its a plunger like switch on the brake pedal. Its usually the only thing on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change. I would start there.


What is wrong when 1 brake light is out but the tail light and other brake lights work good?

The bulb is burnt out. If the problem was a fuse, then all brake lights and probably the dashboard lights would be out as well.
