Q: Q: Brake lights not working

asked by on

My brake lights are not working. I am not sure if it is the fuse or the bulbs.

The most common problem in this scenario is that the brake light switch isn’t sending the required power to the rear brake lights. I recommend having the switch checked to see if it’s indeed defective and is the cause of why the lights aren’t working as intended. A certified mechanic will be able to inspect and replace your brake light switch if necessary.
