If bulbs are ok it will be the brake light switch, or possibly the wires to the switch that have been knocked off with your foot. Push the drivers seat right back and get your head down under the dash. There may be a small panel that requires removal so that you can see up to the switch. Its directly in line with the brake pedal and has two wires going to it. Remove the connector and link the wires with a bridge wire. Switch ignition on and check lights. If they are on replace the switch or adjust so that the centre pin that comes out against the brake pedal is further away but is being pressed when the pedal is released.

    I have this same problem. I have purchased a replacement but I'm not sure how to access the switch and remove it properly (without breaking it). Can you give a little more step-by-step detail for a girl that is trying to fix it herself instead of paying the garage $100? I have a 2007 Accent and the brake lights don't light up but all the other lights, etc., are fine. Thank you! Also, if you have a diagram or photo, that would be so helpful!

Problem with parking back lights on my school bus I changed all the fuses and nothing my headlights work reverse lights work


Do the front park lights work? The front and rear park lights should be on the same circuit. If no park lights operational, possible switch or power/ground issue. If only rear park lights not working, suspect burned out bulbs/wiring problem to rear lights

I have a 1977 Ford E-150, when I turn on the headlights I have no turn signal lights and no brake lights. With the headlights off the turn signals work fine and the brake lights are fine. My idea is brake...


Well, the headlight switch would have no connection to the brake and turn signals. But you could have a ground problem somewhere.
I would want to trace the circuit from the brake switch to the tail lamps with the headlights on to verify.
And does it matter if you are using headlights or just parking lights.

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 ?

Headlights do not work. Beam works, park lights and other lights work. Bulbs ok


more than likely a fuse or a relay is bad. locate the fuse for the headlights (owners manual) and check if it is bad, if the fuse is good, find the relay and give it a flick or two and try the headlights then, if they work, its time for a new relay

It's not the brake switch. the lights for the brakes, turn signal, headlights, and parking all go to the turn signal switch/ multi fuction switch. this is wher your problem is probably coming from

On my 98 Catera the brake lights work during the day but when the headlights come on my brake lights stay on ? Also when the headlights are on my cruise control will not work ??? Any help ????????


Your cruise will not work if the brake lights are on just like the cruise disengages when you hit the brakes.As far as the brake lights with the headlights,sounds like there is something crossed.If you hold your breaklights on with your headlights off is there a glow of the headlights or your running lights.If your rear bulbs are the round push in and turn type make sure they are installes correctly.You may have one where the contact on the bottom of the bulb is causing a jump of power from your running/parking light over to the brake light side.Well hope this helps and good luck.

Headlighs turn off while driving and the parking brake light comes on?


Check your parking brake lever switch. If the switch is tripped, the brake light on the dash comes on and your headlights go out.

If the switch is okay, trace the wiring back for shorts to ground.
