Answer

Most likely the problem is in the turn signal switch on the steering column.

Fold up a small piece of heavy paper or card board, and stick it in the four way flasher

(front or back), on top of the steering column( red color button). This worked for me.

try replacing the dimmer switch they sometimes go bad and do not allow voltage to the lights

Even after replacing the switch it needs to be aligned with the shifter. Put the car in reverse and then have someone watch the lights as you loosen the switch and then rotate it slightly forward or backwards. once the lights come on, secure it in position.

the switch on brake pedal is faulty and needs replacing

About the only thing they have in common is the headlight switch. Have it checked out.

If your brakes lights are not working and all of your other lights are OK try replacing your "brake stop switch". You may have to have either your local auto shop or local dealer replace the switch because it's hard to do yourself. I had the same problem on my Tahoe and replacing the brake stop switch solved it right away.

Check to see if the dash lights dim or if the tail lights come on when the light switch is turned on. If these other lights work then check for a headlight relay. Most likely causes are either the switch or the relay.

Be sure the dash illumination dimmer switch is not turned off.

I have a 99 blazer with the same problem. If i move the light dimmer dial from side to side it will stop. You can change the switch or from time to time wiggle the switch.

Try checking the neutral safety switch. This switch is the one in automatic transmissions that makes the backup lights "flip" on when going from park to drive as you go through the gears. When my neutral safety switch shorted my backup lights stayed on constantly.

It can be your switch or the fuse try checking the fuse first.

The switch on your brake pedal that controls the lights is most likely stuck, try some WD40 before replacing it.

It is probably the brake lights that are on due to a misinstalled or damaged brake light switch.

AnswerMost likely a faulty turn signal switch, or possibly the wiring to it.replace switch assembly.

Could be the interior light switch on the dash is turned on or the door light switch is broken.

User Avatar

have you tried replacing the bulb If its an auto,when replacing the switch on the g/box you have to rotate switch to a certain position.This may be only a few millimetres left or right.Try that

User Avatar

Pulling the turn signal switch toward you should switch the lights to the low beams. If that doesn't work, you may have to replace the switch, which means replacing the entire turn signal stalk.

check the multi function switch. I hava a 96 Chevy Monte Carlo and I had the same problem . I changed the multi function switch and the brakes lights now work. the rear brake lights run thru the switch on the turn signal circuit. try it and see.

User Avatar

Had the same thing happen on a '73 SB. It turned out (after much cussing) to be the ignition switch. Try replacing the switch with an OEM and "see" what happens!

I can't turn the yellow brake or parking lights on my 1998 Chevy blazer off and it's draining my battery.Could you please tell me which fuse or switch I'd use to disable the front yellow lights? This is happening even with the car off.

Start by checking for a bad door switch or headlight switch problem

Try replacing the headlight switch, it has the dimmer built into it.
