Tail lights and brake lights not working with headlights on

When my headlights are turned on my brake lights and tail lights will not come on for my Saturn LS 2. The turn signals have recently gone out also. Switch was replaced for the turn switch. Bulbs have been changed out for tail lights and brake lights. However, when day running lights are on brake lights will work.

    I have a 2000 Saturn LS-1, The switch has progressively gotten worse. It started with the headlights coming on in the middle of the night and draining the battery. I then learned to unplug the battery at night, Now the lights are staying on all the time. The daytime running lights are not even working correctly anymore, My bright light indicator is on but the brights aren't. It used to be I could jiggle the switch and It would work correctly, now, No Dice. I have ordered a replacement aftermarket switch since none of the local salvage yards do not have a Saturn this new. I am hoping that this fixes the problem, Is this issue part of the recall as well?

We had the same problem with ours, that is a Saturn recall items. Check with your Saturn dealer to see if it is still in effect. It use to make our headlight switch get hot. I think it was a poor ground in the taillight housing, I use to wiggle the bulb plug-ins and that helped for a while, but after the recall was fixed it never did it again.

Tail lights not working


All of the marker and tail lights are powered from a 15amp fuse going thru the headlight switch on a brown wire. Do you have power from that circuit coming out of the headlight switch ?

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working


The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1994 Pontiac Grand am Tailights all work normaly except when the headlights are on and then they don't work at all?


Could be the headlight switch.
The switch has two sets of contacts for the parking lights, the park position and headlight position.
You may need to check the circuit at the switch to see if you are loosing power when the switch is moved from park to head.

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

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.
