Problem Solved: The previous owner installed the incorrect tail/turn/stop light bulbs. The bulbs had only one filiment instead of two. All is working perfectly now. Don't go to Walmart to find auto parts. Go to a REAL part store!
try e brakes..turn the e brakes on and see if it turns off.if it does then you have suto headlights
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.

Fog lights are in the front; they are commonly referred to as "brights" because they are the brighter of the two standard headlights. Brake lights are in the rear; they light up when pressure is applied to the brakes or when the car is in park or reverse.
You probably have a rusted or disconnected ground wire to the running lights and side markers.
Hmmmm... The first response is which bulb?Gotcha covered with the related questions below, from headlights to tail lights to high-mount brakes lights...
They are either the wrong bulbs or one of the filaments is burned out. The bulbs should have two filaments. One is illuminated when the lights are on. The other is brighter when the brakes are used.
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.
It is likely that you have lost a master fuse or fusible link. The headlights are nearly always powered directly from the battery through a fusible link or large, under hood fuse.
IT'S PROBABLY JUST A PROBLEM WITH THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BEHIND THE DASH.
Not if headlights are reqired by law.
Check the fuses
check the fuses - there is no fuse for the headlights.
Fog lights are only accessable when headlights are on; once headlights are on, pull shaft/stalk out to turn on fog lights.
Where is the fuses for the brakes lights Buick Rivera 1970
Either the bulbs are out, there is a grounding issue in the tail lights, or the headlight switch needs to be replaced. Do the side markers work? If no then it's probably the switch. If yes, then start checking for a bad ground wire on those tail lights.
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.
Possible ground issue at the taillights.
parking lights are in the back of ur car and headlights ar in front of ur car
The headlights could have bad bulbs or a bad fuse; the two sets of lights are on different circuits.
how do headlights operate? how do headlights operate?
splice together both stripped wires for headlights and run your projector lights to your fog lights or park lights
