    This may be a brake warning light, have you looked in the owners manual? If it is a brake warning then it can be caused by an in-balance in the master cylinder between the force applied to the front and rear brakes, this unusually caused by internal leakage at the piston O rings and requires a new master cylinder, but first ID the light.

On the Z cars, that is an indication of a brake lamp that is burned out. Have someone step on the brakes while you look at the back of the car to identify which bulb is burned out.

only thing i can come up with is a fault on the back lights like a bad earth or even the wrong bulb in the wrong socket holder as this vehicle will have europeon type bulbs where the side and stop light are using a 5 watt and a 21 watt bulb and this could be in the wrong way around .Whatever the problem is its on the back lights for sure and i wouldnt be surprissed if the headlights dont come on when the brake pedal is pressed with the ignition on as well ,So check the back lights out and work slowly and methodically to check out every possibility

make sure the previously replaced bulb was the correct one and is installed correctly. it is a short between the tail light circuit and brake light circuit, this could even be a faulty bulb or bulb holder, the cruise will cut out if the brake light comes on, even if you dont touch the brakes

It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.

1996 saturn sl1 3rd brake light goes on when headlights or parking lights are turned on what could cause this also when u step on brake pedal with car off chime rings


Have you recently replaced any bulbs? Did you use dual element bulbs. It sounds like the wrong bulbs were used and the brakes lights are backfeeding the tail light circuit.

Lights on instrument panel: light bulb looking


Light bulb = Problem with or broken light.
Video camera = Most probably the engine electronics light. Should go off after a few seconds. If ti doesn't - take it to the mechanic.
DRL = Daytime Running Light - Problem with the lights.

Head lights come when you hit the brakes no brake lights


Wow, that's a strange one!
Try removing the brake light bulbs, and then see if the headlights still come on with the brake pedal. If the headlights still come on, there is a short to voltage somewhere in your wiring ( in other words, somehow the brake light circuit is feeding the headlights ). If the headlights stop coming on with stop light bulbs removed, you have a bad ground in the stop light circuit. Clean the contacts inside the light bulb sockets if there is any dirt or corrosion. Hope this helps.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
