Q: Brake lights not working in 1998 Saab 900

asked by on

My brake lights are not working.

The third-brake light should be checked to see if it is working, first. If it is not working then the brake-light switch, a bad fuse, or an unplugged harness could be the problem. Try giving your emergency flashers as a quick test. If brake lights still do not work, I would recommend having a certified mechanic come inspect your brake lights to diagnose your issue.
