No brakelights

Post by dbcox on Sun Sep 14, 2008 1:19 pm

I dont have any brakelights unless i am at a complete stop and mash very hard on the pedal. They are adjusted right and i have discs in the front. Im thinking maybe one of my switches is going or has went bad. What do yall think? What a Face Oh yeah its , my 74 standard

I would say it's a switch. I had the same problem a while back and a new switch fixed it.

I went ahead and ordered a couple. One is fried, Plug connector and all was rusted and coroded and pulled apart. They work alittle better getting the worst one out of the way. Two new ones will fix it i hope. What a Face

Seems like 90% of the time it's usually a switch or a ground that's bad when you lose them both.

I had similar issues with my '65. Ground is a big problem with these. The housing that the bulbs go into have to ground to the car body in order for the lights to work. I found that as I moved this housing around, the lights would come on and go off. I clean up the contact points especial on the little tab at the top of the silver light housing and finally got them all working.
