Hey Mitch ==Probably a bad ground on the lights. Check it out. GoodluckJoe
TRy changing your brakes and closing your doors while driving.
Sounds like you need brakes. Have it looked at soon! Or maybe the fact its a Chevy that might be the problem
If your brakes go out while driving, first shift the vehicle into neutral and then apply the emergency brake. If neither of these slows the vehicle, turn on your safety lights and get into the right lane.
while your car is in park depress the parking brakes,turn the car off then on again it should be off.only until you diengage the parking brake.
I am sorry there needs to be more info.on this....are you saying when you have the flashers on and apply the brakes that the hazard lights go out??
if timing belt brakes while driving,will it damage motor.
on some cars the tail lights and brake lights are totally different bulbs gain access to the bulbs and have someone push the brakes so that you can determine which bulbs are the brake lights and replace the tail lights
If you want to turn off the running lights off try to engage the emergency brakes. I have a 2000 Montana and that works.
Hazard lights should only be used when your car is stopped or coming to a stop. Using them while you are actually still driving can be dangerous. Other drivers will be unable to tell if you are going to change lanes or get off the road because your turn signals or 'blinkers' will not work when your hazard lights are on.
my blinkers are not working when the vehicle is cold and it makes this buzzing sound but after a while it works just fine. do you know what this can be? or what i need to check
Answerpull the bulbs on the left and make sure they are not in with the tits in the wrong position. That is lower teet in the upper slot of the socket.
have your brakes checked
it could be a plunger relay switch or pressure switch as some people call them. It will be mounted on the brake pedal arm. but i would check the bulbs first because if it is a dual filament bulb it could have gone out on one filament and not another. if your tail lights work and the blinkers work while the tail lights are on then most likely it is the switch on the pedal
I know that on my 1998 Silverado, if I but the parking brake on, the fulltime headlites turn off while I'm sitting and idling.
The dimmer switch when turned just past high, turns on the interior lights. There are switches in the door opening that turns the lights off when the door is closed. Either one of these can cause the lights to stay on if they fail.
possible transfer case encoder motor problem
Make sure the wires to the blinkers are not loose and that the bulbs work (turn on the hazard lights to see). It is best to call a mechanic to look at your vehicle. While some places do allow you to drive using hand signals, some countries do not allow it. Since you didn't mention a country, we cannot advise you legal-wise.
If you suspect something, get them checked. If you get vibration while applying the brakes, get them checked. If you get grinding noise from the brakes, get them checked.
To push the piston in you need a special tool. The rear disk brakes on this car screw in. So you have to turn them to the left while pushing in and this requires a special tool to fit the piston.
There is a ground fault in one of your wire connections into your taillight. It is usually a connector for your rear light assembly. Starting with the side that blinkers flash fast when brakes are applied, remove the 2 mounting screws from the rear light assembly using an allen wrench. Disconnect the plug from the tail light assembly . You will find that the pin to your ground will have a blackish tint on the pin (on the rear light assembly). Clean this pin and the corresponding plug recepticle. I added a tiny piece of tin foil to the plug in the ground pin hole to ensure a tight connection. Plug in the unit while not installed and see if that eliminates the blinker lights from coming on on the dash when the brakes are applied and the blinker is on. This worked on my 2001 Montana rear drivers side. I also had the back up lights coming on when brake was applied when blinkers were activated. This fixed every problem
While working for a RV dealer, I came across a similar problem where the clearance lights would flash with the directionals. Turned out to be a shorted filaments in one of the rear dual filament bulbs.

apply your brakes gently while accelerating at the same time
Not sure how to while you're driving, but if your parked - press in on your e-brake, turn your car off, then turn it on and your lights won't be on. To turn them back on, simply release the brake.
Usually a bad flasher or problem in steering column
