No Brake lights

Postby Stu-Art on Mon Jan 18, 2021 11:16 pm

Hi, after connecting my trailer yesterday I went and checked the lights only to find i have no brake lights on the ute. The fuse in the engine bay is good and there is power going to it. The globes are also good, I didn't think to check the power there until just now but assume there isn't any otherwise they should work. Any suggestions on what it could be? I did just hard wire a dashcam but that's nowhere near the same circuit, and I'm not sure how long my brakes have been out.

Check ALL of your fuses. Not just the lighting ones. Sometimes another fuse will cause things not to work, even though it is listed as something entirely different. If they are all ok, check for Battery voltage at brake light switch on your pedal

Fixed it, it was the switch. The piston was stuck in so I just pushed it a few times and it popped out, I'll get them to change it at the service.
