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.

Saturn Vue V6-3.5L - Brake Light Bulb Replacement (Driver Side) - Colorado Springs, Colorado
From start to finish, Brad’s work was superior in every way. From initial diagnosis, to describing what repairs were necessary, to the final summary of work completed, Brad kept me informed all along. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and with great patience, while exhibiting a level of efficiency and professionalism that was nothing short of extraordinary. He went above and beyond to help me coordinate scheduling with my daughter, was very helpful during the online payment process, and described the recommended repairs to me in a way that I could understand. Brad’s superb “people skills”, combined with the above described work ethic, created an exceptional level of service for which I am truly grateful. This was my first experience with yourmechanic.com, and it could not have been any better, thanks to Brad!! With sincere thanks and appreciation, Nick (Norman, OK)
