Had the same problem with a ford Contour. Turned out to be a loose connection on the turn signal switch. remove top trim from steering column and dsisconnect and re-connect connectors. Good luck.

When this happens, wiggle the turn signal stalk. If this fixes the problem, you need a new turn signal switch. Sometimes when you hit the brakes, the lights will come on. This is an indication of a bad switch.

A bad brake light switch or a bad headlight switch, or the power source of the fuse has a problem or break in the wire (circuit).

Check your headlight switch. Sometimes the switch goes bad and the dash lights won't light. Replace the switch for the fix.

There is likely a problem with either the headlight switch or the associated circuit.

I own a 1991 F-150 and had same problem. Check the high beam (floor) switch. That was my problem, I normally kick the switch.

Had the same problem with mine. The dealership told me it was the backup light switch. I had the same problem, as do 99% of VW beetle owners. There was a recall on the Brake Light Switch. Call your dealer and they should change it for free. I did. It worked for a bit, but now i think one of my brake lights is out again.

The brake relay switch is bad.

Its most likely the brake switch. Its a plunger like switch on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change.

Brake Lights "Stuck" ONUsually that is caused by the brake light switch becoming "out of adjustment," but sometimes it can be caused by a defective brake light switch.

User Avatar

I had a 1986 cj that had the same problem. Couldn't find the problem until the dimmer switch on the floorboard went out. Replaced the switch and the gauge lights started to work.

User Avatar

the most common problem with this is that the customer has the dimmer turned down (located below the headlight switch)

User Avatar

I am having the same problem. Did you get yours fixed? I can't seem to locate the problem area. Changed all of the fuses. Looking for the relay switch to change and then the last thing i can think to replace it the switch. Let me know if you fixed it. Thanks

I had a similar problem with my S70 and discovered the headlight switch was defective. The switch had actually begun to separate causing the contacts for the tail lights not to make contact. Try having someone observe the tail lights while you push on the headlight switch. If the tail lights begin to work, replace the headlight switch.

I have the same problem. Everything I am finding suggests bad headlight switch. If you know how to change the switch try it. I think a new switch is like $5. Personally I have no mechanical skill so I'm taking to a mechanic, but new switch should fix the problem if most of these guys are in agreement.
