Something you may not realise is that the brake light bulb is often one bulb with two elements. One of the elements will be for the brake and the other will be for the tail lighting for example so,when tested, the actual bulb will still light up because the second element is unaffected. Make sure that the 'blown' bulb that you are actually changing is not in fact your fog lamp. This will not automatically light up when you test your lights as you have to operate this light separately (similarly to indicator lights). So the fog lamp bulb will appear to be the only one not lit up when you test your lights. Find the bulb with two elements inside and change that one. Sounds obvious (and may be obvious to many) but it's a common mistake. Hope this helps!.
The same thing happened to me. It's the brake lights switch either under or over the brake pedal. The same thing happened to me. It's the brake lights switch either under or over the brake pedal.
Adjust or replace the brake light switch.
Defective or misaligned brake light switch.
It may be a defective brake light switch. The location of the brake lights fuse is listed in your owner's manual.
The brake light switch is stuck or out of adjustment. If it is a mechanical switch it is located somewhere on the brake pedal swing arm. If it is a pressure switch it is located near the Master Cylinder.
if it isn't a fuse or lamp problem, check the brake lamp switch on the brake pedal, if you unplug the switch, and jumper the connection, and you have brake lamps, replace the switch...
Defective or out of adjustment brake light switch.
Then the brake lights are out but the middle one still lights up. (:
check for blown brake light bulbs and broken wires. also check brake light switch on brake pedal
Assuming you have the lights turned off, you are seeing the brake lights. They are more than likely on because the brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment.
check the bulb if not blown wiggle the hazzad switch brakes run through the hazzad switch just try it not positive
The brake pedal switch is bad. How do I replace it?
Go to dealership and buy a plastic piece that goes on the brake pedal to turn the switch on and off. This little plastic snaps into place. The insert breaks after years of use and can easily be replaced by holding the brake pedal down and push it into place.
the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.
Check the switch on the brake pedal
this happened to me on my 98 Honda accord and it was because my brake lights and sinal lights were not working properlyMost likely, the brake light switch is stuck. Have you checked your brake fluid level? You could be dangerously low.If you mean that your exterior brake lights stay on even when you aren't pressing on the brake pedal, you most likely have a bad brake light switch.If you follow your brake pedal arm up under the dash, you should see a switch that comes in contact with the arm. It might have been knocked out of position and all you need to do is put it back. If it is in its correct position, it is probably bad and will need to be replaced.It works like this...when you press on the brake pedal, the arm moves away from the switch, thus turning on your brake lights. When you release your foot from the brake pedal, it contacts the switch and your brake lights turn off.
The brake lights on a 96 Jimmy are operated by the brake light switch, mounted on the brake pedal assembly. If the switch is bad the lights could stay on or off, or be sporadic.
Probably a brake light switch.
brake switch ???
Brake Lights "Stuck" ONUsually that is caused by the brake light switch becoming "out of adjustment," but sometimes it can be caused by a defective brake light switch.
Blown fuse Bad stop light switch Burned out bulbs
It depends on the exact problem. If it's that both brake lights in the back do not work and the middle one works, it could be your turn signal switch.
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 I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch
If the fuses and bulbs are okay I would blame the signal switch assembly. They call it a multi-function switch these days.
Nonfunctional Brake LightsOne possible cause of this issue is that the brake light switch is not adjusted properly, or the switch could be defective.
