07 Chevy Silverado 1500 Classic, brake lights may not be working properly.

Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 07:09 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic 1500 LS Extended Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was told by a person in another vehicle that I had no tail lights/ brake
lights, eventhough my third brake light lights up when pressing on the
brake, but that is the only light that comes "ON" when pressing on the
brake, so I am confused.

At first I did some research and mostly I was led to the brake light switch,
so I replaced the switch and afterwards I got the same results as before,
now I understand if I bought a faulty switch, but I am not sure of that.

Fuses are good by the way,  so I am not sure what could causing the
problem?

Double check the tailight fuse and replace or switch it. Sometimes it can look good but be bad. Then you probably lost your ground to your tailights. Remove the tailights and see if you can follow the wire that is bolted to ground.Sand the connections clean and re bolt it or add your own new ground wire ( bolt or screw to frame somewhere ) strip back the wire connected to the outside base on the pigtail and jumper it to ground somewhere and see if your lights won't come on!
