Why doesn't your 1989 240 dl passenger side brake light not work when your headlights are on?
If it works when the lights are off but not when they're on, you
probably have a grounding problem. Make sure the ground wire of the
bulb is connected solidly to the vehicle frame. Also verify that
the connectors are not corroded.
When I turn on the headlights and step on the brake the driver side brake light goes off The passenger light works fine but When I turn the headlights off the driver side brake light works fine?

Please 1999 jeep grand Cherokee why does your right brake light turn off when headlights are on?
This will happen if the ground terminal for the brakelight bulb is connected to the power side by accident. If you have a 3 wire socket or light assembly with GROUND, TAIL, and BRAKE wires two of them are wired incorrectly. When the headlights are off the brake light is finding ground thru the filaments of the headlights. Since the headlights have much heavier filaments, they provide a good ground for weaker brake light. When power is on the headlights the brake light will have power on both sides, so no current flows and it goes out.
Brake lights don't work when the brake is pushed. Work with headlights on only.?

Asked in Oldsmobile Silhouette
How do you turn off headlights in a 1998 Oldsmobile silhouette when it is running?
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.

Why do brake lights stay on when you turn headlights on on your Astra?
Why does your brake light not work when the headlights are on?
Shouldn't have anything to do with it. The brake lights are on a completely different circuit than the headlights. If your brake lights are not working check the switch on the brake pedal. Before you do that check the fuse first. If the fuse is all right it is probably the brake light switch which is bad. Check the bulbs to see if they are burned out. If you can't tell, replace them anyway. If the Brake switch is good and the fuse is good, you may have a loose wire, or a bad wire.
