1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #3

May 102007

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


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.
