I'm new here and did a search for a problem I had in the past where the brake lights don't work but the running lights work and the fuses are fine. I saw others that had the same problem but did not see my "fix".
Yes, sometimes it is the brake light switch, but other times it is the...
Hazard Light Switch
Yep. I don't know why but when I did a internet search I found one story that told of the hazard switch being the problem. He blew it out with air and sprayed WD-40 in there (which I didn't do).
Remembering this as I was working on my lights I just got fed up and flipped the hazard switch back-and-forth about twenty times and saw the turn lights on the dash start to come on (hazards hadn't worked either). A great deal of crud started to fly upwards as I was doing it. I then used my handy old wooden board to set against the brake pedal and "PRESTO!", my brake lights were working again.
I realize this won't work for everyone, but it might work for some. If/when I use my hazards I have to look again to make sure the brake lights are still working and wiggle the switch if they aren't.
Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but as I said, I did a search and found only answers that were brake light switch, wiring or bulbs.
Have a great day... RT
