why wont my brake lights light up when i press the brake?
My tail lights, hazzards, and reverse lights work...but when i press the brake the lights they dont light up. I checked the fuse, and it's fine.
brake light switch is in need of replacement, or adjustment, located under dash by brake pedal arm.
I have the same issue. The break light switch was replaced, fuse checked and still not working. Any suggestions?
Same problem here, fuses ok, light switch replaced, and bulbs were changed, and they still don't work, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
What should I do?
I'm so irritated by the electrical in my 2000 model. The fuses are fine, but I have been told there is a mechanism that trips them so they won't overload, then the ones that are affected have to be pulled out and reinserted to reset them. Obviously there is an electrical problem causing this in the first place, but no one seems to be able to locate it.
The brake light switch is bad.
common issue on these models with brake light not working, is the bulb socket contacts (aluminum) in the housing burn up. Remove the brake light bulb holder and examine the 2 contacts in the housing (not in the bulb holder). If one or both are burned up, you must replace the entire lens assembly/housing. yeah, it sucks.
i was having the same issue, and even after replacing the switch joy... turns out its the switch itself, if the lever gets flipped before installation (or by accident out of the box. that was my issue twice). problem solved. its super important to follow the directions.
gothikredneck, I just replaced the brake switch but we think the switch had already been flipped beforehand. Do we need to return the part for a replacement? Can it just been flipped back then reinserted?
Having same problem with 2000 honda odyssey. Switch fuses and bulbs all test good. Tested brake lights with a test light no power to the rear but all other lights work fine. There also seems to be some wires under the steering column they were cut and taped to each end of a fuse. May have been someones attempt at rigging it. Its a tan wire connected to the center of a wht/blk wire. That actually gave us one working light before. I just dont get it. Any idea where else the issue might be coming from?
I have a 1999 Chry T & C. The passenger side brake lamp(top bulb in tail assy cluster) won't light. The left rear top running lamp works ok. The drivers side brake lamp works correctly when pedal pushed. The bulb filaments not broken, but I replaced it anyway. Brake lamp passenger side still won't light? Any suggestions, please? Thom
2001 odyssey brake lights work when lights are off but will not come on when the lights are on. Any suggestions? Already checked fuses and sensor under brake pedal.
Hello I have a similar issue in my 2002 T&C, but I think is not the brake switch because the third center tail light works fine, so I think it could be another thing, all the bulbs are OK, I already checked the fuses in the box under the hood, can someone tell me anything else?, thank you very much.
