intermittent brake light problem

10

Asked by Jan 19, 2010 at 09:10 AM about the 1993 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr STD 4WD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've replaced my brake light switch but still found that I must have a loose connection or short somewhere because now they are not working again. Bulbs are good and what I can see looks to be alright. Is there a specific place I should be looking at for loose or shorted connections?

check the connector on the steering column, the brake light circut goes through the 4 way hazard switch.

there should be a main connector at the back of the bed that both tail light harnesses come into. it should be near the driver side frame rail. id check there

That was the problem, somehow that connector got bumped or something and was loose. I pushed it back together and all is well now, thanks that was really cool.
