Could be the brake light switch or fuse.
There is a switch under brake pedal. This switch controls the brake lights. They some times go bad. Have someone stand behind vehicle while you push on brake pedal, if no brake lights come on. Try pushing the brake switch by hand. Check for power with a voltmeter.
I am having the same trouble. My brake lights work with the light switch for nighttime driving, but only far right brake light works when i pres brake pedal. Reverse lights dont work at all. Turn signals and hazard light work.
How do you replace brake lights
On the back of a car there are tail lights, turn signals, and brake lights. Cars also have back up lights that tell people when the car is in reverse.
Fuse 7 controls the brake lights. It should be a red 10amp fuse.
It is not necessarily the fuse. It could be the switch on the brake that is not closing the circuit.
Check the fuses first then check the bulbs.
i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs
The brake lights in your 1983 Nissan pickup truck are controlled by the brake light relay switch. When the brake light relay switch malfunctions the brake lights will stop working.
If all the fuses are good, then most likely the brake light switch right on the brake pedal inside the car. Check that.
Bad socket? Bad ground? Problem in steering column switch?
It depends on the vehicle but in general you would have one fuse for the signals and one fuse for the brake lights.
im not familair with that make of vehicle but. the brake lights anf the signals are supposed to be separte. they both plug into a harness near the back of the vehicle. if your brake lights are working with your signals, you might have something crossed. take it to an expert you trusst and let them check it out.
Turn signals use a relay or 'flasher' which is usually located on or near the column under the dash. Brake lights get their power thru the brake light switch on or near your brake pedal under the dash; check it with a 12v circuit tester.
if the tail lights work but not brake lights then its most likely just a blown fuse or it could be the switch at the top of your brake pedal arm.
change the fuse if not replace flasher
Many cars use the same bulb for the brake and turn indicator. Seems like one is burnt out. Have someone step on the brake and see if one of the brake lights does not respond.
Could be a bad wiring harness, disruption of the circuit somewhere between the brake pedal and the brake lights, a bad switch which fails to actuate the brake lights. See sources and related links below for bulb information.
You may want to start with the brake fuse. If you still have turn signals and lights. you may also want to check the brake electical relay switch in the relay box Check as well the brake switch located at the brake pedal.
Blown fuse or bad headlight switch
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.
After fuse (should be labeled) Try bulbs and defective stop light switch
You may have blown a fuse. You may have to replace your brake light switch which is located above the brake pedal under the dash. Also it could be your emergency flasher knob if its broken. All of your turn signals and break lights run through it and if the connections on it are off none of the brake lights and turn signals will work.
