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.

What would cause the Brake lights on a 2000 s10 to not work at all Turn signals work Tail lights work Reverse lights work but none of the 3 brake lights work.?

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.)


Why does tilt steering affect turn signals and brake lights on 02 ford ranger?

The turn signal wiring goes up the steering column. Turn signal bulbs are also used as brake lights and the brake light signal goes through the turn signal switch. If there is a loose connection or worn wire in the steering column, the tilt would cause problems.

A loose or corroded ground wire will cause the fuse to blow. Check the ground wires on your brake lights.


Where the brake light relay is on a 2000 mercury cougar or why the brake lights wont work the fuses and lights are good?

Check the brake light switch first. It is usually near the brake pedal under the dash. A bad turn signal switch can also cause this if the brake lights are also turn signal lights. If the brake lights are independent of the turn signals then disregard the switch problem. A good wiring diagram will help to diagnose the problem also. Check with dealership mechanics as they have access to diagrams.
