    Tail lights

    Ive got a 01 s-10 blazer and for some reason the brake lights quit working but the third brake light still works.Ive checked the bulbs, fuses, tail light wires and every thing looks fine as far as I see and I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or if anyone else has had this problem

    I had a ground wire just for the taillights on my pickup truck. It was grounded to the frame rail near the drivers side tail light. Did you also check that?

    brake lights and third brake lights are on different circuits... if your fuses are infact good its possibly a bad ground... however it could be a loose connector at the brake switch or a bad brake switch... do your turn signals work at all, or running lights?

    Yes all of the other lights work fine and I checked as much of the wire I could see but the mechanic at a car lot I paint for overheard me talking about it and he said hes had the same problem with allot of the s-10s coming through and hesaid that the problem was in the blinker switch but I think that would effect the turn signals but he said every onehes had to fix he had to change that switch idk ill eventually get it parked long enough to actually take it apart and spend some more time with it.
