I have a 90 Prism that had the same problem. There is a platic spacer on the brake arm the crumbled with age. it is very hard to see where it is located. I glued a penny and a dime ( the thickness of the space ) to the brake arm....problem solved.

I don't know for sure about the Geo although we do have one but I just went though a similar situation with my Toronado. When I replaced the brake power booster my lights wouldn't shut off. I got under the drivers column and realized that the switch had been moved while moving things around to get the booster out.

On most cars there is a switch (with a little button that moves in and out) that must be up against the brake arm. If it is not up against it, the brakes are reading it as on. When the brakes are depressed up towards you, it depresses the button and registers as being free.

Hope that helped.

Why would a 1990 Nissan 200SX parking lights and tail lights stay on when you turn off the ignition?

Probably the rubber bumper/stopper which depresses the brake switch is gone/disintegrated. Check beneath the brake pad for broken pieces. Without this piece in place, the switch is always closed and therefore powered to light up the lights.


Where are all the brake light grounds on 1990 sundance when the headlights are off then brake lights are fine but when u turn headlights on then the brake lights don't work except the cyclops lights.?

You probably have a loose wire connection in the brake light sockets. Insert a nail or probe tip into the back of the light socket where the wires are inserted and test the brake lights. (The socket can appear perfectly normal and the wires may even seem well attached.)
