Put your fuse back in and pull up on your break peddal and see if they go out .
if they do you just need to adjust your switch . if it doesnt replace the switch

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

Dash lights wont work when my95 acura is on but i have after market security and that makes them flash when locked or unlocked and it flashs but when car is turned on and lights are turned on the dont work...


there are like 15 lights, idiot lights and park/dim.
are all idiot lamps out, or just the parkings.
like CEL, Charge, Oil, Brake,
if the main warning lights are all out, key on, and engine runs
and head lights are full bright.
then you blew a fuse, as always, check fuses first.

I have a 85 omni glh I blew my brake lights out I replaced the fuse but they still don't work , everything elae works on the car except the hazards , are the brake lights and the hazards connected...


yes they are. if your hazard flasher is bad and you happen to have the hazard switch turned on your brake lights wont work
put hazard switch in one position and check brake lights
then put in other position and check them
if they work with the hazard switch in one position leave switch olone and check fuses and put a new flasher for hazard in
