See if the brake light actuator switch is stuck or defective it is located on the upper portion of the brake pedal

you need a brake light stop switch. it is located on the brake pedal at the top. really easy to change out.

SOURCE: headlight wont turn on

Sounds like your headlight switch has failed. I have a 99 Audi A4, and when mine died, it was the same exact problem (it's a known problem area for the Audis). Given that your car is behaving the same way, I'd look into a new headlight switch as a solution. The toggle-for-highbeams feature is wired separate from the normal headlight wiring and is a simpler contact setup. The contacts and wiring and switching for the low and running high beams is more prone to failure. You should be able to find a switch assembly at a salvage yard for less than $15 and can probably change it yourself in a half hour to an hour.

SOURCE: Tail lights wont work

sounds like ground problem- remove tail lights and look for wires going to body -remove screww clean grounding area and replace- both sides. You did not say whether the lights work when car is off? With car off and brake pedal pushed is there any brake lights ? If not procede with above.

SOURCE: No tail lights or brake lights/must start car in neutral

Look up at the top of the brake pedal under dash and you should see a switch hooked to the pedal with a LG/R and LG wire. You should have power on the LG/R wire then when you depress pedal it should have power on the LG then.
Another question does the 3rd or high mount brake lamp illuminate when pedal is depressed?

SOURCE: brake lights ,tail lights wont work i have replaced fuses,bulbs

Check fuses, I believe that the WJ's (99-04) ran a separate circuit for bake lights. Not sure if they did same for the ZJ's (93-98)

Back right tail light wont turn off even when car is not started


On some cars, brake lights work even with key off, and if yours does, the likely problem is in the turn signal switch.

My rear lights wont come on even though the brake lights and the head lights work. is it the running light modulator


If your car uses a modulator it might be the problem. Or the tail light fuse or the headlight switch.
The tail lights are on a different circuit from the brake lights.

Why after changing the brake light the icon on the dashboard does not go away


make sure you replaced it with the correct bulb number, some bulbs look identical but run at a different wattage and can trick the system. Also, check all the brake and tail lights, even the small side marker lights can turn this on. Also, if it is a brake light turning the icon on, it wont' come on until you step on the brakes, if it comes on right away, i'ts probably a tail/marker light

1966 mustang sequential turn/tail/brake lights/signals are ALIVE!


Recheck ALL the wiring, check the brake light switch and signal switch. Either on could have gone bad due to its age. Them suspect the controller for the lights. What do the 4 ways do? I think I would be suspecting the signal switch.

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail


If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
