What does it mean when the brake lights stay on and will not go out?
It sounds like you have a faulty micro switch on the brake pedal.
Both the brake as well as headlights turn on when you turn on the lights on your 1997 Jetta GLS Brake lights stay on while driving What should you be doing?
Under the brake pedal is a brake light switch that when you press the pedal it hits it and makes your lights come on..sometimes when they get weak the pedal depresses them simply from the weight of the pedal and they stay on..Have a friend get inside the truck and pull UP on the brake pedal as you look at the lights..if the brake lights go off when they pull up on it..then it is…
What would cause the rear parking brake lights to stay on and drain battery of 1992 Lumina when car is turned off?
There is a switch down at the brake pedal, It's most likely bad. This is true. There is a switch under the brake pedal that probably needs to be adjusted or replaced. I have this same problem in my 1998 mercury villager. I have not replaced or adjusted the switch...not sure the cost or how hard it is to do. However, I have found that once you are in park, if the brake lights do…
What causes the brake lights to work when the headlights are off but when you turn the headlights and running lights on the brake lights go off on a 1992 Plymouth Sundance?
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.
By depressing the parking brake only one(1) click so that it will not engage the brake, but the lever will stay down, this will disable the daytime driving lights. The parking brake indicator light will stay lit on the instrument panel however. It's simple.There is a fuse in your fuse box that you can take out and it will disable the lights. It's either fuse # 2,5,15,22, or 23. The little green light in the…
Reverse lights work and signals but brake lights will not work fuses and bulbs are working on 2001 ford expedition?
There is a round piece of soft plastic that sits on the inside of the hardware that controls the brake pedal arm. A white piece directly across from this piece apparently activates or deactivates the brake lights. This blue piece of plastic pushes in that white piece enough to make the brake lights go off. This blue piece has broken down over time. Now, if I can just find a replacement part...
It very well could be a stop light switch. It is located under the dash next to the brake pedal. Disconnect it and if the lights do go out then replace the switch. alls well with what was said but it could just be out of adjustment have some one lift up on the pedal and see if the lites go out if yes its outofadjustment
a common cause of rear lights staying on is a bad ground. Have someone watch the brake lights while you turn on the park lights. if the brake lights go out, or dim noticably, seek corroded, or broken ground wiring at or close to the tail light sockets. another easy reason is the brake switch is out of adjustment, or faulty. set your cruise control, and apply the brakes. i am not certain, but most…
When a home circuit breaker opens the lights in some rooms go off but the lights in some rooms stay on. Explain why.?
The circuit breakers in a panelboard feed separate circuits. The lights that stay on are on a different circuit than the ones that go off. To fine the circuit that feeds the lights that stay on, go to the panelboard and turn off the breakers one by one until the lights go out. This is the circuit that feeds that circuit of lights. Remember that lights and receptacles can be on the same circuit together.
Why does my 1996 Toyota Corolla start but will not go into gear. And I do not have brake lights eighter?
depending on the vehicle, most have a circuit board where the rear lights go in then on to the rear light covers.these tend to go out with time. you should pull the plug and test the wires to see if they have fire. if they dont then it will be the brake light switch located on the brake pedal under the dash. if it does have fire then it is the circuit boards.
