Check the bulbs. These bulbs are a combination tail light & brake light. Even though the blinkers work, the brake light part might be burnt out. If these are okay, check the brake light switch. It's mounted on the brake pedal. Are the brake lights on all the time or they don't light up at all? if all the bulbs are fine, its more than likely the stop-light switch underneath the brake pedal.
If there is no brake lights on a 1998 Mazda pickup, check the fuse. If the fuse has blown, the lights will not work.
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
brake light switch is above the brake pedal under the dash
so what do i do if my blinkers do not when the lights are on
You need new bulbs
If the blinkers work then your taillight wiring is bad.
Its the brake switch on the brake pedal. Its a plunger like switch, its usually the only thing on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change.
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.
GO AND BUY I NEW light bulb !
Start with the fuses, then check the bulbs, then start tracing wires.
a blown bulb or loose wire.
I am currently having the same problem you are having check the fuse to see if it is blown the blinkers and brake lights are on the same fuse my system has a short in it somewhere and is popping the fuses I am in the process of running new wires since the wonderful people at Chevy ran all the wires thru the frame and you can't access them
has anyone checked the fuses and bulbs?
IT COLUD BE A RELAY BOX multi function switch( turn signal, lites ect.)
Answerpull the bulbs on the left and make sure they are not in with the tits in the wrong position. That is lower teet in the upper slot of the socket.
The problem might not be a fuse. There is a switch which activates the brake lights when the brake pedal is depressed. This switch is usually mounted under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal lever. Insure that this switch is free to move physically, and test it to see if it is switching electrically.
you need to replace blinker can in your vehicle. the flashers and blinkers have separate flasher cans which is why your flashers still work but not your blinkers
Brake lights indicate when a vehicle is about to stop. When brake lights stop working it is important to check the wiring, the fuse, and the light itself. It could be that any of those need to be replaced.
it could be a plunger relay switch or pressure switch as some people call them. It will be mounted on the brake pedal arm. but i would check the bulbs first because if it is a dual filament bulb it could have gone out on one filament and not another. if your tail lights work and the blinkers work while the tail lights are on then most likely it is the switch on the pedal
Check stop light fuse Check bulbs double filamented smaller for brake lights Check the operation of the stop light switch Check socket for corrosion
You may have a blown fuse or a defective brake light switch.
The Switch may be bad. Check the bulbs for the parking lights. Check the fuses / relays for the parking lights.
my back brake lights don't work, but the brake light on the back door does what could be wrong
Check the tail light bulbs, clean it if you have using fine sandpaper. If it did no work check the cable connected to the lights. If the cable integriry was not damaged, check the fuse box.
Check bulbs - they are double filamented with smaller being for brake lights Check stop light fuse Check the operation of the brake light switch Check sockets for corrosion and ground
