Check the brake switch located on your brake pedal shaft. May have to be replaced.
With most vehicles you can turn on the parking lights or the headlights and the dash illumination lights light up without turning on the ignition switch.
I would think ALL of them ! The power light is an indicator for the user that mains is present and the unit is switched on !
That led is only showing that there is power to the switch and/or the light and fan fixture. You would have to check the power at the fixture to determine if it is actually in the switched feed or the fan/light assembly.
ignition switch or key and tumbler.
if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.
One thing that could cause this would be a faulty ignition switch, specially if you do not have ignition (cluster) lights. Just a thought...
I would wire them using a common relay and a ground switched circuit i.e. Terminal #30 Hot Terminal #87 Load Terminal #85 Hot Terminal #86 Switched to Ground
i would not recommend it. that will have your fuel pump at a constant run when the ignition is switched on.
I would first consider that the car stalled BEFORE the lights came on. You might have a bad ignition switch or loose connection at the battery.
move the dimmer back and forth and turn the parking lights on and off. sometimes the switch gets wierd.
Soft iron looses it's charge when current is switched off. Hard iron would remain magnetized.
1. You may not want all lights on, so with a parallel circuit you can turn some off while the others remain lit (you cannot do this with series) 2. If one of the lights go out, the others will remain lit
Sounds to me it is your brake lights that are stuck on. If that is the case, I would suspect a faulty or out of adjustment brake light switch.
The ignition coil is the transformer that puts out the voltage required to make a spark jump the points of a spark plug. this in turn lights the petrol which pushed down the piston.
Yes you would use a serial circuit You would use parallel circuit lights for a Christmas tree because if you used series circuit lights, and one of the bulb blows, the rest of the bulbs will go out. But with parallel circuit lights, if one bulb blows the rest of the bulbs will remain their brightness.
The question is ambiguous, however one possibility is a parallel circuit, which would permit one light bulb to remain lit while the other light bulb was switched off. By contrast, if the light bulbs were connected in a series circuit, switching one light bulb off would cause both lights to go off.
check the wiring connections as it sounds to me that the illumination wire is getting a constant 12v feed, also check that the ignition wire is switching off with the ignition
I would contact someone who works for the city. they will have a record of what types of lights they use. the halide lights are supposed to be less expensive to use so my guess is in this economy your city has switched to save money
If auto, it can be the neutras switch and if standard, it can be the clutch switch. Otherwise, take it to a garage as it can be the starter, solonoid, ignition switch or ????
it may not be you ignition relay, but your alternator.
No, the Eiffel Tower is definitely NOT haunted. In fact, with lights switched on all day and night, how would the spirits dare to go near that majestic structure?
a bad or mis-adjusted brake switch.gmjim
Sounds like a bad ignition switch.
If that's a continuous load of 40 watts, you need quite a large battery, depending on how long the demand is. Car batteries supply more than 40 watts when running the cars lights when the car's ignition is switched off, so I guess something like a motorcycle battery would suffice.
