Failure Date: 05/12/2012

The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The contact stated that the traction control warning light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who inspected the vehicle. The failure was located at the tail light assembly wires. The tail light wiring was wired incorrectly and caused the brake light and the traction control to fail. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was repaired. The failure and the current mileage was 123,401. Updated 6/6/12 the consumer believed during assembly at the gm factory, the tail light/stop light wiring was improperly routed. On the left side, the wiring harness was wrapped around a mounting bolt and the right side, the wires were pinched between the sheet metal of the vehicle's body and the housing of the tail light assembly. Over time, the insulation on the wires became worn and caused a short and loss of brake light function. Updated 06/11/12.

Rear brake lights will occasionally not function properly. At times only the center safety lift will be functional while the two rear brake lights will not work. I am told that the problem is in the multi-function switch. This week I also seen a Chevrolet trail blazer with the same problem. I have not had the problem fixed, yet.

Brake lights do not work if the turn-signal/bright light/wiper lever is moved slightly forward of its normal position. After using the turn signals or bright lights the brake lights will not work unless the lever is pulled up toward the driver. The car has not been involved in any accident, nor has the turn signal lever been removed in the five years I have owned the vehicle. There are no other electrical problems with the vehicle and the failure seems to be a result of design. The light on the rear deck still works. Driver may not be aware of the failure and a rear-end collision is possible as a result of sudden braking. Problem was just discovered and has not yet been repaired.

Turn signals and brake lights fail to function properly. When daytime running lights are on the brake lights fail to brighten when the brake pedal is depressed. I looked up a forum type website "mymonte. Com" and found numerous complaints about this problem. All said that it is a faulty turn signal switch relating specifically to 95-99 year models of Chevrolet Monte Carlo. A few of these have had repeated occurrences. It is a fairly common complaint with many Monte Carlo owners.
