Chjeck the brake light switch located somewhere on the brake pedal lever.
You have an unidentifible service light on your dashboard The symbol is a car there are 3 little lines coming from each side of the back of the car There is not anything wrong with your brake lights?
Have you checked all the lights? Reverse lights, tail lights and brake lights?
It might be the brake lights. If it is, check the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal. It's right above the pedal and if it's slipped or adjusted wrong the light could stay on all the time. A brake light switch that is stuck like that can also prevent cruise control from working. On the other hand, if it's the WHITE light, it's probably the backup light switch that's stuck or adjusted bad… Read More

If the fuse is good and the bulbs are good what else can be wrong with the brake lights not working on a 2004 Passat?
It could be the brake light switch, usually mounted on the brake pedal.
Short circuit in either; The brake light wires, the brake lights themselves, the braking system if it is electrical assist, or other things. More important- WHAT FUSE IS IT?
Check the brake light switch. This can cause the brake lights to go out. There have been a couple of recalls on the 2001 for this exact problem. Contact your local VW dealer and have the switch replaced.
I tried all the fuses, the parts that under the brakes I checked that. All lights come on and working except the brake lights no break lights.
What is wrong if the brake lights in a 1999 Cavalier Z24 do not work but the tail lights directional hazard and center brake lights all do and the tail lamps have been replaced?
The problem points to the directional/lights and hazard switch. The brake light wiring is part of that circuit.You can buy the switch after market it is about $70.00.
Check the brake light switch. It's under the dash, connected to the brake pedal. If it's adjusted wrong or faulty, it could cause the brake lights to stay on. If you can use a meter and tell that the brake light switch is ok, next test the turn signal switch. Sometimes they short out and leave the brake lights on. You'll have to pull the steering wheel to do that.

What is wrong if you cant move the shifter and your brake lights fail to work when you press the brake?
There is either a burnt out fuse, or a problem with your brake light switch, located under the dash connected to brake peddle arm.
you may have your brake light socket and your back up light socket in the wrong holes. Or you have a short but that would probably leave you with a blown fuse and no lights.
What could be wrong with a 2000 Maxima GLE if the left brake light does not work when the car is in park but works when you step on brakes?
Break light bulb has two spirals in it - one for back lights and one for brake lights. Replace the bulb. By the way, this is not a Maxima specific question
Why does the brake light on the integra not light up when you turn on the light but it light up when you brake?
The Integra uses a dual-filament bulb in the tail light, which has one contact for the running light (the lights you turn on at night) and another brighter one for the brake light (only goes on when you press the brake pedal). You have replaced the bulb with the wrong type. You will need a 2057 bulb for the Integra.
What is wrong when the rear lights of 02 Chrysler town and countrywon't shut off unless you pull the brake light fuse?
Brake Lights "Stuck" ON Usually this is caused by the brake light switch position NOT being adjusted properly. Another possibility is that the brake pedal is NOT returning fully to the retracted position. Another possibility is that the brake light switch internal contacts have become stuck together [welded from heat buildup.
Brake lights often use a dual-filament bulb. If this gets inserted the wrong way other functions can suffer.
Your brake lights on your 1995 Altima do not work All of the bulbs look fine What could be wrong and how can you fix it?

