    I finally got the problem fixed by changing one of the fuses, but now when I turn on the switch to park the head light turns on, what do I do now?

This is morelikely a connection problem some wire is causing this short circuit and the result is the fuse being busted, so first thing to do here is to check all wiring and make sure everything is connected properly....

Hope that helps............

Shift into park


Could be the park lock solenoid. Thats the part that locks the shifter in park and requires you to press on the brake pedal to release.

Replaced both headlight bulbs and passenger side light still does not work on 2007 tundra


Check the fuses. I do believe there is a left and right side fuse for the headlamps. For some reason toyotas, especially highlanders, like to blow the fuses when the headlights burn out.

2003 Toyota Tundra Limited Stepside truck. No brake light. But the 3rd brake light works. Already checked the 15 amp fuse by the steering column


Hello.

We would suggest that you look at the wiring connector under the bed, that feeds the taillamps.

You will probably find a coroded wire in the connector. If the 3rd brake lamp works, all of the fuses and switches are good.

2001 toyota minivan wont shift out of park


Normally, an burened out brake light fuse will prevent the shifter from coming out of park. A bad brake pedal switch that activates the brake lamps could also cause this issue. A more remote cause would be a shorted out trailer harness, that is causing the brake light fuse to blow.

Problems with brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


YES -- process of elimination. Obviously there's a short circuit in the Brake/Headlight circuits - right? Blown fuse(s) is/are evident of this -- would you agree? Which fuse(s) is/are blowing? An analysis tells you that the only time a fuse blows is when the headlamps are turned on -- correct? Otherwise, brake lights work normally -- right? OK. Head lamps have relays which turn them on. Here's a wiring diagram of the 2000 Hyundai Sonata (NOT the Jeep Grand Cherokee)
7a9e354.jpg a663f53.gif It would appear the problem is with one or more bulbs or sockets or both. As you many notice, there are no connections between the headlamps and brake lamps except the parking lamps (which share the bulbs/sockets)
c7068ec.gif When the headlamps are turned on, so does the tail lamp relay. As you can see, these bulbs/sockets are 'DUAL' filament to ground (series-parallel circuit). Just a guess here - the short is in one of the lower rear brake/parking lamp bulbs/sockets.... just a guess.
