I have a 1979 Camaro that the brake lights don't work. I have checked the bulb and fuse, both good. The brake switch is good. I also discovered that the hazad flashers are working as well (the fuse runs both the brake and hazard). The ground is good at the tail lights as well. Is there a relay or something I am missing causing them not to work?


The brake light wiring runs through the turn signal switch. I'd check that for problems. (usually a melted connection in the switch itself.) ... Chevrolet Camaro

My brake lights are not working. Bulbs look good, and it doesn't seem right that they would both fail. Fuse is good, and I checked voltage at the fuse box and get about 9.3 volts DC when I press down on the pedal.

I have a 98 ford contour and the brake lights dont work. Turn signals, flashers, running lights, and third brake light all work. All fuses are good and cannot determine if any relays are bad. Since the third brakelight still works, I am baffled. FYI- I tracked the wires and found an orange/yellow wire going to third brake light, and Orange/green wire going to rear tail lights. These two wires then run separatley back to the fuse block. Please help! Thanks, Jake


Accoding to my schematic you should be seeing an orange/yellow wire going to the third brake light, and a branched off orange/yellow wire going to the turn signal switches which in turn goes to the BLU/WHT and BLU/BLK wires which control the rear sto ... 1998 Ford Contour
