The first you can do is to check the connector that connects to the Brake light circuit board. If that checks out alright then you may need to check the Circuit board itself, I seem to have noticed that this is very common amongst the Grand Am models.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Same thing happened to me and I still need to replace those connectors.

SOURCE: my rear lights do not

I would start by inspecting ALL your fuses. If they're good then you probably have a bad headlight switch -(tail lights, dash light - also run off headlight switch)

What could it be if my hazard turn signals and break lights are out I've changed the relays and the multi function switch


The hazard switch could be bad which could cause other problems such as brake lights, and turn signals not functioning.

I have a 1990 Mercury Cougar. Several problems...Blinkers, hazards, horn, and break lights are not working. However the break light in the back window comes on when the break is pressed. Checked fused and...


I am unaware of what a "CO" display is.
Now with the blinkers, hazard, horn and brake lights not working that may be the multi funtion switch (blinker switch) that is located inside the column (where the blinker lever attaches).
Obviously the blinker, hazard and horn will all work off of something in the column. Brake lights, you may think a switch on the pedal.

the brake lights do work with that switch but when you have the kind of tail lights where a turn signal light shares the same bulb as a brake light, the brake light is cancelled for the turn signal by running through the multi function switch inside the column.
The third brake light does not blink so its not on that same circuit.

I suspect there is a problem with the turn signal/ hazard switch. turn the turn signal on left or right, if it doesn't flash, grip the hazard button and gently wiggle it around, if the signals start flashing, replace the turn signal switch. The Brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch, if the 3rd brake light works, the brake switch is OK. I don't think it has anything to do with the anti theft system (at this time)

No break lights, high beams, or turn signal lights


Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

No break lights, blinkers or hazzards. I changed the fuses. That wasn't it. Still No breaks, blinkers or hazards. Where is the relay?


I would check the turn signal/ hazard flasher module, its on the brake pedal bracket, 5 wires, turn the hazards on and give the side of it a few raps with a screwdriver and see if it starts flashing. The PINK should have 12v. If that checks out good it may need the turn signal switch. At the turn signal switch there is a WHITE wire that should have 12v when the brake is depressed, then you should have 12 on the DARK GREEN and the YELLOW wires coming out. If the center high mounted light works, then the brake switch at the pedal is good.

I have a 1995 honda accord and the break lights will not go off i put a new break switch on the car and it didnt work i also checked all the fuses and dont know what it could be


it could be a turn signal relay that is stuck. do your turn signals work, I know that sounds weird but for american cars the turn signal interrupts the brake light so if ur turn signals are not working properly it might be, also there is probably a brake/hazard relay

ALL BREAK LIGHTS NOT WORKING


Have you checked your brake light fuse? If it is good do your rear turn signals work? If you have turn signal and no brake lights it is probably the turn signal switch these are a common problem and your power for your brake lights goes through your turn signal switch. Sometimes it is actually the hazard switch that melts but this can not be serviced alone. If you have no rear turn signals and no break lights it could still be the turn signal switch but is more likely to be a wiring problem in the rear usually trailer wiring T connections. Chiltons has wiring diagrams in there manuals but they are not always accurate. Let me know if I can help you further and please rate.
