    did you ever find out what the cause of the reverse light coming on when you pressed the pedal? I'm having the same problem currently. Also, the brakes started vibrating at the same time, only when the car is ALMOST at a stop. Just curious if you had the same problem or if it's a coincidence, and what the cause ended up being.. thanks in advance if you get a chance to let me know ! :-)

Common to see a broken wire in the wire harness that runs along the left rear trunk hinge. They can cause all sorts of problems after years of bending when the trunk is opened and closed. You will need to carefully cut the wire loom and inspect these wires. Sometimes the wires are broken INSIDE the insulation and cannot be seen without stripping the wires.

Hello! May I suggest possibly a bad earth? can you try standing at the rear of the vehicle with ignition on ask your wife to apply the brakes, do any other lights glimmer? failing this with brakes still applied pop into reverse and see if any lights glimmer or come on? try again with left or right indicator's flashing and brakes applied, is there an irratic signal or are the reverse lights blinking too?
If any of the above take the bulb holders out of the rear lenses look for corrosion, bad contacts, broken filiaments and security. Clean and replace then see what happens.
Just a thought?
Hope this works? Good Luck!

The cable tightness is loose therefore causing the light to come on while driving, tighten or replace the eb cable hope that helps or you need to push in the button on it hold the button and pull it back as far as you can. let go then push button pull back farther and release, this should tighten the tension.

Please help.I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan.When I start the van the rear break lights would turned on automatically.When I step on the break the lights stays the same,no indication of breaking from the rear...

You have a bad break switch. It is located under your dash, above your break pedal. The stem of your break pedal, when pushed down, activates the break switch. When you push, the break light comes on. It is chrome looking. It is a round cylinder. That should fix you up. If you need anything else, please let me know. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

1997 Nissan Quest brake lights will not go off

there is a switch under the dash that turns on and off the break lights. it is connected to the pedle and a stationary spot under the driverside dash.try pulling up on the pedle to turn the switch off. if this does not work take it to a mechanic to replace the switch. they are not to expensive under $20.00 through napa.

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
