Q: Brake lights out in a 2004 Toyota Solara

asked by on

I had no third brake light and tried to fix it, but ended up with all three brake lights being out.

It sounds like the fuse for the brake lights may have blown. This would cause all your brake lights to stop working. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to inspect your brake light and see what repairs needed to be made.
