Your back light switch is stuck or out of adjustment. In most cases it will be located some where along the shifting linkage.

Either the switch that turns the backup lights on is out of adjustment, or has failed in the on position.

Check the brake switch located on your brake pedal shaft. May have to be replaced.

First shut the vehicle off, then set the parking brake, then start it back up, the lights should remain off. Once you release the e-brake the lights will come back on.

Red lights flashing on a school bus mean remain stopped until they are turned off.

You must remain stopped until the red lights stop flashing.

if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.

In the few rare cases that you would need the lights off while engine on, you can lift the parking brake one click. It won't engage the brake but will cut the lights. If you mean the headlights, this is a safety feature of the Chevrolet and many other cars and should remain intact. There is no switch to throw to shut these off.

A failed switch is a common cause.

1. You may not want all lights on, so with a parallel circuit you can turn some off while the others remain lit (you cannot do this with series) 2. If one of the lights go out, the others will remain lit

In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.

A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.

Bad brake switch. Typically located at the top of the brake pedal.

Brake light switch needs adjusting or replacement.

Defective or mis-adjusted brake light switch

Either you have a bad clock spring, located in the steering wheel, or you have a bad collision sensor.

There is either a leak still evident in the system or air in the system or the E-brake is on slightly.

I would suspect the transmission range sensor / neutral safety switch.This has been known to cause all sorts of strange electrical related problems.See "Related Questions" below for more

Tree lights have parallel circuits because the rest of the lights will remain on if one goes out. Imagine trying to find the one bad bulb on a string of lights if one were to go out. This way, only one light goes out, so it can easily be found and replaced. Hope this helps!

Wire them in parallel. These are not Christmas tree lights. From the switch, all black wires together. All white neutrals together.

The biggest advantage is that solar power saves money and helps the environment. Additionally, since the lights do not require electricity, they remain functional during power outages.

you need to change the low beam relay. it is overheating which turns lights off. when it has cooled the lights will come back on. this relay is in the fuse box and they are not expensive to buy.easy to change as a fuse
