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.

Why do your blinkers work but not your brake lights?

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.

What fuse is to be replaced when the Brake Lights don't work on an 89 Ford Econoline Blinkers Hazards and Park Lights work?

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.

Brake lights don't work on my 1998 Chevy silverado 2500 pickup what be done?

Eagle talon 1995 brake lights are not working But the lights work when the light are on why dont the brake lights come on?

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
