This is usually a grounding problem. Either an insufficient ground to the assy or a positive to ground problem. As you mention the brake lights work with the lights off, it will probably be related to a problem with the "running lights" system. As you mention only a problem with the passenger rear, I would check for a poor ground related to that light assy or possibly one of the bulbs' internal filaments in that assy touching each other. Or possibly a socket failure at that assy. Good Luck
Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights. Assuming you are not refering to the tail lights, or marker lights, which are supposed to come when the head lights are turned on. Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.
Check the ground wire to the brake lights.
yes, they do
Assuming you have the lights turned off, you are seeing the brake lights. They are more than likely on because the brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment.
On a toyota tacoma 2003 SR5 when the tail lights are turned on the brake lights come on and when the tail lights are of the brake lights work just fine what could be the problem. If the truck has a trailer plug, inspect the plug and plug wiring for damage and corrosion.
Bulbs blown/Brake lamp switch inoperative
Answerwire shortage!Brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment.
Check bulbs Check fuse for parking/tailights Check brake light fuse
Break lights come on when you step on the break, they do not come on when the head lights are turned on.
check and/or replace brake pedal switch.
the parking brake may be stuck and that causes the brakes to lock up completely, and the horn and lights will stick work if the parking brake is stuck.
There's a switch that the brake pedal engages when pressed that makes the brake lights go on. this switch may be stuck.Or the peddle staying on switch
Brake Light switch works without the ignition on. unplug the brake pedal switch and check to see if the brake lights are still on..switch could be defective
My Brake tail Lights Stay on when my car is complete turned off and my lights are off to.
Check the STOP fuse in the passenger compartment Check the switch on the pedestal of the brake pedal.
Since the break lights turn on when the head lights are activated, the problem is probably in the wiring of your break lights. Someone may have accidentally disconnected the wires of your break lights to your head lights.
The tail lights and the stop lights work off of different circuits. The stop lights work when the brake pedal is depressed while the tail lights work when the light switch is turned on. Look for a burnt fuse or a bad connection.
That would tell me that your battery is not dead because you do not need the car turned on for your brake lights to operate
Yes, it has brake lights.
In my experience, when brake lights remained on even after stopping and shutting off the car.....many times it was the brake stoplight switch, usually located on the brake pedal arm up above the pedal.
Open the front passenger door and the fuse panel is in the side of the passenger seat.
Probably a bad or mis-adjusted brake light switch
bad connection/short or burnt out brake bulb. Check the harness both under the steering wheel and at the lights.
if you have no brake lights it will most likely be one of 3 things a blown fuse bad ground wire or under the brake pedal you will find a small switch that the pedal hits when you press on the pedal the switch does go bad but is easily replaced and usually not too expensive
