Why don't the door locks on a 1993 Cutlass stop running until the fuse is pulled but then the brake lights don't work?
Does your car have a remote for keyless entry? I recently had to program a remote for a 1992 Cutlass Supreme. The procedure involves removing the trim on the passenger side of the trunk, near where the antenna sits on a 2 dr. Once you pull off the trim, you should see a wire with a black connector on the end, coming from the passenger compartment of the car. To program a remote, you use a piece of wire to go from this connector to a ground on the car. As long as this connection is made, the power door locks will cycle back and forth. To program a remote, you push the buttons while this cycling is going on, then unground the connection. I don't believe that this connection has anything to do with the taillights, but if your wiring bundle is chaffed somewhere, this could be grounding out the wire for the remote programming, causing your locks to cycle. One of the wires for the tailights may also be chaffed, causing the problems with them. Good luck.

1990 cutlass left brake light fails to come on does slightly blink in sync with right brake light when rear park running lights are on in order to see the left brake light blink slightly?
its a ground wire
How can you disable the daytime running lights on your 2008 Toyota RAV4 so that you can use the regular head lights only?
While the Rav4 is turned off, pull the emergency brake up one click and then start it up. This will leave the running lights off and the emergency brake will not be engaged when it is pulled up only one click.
The running lights have a bad ground.
on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that
Generally brown is used for running lights, green for right turn and brake, yellow for left turn and brake.
When my running lights are working on my trailer my turn signal lights and brake lights don't work but if running lights are off turn signal and brake lights work?
I would check the running lights for one with a short. I had the same sort of thing with my trailer and I spent way to much time troubleshooting the brake and signal wires. Turns out a running light bulb connector was grounding out on the trailer and messing it all up.
What is the problem if all running lights and tail lights work but the brake lights don't on a 2000 F-250?
check the fuse, brake lights have their own, & check the brake switch at the top of the brake pedal
Parking Brake Theory doesn't work, I even tried unplugging the fuse that is supposed to control this but that didnt appear to work either? As far as I know you can't. They are on for safety reasons. There is a switch that is conected to a hand brake. When brake is engaged (pulled up)lights should go off.
brakes and running lights have separate fuses. check the fuse then check the brake light switch under the dash
If the brake lights stay on when the car is not running on most vehicles, including the 1994 Dodge Intrepid, there is probably a short somewhere in the wiring to the brake lights. The first place to investigate this problem would be the wires along the firewall that control the brake lights. Also, check the brake light switch above the brake pedal.
Blown fuse, broken wire, or short in your running lights circuit. you may also not have dash lights. Brake lights, T/S are on a separate circuit. Hope this helps, Mike
2002 beetle brake lights are stuck on. the running lights are off. motor is off anf brake lights are still on?
the brake switch at the pedal is stuck or out of adjustment.
Fuse for parking lights probably blown.
What would cause the brake lights not to work on an 84 corvette when all of the running lights work?
BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AT TOP OF BRAKE PEDAL
If emergency brake is on 1 click it turns daytime running lights off. Pull out on emergency brake handle and see if this fixes the problem.
if it is your running lights that wont come on, your emergency brake could be on, or the sensor may be reading that it is on. this defeats the running lights. you will know this is happening because the emergency brake light will be on. if this is the case, reach under the drivers side door and with the e-brake off, wiggle the e-brake cable back and forth. the running lights should come back on… Read More
Tail lights and brake lights fuse.
Hey E==The running lights have a module which may be bad. Good luckJoe
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
The most likely cause is a bad brake light switch (if none of the brake lights illuminate) but if its only one of the brake lights, try changing the bulb. Even if they still work as running or turn lights because they have a double filament and may still work partially, but not as brake lights.
running or parking lights, or plate light, but that is singular.
The brake light switch must be broken or out of adjustment. The switch is located above the brake pedal. what if it don't cut off
What would cause no brake lights in rear when the running lights are on the vechile is Nissan sentra?
brake light switch would be most common cause
Possibly blown fuse, bad brake light switch, or blown brake light bulbs.
What should you do when the headlights and tail lights won't come on at the same time on your 1986 Honda Prelude?
My '88 Prelude Si 4WS had a short in the steering column. My "guys" pulled wires to a toggle switch that they free-placed in the coin tray. It gets hot . . . But, the running lights/brake lights work independently of the headlights!
Why would running lights and lower brake lights and parking lights on Subaru Impreza Outback not work when headlights and hazards and turn lights and upper brake lights do?
I have run into the same thing with this kind of car. On the steering column at the top they have a switch that will turn the running lights on or turn them off. check the switch you may have hit it and turn it on.
