Brake Light Bulb Replacement Service

What is the Brake Light Bulb all about?

Brake light bulbs are located at the back of the car, housed inside a protective covering (lens). The brake light turns on when you push the brake pedal, letting drivers know that you are slowing down. If the brake light does not illuminate, you’re at a higher risk for causing an accident and/or being pulled over and cited by a police officer.

Keep in mind:

Keep in mind the number of brake lights a car has can vary. The third (or rear window/center) brake light should not be overlooked when doing an inspection.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake bulbs, sockets and wiring.
  • Replace the bulb, if faulty.
  • Check all the lights.

Our recommendation:

A mechanic should inspect the brake light during a major service. Before replacing a bulb, your mechanic should also inspect the socket and wiring. Due to the high amount of current flowing through these sockets, sometimes the sockets melt, causing the brake light to malfunction.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Light Bulb?

  • Brake lights do not work when brake pedal is depressed.
  • Light Bulb warning light is illuminated on the dashboard.

How important is this service?

When you apply the brakes, your brake light bulb illuminates. This allows drivers behind you a warning that you are slowing down, so that they can slow down as well. A dead brake light bulb will never work, and your car will be devoid of this important safety feature. Not having working brake lights is also illegal, and can result in a hefty "fix-it" ticket.

Gregory arrived early and promptly resolved the issue with a faulty brake light. He recommended synthetic oil for our vehicle as it has just over 100K miles. He was also kind enough to check the battery on a different vehicle we're having issues with. I would highly recommend Gregory for any mechanical needs.
