Ok, so I got pulled over yesterday because little did I know, that my brake lights aren't coming on. The third light comes on, but neither of the tail lights do. They will come on if the headlights are on, but no more than that. I checked all the fuzes, and they look good. I haven't taken an in depth look yet...but does anyone have any ideas?

2001 L, yes, i searched about the problem already

thanks

itsa short .. check all the wires in the rear.
my excel had that prob and it was a wire that was fried for some reason just make sure all of your connections are good and not cut or worn

and also check the button under your brake.. that might be worn too.

ok, so i don't know why, but it was the bulbs. we took one out and tested it (both parts) and it worked fine. it really pissed me off. oh well, at least it wasn't something major.

Mine di the same thing once, just burned out both Brake light bulbs.
It's been fine since I replaced them.

Before you jump to any conclusions, check to see if the bulbs are burned out and/or if there are any fuses that are blown. If so, replace them. If neither of those two unfortunate conditions exist, then check to see if the stoplight switch ( the switch located underneath the brake pedal ) is working. I will say this though: it is very rare for two brake light bulbs to burn out at the same time. It is also a possibility that the headlight switch is damaged.
