Chevy brake lights not responding

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

I would test the brake light switch and the fuse of course, it should have battery voltage (12+ volts) to one side of the connector (under the dash above the brake pedal) when the brake pedal is not depressed, when pressed the brake switch should have 12 volts at both sides of the switch connector. Replace as needed or repair the wiring.

My 1998 Chevy Cavalier has a problem. The brake lights don't all work. The center high mount brake light works when the brake is depressed, but both the right and left tail lights do not work. The bulbs are good. Running lights and turning signal and hazard lights work correctly, but the corner brake lights don't light when you step on the brake. What would cause this problem???


Check the lamp sockets themselves. Pull a bulb and see if the connections in the sockets are bad. ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 4wd, and both of my brake lights stopped working, but the light above the bed of the truck still works. I have checked all the fuses, changed the bulbs, and checked the brake switch, and changed that just to check. I still cant get the brake lights to work. I traced the power and it works all the way to the junction box, but not out to the brake lights. So I bought a new junction box, and I am still not getting any brake lights. Any idea's on what else it can b

I have a 94 Chevy C1500 and the right side brake light and blinker are not working. The tail light and reverse light work though, and the right front blinker works but it blinks twice as fast as it should. All of the left side brake and blinkers work fine. I replaced the bulb, tail light circuit board, and tried a flasher from another Chevy truck that I know was working and still there was no change. What could it be?


It could be a bad multifunction (turn signal) switch. The way that switch works, it is possible that it can turn on the front blinker and not the rear one. It also cancels the brake circuit so the turn signal can work with the brake pe ... 1994 Chevrolet K1500

My 1996 chevy cavalier has no brake lights or blinker lights. I replaced the multifunction switch on the column and the brake stop switch. Still no brake or blinker lights. Third brake light doesn't work either. Headlights and marker lights work fine.


Take a volt meter to the sockets and see if you get any voltage. if you don't, try a continuity test on the socket and see if there are any shorts, blown fuses are good indications of shorts. if you have no voltage and no shorts, you have cut wires s ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer. The brake lights work sometimes and not other times. I have changed the bulbs and the "panel" (the part that all of the bulbs plug into) on each side. When we start the car, we check the brake lights and if they are not working, we tap on the brake light cover and they come on. I have checked the ground wire for the lights and it is solid and not corroded. What does this mean and how can it be fixed?
