Change the brake bulb. It sounds like one of the filamits is broken in the bulb. Could also be wiring crossed.
There is a sensor under the brake pedal. These sensors sometimes go bad, and cause your brake lights to become useless, though your brakes work perfectly. This has happened to my in my 89 Accord, and was fixed rather easily.
how did u pull the sensor thing off
I should have asked this question: On an E320, what causes the center brake light to constantly be illuminated when the headlight switch is turned to ON. And 've got the . The left side brake bulb was loose. Once I tightened it up, the center light went off.
they are not brake lights they are fog lights and they turn on because it is for the car behind to see you
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?
Check the ground wire to the tail lights.
Often this type of behavior is caused by a bad ground for the lighting circuit. Check the ground circuit for the brake lights.
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.
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.
Most likely a fuse or a bad ground.
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
Fuse, wiring, bulbs
Check the fuses and the bulbs.
Check the bulbs - they are double filamented smaller for brake lights and larger for tailights. Check sockets for power and ground
In this order only. Turn engine off. Depress parking brake. Turn engine on. Lights will turn off. To turn lights back on relase parking brake.
Break lights come on when you step on the break, they do not come on when the head lights are turned on.
in dash lights
Turn off engine. Depress Emergency Brake. Turn on engine. The lights will not turn on until the E-Brake is released. Get in the habit of setting the E-Brake and you will have less of an issue with the auto headlights. I don't think there is an easy way to bypass the auto headlights entirely. The headlight switch is essentially, "just for show."
I have run into the same thing with this kind of car. On the steering column at the top they have a switch that will turn the running lights on or turn them off. check the switch you may have hit it and turn it on.
You have blown a fuse, look for an acc. fuse out.
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.
I take it you mean day-time running lights? Place the parking brake on the first notch will turn them off and not apply the brake.
well i had the same problem on my da check your brake switch its located on the bottom of the brake pedal
Try applying parking brake
blowen fuse or lights check fuse first
Just pull the parking brake up one click. It won't engage the brake, but it bypasses the headlights.
I dont know because i dont have a FORD Check your brake light switch on the back of your brake pedal for adjustment.
