Hi,

I have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 2WD.

The problem I am having is that the rear left Brake Light will not work when the brake is pressed. To further complicate the problem, this only happens when the headlights are on! When the headlights and running lights are on, the left brake light will not work. The other side and top lights work. When the headlights/running lights are off, the left brake light works!

Ok I have replaced all the bulbs in the rear of the truck. I just read about the brake light switch underneath the pedal today and will check that when I get home today. Any other suggestions? I was thinking fuse, but then the other lights would not work either.

Gotta get this fixed ASAP! Keep getting pulled over by police. Starting to get annoying and I am bound to finally get a fix it ticket soon if they keep pulling me over!

I have donated so hopefully that will speed things up.

Thanks,

BP

Hi
Check the ground for left light. If ground bad brake light will ground through tail light element but when light on no ground.

Black wire will come out of harness to light and it splices into black wire from right side. Lost groud maybe at socket or at splice.
