    Thanks dencilf. Would you be able to tell me what the solenoid might look like and where it is located on the brake pedal itself ?

    thanks again !!

    silver top, it was exactly as you said. but the solution wasn't adjusting the plunger. the problem was
    that the plastic dime sized disk that the plunger touches had become brittle and had broken into many
    pie shaped pieces and had fallen off. i found a plastic disk around the same size and thickness and glued it on. thanks for the guidance !!

    I have a 2003 Hyundai accent. Rear lights stay on even when car is off. Not sure what to do

    Signal light, Headlights ( low and high) do not work, and turning on the signal causes the tachometer and speedometer to gauge to spin, as though the car were moving.... All while ignition switch is in the on position, but with the engine not running.... .the interior fuses are all fine.

Hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

Rear brake lights and turning signals not working. One tail light has been out for very long time, but brake lights and signals just stopped working few weeks ago.


I'm checking into that same problem for a early 90's buick ( it's a GM also ) , I've checked the obvious ( bulbs, flasher,fuses,etc) all where fine. I assume your front turn signals work if you manually operate the turn signal switch or put on the hazard switch? The Buick's rear lights won't come on even with the hazard switch on. When you say one tail light has been out for some time, do you mean the brake/signal light or park/running lights? The Buick was like that with one side out for a while ( brake/signal light) but both the rear park/running lights work. Now, I've narrowed the problem down to the turn signal switch. I'd bet money on it. I just have to dig out my steering wheel puller, bite the bullet and get 'er done. You should be carefull if you're attempting that repair yourself ( AIRBAG ), use a manual. ( You could do a quick test by trying the turn signal while you pull the bottom of the arm toward you,move some of the wiring in the column near the arm,etc. I did and the signals started working. Could be the switch,dirt or a broken/loose wire. there's a lot of wiring going through the column and a lot of movement ( turn signal,high beam,cruise, then add tilt) Hope this helped.

Tail light doesnt turn on with headlights but works fine as a break light and turn signal, why?


in the rear lights you may have two bulbs one is the turn signal the other one is stop light / tail light the stop light / tail light has two filaments, one for the stop light (21 watt) & one for the tail light (5 watt) it is possible that the tail light filament is blown, try replacing the bulb to see if that fixes the problem,also check all the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.

2002 Chevy Trailblazer Brake lights failure. All Three Breaklights will not illuminate when pedal is depressed. They will work when hazards are on, blinkers, etc. Main fuse under hood is good, bulbs work,...


Well, lets try this, if you have a trailer connector tapped into the tail lights check that for a grounded wire. If a wire has grounded or come free from the splices they won't work.

Tail light running lights, and liscense plate lights dont work, but breaklights, signal, and hazard lights work


The tail lights and licence lamp is all the same circuit, should be a brown wire to all 3, it sounds like its broken in the harness somewhere (especially if the front park lamps work, then the fuse and switch are good). Trace back from rear lights until you find power. Check for pinched wires or cut, or bulges in the wire indicating resistence. Also if you have wired in a trailer plug, disconnect it and retry. Trailer wires are very seldomly wired properly and cause lots of light issues.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
