Having problems with your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ?

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 4wd, and both of my brake lights stopped working, but the light above the bed of the truck still works. I have checked all the fuses, changed the bulbs, and checked the brake switch, and changed that just to check. I still cant get the brake lights to work. I traced the power and it works all the way to the junction box, but not out to the brake lights. So I bought a new junction box, and I am still not getting any brake lights. Any idea's on what else it can b

Well it sounds like you have a short fro junction block to taillights , make your own wire from where you know you have power to brake lights . and that will tell you where to go.
I am having the exact same problem on my 03 Silverado. Replaced brake pedal switch, fuses, bulbs and the 4 way junction box as well. It is getting power to the box. How could the wiring harness randomly go bad to both sides?

Brake lights will not illuminate when brake is pressed. However, the signals work along with evening lamps as well. They do illuminate with the light switch on, but wont get brighter when I hit the brake. I checked the wires from the fuse box through to the tail lights, nothing seems to be cut. Fuse is still good. I tested the fuse with a test light, and there is current. The brake switches spring in and out fine as the brake moves back and forth. They dont seem to get stuck. I replaced 2 of

1995 S-10 Blazer. I don't have any brake lights. My turn signals work. I put in a new brake switch on the brake pedal but I still have no brake lights. I didn't see any type of adjustment on the brake switch. I can't find any fuse in the fuse box blown. I checked the bulbs and didn't see any bad fillaments. It has cruise control. I know the turn signal and brake lights were on the same fuse on the older cars, but I'm not to familiar with the newer cars. Thank you for the help.

I have a 1997 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab Stepside with 5.4L and factory towing package. On the factory trailer wiring plug I am not getting power for turn signals or brake lights. Running lights and brake controller work fine. I have checked fuses, and one was blown, which I replaced to get running lights working. But I still do not have brake or turn signals at the plug. Is there something else I can check before tracing the lines?


No, check the wiring in the rear going to hitch plug, they may have rotted or broke,if lights work on the truck then i would say its wiring,test wiring moving backward until you get power, this way you can pinpoint break location area, good luck, ho ... 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