Check the brake light switch. It's under the dash, connected to the brake pedal. If it's adjusted wrong or faulty, it could cause the brake lights to stay on. If you can use a meter and tell that the brake light switch is ok, next test the turn signal switch. Sometimes they short out and leave the brake lights on. You'll have to pull the steering wheel to do that.
Why would a 88 Chevy truck have rear running lights working but brake lights and rear turn signal lights not working?
Brake Lights Don't Work The brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit of their of their own and thus independent of the tail lights and side marker lights ["running"] lights. There could be several causes for this problem, and without being able to see and troubleshoot the brake light wiring circuit no one can tell you the specific cause. Some of the possible causes include: Brake light switch is not adjusted properly… Read More
How do you fix running lights on 1990 Buick Century Brake lights and turn signals and hazards all work Just no running lights?
I have a chev cavlier 1995 and the running lights do no work---on the dash the green light keeps blinking----what should I 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?
Often this type of behavior is caused by a bad ground for the lighting circuit. Check the ground circuit for the brake lights.
the brake light switch on the brake pedal is bad and needs to be replaced. A $10.50 part at parts store.
Check bulbs they are double filamented smaller for brake lights larger for tailights Check the fuse Check the operation of the stoplight switch
Your trailer tailights are dual-filament, with one being the running lights and the other the brake lights. You need a separate power source from your towing vehicle's brake lights to power them. The easiest way to do this is go to U-Haul and but a set of their trailer towing taillight bulbs for your towing vehicle. The bulbs replace your standard tail/brake light bulbs, and they have two wires coming out of the base of… Read More
Any information about a 2005 Ram 2500 that the running lights keep coming on and kill the battery when the vehicle is off?
Are you sure it is your running lights & not just the brake lights? A bad brake light switch (common problem) will cause your brake lights to stay on all the time because they are not wired to the accessory switch, meaning they will work whether the truck is on or off. Hope this helps!
Check the brake light switch, it's under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal.
Running lights (left side): Fuse #47 -- Running lights (right side): Fuse #48 -- Brake lights: Fuse #54. Fuse panel is on the lower left side (underneath) the dashboard. NOTE: If it is your brake lights that are not working and fuse # 54 looks okay, check the brake light switch, it may have gone bad.
Why don't the brake lights work but the flashers and running lights work if the bulbs and fuses are good?
Please check the Brake light switch....The brake light switch should be located near or on the brake pedal (up on the stem of the brake pedal)
You don't unless you are parked with the engine running. If you are parked and you want the engine running but don't want the daytime running lights on just shut the car off and set the parking brake then start the car back up. The lights should remain off until you release the parking brake.
Is that a question? They work because that's the way your terrible car was designed to work? Do you mean HOW do they work?
How can you disable Dodge Sport Caravan running lights to make it home on battery with broken alternator?
The running lights will turn off when the emergency brake is on by tripping a switch connected to the emergency brake. Pushing in the emergency brake slightly will do the trick, but make sure you don't push in too far or you will be driving with the emergency brake on!
If you pull the parking brake up the running lights will go off - if not - start the car with the parking brake on and that should work, if you want to drive with the running lights off - you can get away with "slightly" putting the parking brake on (just so the parking brake light goes on in the dash but the brakes itself makes no contact) Otherwise you can remove the relay… Read More
By fixing what is causing it to be on. Check brake fluid level first. Hmmm. It wouldn't be because you like to drive with the parking brake pulled up one click in order to keep the daytime running lights off, would it? If you leave it on long enough it'll burn out on it's own like mine did.
One of two things. Either the brake light switch behind the brake pedal. Or try wiggling or rotating your turn signal stalk in a circle motion. If the brake lights work when the turn signal stalk is wiggled then you need to replace the turn signal stalk.
Inside the trunk behind where the brake lights are are a plastic cover. Remove that and you will see one bolt. Reach in to the far side of the light and you will find the second bolt. Remove those and the brake lights can be pulled out. Now just twist the bulb holders and there are your brake light bulbs.
Running and blinker lights work but No brake lights gmc seirra 1997fuses are good bulbs are good whats the problem?
The next thing to check is the switch that activates the brake lights. It is probably on the master cylinder.
Try applying parking brake
Why no brake lights on a 1993 Honda prelude but the running lights stay on all the time.Bulbs are fine .?
The brake lights may not work on a 1993 Honda Prelude if the brake light switch is no longer working. The brake light switch is in the steering column just above where the brake pedal is bolted to it. There is also a chance that a brake light fuse is blown.
Why would my headlights quit working but the parking lights brake lights and tail lights still work and high beams do when switch is pulled back on a 94 Grand Am?
Low beams are burned out.
The only thing that will work with key OFF is the brake lights,head lights and emergency flashers. Dome light will also work.
If you mean the daytime running lights , just put your emergency / parking brake on when you are parked
