Signals fast in the front and inoperative in the rear is an indication of an inoperative (or burned out) brake lamp. Check the rear brake/tail/bu light wiring harness, for it is probably disconnected. This harness is located just inside the rear bumper (or behind the trailer hitch if you have one). You may find two connectors. Also check the bulbs themselves. I used cheapo wire taps from Radio Shack to attach a custom trailer wire harness on my 1992 Suburban, and over time the road salt ate away at the exposed copper strands in the wires, giving me this symptom on a yearly basis.
.NewHad the same problem with my 98 Suburban, found out that my tail light assembly is corroded, had it sand blast and it working superb. good luck
New My problem started with first one side, then a few days later it went to both sides. Turned out my cable under the rear bumper had caught on something when I was offroad driving, but it didn't completely pull apart to begin with. Then later, it finally parted all together. It took all of 10 seconds to repair it once I knew what was wrong.
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.
ABS and brake lights on dash will be on. Speedometer and cruise will be inoperative.ABS and brake lights on dash will be on. Speedometer and cruise will be inoperative.
Turn signals use a relay or 'flasher' which is usually located on or near the column under the dash. Brake lights get their power thru the brake light switch on or near your brake pedal under the dash; check it with a 12v circuit tester.
No brake lights but turn signals work? Turn signal switch brakes route through it.
my 98 suburban did the same thing. when i changed my headlight switch that turns them off and on, they started working again.
Bulbs blown/Brake lamp switch inoperative
How do you replace brake lights
Answer Usually when the flasher blinks rapidly it's about finished. Try replacing the signal light flasher and see what happens. If you still don't have Brake Lights start looking for a short.
May possibly be in the multifuction switch on the left of the steering column!!!!
It depends on the vehicle but in general you would have one fuse for the signals and one fuse for the brake lights.
check the brakelight switch. it is located under the dash where the brake pedal rests. Hey its ritchie. If you can click your blinker down and then they work its you blinker switch,but this is my monte.
Replace brake light switch.
It is not necessarily the fuse. It could be the switch on the brake that is not closing the circuit.
Fuse 7 controls the brake lights. It should be a red 10amp fuse.
i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs
Could be the brake light switch or fuse.
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.
change the fuse if not replace flasher
It has a flasher relay for the signals only.
To remove the brake pedal on a 1998 Suburban, unscrew the bolt that holds it to the steering wheel column. There are several wires that also have to be disconnected from here that control brake lights.
slightly apply the E brake
More than likely, you need to replace the stoplight switch. It is not a diificult change. Look under the dash directly where the brake pedal comes in contact with the dash when it is not depressed. Press the brake and notice the little contact nipple that pops out. That is the stoplight switch. Replace that, and you are good to go!!!
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.
