your brake light switch is probably out
It depends on the exact problem. If it's that both brake lights in the back do not work and the middle one works, it could be your turn signal switch.
are you sure it is the brake lights and not the tail lights. if it is the brake lights you most likely have a short some where. go to a auto eletrican It is the brake lights which turn on. Short in the switch or the wiring?
well they arent but I happen to be both... suprisingly it works :)
Brake light switch near brake pedal
It needs checked out but both the hazard and brake lights go through the turn signal switch.
i do not confess to know about dodge Dakota (English) but the most common problem for dimming rear lights when the brake is applied is a poor earth to the rear light assembly, the earth connection works fine for rear lights but overloads when brake lights used. check the connection of the earth to the light unit and if necessary remove and clean the both ends of the earth wire.Answeryou have an earth problem, check the wire that connects to the body on that lamp
Brake Lights not Stop Lights. Check your Fuses then the Bulbs. Hope This Helps.
i had the same problem and when i took the brake lights out and check the wire, it happend to be the ground was not connected, after i connected to the wall it work fine. to make it easier take both brake lights out, the whole light from the back, then look at all the wires on both side, if u see something diffrent then u problebly have ur problem
First check if bulbs and fuses are good and see if the back lights come on when you turn on the lights. If everything works and the bulbs and fuses are good then its most likely the brake switch on your brake pedal, its usually the only thing wired to the brake pedal. If its not that you might have a short somewhere but usually its either fuses or the brake switch, both are cheap and easy to change.
in the fuse box
Because something's wrong, of course. What it could be... bad switch, break/short in the wiring, bad fuse or relay, or even just bad bulbs.. chances are, your car uses dual filament bulbs for the brake lights, where they'll function as both marker lights (with one filament active) and brake lights (with both filaments energized).
Make sure both bulbs are good (dual filament bulbs) check the brake light switch on the brake pedal. Also, if you are wired for a trailer hitch, the 4-5 wire module may be bad. Eliminate it and check the brake lights again.
ABS system is inoperable and there is something wrong with the non-ABS part of your brake system.
Check and make sure you have the correct bulb. The turn signal/brake light is a dual element bulb and if you have a single element it does not work properly.
for the tail lights all the other lights are working blanking lights brake lights and reverse lights but no tail lights on both side
Defective brake light switch.
There could be a separate fuse for the lower brake lights , or maybe both lower brake light bulbs are burned out
Blinkers can work without brake lights. Brake lights are activated by a switch that is switched by the brake petal and the turn signals are acivated by your turn signal switch on your steering column. The two are two separate circuits. I suggest you check out the switch on your brake pedal to see if it is working properly. It must have 12 volts applied to one side when it is not acitvated and 12 volts should be on both sides when it is activated. When the 12 volts is on both sides of the brake switch, it should apply 12 volts to your brake lights and then they should come on.
Check the ground wire. You have a bad connection somewhere.
check connections that are attached to the lights and the the wire that leads away from them incase they have been damaged, aslo check the fuse that works the lights and if all else fails see you nearest automobil repare shop
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.
I hate to ask , but did you check the bulbs ? The tail light portion may work fine , but the brake lights don't if both of the bulbs are bad .
THIS WAS MY QUESTION, BECAUSE THE 3RD BRAKE LIGHT WAS BLINKING I THOUGHT THERE WAS A MAJOR PR0BLEM,TURNS OUT IT WAS THAT BOTH BULBS WERE BAD,CHANGED THEM AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE
The parking brake may be on or the switch is broken on the brake.
