Check the stop light switch - usually located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area
check the bulb again, are BOTH filaments good
faulty brake light switch (on pedal)
i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs
Working brake lights are important for safety reasons while driving. It is important to check all of the wiring, if the brake lights are not working and the fuses and bulbs have been checked.
Check sockets and grounds
use BMW bulbs and parts
Yes, or a bad brake switch, a wiring problem, or bad bulbs.
AnswerThe bulbs for the brake lights are usually separate from the normal tail light bulbs. Check and replace the brake bulbs first, and if they are still not working examine the fuses, switch and wiring.
How about a malfunctioning brake light switch
on some cars the tail lights and brake lights are totally different bulbs gain access to the bulbs and have someone push the brakes so that you can determine which bulbs are the brake lights and replace the tail lights
mines dun this it was wen a replaced the rear brake lights it was dogy bulbs put new wans in n it was sorted
I hate to ask , but did you check the bulbs ? The tail light portion may work fine , but the brake lights don't if both of the bulbs are bad .
Check the switch at the brake pedal .
Check the bulbs,if not the bulbs you most likely have a bad ground.
I just had my Daewoo Leganza brake light switch replaced. It goes under the brake pedal. and now my brake lights work fine.
Possibly bad brake light switch, or broken/disconnected wiring.
its on different bulbs
check wire continuity- no power no lights
check the wires at brake light switch on brake pedal they are bad about breaking brake light switch
Likely to be the brake light switch on the pedal at fault if the bulbs and fuses are good and other lights work ok.
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.
There might be a separate fuse for the lower brake lights ( just a guess )
Check the brake light fuse. If you have 12 volts at the brake light switch I would suspect the signal light switch is at fault.
