Check turn signal switch. Pull back lighty on turn signal lever and brake lights will come on. Replace switch inside steering column. The green and yellow wires you see at the bulbs are the ones that control the brake lights and turn signals.

This could be caused by a malfunctioning fuse. fuses will need to be checked. the light bulbs within the tail lights wil need to be checked. the switch under the brake pedal will need to be check to make sure it it activating properly. if all else fails it could be a wire problem and your wire system will need to be checked

If the brake lights are not coming on in your car and you have changed the bulbs and the fuses with no results, you could also check the wiring in your '98 Chevrolet Lumina. The wires may be damaged or even broken.

Check to stop light switch - usually located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

Check the bulbs. If these are OK it could be the switch on the brake pedal arm.

Could be low on brake fluid, time to have the brakes checked.

I have asked a similar question.Ive checked the bulbs and the fuse and they are fine. There is a brake light plunger type switch attached to the upper part of the brake pedal but i havent been able to locate it yet.Its awarkward lying on your back with a torch trying to find it.

There could be a separate fuse for the lower brake lights , or maybe both lower brake light bulbs are burned out

It could be low on brake fluid, a sign of trouble. Have the brakes checked SOON!

You could have a bad brake light switch, bad bulbs, or a short in the wiring. Try changing the bulbs first. My Camry was doing the same thing. I put in new bulbs and no more problem.

Your problem may be with any or all of these three items: The fuse, brake switch or bulbs in the brake lights.

Could be, a blown fuse, burned out bulbs, bad brake light switch, or an improperly installed brake light switch.

Probably the wrong bulbs or the brake lights are getting stuck "on". Or maybe a combination of the two. Check that you have the right bulbs and check to make sure something isn't keeping the brake lights on. FriPilot

A stuck parking brake could be caused by several things. The brake cable that operates that brake could be stuck, or the mechanism could be stuck at the wheel. The wheel will need to be removed and the cable and emergency brake arms will have to be checked.