What could cause brake lights to remain on when the headlights are on and the dashboard light and parking lights when they are off on a 1999 Hyundai?
make sure your brake bulbs are in right way round. There is offset poles on a stop/tail bulb so they go in correctly but they can be forced in wrong way round activating the brake light side instead of the sidelight.
You have a 1998 Ford Contour and all your brake lights went out except for your rear window light The bulb and fuses seem good can anyone think of anything else that could be wrong?
YES, wiring. Almost ALL vehicles that have a 3rd stoplight on the windows use the 3rd light as the main brake feed for the other 2 regular brake lights. so if your regular stop lights go bad but the 3rd one still works the most likely problem is going to be on the wire coming down from the 3rd light to feed the regular lights. use a test light or a vom/multimeter to determine if… Read More
What is wrong on a 96 Chevy pickup when brake lights stay on when driving but when you push on the brakes the lights come off?
I would first check your brake light switch which is attached to your brake pedal under the dash. Since you can turn off the lights by pushing the pedal it is possible the switch is bad. They are around $10.00.I hope this helps you. Mark
What might be wrong if one brake light won't turn on for the brakes but will flash with the blinker?
the bulb for brake and signal lights has two elements. in your case the element for brakes is open and you will have to replace bulb.
If you have recently replaced the taillight/brakelight bulbs... you may have installed the wrong type. This will cause the circuit to cross and light up both filaments, which would look like a brake light.
How can i fix a 1999 Pontiac sunfire that the tail lights and brake lights are not working but daytime runners and back window brake light works what is wrong?
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference… Read More
Why would my 97 mercury villager brake lights not work but dash and tail light come on when braking?
I would check the rear bulbs. I just had this issue and it ended up my brother had used the wrong bulb, and odd enough it caused the brake lights to stay on with headlights. When headlights were not on and you applied the brakes the dash would light and brake lights worked. Strange, HUH? I must admit before this revelation, I replaced headlight switch and brake switch, with no avail.
What could be wrong with a 2003 Chevy pickup when the brake light works on the cab but not at the tail light lens and the brake light stays lit on the passenger side if the running lights are on?
The bulbs and or sockets are dirty/corroded and need either cleaned or replaced. The corrosion causes the light to not have a good ground contact, therefore the circuit's power is finding it's way through other systems.
What would you guess is wrong if your brake and reverse lights on the drivers side dim when applying the brake and reverse but tail light works fine on a 97 dodge Dakota?
i do not confess to know about dodge Dakota (English) but the most common problem for dimming rear lights when the brake is applied is a poor earth to the rear light assembly, the earth connection works fine for rear lights but overloads when brake lights used. check the connection of the earth to the light unit and if necessary remove and clean the both ends of the earth wire. Answer you have an earth… Read More
Whats wrong when all the lights work except the brake lights and the fuses and bulbs are good and the outside cab brake light works?
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.
Maybe it is not connected properly or you bought the wrong type of bulb.
I have a 84 Chevy Celebrity and my brake lights have stopped working All other lights work just fine I have checked the bulbs and the fuses What is wrong?

What could be wrong with your car if the brake lights work when the lights are off but when the lights are turned on the passenger side tail lights and brake lights completely go out?
This is usually a grounding problem. Either an insufficient ground to the assy or a positive to ground problem. As you mention the brake lights work with the lights off, it will probably be related to a problem with the "running lights" system. As you mention only a problem with the passenger rear, I would check for a poor ground related to that light assy or possibly one of the bulbs' internal filaments in that… Read More
What is wrong if the brake lights in a 2000 Cavalier Z24 do not work but the tail lights directional hazard and center brake lights all do and the tail lamps have been replaced?
Check the brake switch at the pedal.
whats wrong with them??
Why would 2 of 3 brake lights on your 1996 Hyundai Accent stay on even when car is off and parking brake is not engaged?
After replacing a brake light bulb I found that when you put the headlights on all the brake lights come on as well. Did this happen to you? Does any body know where I went wrong? You have either fitted the wrong bulb, or you have got the correct bulb incorrectly fitted, check to see if the front sidelights illuminate when applying the brakes (obviously with the lights switched off)....recheck the bulb and fitting :)
What is wrong if the stoplights don't work but the tail lights and rear signal lights work and the stop light light bulbs have been replaced and the fuses checked?

What is wrong if your 95 Tacoma dash lights and tail lights are out and there is no power going to the fuse for dash lights and you heard a click when you were fixing a moonvisor light then they went out?
I have that same problem with a 2001 tacoma no power rear tail lights brake light works and nothing for dash lights i need answers i am stumped Any real answers to this please???
sometimes its because somebody put in a light bulb wrong & is back feeding the system.
You've got something wrong with your wiring, causing current to jump from the indicator circuit over into the brake light circuit.
Why would the brake lights on a 96 Altima not stay on when the headlights are on and only work when using the brakes?
Your brakelights are only supposed to come on when using the brakes. Do you mean that your TAIL LIGHTS don't work? Hey Jose==Your TAIL lights may have a fuse blown or something could be wrong with the head light switch. You just have to check it out. GoodluckJoe The tail light bulb has two filaments in it. One for the tail light and one for the brake light. The brake light part is still… Read More
What is wrong when the brake lights seem to work sometimes and not other times in a 1995 Chevy lumina?
Its most likely the brake switch. Its a plunger like switch on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change.
It is important to pay attention to the warning lights on the dashboard. When the ABS and brake lights flask that means there is something wrong with the brake system.
