Q: Brake lights not working properly.

asked by on

No brake lights. Fuses and bulbs have been checked.

When all the brake lights quit working, the most likely cause is the brake light switch. This switch activates the brake lights when the brake pedal is depressed. It is usually located on the brake pedal mechanism. Have this switch inspected by a technician to verify its malfunction. No brake lights is a safety issue so if the switch is bad, I would recommend having it replaced as soon as possible to prevent someone from hitting you in a rear end collision.
