Check for a bad ground circuit at the rear tial lights.
Because you have to eat french fries with ketchup!
Fog lights are in the front; they are commonly referred to as "brights" because they are the brighter of the two standard headlights. Brake lights are in the rear; they light up when pressure is applied to the brakes or when the car is in park or reverse.
It sounds like a blown fuse or a bad head light switch
Sounds like the brake light switch is defective.Sounds like the brake light switch is defective.
What fuse is for the 2005 Ford mustang Rear Brake lights?
My Brake tail Lights Stay on when my car is complete turned off and my lights are off to.
First you need to understand that most, if not all, vehicle [autos, trucks, and trailers] rear lighting systems have both tail light bulbs and brake light bulbs, OR a single bulb on each side [right and left] that each have two filaments [what glows when electricity is applied]. The tail lights are supposed to be on when the headlights, or parking lights, in the towing vehicle are turned on. The separate brake light bulb, or brake light filament in the dual filament bulbs is only supposed to turn on when the brake pedal is depressed, and the towing vehicle brake lights are on. I suspect that what you are calling brake lights are actually the tail lights. To check this out, run some tests. Have an assistant sit in the vehicle and do the following on your command: 1. Apply brakes by pressing on the brake pedal. The brake lights should turn on. 2. With foot OFF of the brake, turn on the headlights. The trailer tail lights should turn on. 3. With the headlights on, have the assistant depress the break pedal. Even though the tail lights are already on, the brake lights should come on also, causing the trailer lights to brighten noticeably 4. While you're checking, have the assistant turn the ignition key to on, and one at a time test the left and right turn signals. Again, I think what you think are brake lights, are actually the tail ligts.
try turning off your headlights
somebody put a single filiment bulb in a dual receptacle socket or visa versa chech rear bulbs first
The brake lights are accessed through the rear hatch. Find the panel on the rear sides of the car. Pop out the panel and access the brake lights. Replace the bulbs.
the turn signal switch is probably bad
Your parking/ side light/headlights switch not only rotates but also pulls out towards you thus switching your rear fog lights on. simply push switch in the way.
it would be the brake light switch about 20 dollars at autozone
I would check the rear bulbs. I just had this issue and it ended up my brother had used the wrong bulb, and odd enough it caused the brake lights to stay on with headlights. When headlights were not on and you applied the brakes the dash would light and brake lights worked. Strange, HUH? I must admit before this revelation, I replaced headlight switch and brake switch, with no avail.
No , the rear brake lights do not turn on when you use your parking brake , just the brake light on your dash is supposed to come on
I had this problem and it was a short in one of the back rear brake lights. One of the bulbs was not screwed in correctly and it was causing the brake light to stay on when the headligst are on. We removed all bulbs and inserted them again, making sure they were tight. This fixed our issue with a dodge 2003 durango.
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.
The rear lights of your car will still on even if your car was off because the switch was turned on and it will still remain on until the battery's out. Another possibility, if the headlight switch is off and the ignition switch is off, the brake light switch may be out of adjustment or broken and what you're seeing is the brake lights on.
You have some problems with electrical connections. Most likely the ground wire of the tail lights. Also, the left light may be burned out or have a POSITIVE wire connection problem.
There is a switch on top of the steering column dead center. You must have accidently turned it on. It's a parking light.
No, the license plate light is wired in with the rear tail lights, not the brake lights.
Bulbs blown, or corroded sockets.
Check bulbs, fuses and brake switch in that order.
Check the fuse for parking/tailights Check the bulbs - they are double filamented with the larger for tailights Check for power and ground at light sockets
