If you are referring to the brake light then the brake light switch is stuck.

User Avatar

if it isn't a fuse or lamp problem, check the brake lamp switch on the brake pedal, if you unplug the switch, and jumper the connection, and you have brake lamps, replace the switch...

Changing the lamps is pretty straight forward. There is a cover over the lamp assembly, remove it. Then, turn the tail lamp (with the connector) counter clockwise about 1/4 turn. Pull the assembly forward, then replace the lamp. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this helps.

Loose bulb or loose connection.

I'm assuming that one of your brake light bulbs is not working

You have to unbolt the entire tail lamp assembly to change the bulbs. Unbolt the tail lamps from inside the corners of the bed, replace the light bulbs, bolt the tail lamps back in place.

The brake lights are an entirely separate system from the head/tail lights but have a lot in common with the blinkers and four way flashers. TO test the bulbs try the blinkers. If you get the same bright-red lamp that your brakes should use, your lamps are OK. Look under the dash at the top of the brake pedal. There is a switch on the pedal connected to two wires in a black jacket. That is the brake light switch. If you unplug the wires and read the voltage at the plug from pin to ground, one should have battery voltage. If there is no battery voltage then the fuse or the wiring between the fuse block and the switch is bad. If there is voltage, short across the two pins. This should light up your brake lights. If the brakes light, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. If you you have voltage and don't get lights when you short the pins then your wiring between the brake pedal switch and the brake lamps is bad. You will probably need to involve a garage at that point.

FYI - I had a bad alternator. Apparently, a failed alternator may/can/will cause the battery AND brake warning lamps to come on. Alternator has been replaced, and all warning lamps cleared.

See Tail Lamps, Turn Signal, Stop Lamps and Sidemarker Lamps on page 5-57 of your "Owner's Manual", under Section 5: Service and Appearance Care - Bulb Replacement...

tighten brake switch located on top of brake pedal under dash adjust so lamps are out and come on with light pressure on pedal.

User Avatar

first thing,check your brake lamps,if the lower brake lamps do not work the car will not come out of park because of a safety feature that requires you to press the brake pedal to shift out of park. the stop lamps provide the power to release the shifter,if this is the case you just need to fix your brak lamps,most vehicle have a featue to enable you to release shifter in emergencies.try turning the key to unlock without turning the dash lamps on then shift to nuetral and start the vehicle,if this doesnt work there should be a plugged off slot by the shifter that you can insert a key to release it

User Avatar

could very well be brake switch on back of brake pedal. it is located at the top back off pedal, or it could be out of adjustment. check and see if power to back lamps, if not check brake switch.

Last time I ran into this problem, the wires attached to the brake light switch connector on the brake pedal were broken (the insulation looked good but when wiggled there was an obvious fault). I spliced the wires back together and the brake lamps worked! Hope this helps, Radioman

No. The two circuits are not normally connected.

User Avatar

You can try unscrewing the gear lever case putting some oil in there and try to losen it. Additionally: FIRST Check to assure that brake lamps are working when the pedal is pressed. If not, replace the brake lamp fuse or repair the problem with the brake lamp switch. For Safety the brake lamp switch is tied into a shift lock on most modern autos preventing the auto being placed into gear unless the brakes are applied.

Typically city transportation employees change the bulbs in street lamps approximately every 3-4 years. For the high sitting lamps, a mast is raised and the bulbs are replaced, usually during the daylight hours.
