It could be the ground wire, the brake light switch, a damaged wire or connector or the turn signal switch.

Try replacing the hazard flasher. If that does not work, double-check to see that you have the proper bulbs and fuses installed for the brake lamp circuit.


No tail lights all other lights working changed bulbs and checked fuses still nothing?

I had this same problem. If the bulbs and the fuses are good its most likely the brake switch. Its a plunger like switch on the brake pedal. Its usually the only thing on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change. I would start there.

Your brake lights on your 2002 Acura RSX arent working but your tail lights are?

The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.


What should you do if the brake lights keep going out on your 1992 Chevy Cavalier?

Are you blowing fuses or are the bulbs blowing? Blowing fuses would be a sign of any wires or metal contacts in your brake circuit grounding out or shorting on themselves. You'll have to check all of the wiring in your brake light/switch circuit to be sure.

Your brake lights are not working in a 1992 Toyota celica and the fuses globes and brake pedal switch are fine what else can it be?
