It should be a faulty brake light switch, but you can also test the relay.

How do I replace the left front side marker light?


If there are no external screws (on cover) and the battery is on this side, remove the battery (should disconnect anyway); and you should be able to access it that way. If not, you may need to remove the blinker cover (if seperate) in order to get to the marker light. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi i have an 1986 toyota 4runner the dash lights and running lights stopped working... fuse is blown and checked wires in the tail lights, marker lights and behind the dash with no luck... is there a...


The tail and marker lights and Instrument lights are on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for this circuit blows. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or marker globes, including the globes for the number plate, for a globe that may have an internal short causing the fault and replace as necessary. As you have already checked the wiring near the light fittings for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fault, then a closer inspection of the wires inside all the light assemblies for any shorts may be needed.

It could also be that the instrument dimmer control has failed and is causing the fault. The electronic bits inside the dimmer control for these lights sometimes go faulty. Try disconnecting the connecting plug on the rear of the dimmer control and checking if fuse still blows. If fuse continues to fail, then the fault in the tail and marker lights circuit.

Remove all the tail, number plate and running light globes from the light assemblies and leave the instrument dimmer control disconnected and check if fuse still blows.

Disconnect the plug near each of the light assemblies to see if any of the individual assemblies is causing the fault. With all light assemblies disconnected and fuse continues to fail, then the fault must be in the main wiring loom some where.

If you have a Multimeter, it could be used to determine which light assembly has a fault between the lamp supply and earth connection.

My 2000 expedtion has issues with the radio and marker lights not shutting off when the vehicle is shut off. I turn it off and take the key out and the radio and marker lights remain on. If I disconnect...


Look for the relay that controls both in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. The relay will be labeled on the inside of the cover for the box, or they are all listed in your owners manual. Sounds like your relay is going bad and will need to be replaced.

Tailights, Marker lights, Flashers and dashlights


ignition switch may be bad not cutting electricity to car when shut off. the way the ignition switch works, is that when car is shut off, there should be no electricity going through it. if in doubt or ya need help, go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual, they are based on a complete teardown of car for about 20.00, make sure you buy one for your make and model and year vehicle.also check main ignition fuse in fuse box.

1989 300e. The anti theft alarm went off while driving the car now the engine won't start. We shut the car off and locked and unlucked the doors several times. The alarm reset and we began driving again. A...


This is the problem due to your anti theft alarm system. You have not mentioned which brand of anti-theft alarm system you have? Anyhow, most of the systems have a reset switch inside the kit, open the kit and on the main board, u will find the reset button, press that and hold for 5 sec, the system will be reset. Otherwise, there are 2 or 3 fuses with the wiring of kit, remove those fuses and ur engine will wake up but the anti-theft system wont work then, hope this will solve the problem

Tail light fuse keeps blowing on my 1995 geo prism


Took it to the shop. The side marker lights were missing on my son's car. The wiring loops from the side marker lights to the tail lights. As the wires were touching in the front, they shorted out the tail lights. Capped the wires, problem solved!
PS: ordered side marker lights, too.

Batterie is drained when i get up the next morning to start it up


well for starters make sure your battery is fully charged disconnect battery ground(-) ,connect a test light between negative(-) terminal on battery and the ground strap you removed from the battery, if the test light lights up then you have somthing draing your battery. start by removing fuses one at a time if the test light goes out after that fuse is removed that is the source of the draw killing your battery.If there are no faults found at fused circuits start disconnecting wiring connectors from the nonfused circuits ie starter,ignition,alternator,cooling fan.If the test light does not light up at all when connected let me know for the next step
