The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.
Possible ground issue at the taillights.
they are not brake lights they are fog lights and they turn on because it is for the car behind to see you
the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.
Often this type of behavior is caused by a bad ground for the lighting circuit. Check the ground circuit for the brake lights.
Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal
THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS NOT PUTTING OUT BATTERY WHENEVER THE BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. CHECK TO SEE IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON, THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHIFT IT OUT OF PARK. IF NO BRAKE LIGHTS, THEN IT WON'T SHIFT OUT OF PARK. IF THIS IS THE CASE, THEN REPLACE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
Is it the taillights or the brake lights? If taillights it may be a wiring problem, If brake lights check the switch on the brake pedal
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
Fuse 7 controls the brake lights. It should be a red 10amp fuse.
It is not necessarily the fuse. It could be the switch on the brake that is not closing the circuit.
ummm... your brake lights should ALWAYS work whether your headlights are on or not, that's how people behind you know you are stopping.
are you sure it is the brake lights and not the tail lights. if it is the brake lights you most likely have a short some where. go to a auto eletrican It is the brake lights which turn on. Short in the switch or the wiring?
