Short in wiring harness OR short in wiring connector OR corrosion in connector OR someone put a trailer light clamshell on wrong (still a short).  This covers this 98% of the time.   The other 2% is frequently a short;~)
Do the brake lights always work? are they bright?

Cruize control does not engage


Check the fuse box before you change anything, after that call a dealer or auto electrician/ knowledgeable neighbour.. Do you have a repair manual? Is there any reason the wiring harness has been hit, check the boot and bonnet connections, brake lights and reverse come through the side of the boot area. Has something pulled the harness?

1997 gmc 1500 xcab reverse lights come on when braking


Sounds like someone put the bulbs back in the wrong holes in the taillight. Or two wires are shorting together. Either way , I think if you remove the taillights , you will find the problem easily.

When i turn lights on brakes light work in reverse


Sounds like some crossed wiring or perhaps the connectors to the lights are swapped if they are the same connector. I would start with the brake lights and make sure everything is hooked up the way its supposed to.

2000 toyota camry check engine light. trac light on. when i step on breaks reverse square indicator on dash board goes on. No reverse lights and rear light indicator on.


wires are pinched and shorting together near the left (drivers side) trunk hinge. brake light power is feeding back through the reverse light wiring. this will also turn on the check engine light with a neutral safety switch malfunction code as the computer also sees this voltage in the reverse light circuit. Find and repair the wiring, pull the EFI fuse in the panel under the hood to clear the code. Hope this helps

My tail lights dont work, its not a fuse, my blinkers and reverse lights work, its just my running lights and my brake lights that dont, any suggestions?


check the wire harness that runs from inside the trunk on the drivers side follow it down to the tail light and make shure the wires are not damaged or unplugged remove cover on the drivers side inspect the bulbs the holders and the wires and dont forgt to retighten all grounds that you find on your travels this should get the rear tail lights working also check the brake pedal switch up on the metal part of the brake pedal arm follow it up tp the brake pedal switch and acuate the switch by hand and check the wire voltage coming in and going out when pressing the brake pedal ok give this a shot
