If the brake lights do not work on Chevy Venture van 2000, try to disconnect the brake switch. Then short the two contacts of the connector to check if the brake lights are now working.




Ensure relays and parking brake switch are properly functioning.


on the emergancy brake lever there is an electrical switch, just unplug it they will go off and your fog lights will still work.


check the fuse, brake lights have their own, & check the brake switch at the top of the brake pedal


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.


I would check the running lights for one with a short. I had the same sort of thing with my trailer and I spent way to much time troubleshooting the brake and signal wires. Turns out a running light bulb connector was grounding out on the trailer and messing it all up.


if the tail lights work but not brake lights then its most likely just a blown fuse or it could be the switch at the top of your brake pedal arm.


brakes and running lights have separate fuses. check the fuse then check the brake light switch under the dash


check the brake light switch that is on top of your brake pedal under the dash, could be out of adjustment or bad.


The only thing that will work with key OFF is the brake lights,head lights and emergency flashers. Dome light will also work.


I have a chev cavlier 1995 and the running lights do no work---on the dash the green light keeps blinking----what should I do?


Blown fuse, broken wire, or short in your running lights circuit. you may also not have dash lights. Brake lights, T/S are on a separate circuit. Hope this helps, Mike


Hey E==The running lights have a module which may be bad. Good luckJoe


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)


It could be the brake light switch (the switch that activates the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal) has gone bad


No running lights but all other lights work on Chevy 2500 1999 model


My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?



No brake lights but turn signals work? Turn signal switch brakes route through it.


If a 95 Chevy Suburban's brake lights do not work but everything else does, it may be the link that connects to the pedal that has a problem. If the pedal has been adjusted or disconnected, it may also be a reason for the issue.


I always start with the basics.......fuses. Then go to bulbs...... Look in your fuse panel and see if you have one marked tail lights......and check it. the brake, headlights and signals work off another circuit.



Check bulbs they are double filamented smaller for brake lights larger for tailights Check the fuse Check the operation of the stoplight switch
