Check fuses first but its probably the brake light switch under the brake pedal.

A Ford Tempo will have no brake lights if the bulb has blown or the wires have come loose. Alternatively, the brake sensor in the dash can fail and stop sending power to the lights.

The lights come on when you start the car. They will not come on if you have the park brake on. Once you release the park brake they will come on immediately.

Your tail lights are designed to come on with your low beams so that drivers behind you can see you better. It basically assumes that it is dark out. Im assuming you are referring to your tail lights, as tail lights and brake lights are two differing brightness bulbs in the same lens housing. Your tail lights will come on with your headlights, but your brake lights only come on when you depress the brake.*Note: If you were referring to the actual brakelights, do not drive your car on public roads or your chances of being in a rear-end collision are very high. Take your car to a certified automotive technician and have them checked out.

First check the brake light fuse, if good, then test the brake light switch.

Break lights come on when you step on the break, they do not come on when the head lights are turned on.


On a toyota tacoma 2003 SR5 when the tail lights are turned on the brake lights come on and when the tail lights are of the brake lights work just fine what could be the problem. If the truck has a trailer plug, inspect the plug and plug wiring for damage and corrosion.


Probably a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is installed incorrectly.
