is the simplest thing to fix in a vehicle, 1 go under your dash board follow the brake peda up and you'll see a switch(electrical conection) attached to it. that is the brake light switch 2 removed the electrical wire going to it and either unscrew or "un-pin" the switch.(piece of cake) 3 buy the same switch and re attach it in the same order that you took the old one off. if you have 2 switches o your pedal disconect the one that only has an electrical conector . because the one that has electrical conector and a hose is not a brake light switch that is your cruise control reset switch.(if your car is equiped with it)

Sounds like it's not your bulb that is bad. It may be your brake switch isn't working.

Probably your emergency brake pedal. Try lifting up on your e brake pedal and see if id goes out.

Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.

Check all fuses first, check the brake switch located under the dash above the brake pedal. If you have a hitch on the car check the trailer wiring harness.

I have the same problem- press on the brake, no brake lights. Press on the brake and pull back on turn signal/high beams lever, brake lights turn on! Jiggle the lever, brake lights turn on, but left turn signal does not work. I have replaced the switch that is down near the brake pedal and that is not the problem. I think you may need to replace the whole turn signal/high beams/cruise control switch....or at least that's what I'm going to try.

Take old lights out. Put new lights in. Done. You have just changed the interior lights on a 97 Buick Regal!

It' likely, if bulbs are OK that the turn signal switch is burned out. If the switch fails, it won't allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. Go to:http://www.2carpros.com/first_things/no_brake_lights.htm for the 4 page analysis. See: "(American Car) Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working" To determine if the switch is bad test the incoming and outgoing current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires, the turn signal switch has probably failed. This is a Buick design issue because keeping your foot on the brake or if the brake switch sticks keeping the brake lights on, the circuit will fail due to amperage overload.

The only thing common to all those lights (but not to the center brake light) is the hazard switch. I'd check that next. On my 96 Century the hazards override the signals and brake lights meaning that the signals and brake lights must be wired into the hazard switch somehow.

Answerthe brake light switch down at the brake pedal is most likely bad .AnswerFirst, use a test light to check to see if the bulbs are getting power. If not, check the stop light switch. This is the switch connected to the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is pushed, this switch closes the circut and causes the brake lights to come on.AnswerThe brake lights are wired through the hazard switch, Turn the hazard lights on and off several times, the brake lights should start working.the hazzard swith has a little plastic piece that dry rots over time, go to junkyard and by the switch, very simole job, cost me 25 cents

How do you replace the third rear brake light in a 2005 buick allure

User Avatar

If the brake light fuse is good then it can be the brake light switch. Some are mechanical switches and some are pressure switches. If it is a pressure switch, the switch will be on or near the master cylinder, and you will see a wire going to that switch. If it is mechanical, the switch will be located somewhere on the brake pedal swing arm. it may just need adjustment or it may be bad and need replacing.

It's under a panel door that says FUSES on it that's under the dash over the brake pedal.

will the dash lights work if we use a bcm out of a different 2002 buick rendezvousand put it in my 2002 buick rendezvous

The 2001 Buick Century brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The brake light switch should be labeled as such.

Maybe a fuse or relay burned out sounds like a bad multifunction switch, very common issue with older gm's in the 90s. Believe it or not gm wired the brake lights to be powered off the multi-function switch assembly in the steering column

On my 1999 Buick Regal the DRL module is located on the outside foot well behind the parking brake pedal under the carpet. My DRL has gone bad and is making the car quit.

Small pedal on the left of the brake pedal - activates the rear brake to hold vehicle

The ram on the rear calliper is threaded and need to be screwed back in order to get the brake pads in. I also had problems with the Munroe brake pads that I bought being to thick. I took them aback to where i bought them and the parts manager told me that this was a known problem. He gave me a set of different pads and I had no problems installing them.
