Why don't my hazard lights flash when the brake pedal is pressed on your 1997 Chevy s-10?

This is normal. The 4-way and brake light share the same bulb. The brake light overrides the 4-way when applied.

The hazard switch and the turn signal and brake lights are all incorparated, chances are the 3-1 switch is broke internally check all fuses

Probably a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is installed incorrectly.

Yes they indeed have brake lights...

It needs checked out but both the hazard and brake lights go through the turn signal switch.

if you mean: "why do hazard lights flash when brakes are on", then the answer is because vehicles are equipped with a hazard light relay that supercedes the brake lights. This way, slow moving vehicles can operate under hazard lighting.

The problem points to the directional/lights and hazard switch. The brake light wiring is part of that circuit.You can buy the switch after market it is about $70.00.

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.

Your problem very well could be the hazard switch. i have a 1994 honda civic too i found whenever i disconnected the hazard switch from the wiring harness my turn signals brake lights and of course hazards do not work. Maybe replace the hazard switch..

on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that

the connection between the battery and the brake lights

nothing it could just be the tail lights coming on.

There is no switch to activate or deactivate the brake lights on a 1988 Nissan. The brake lights automatically turn on any time the brakes are pressed.

You can't. If the lights didn't stop blinking, no one would know you were stopping. Re: I gues that´s the point of the third light, because when you are stopped, no one knows, you are about to do something else, like backing to park, or that you are stooped and they need to go around you...

are brake lights staying on or is brake in the dash on ?

In the 91, there are two fuses for those features. Fuse 18 (15 amp) runs the Backup Lights, Turn Flasher and Turn Lights. Fuse 19 (20 amp) runs the Brake Lights and Hazard Flasher. (From the 91 Caprice service manual)

What fuse controls the brake lights on a 1998 Chevy Camaro? It should be labeled on the fuse block.

i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs

The brake light switch on a Nissan is located just behind the brake pedal. It sends a signal to the brake lights when the pedal is pressed to turn them on.
