Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 94 toyota camry and it just stopped running. I had it for about 4 months. When i left work I was driving down the street pushing the gas but my spedometer was showing the gas going down after that my battery light came on followed by my brake light and my oil light. I tried to hit the brake and the brake wouldn't work so I had to pull up my e brake for my car to stop. My friend looked at it and thought it may be a coil under the distributor something but its not. What else can it be?

Answers :

When the engine died you lost power to the brakes and all of the warning lights came on.
Someone will need to figure out if the problem is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Could be anything from a fuse to a relay to the fuel pump in the tank.

I was driving to the gym when my car died on me. it still had power and tryied to turn over but wouldn't start. I thought maybe it was out of fuel because the fuel guage is broke. I pushed it into the gas station and put gas in and it still wouldn't start. I then waited a little bit and tried again and all of a sudden all power is lost now, no lights, radio nothing will work. I looked under the hood just infront of the firewall on the driver side it looks like oil or power steering fluid has spr

Check your brake fluid level. Normal wear from the brake pads can cause it to go low, and this will cause both of these lights to go on. ... Saturn Vue

All lights work except rear brake lights. The brake light in the window works. Flashers work, blinkers, taillights. Already checked fuses, brake pedal switch, bulbs. Friend took wire from middle brake light and spliced into it and made all brake lights work. Problem was didn't check blinkers etc before leaving. Now if brake pedal is applied and you turn on blinkers they come on like hazard lights, if you just turn on blinkers its like they barely have power, dim. Sometimes when using blinker wit

I just changed my rotors and brakes in the front thought it will solve the issue but not. any suggestions?

Brake lights my brake lights stopped working on my 2003 vw passat about a wk ago and i checked all the bulbs and they all work fine. what else do i need to look at to see why my brake lights are not working? is there a fuse i need to look at and if so what number is it in the fuse box? thanks


Yes, check the fuses. It should tell you which it is on the fuse box cover. Or you could just pull all the fuses out. Also you may have a loose earth connection. ... 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Say i'm using my right blinker and apply the brake, my left brake light will go out. and if i'm using my left blinker my right brake light will go out, but 3rd brake light works fine. and all 3 work fine with no blinkers in use. took the steering wheel off thinking it was the switch, but when i took off the wheel i noticed a gray, gray/black stripe, dark blue, and a pink wires look liked they were ripped out. i looked up these wires and the go to cruise control, could this be the problem?

I have brake light issues. I got pulled over because only the middle brake light worked. I pulled the assemblies and noticed some pretty charred looking sockets so i replaced those. Now I have perfect lighting when headlights are off, but as soon as the headlights come on the lights go haywire. They all work except the drivers side brake light. but if i turn it onto auto lights the driverside tailights dont work at all. I dont think its a ground or wire because they all work at one time.

I have a 1998 S70 Volvo, it has 156,000 miles, the check engine light came on last week and it is skipping really bad while idling. Seems to also be using a lot more gas and smells funny. I had a friend at work to change the spark plugs but he said the wires looked fine and so did the distributer cap. It is still skipping and smells very strong of gas. Does this sound like something that is going to be expensive to repair?

None of my guages (gas, speed,temp.) on my dash, work on my 1998 Dodge Caravan. Not a constant problem, just random. The brake light and check engine light are on. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?


Oops. The brake light if on should be investigated first. The fluid level, is it low?\015\012\015\012Also, if the check engine light is on, the codes should be read on an OBD-II scanner to get a clue as to what is wrong.\015\012 ... 1998 Dodge Caravan

Own a Mazda B2600I, 2.6l. The brake lights+tail lights stopped working, and fuse kept blowing. Then the truck died as a was driving down the road. Replaced fuel pump since it didn't seem to be pumping, still wouldn't start from crank. Don't have spark on plugs (thought it was from all the starter gas I had tried) but distributor turns. About to try replacing ignition control module because it has power on off position but none during on/cranking engine. Anyone have other ideas or experience?

I have a 2003 Pontiac Montana (AWD). The Brake Lights were working fine before the brakes were replaced. Took the vehicle in for inspection and the brake (all) lights were out. Replaced the fuse and the brake lights worked. Drove to the inspection station and the Brake Lights this time stayed on and then stopped working altogether. Does anyone have any idea on where I should look first to resolve this problem?

I have a 97 Honda Accord. We just replaced the lens since it was broken, the light stilled worked, however since we changed the lens, it works except we we are actually pressing on the brake pedal. Whats wrong and can we fix it our selves? I have a 97 CRV and the brake lights won't work. The fuse keeps blowing. I have had a mechanic tear it apart until he gave up. He thought it was the brake switch and we replaced it, but the fuse soon blew again. He thought it was the cruise control module,

My left brake light and brake light over the tailgate stopped working on my 2008 Aspen. I replaced the bulb on the light over the tailgate and it works fine now. However, I also replaced the bulb on the left side and it still does not work. All other bulbs on the left and right side are working. I tried to clean the contact points in the left brake light socket, but still no luck. Any thoughts?

Brake lights??? I have a 94 ford explorer and my right brake light wont work. Well, it works, but only most of the time. Everytime I go take a driving test, it won't work so I end up going to an auto shop and it will work perfectly when they look at it. The diagnostic told me that I needed a new multi function switch, whisch cost 600 dollars( I paid 800 for the SUV) and I cannot believe it. I went to buy a brake light switch and the guy told me that the wire on the light plug was cut and needed

My 2001 Astro van does not have brake lights, the top led brake light works, but the others do not. The turn signals/parking lights work, no brake lights. Where should I start looking? Could this be at the switch or is it more likely a wiring problem after the led brake light, but before the main brake lights?


The problem is probably your turn signal switch. I know it sounds weird, but the brake lights work through the switch. If the third brake light works, then the brake light switch works, the turn signal switch works the lower brake lights. It's the sw ... 2001 Chevrolet Astro

I have a 99 Suburban. About a week ago, the two main brake lights and the all hazard lights stopped working. The upper center brake light still works. If the hazard light button is in the on position, the turn signals do not work so there is no blinker activity. When the hazard light button is in the off position, all blinkers work. I have removed the trailer light harness T and replaced the bulbs, and fuses just in case. I started looking for bad/broken wires but haven't found anything.


Hi! Please do check the turn signal/hazard relay. They may be corroded or may need replacement. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! ... Chevrolet Suburban 1500

I am troubleshooting brake light issues I am having. All three brake lights do not turn on when brakes are pressed. I have already changed the fuse and brake lights, still nothing. The reverse and signal lights work fine. Now, I am trying to locate the brake switch, but not real sure what I am looking for. I tried following the shaft of the brake pedal, and there doesn't seem to be a switch there? Where could it possibly be or even look like?
