if they work loose, the tabs that keep them from shifting are broken. replace them. its called a "fitting kit" if you get them from the dealer. theyre inexpensive and simple to replace.

Did the controls themselves stop working or just the lights behind the control panel? First thing would be to check the fuses that control these accessories. If the fuses are okay, I would then suspect the wiring behind the dash to have come disconnected or loose.

You need to bleed the brakes. Loosen the bleeder valve on one of the calipers and have someone press and hold the brake pedal. Tighten the valve and release the brake pedal. (If you let off of the pedal with the valve loose, air will be drawn into the system and make the problem worse.)

Why does your brake light not work when the headlights are on?

Shouldn't have anything to do with it. The brake lights are on a completely different circuit than the headlights. If your brake lights are not working check the switch on the brake pedal. Before you do that check the fuse first. If the fuse is all right it is probably the brake light switch which is bad. Check the bulbs to see if they are burned out. If you can't tell, replace them anyway. If the Brake switch is good and the fuse is good, you may have a loose wire, or a bad wire.
