Jeep Cherokee

Why would the brake lights stay stuck on in a 1993 Jeep Cherokee when the headlights or just the parking lights are turned on but work properly when no lights are turned on?

I have had a broken filament in a brake light bulb do the same thing. they cross touch and allow power to cross into the other circuit. replace all brake bulbs. If condition still there also check the front turn signal bulbs. They all share the same circuit..

I would check the ground wire first just in case that is the problem. If not, get back to me with additional information.

no, you may not, because ,driving with just your parking lights only( in place of your headlights) is against the law

The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.

The headlights work on a totally different relay than the parking and fog lights. The headlight relay or headlight fuse is usually blown when only the parking and fog lights work.

The parking lights on a two-door 1990 Acura Integra hatchback are located in between the headlights and the blinker lights. Replacement requires a size 3652 parking light bulb.

Those aren't headlights, they're considered running lights or parking lights. I believe that mercury calls this a Light Bar.

Do you mean the parking lights? if it's the parking lights that are on, check the switch on top of the steering column.

Proper Use of "Parking Lights"The answer depends on the "Traffic Code" for the State in which you are driving.However, they are called parking lights because they are supposed to be used to warn other vehicle drivers of the location, position, and "state" [parked] of your vehicle.Most jurisdictions prohibit driving with parking lights only. The only exception that might convince a Police Officer to not give you a ticket would be in the case of the loss of headlights out in the boondocks on a very dark night in which you drove only with parking lights to get to a safe place.

If your car has daytime running lights (standard in Canada) then the only way to turn on just the parking lights is when the car is in park or neutral, the light switch is in the park light position and the parking brake is on. Then the headlights will turn off. Any other configuration means the headlights will be on. On this car, parking lights can truly only be used when parked!

It means that your fog lights are on - which should only happen when your headlights or at least parking lights are on.
