BRAKE LIGHTS

1969 Pontiac GTO

Brakes problem
1969 Pontiac GTO V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 94,000 miles

My brake lights on my 1969 GTO are not working. This happened several months age. I replaced a flasher unit and the lights worked. Now the brake lights are out again. All of my park lights, turn signals and flashers work. I even changed the brake light switch. Ideas?

I have this problem on my 67 all the time.

The sockets are not grounding to the housings good enough.

You may have a bad turn signal switch. Check for power at the brake light socket with a test light that is well grounded. If you don't have power there the problem is either in the wiring or the turn signak switch.
