I have a 1995 GMC Sierra an the third eye brake light comes on but the other brake light dont work


Could be both bulbs have burned out at once. Or could be the brake light switch. The third brake light and the normal brake lights operate seperatly. Or could be the wires.

Hand brake light on dash intermittant. Switch at hand brake is ok


check the brake fluid level. the brake fluid can be low and comes on when stopping or going around curves. the brake fliud level sensor uses the same brake light as the parking brake. if the fliud is low check the pads and /or shoes for wear.

Brake lights don't work how to fix


When a vehicle's brake lights all go out at the same time, the culprit is usually the
"stoplight Switch" which is operated by depressing the brake pedal.

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.
If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Unplug the wires.
  • Replace with a new switch. Adjust as needed.
  • Plug the wires back in.
If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:
  • Mark and disconnect the wires.
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Screw the replacement switch in.
  • Reconnect the wires
Here's a picture of the "Stoplight Switch", aka Brake Light Switch - 1995 GMC K1500 Sierra

Brake lights (stoplights) are activated by a mechanical switch on the brake pedal.
To test a suspected bad stoplight switch, bypass it with a jumper wire. The stoplights should light when the wires are connected. Use the test light to see if there is power at one of the lights.
  • If the lights come on when the wires are connected but not when the brakes are applied, replace the switch.
  • If the stoplights operate without the key on, remove the stoplight fuse before removing the switch.
  • If the new switch is adjustable, adjust it so that it is open when the pedal is released.lights should come on about 1/4" after the pedal is applied.

1995 gmc K2500 left and right brake lights come on with ignition turned on. 3rd brake light comes on when you step on the brake 4 way flashers do not work. Ignition turned off 4 way flashers and brake...


I think your trouble is in the turn signall switch, just had the same trouble on my truck. Turn signall switch is about $250 because it is actually turn signalls, wipers, washers, 4 ways, and dimmer all in one.

Tail lights on my 1995 for explorer work but brake lights wont come on top bar brake light works but bottom brake lights on tail light dont work what could be the problem


your brake lights also go through your turn signal switch,also known as the multifunction switch. You will have to remove the cover around the lower part of steering column to gain access to the switch.

Brake lights do not work on a 1993 v-6 PU Can I obtain a schematic wiring diagram from you?


You need to replace the brake light switch (aka stop light switch) which is mounted on the upper brake pedal, with a electric plug in. If this doesn't help, let me know.
