It is important to know what the meanings of the emergency lights on a ca. A brake light would stay on in a car because the brake system needed to be fixed, and the light needed to be reset.

There are many reasons why a head light would stay on when car is off. These lights could be automatic.

we had the same problem...try wiggling the wire with the lights on and then keep moving it around til they stay on...worked for us!!

you didnt specify year, but its time delayed electronically. Assuming they do eventually turn off, all is well. It's 1995 Cadillac Concours the interior lights, and head lights go out when I cut the car off but the dashboard lights stay on.

Interior lights often stay on after the door is closed because of a faulty relay. There could also be a broken wire or a short circuit.

I have a 98 Villager and I had the same problem. I found that the brake light switch at the brake pedal needed adjusting. Just loosen the lock nut and adjust the switch so that the brake lights do not stay on but only come on when the brakes are applied, then tighten the locknut. Worked for me. Hope this helps.

pretty easy really, make sure your interior lights are not turned on. Your headlights control should also be the interior light controller. Turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to turn your interior lights off. You'll run your battery down if you dont

why do the back lights stay on when the car is off and the brake release is checked on a 1994 Honda accord

I just had this problem. It turns out there's a plastic piece on the brake that hits the Stoplight switch. If the Stoplight switch is not depress, the rear park lights (stop light) would stay on.

I would guess it's an electrical problem. Perhaps there's a frayed wire or something, that when it gets wet, completes a circuit to turn the lights on.

if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.

There is a dashboard illumination switch that controls the brightness. If it is pushed up fully, the interior lights will stay on. Lower the switch slightly until the interior lights go off. When doors are closed, if the switch is lowered, the lights should go off after about 30 seconds max, maybe less. Hope this Helps, it did on mine.

There could be several possible reasons why the brake lights stay on all the time on a 307. The most common reasons would be a bad relay or a bad switch.

The door lights are supposed to go out when the circuit is completed by closing the door. A loose or corroded ground wire in the door latch can cause the lights to stay on.

the chime would stay on if the keys are in the ignition (but the car turned off) and if the door is ajar to warn that the lights are still on
