??? Your brakelights are only supposed to come on when using the brakes. Do you mean that your TAIL LIGHTS don't work? Hey Jose==Your TAIL lights may have a fuse blown or something could be wrong with the head light switch. You just have to check it out. GoodluckJoe The tail light bulb has two filaments in it. One for the tail light and one for the brake light. The brake light part is still connected but the one for the tail light is broken. All of this is inside the bulb. Happens all the time. Just need to replace the tail light bulb.

Which lights are the brake lights and which lights are the fog lights?

Fog lights are in the front; they are commonly referred to as "brights" because they are the brighter of the two standard headlights. Brake lights are in the rear; they light up when pressure is applied to the brakes or when the car is in park or reverse.

Why do the brake lights on a 2000 4Runner barely come on when the headlights are turned on?

The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.

How do you turn headlights off a 1999 GMC Jimmy?

The only way you can completely turn off the headlights is to push in the emergency brake slightly, then start the truck and leave the emergency brake on the slightest setting, and the running lights will stay off. Obviously the brakes will be slightly engaged, but you can adjust the emergency brake so the first click doesn't engage the brakes.

On a 91 Camry should the brake lights come on as tail lights when you turn on lights or remain out until brakes are applied even if lights are turned on?

In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.


What could cause the brake-lights on a 1990 Volvo to work with the headlights off but not to work when the headlights are turned on?

They are either the wrong bulbs or one of the filaments is burned out. The bulbs should have two filaments. One is illuminated when the lights are on. The other is brighter when the brakes are used.
