Replace the fuses if they go out its a short. Good luck finding that
ummm... your brake lights should ALWAYS work whether your headlights are on or not, that's how people behind you know you are stopping.
my back brake lights don't work, but the brake light on the back door does what could be wrong
Fuse 7 controls the brake lights. It should be a red 10amp fuse.
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)
If the bulb will not work the fuses under the dash should be checked. When these fuse fail the brake lights will not turn on.
The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.
The most likely cause is a bad brake light switch (if none of the brake lights illuminate) but if its only one of the brake lights, try changing the bulb. Even if they still work as running or turn lights because they have a double filament and may still work partially, but not as brake lights.
change the brake lights check the fuse check the brake light swtch
check the fuse for the brake lights, they have thier own. also check the brake light switch at the at the top of the brake petal
After fuse (should be labeled) Try bulbs and defective stop light switch
How do you replace brake lights
BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AT TOP OF BRAKE PEDAL
brake switch ???
its on different bulbs
Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.
You probably need to replace your brake light switch. It's near the top of the brake assembly, beyond a trim panel. The fact that all three brake lights don't work rules out problems in the multifunction switch (the cause of similar problems affecting only the two rear lights.)
Blinkers can work without brake lights. Brake lights are activated by a switch that is switched by the brake petal and the turn signals are acivated by your turn signal switch on your steering column. The two are two separate circuits. I suggest you check out the switch on your brake pedal to see if it is working properly. It must have 12 volts applied to one side when it is not acitvated and 12 volts should be on both sides when it is activated. When the 12 volts is on both sides of the brake switch, it should apply 12 volts to your brake lights and then they should come on.
on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that
Are you saying your tail lights themselves do not work and only the brake lights work. If that is the case, check the fuse, and then check the tail light bulbs.
check the fuse, brake lights have their own, & check the brake switch at the top of the brake pedal
Check for a brake light fuse
The tail lights and the stop lights work off of different circuits. The stop lights work when the brake pedal is depressed while the tail lights work when the light switch is turned on. Look for a burnt fuse or a bad connection.
