Hi! I have the same problem on my 1992 econoline. Both turn signals/Hazard switch and middle rear break light do not function. while pushing he hazard switch often in a row, sometimes the flashers return...? I thought hazard and turn signals had a separate relais...? That makes me wonder if this could be a ground problem...? Do you have fixed the problem yet? please let me know. Thx, Axel from Germany We had the exact same problem, if your center brake light DID work during this scenario. If so, the problem is the Hazard Switch on top of the steering column. You might be able to make it work temporarily by pushing the hazzard switch to one side and testing it, and if that doesn't work, try pushing it to the other side, etc. The switch is going bad, so you'll have to replace it, and this supposedly involves removing the steering column. We'll have to find out since we just discovered this today. I had the exact same problem. I tried every fuse and bulb with no change. Removed steering column and key assembly. Made sure all connections were tight and somehow after weeks of nothing, everything started working. I am going to replace the directional/hazard assembly - should everything stop working again.
if turn signals are working , and brake lights not working, i would replace the stop light switch on the brake pedal
How do you replace brake lights
Brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit from the tail lights. Tail lights are on the same circuit with the dashboard lights. If the dashboard lights aren't working either, check the fuse. If they ARE working, check the headlight switch.
turn signal switch needs replaced!
Could be the brake light switch or fuse.
The brake lights in your 1983 Nissan pickup truck are controlled by the brake light relay switch. When the brake light relay switch malfunctions the brake lights will stop working.
change the fuse if not replace flasher
Your brake lights are out too! Replace the fuse.
Check the fuses and the bulbs.
check the brake light relay under the hood
in dash lights
im not familair with that make of vehicle but. the brake lights anf the signals are supposed to be separte. they both plug into a harness near the back of the vehicle. if your brake lights are working with your signals, you might have something crossed. take it to an expert you trusst and let them check it out.
A bad ground wire is the most common cause of turn signals and brake lights not working. The ground wire connection might be corroded.
Check the bulbs - they are doubloe filamented with the smaller being for brake/turn signals Check the fuses
AnswerThe bulbs for the brake lights are usually separate from the normal tail light bulbs. Check and replace the brake bulbs first, and if they are still not working examine the fuses, switch and wiring.
replace brake light switch located on brake pedal under dash
Brake lights often use a dual-filament bulb. If this gets inserted the wrong way other functions can suffer.
If the speedometer and brake lights aren't working then you should change the fuse. If that doesn't work then check the electrical system associated with your Heritage.
Yes. I have found the schematic in the back of most "Haynes" manuals.
we are having back brakes problems
You may have blown a fuse. You may have to replace your brake light switch which is located above the brake pedal under the dash. Also it could be your emergency flasher knob if its broken. All of your turn signals and break lights run through it and if the connections on it are off none of the brake lights and turn signals will work.
possibly the fuse for brake lights......also could be brake light switch----turn signal switch----broken wiring anywhere in the vehicle---relay not working ---any other item specific to your venicle.
Sounds like it's not your bulb that is bad. It may be your brake switch isn't working.
The only thing common to all those lights (but not to the center brake light) is the hazard switch. I'd check that next. On my 96 Century the hazards override the signals and brake lights meaning that the signals and brake lights must be wired into the hazard switch somehow.
There is a switch under brake pedal. This switch controls the brake lights. They some times go bad. Have someone stand behind vehicle while you push on brake pedal, if no brake lights come on. Try pushing the brake switch by hand. Check for power with a voltmeter.
