What could be the cause of the tail lights of a 1995 Ford Taurus to not work in normal operation but work when the brakes are pressed?
There are 2 filiments in those bulbs. One for tails/turn and the other for brake lights. Try replacing one bulb first. I think there are two offest tits on the shaft of those bulbs. Be sure you insert it correctly into the socket. For that matter check to see if they are in correctly now.
On a 91 Camry should the brake lights come on as tail lights when you turn on lights or remain out until brakes are applied even if lights are turned on?
More than likely, your brake switch is fused, or stuck down.... here. when you push on the brake, the pedal taps a button to indicate that the brakes have been pressed. this button is a gate to the power provided to the tail lights, therefore, when it is pressed, they light up. this button could be stuck. disconnect the harness and see if the lights go off. if they do, replace the switch.
This is operating as intended. Brake lights are only activated when the brake pedal is pressed, irrespective of the other lights in use. It is a safety feature so vehicles behind are aware the brakes have been applied. They are separate from the tail lights so they still give a visual indication of braking whether the other lights are on or off.
The brake pedal itself swings on a pivot when pressed, pushing a piston through the fire wall into the master cylinder. Forcing brake fluid through the brake lines into a proportioning valve, then into the brakes themselves, bringing the vehicle to a stop. As soon as the brake pedal is pressed, it activates a switch that turns the brake lights on.
The warning lights on 2003 maxima can you tell me why when i hit my brakes a warning light on the dashboard lights up the warning light looks like a headlight?
Does it have a door ajar light? If so is it functioning properly? If not try: spraying door latches liberally with WD-40, operate door a few times then spray with a good silicone spray. Although it sounds strange this has worked for me many times in solving the problem of dash lights coming onm with application of brake pedal
On my 99 Honda passport the Blower and Turns signals and Cruise control all stopped working at the same time The fuses appear to be fine What else can it be?
Mine did the same thing. I was told it was an alarm and control relay unit? My mechanic directed me to the dealership. Said it possibly could cost up to $400. My cruise works if the headlights are off, but not when on. When car is off and while driving and brakes are pressed parking lights come on in the front when headlights are off. Mine did the same thing. I was told it was…
