Will the stop lamps go off if you disconnect the wiring at the stop lamp switch?

no
Chevy Mechanic: Mike S., Chevy Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Odd indeed. Let me get a wiring diagram. BRB

Chevy Mechanic: Mike S., Chevy Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I honestly have no idea on how to diagnose this. You might want to retrieve the codes from the bcm though.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: Mike S., Chevy Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I can give you the wiring diagrams since I had already looked them up.

If you have retrieved any codes or are going to I'll hang on, if not, I think I will have to opt out.

What about the junction block in the rear if u disconnect there do they go out? I had one that had shorted internally

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I did disconnect the junction block and still have brake lights according to my Tech II scanner, I did notice yesterday that the lights come on as soon as the key is turned to the acc position, according to the schematic there is a acc input on x1 so I removed it from the connector but still have lights on

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The lights are on I just use the tech so I don't have to keep going to the back of the truck to check the status.

It is good you have a tech 2, if you do a total dtc check what codes do you have in what module

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: Reggie Whiddon,

I am pulling up the wiring now we are fixing this today!!! You say lights are on with key in the acc position? And u have disconnected the bcm, switch and even the joint connextor at rear?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: Reggie Whiddon,
 replied 2 years ago

Okay the stop lamp relay I asked you about earlier, is integral to the underhood fuse box. Which you say you have replaced. You also stated you replaced the BCM, did you perform thr programming for the BCM? If it were not programmed with correct rpo, could cause issue.

And lastly with everything hooked up, if you started with switch, bcm, fuse box joint connector what can you unplug and make these lights go off? I would like to know that and the results of a total system dtc check of all modules.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The bcm was programmed by Vin and rpo. Full system dtc scan shows no codes. The only thing that turns out the lights is unplugging x1 or x3 at bcm.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help.

Need a volt meter to test not a test light

Have you check for for voltage at the brake switch terminal C? Terminal D should read O volts when the pedal is pressed?

This is how the system work (When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts open and B+ is interrupted to the body control module)

Please get back with me

Thank you
