Should you brake before signaling?
It’s important to flip on your turn signal before applying your vehicle’s brakes. This lets drivers behind you know why you are braking so that they can slow down behind you with enough room to stop, if necessary.
Does turn signal switch control brake lights?
When we use the turn signal switch, it cancels the brake light signal, on the side selected. If it did not, the lights would stay on and not flash. A bad turn-signal switch may interrupt the brake light circuit when it should not. A broken wire to or from the switch may also cause the lower brake-lights not to work.
Do I need a relay for brake lights?
