are you sure the lower brake lights your talking about aren't tail lights. That's my guess. Check in the fuse box for a fuse labeled dash, illumination, parking or something to that effect.

Was the fuse blown. If not then your instrument lights are probably just turned off. There is a rheostat to turn the lights up and down. Read your owner's manual for the location.

Your brake lights on your 2002 Acura RSX arent working but your tail lights are?

The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.

Tailights and dash lights are often fused together. Check the fuse for instrument lights. Also if the fuse is blown and you have a trailer connector on the truck, really look for a short there. I hope this helps a little.

This isn't an answer but I have the same problem w/ my Honda civic... ik they arent the same but the light wont turn on when neither doors in the front are open... I think it's got something to do with the sensor or whatever... the one that's black and feels rubbery.

Where is the fuse for the brake lights at your brake lights arent working and i don't know what the prob is?

check under the hood of the vehicle...there should be a rectangular or square box with fuses there...there is also one under the dash of the vehicle. If it isn't the fuse check the bulbs... check the switch under the dash where the brake pedal rests in may need adjusting, broken, or just stuck in and not popping out when you apply the brake. Push it in and out severel times and see if the lights come on.

Why does my dodge Dakota not shift into gear It will not come out of park And the brake lights arent working either. Could there be a connection?

There is what is called a brake sensor. This sensor has to engage to sent a signal to the transmission to release the pawl so that you can shift it. Replace the brake pedal sensor. It is usually on the top of the pedal arm upward under the dash. This will also cause the brake lights not to work. Good luck.
