    Brake light on but all lights working

    Probably a pretty easy fix but when I have my lights on it still says break lights aren't working. As you can see from photos though all lights are working would this be the break light switch causing it? Trying to figure out what it would be before I start trying things thanks.

    Does it only come on if the headlights are on? I'd start by cleaning the bulb sockets in the tail lights.

        Check the brake light switch at the pedal it might be loose or just has a problem with connection

          This is a pretty common issue on these cars. Check what has been mentioned above, and add the contacts in the actual bulb housing to the list.

            Dont waste your time with any of this if you have already cleaned the contacts.

            The most likely issue is the connections to the check panel relay.

            Take it apart and clean the connections with pipe cleaners and contact cleaner.

            if you don't know where your check panel relay is, its on a bracket in front of the antenna, under the trunk liner (unless Vert, then left interior side panel)

            If you dont know what contact cleaner is, go to your local auto parts store and ask, they will have it.

            99% of the time, this is a quick, easy and pretty much permanent fix for this issue.

            Best of luck!
