    Hey I just got my car back and the running lights work, but when i step on the brakes, noting happens back there on either of them. Do they have a fuse or something? If the running lights work then why dont the brake lights work? thanks, i know nothing about it.

    i lost my brake lights once too- kept popping a fuse on my dash and my brake lights. they were on the same circuit/fuse.

    do you still have interior lights?

    there is a fuse, it could be popped, may not be on the same fuse as running lights so may not work/not work with running lights... ya know?

    if the fuse is good get a continuity tester, or test light, see if its getting power
    good luck... i hate electrical problems, sell the car lol
