Check the stop light switch on the brake pedal.
The problem is with the turn signal switch.The only cure is to replace the turn signal switch which is in the steering colum. This runs about $600.00 . This happens in 1995 to 1999 Monte Carlo's. Somtimes you can put your turn signal on to left or right then back to center and brake lights will work until you use your turn signal again.
I have this problem as we speak the cheap and quick fix is to pull the turn signal in to the point right before it clicks on your high beams during stopping. After awhile it will become second nature but you will realize you keep doing even in diffrent cars.
If your 98 Monte Carlo brake lights do not work when you hit the brakes, but the top one behind the glass works, check the bulbs. If the bulbs have burn out, the lights will cease to work.
Brake light switch on the brake pedal is defective
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
If the bulbs are good then the brake light switch is bad, it's on top of the brake pedal up under the dash.
a fuse or fulty wiring the brake lights are useually out the same time as the dash lights if that helps any
The brake light switch is bad, look on top of the brake pedal under the dash and you will see the switch, replace it and you will have brake lights.
Changing the brake light switch in your Chevrolet Monte Carlo is quite simple. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.
my 95 montey Carlo is doing the same thing, and it is the turn signal switch assembaly,
Rear loom ground not contacting. Bulbs burned out or missing. Brake light switch or connection to it is fubared.
You probably need a new turn signal switch. I have a '96 Monte Carlo and I had to replace the turn signal switch to get the brake lights to work. Thankfully I had a brother who knew how to take off the steering column and replace. Hopes this helps!!!
1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo no tail lights or dash lights they will come on at time and go off the fuses are not bowed. The tun singles and flasher and brake light work. What should I look for now?
Check the brake switch up under the dash on the brake pedal. Lie on the drivers floor, look up and then push the brake pedal with yoru hand and see if there is any kind of electrical connector that actuates the brake lights when you push the pedal in.
.The 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo brake caliper bolt size is 9/16. The brake caliper bolt can be purchased at most auto-parts stores
this tells you is a simple wiring problem.most likely a loose wire from the third light to the other lights.(third lights provides the power to the other lights)
* It could be a blown fuse or * the brake light switch on top of the brake pedal under the dash is bad or * the turn signal switch is bad.
check fuses first and if good more than likely the brake light switch is bad and that is on top of the brake pedal up under the dash.
turn the key to acc. put the parking brake on 1 click and then start it the lights shouldn't come onAnswerPull the fuse to it.
Yes, but I'd say they took the whole car. However i don't know if they were recalled.
check your break fluid.
It should be in the fusebox with the rest of the fuses.
on top of the brake pedal under the dash.
Could be a fuse or could be a bad bulb. See sources and related links below for bulb part numbers.
First thing I'd check would be the fuse for the stop lights. If it is okay the next thing I'd check would be the stoplight switch located under the dash where the brake pedal is suspended.
the switch on brake pedal is faulty and needs replacing
