If you are referring to the brake light then the brake light switch is stuck.
the brake lamps, smart one the brake lamps, smart one
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...
I'm assuming that one of your brake light bulbs is not working
Mini-fuse #23 15amp located side instrument panel inside of passenger door . Actual name is- Stop Lamps.
Changing the lamps is pretty straight forward. There is a cover over the lamp assembly, remove it. Then, turn the tail lamp (with the connector) counter clockwise about 1/4 turn. Pull the assembly forward, then replace the lamp. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this helps.
Loose bulb or loose connection.
I'm assuming that one of your brake lights is not working , if this is a message being displayed in your Explorer
A. Legislation in many countries require vehicles to have brake lamps. B. Your foot is on the brake pedal. C. There is a fault in the circuit
Blade Type ATO/ATC Automotive Fuses: 10A for the turn signal lamps & 15A for the Brake/Hazard Lamps. Hope that helps.
Check the bulbs sounds like they have been put in backwards Double filamented smaller is for brake lamps larger is for tail lamps
FYI - I had a bad alternator. Apparently, a failed alternator may/can/will cause the battery AND brake warning lamps to come on. Alternator has been replaced, and all warning lamps cleared.
See Tail Lamps, Turn Signal, Stop Lamps and Sidemarker Lamps on page 5-57 of your "Owner's Manual", under Section 5: Service and Appearance Care - Bulb Replacement...
tighten brake switch located on top of brake pedal under dash adjust so lamps are out and come on with light pressure on pedal.
first thing,check your brake lamps,if the lower brake lamps do not work the car will not come out of park because of a safety feature that requires you to press the brake pedal to shift out of park. the stop lamps provide the power to release the shifter,if this is the case you just need to fix your brak lamps,most vehicle have a featue to enable you to release shifter in emergencies.try turning the key to unlock without turning the dash lamps on then shift to nuetral and start the vehicle,if this doesnt work there should be a plugged off slot by the shifter that you can insert a key to release it
Check the brake switch at the pedal.
when high beams are turned on low beams go out u need to look at the wires and connetors 4 the high beams are not working on that side good luck
could very well be brake switch on back of brake pedal. it is located at the top back off pedal, or it could be out of adjustment. check and see if power to back lamps, if not check brake switch.
Last time I ran into this problem, the wires attached to the brake light switch connector on the brake pedal were broken (the insulation looked good but when wiggled there was an obvious fault). I spliced the wires back together and the brake lamps worked! Hope this helps, Radioman
Lift the E-brake one click
No. The two circuits are not normally connected.
it's probably the brake light switch. in front of the brake padle. have you check the brake switch. their not very expensive. at auto zone
no u dont have to change the brakes.you just have to check your brake lamps,u may have one blown out,loose, or just needs replacing.step on brakes n check which one is bad.
Check to see if Brake lamps work when brake pedal is pressed. If not gear shifter is locked for safety so replace fuse or repair brake lamp switch.
Depends on what exactly is going on. That era Malibu had a hazard lamp switch that would commonly fail. This would cause the turn signals to no longer flash. Also, multi-function switch failures are common. The brake lamps go through this switch and if the switch fails, sometimes the brake lamps won't light. Another possibility (if it's brake lamps only) is the brake pedal switch. This switch tends to build resistance from carbon tracking due to arcing.If you really are talking about the taillights (the less-bright lamps that come on with the headlamps), you could have a bad fuse, bad bulbs, bad headlamp switch or any combination of the above.
