Could B a BRAKE light switch or a Turn signal harness I had one where a "Fuseable Link" had blown and another where a defective "Fuse Block" was the culprit. I just jumpered a wire from a hot connection on the Fuse Block to the dead section of the Fuse Block and all was well. I would only attempt this if you are familar with wiring and soldering and of course electricity lol ;-) TommyTrouble
brake light switch is above the brake pedal under the dash
Check the wire which is going inside of the trunk hood to the brake lights.
check the brake light switch on the brake pedal
try adjusting switch above brake pedal
It needs checked out but both the hazard and brake lights go through the turn signal switch.
First check if bulbs and fuses are good and see if the back lights come on when you turn on the lights. If everything works and the bulbs and fuses are good then its most likely the brake switch on your brake pedal, its usually the only thing wired to the brake pedal. If its not that you might have a short somewhere but usually its either fuses or the brake switch, both are cheap and easy to change.
Check the fuses and if they are good then check the brake light switch.
It could be the brake light switch (the switch that activates the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal) has gone bad
If all the fuses are good, then most likely the brake light switch right on the brake pedal inside the car. Check that.
Please check the Brake light switch....The brake light switch should be located near or on the brake pedal (up on the stem of the brake pedal)
try brake switch under pedal
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
Panel lights and parking/tail lights should be on 1 circuit Brake lights should be on a separate circuit If you are sure fuses are good- Check bulbs Check headlight switch Check stoplight switch
If all the fuses and bulbs are new and work properly, the lights could be malfunctioning due to a short in the wiring. The wiring may also be damaged or burned out in places.
check wire continuity- no power no lights
A bad brake light switch or a bad headlight switch, or the power source of the fuse has a problem or break in the wire (circuit).
You need new bulbs
Check Flasher and/or switch
brake relay or sensor
If you are referring to the brake lights it is probably a bad brake light switch. Your vehicle may also have daytime running lights which would be on without the parking lights.
98 sierra1500 4x4 all lights work excepttail lights fuses are good bulbs are new
what will make the brake light not work on a 1996 dodge dakota? fuses are good and bulbs are good
a crappy car. my 99 beetle has the same problem. brake light switch new, bulbs and fuses new. brake lights just work whenever the heck they want. this is one of the many reasons my car has a for sale sign in the window. good luck.
