The one who hits the other in the rear end is At Fault, no matter if the person in front of them has working lights are not, because by law they will say you were following to close and should of had enough distance between you and the other car to avoid the collision.
The presumption is that if you were rear ended, the other driver is at fault. The brake lights not working is a mitigating factor, but the bulk of the blame still goes with the other driver. Insurance doesn't have any relation to fault. But it coculd get you a ticket.
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.
It's a brake circuit B malfunction. So probably one of your brake lights is not working. If they are working you probably need to get the car to a shop because your anti skid system may be affected.
If the traffic signals do not work, it is to be treated as a four-way stop sign. It says so in the vehicle code.
It can be, unless your brake lights don't work.
The brake lights are NOT fused seperately, which is why it will not tell you in the handbook. The brake lights will be fused through the ABS circuit. However, if you are looking for this information i assume none of your brake lights are working. If one brake light is out it will be the bulb, look back through this section a few weeks to find out how to remove the rear light cluster. If all your brake lights are out but you are not getting an ABS fault on the display then it is a faulty brake switch. This is located behind the dash mounted near the top of the brake pedal, it is a cheap and easy to replace item. If the fuse for your brake lights was blown then it would also knock out the ABS and you would have a fault on the display and a warning light on the dash. In which case a trip to your local dealership would be in order as this would be beyond your ability to diagnose.
The brake lights are a separate circuit from the tail lights. If the bulbs and fuse checks okay, I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault.
This is indicative of an electrical fault or problem causing the failure of multiple lights. The first steps should involve checking the switches and relays. The next steps are checking the switch assembly. Had
the driver that rear ended the car. The person that rear ended will probably get hit with a following too close (if they weren't they would have noticed the other vehicle slow down or stop) and an At Fault Accident and the car that got rear ended would probably get an equipment violation for their brake lights out.
a mis adjusted brake light switch could cause that fault.
The brake lights are a separate circuit from the other lights. Check the fuses and bulbs. If fuses and bulbs are okay I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault.
Check the brake light fuse. If you have 12 volts at the brake light switch I would suspect the signal light switch is at fault.
fault brake light switch, located at the top of the brake pedal.
The flasher unit for the indicators. Pressing and releasing the foot brake for the brake lights. Turning the light switch on and of for the others. If it is not any of these then there is an electrical fault, possibly a loose connection.
Sounds like new car time! I don't believe the three problems are inter-related. Lights not working could be the fuse, switch, or bulbs. Need to test to find the fault. The AC not working could be any number of things, need to be more descriptive of circumstances/symptoms for online diagnosis. You definitely need lights, better get 'em checked out at a shop if you can't figure it out. ADDED ANSWER Yes they can actually be related. The W-body line is known to have issues with the turnsignal multi-function switch. When this switch goes, it causes you to have turn signals, but not brake lights. Since this multi-function switch also controls your low to high beams control, it is likely it went out too. Replace the one switch, and this will probly correct your problem.
Then you figure out why and repair it accordingly. Check the bulb. If that checks out, take a test light and see if you have power to it when the brake pedal is depressed. If you don't, then you probably have a wiring fault somewhere between where the wiring for the CHMSL splits off from the wiring for the other brake lights and the CHMSL itself.
You can't reset the parking light - It shows you have a fault at that time - Cure the fault and the light will go out - I have a problem with mine - I have an intermittent fault the light only comes on when the parking brake is faulty - most of the time the lights out
The brake lights propbably don't work because the brake light switch (found at the brake pedal) has failed. A problem with falcons all the way through. To check them, disconnect the switch wiring. get a length of wire with a 10A fuse in line with it. basically what your trying to do is bypass the switch. if the brake lights come on when you complet the circuit, the switch will be the fault.
Those lights stay on when the abs computer has detected a fault and set a trouble code.Those lights stay on when the abs computer has detected a fault and set a trouble code.
usually it is a fault with the brake light switch located on the brake pedal arm. there is a plastic button that sometimes disintegrates and no longer allows contact with the switch. Check that first. You can find a replacement by using a body fastener.
Short to power in the brake light circuit. Most likely, the fault is in the switch itself.
In this case, the driver who struck the vehicle (you) would probably be found at-fault; however, it's best to file a police report and make sure that there are no local exceptions for negligence, but the general rule is that if you rear end it, it's your fault. The justification is that you were not in control of the car if you allowed yourself to strike it.
It is because the brake light switch under the brake pedal is faulty. usually replacing this will solve the problem. it is designed in such a way that when the brake pedal is depressed the switch completes a circuit and the lights come on. the fault occurs when the switch closes the circuit even though the pedal is not depressed. hope this helps.
If the lights work a little but appear dim then i would suggest a dodgy earth?
That indicates there's problem with your car lights and you need to go to a car electrician
