Q: Q: Brake lights not working

asked by on

My brake lights are not working. I think it might have something to do with the fuses.

Yes, the fuses are a good start in a diagnosis, but if a fuse is blown, then a deeper problem may exist. The most common problem in your case is the brake light switch not making contact. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, come by to determine the cause of the non-functioning brake light to see if the switch is at fault, or if you have different problem in the system.
