1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #3

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

My 97 Chevy Monte Carlo has had no lower brake lights for some time. I had my car checked by an auto electrician and was told that the problem was so severe and it would probably never find the source of the problem. I am very concerned with this issue being it may cause serious injury to my self/family or others. As I drive on the road I notice many autos of the same year and type have the same problem so I know its not only my vehicle.I thought it could of been the factory installed security system so I had it uninstalled to come to the fact that it was not the security system after all. Please help with this issue. This is my only source of transportation as I am disabled and cannot afford another vehicle. I have put constant repairs on this car, fuel inj tank, etc. Again please address this urgent issue.

The turn signal/brake tail lights fails to work properly. The dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem. The cause was not determined.

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

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 "" 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.
