    New Brake Lights / Stop Lights in Hamilton

    About brake / stop lights:New brake lights Waikato

    Brake lights (or stop lights) are an important safety feature in modern vehicles. They light up when you press down on your brake pedal, signalling other drivers that you are about to stop.

    Most cars have three brake lights. Two of these lights sit on either side of the car next to your tail lights. The third one is called the high-mounted stop light and it is located in the center and is often visible through the rear-view window.

    When the brake pedal is pressed down, the brake switch is activated, which completes a circuit and sends power to the brake lights.

    Having a functional pair of brake lights is vital to your safety, as it warns other drivers that your car is slowing down or coming to a stop. For this reason, they are required to work properly in order to pass a Warrant of Fitness / WOF.

    Causes of brake lights not working correctly:

    There are several things that can cause your car’s brake lights not to work correctly. Below are some of the most common causes:

    • Blown fuse – If a fuse blows, the electrical connection between the battery and lights will be severed. This will prevent the lights from working at all.
    • Blown bulb – The bulbs in the brake lights can also blow. This will cause the light with the blown bulb not to work.
    • Faulty wiring – If the brake switch or wiring between the brake pedal and bulb is damaged, electricity will not be able to reach the brake light.
    • Faulty brake light switch – sometimes the brake light switch can get stuck in the on position permanently meaning that you brake lights stay on constantly while driving. On some cars this will flatten the car battery with the key off.
