Electrical problem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 40000 miles
Both Brake Lights do not work Plus Top Brake Light bar.
I have searched this site extensively and here is a list of what I have already checked:
Fuses: All good (under hood & under console)
Brake Switch: Good=Cruise control disengages properly and continuity check on contacts show one set NO and one NC working properly.
Light Bulb:Good=Visually OK, Continuity check. Beeps from side of light to either contact on bottom of bulb & beeps from contact to contact.
The Tail lights, reverse lights, Hazard, and turn signal lights DO work.
This is the wife's car and she reported that this morning the A/C would not turn on. It is working for me right now, but thought I should add that.
My fuses are not numbered, but counting left to right and top to bottom that puts me on "S/Roof". The one next to it is "Stop" (under console). I arbitrarily replaced both of these fuses to eliminate them 100%.
I already checked the brake switch and gave my results in the initial post. I don't have a drawing for it so I could only tell you how it responded to a continuity check. With the plunger pointing down it seems logical to assume the top contacts are N.O. For the brake lights and the bottom set are N.C. Contacts to unlatch the cruise control.
She had her battery changed by Auto-zone about a week ago. No way of knowing how long the brake lights have been out though.
have the same problem?
