A short would blow a fuse. I would check the flasher which is under the eash on the drivers side. The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher.
Blown fuse, broken wire, or short in your running lights circuit. you may also not have dash lights. Brake lights, T/S are on a separate circuit. Hope this helps, Mike
On the 1979 B200 Sportsman V8 if the brake pedal makes all signal lights come on and hazards and flashers do not work on their own, it could be the flasher, but the culprit could also be a burned out bulb or a short in the wiring.
Brake lights could stay on in a 1999 Dodge Stratus because of a short in the wiring. If the headlamps are off and the brake lights are still on, check the wiring for the brake lights that is inside the trunk. Sometimes cargo in the trunk can interfere with the lights.
Answer Usually when the flasher blinks rapidly it's about finished. Try replacing the signal light flasher and see what happens. If you still don't have Brake Lights start looking for a short.
A short, or a severed wire all together. Get a tester that lights up, check it that way :)
There is a short somewhere in the wiring.
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?
I'm not exactly sure which fuse it is, but it doesn't sound like a fuse to me. I would check the switch on the pedal, just simply short acrost it from terminal to terminal with a screwdriver, if the brake lights come on, the switch on the pedal is bad, if they don't then it probably is a fuse.
You have a short, you also may have to check your bulbs i found on one of my blinkers the bulb was faulty, i replaced it and everything was all fine again.
because the power comes from another source. the brakes have a switch located on the pedle that feeds the brake lights the signals are feed by there switch.J.R. Your light bulb's probably burnt out. Just take off the cover and screw a new one in there. Or you could have a short. If changing the bulb doesn't work, have an electrician take a look at it.
Back up system fuse burned out and the tranmission has a lock out for park. Try changing the fuse and looking for a short in the brake lights or turn signals.
there may be a short get longer wires
sound like you have a bad ground or a short within the electical system
If the brake lights do not work on Chevy Venture van 2000, try to disconnect the brake switch. Then short the two contacts of the connector to check if the brake lights are now working.
If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires. Another cause for this could be that the tail light bulbs are burned out. Most vehicles have more than one bulb inside the tail lights to control different lights at the same time.
Check the brake light switch. It's under the dash, connected to the brake pedal. If it's adjusted wrong or faulty, it could cause the brake lights to stay on. If you can use a meter and tell that the brake light switch is ok, next test the turn signal switch. Sometimes they short out and leave the brake lights on. You'll have to pull the steering wheel to do that.
Because something's wrong, of course. What it could be... bad switch, break/short in the wiring, bad fuse or relay, or even just bad bulbs.. chances are, your car uses dual filament bulbs for the brake lights, where they'll function as both marker lights (with one filament active) and brake lights (with both filaments energized).
i would dare say u have a dead short or ground problems or wire rubn with brake wire
If you have a plug for trailer lghts it is probably a short circuit in the socket.
Jammed brake switch or short in the circuit.
Check for a short in your wiring harness or connectors under the dash. Particularly in the vicinity of your brake pedal. It could be rubbing on some wires.
Does it actually engage the brakes, or just the brake lights? There should be no possible way for the steering wheel to actuate the braking system, but a short in the wiring somewhere in the steering column could be causing both rear signal lights or brake lights to come on.
If the brake lights stay on when the car is not running on most vehicles, including the 1994 Dodge Intrepid, there is probably a short somewhere in the wiring to the brake lights. The first place to investigate this problem would be the wires along the firewall that control the brake lights. Also, check the brake light switch above the brake pedal.
If all the fuses and bulbs are new and work properly, the lights could be malfunctioning due to a short in the wiring. The wiring may also be damaged or burned out in places.
