Q: Brake lights not working in a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

asked by on February 03, 2016

My brake lights aren't working.

The first thing to check for is any blown fuses for the brake lights. The brake light switch gets power from the a fuse and then sends power into the brake light fuse and the turn signal module. Power from the switch would need to be checked to see if a fuse or switch is bad. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic inspect your brake lights for you.
