My brake lights don't work, but my other rear lights do. I just changed out the brake light switch and my fuses are fine, but lights still do not work
you might want to try and giggle the turn signal switch and tight switch while holding down the brake and have some one watch. also change both brake bulbs/inspect the filaments
I changed out the bulbs about 2 months ago and the tail lights are working fine. I did notice that my right turn signal flashes way faster that the left, could this have something to do with it?
replace the flasher (cheap)..check the bulbs again... then move the turn signal and light switches on / off... im guessing the brake light switch was adjusted and checked for power in and out....
Is it a switch for the flasher? If so where is it? Changing out the brake light switch was a major pain in the ass due to its location. I hope the flasher is easier. Should I also check the wiring coming into the brake light assembly in the back where the bulb is?
yes check power (test light) in/to the brake bulb socket...for the flasher, turn it on and listen for it.. before you do that hold the brake down and giggle firmly the turn sig, switch and light switch..to see if you get anything bake there..
Ok I will try these things, thank you
Check the wires under the bed. Had sim prob with tails not working. It was a burned out fuseable link plug mold. On the driver side up in the frame, pull down the black wire jacket tubing and pull the wires out.
Can be the turn signal switch. There is a recall on a lot of years so the dealer must replace it for free if you are one of the years. The switch is a pain to get to see, but you can do it under 5 minutes, and they are under $20.00.
The 5 minutes and unbder 20 is the brake light switch not the turn signal FYI
canman....it all floooows thru the turn signal switch... but do check them other wires...all other replies are also good.vvps. i made a boo-boo about the flasher ..mixed it up with another reply...but for $3.00 why not...did you find the problem.....im here for you...
Most likely the flasher. However I just put a heavy duty flasher in to accommodate pulling a utility trailer. All working but now I notice I have to push brake pedal very hard to get brake lights.....pedal switch guys?
I was having the same problem but now I can't get my truck to go in gear and I can't get the pit to go in to hold the brake switch on to the pedal and I don't even know if my brake lights work. Main problem is how to fix it so I can go in gear.
