ABS light is on because brake light circuit is down. Did you replace the park lamp fuse? Check trailer light connector if you have one.

    When you replaced the head light switch did you replace the gang connector as well? Usaully these connectors are burned, discolord or deformed from failure of the origanal switch. If your fuse is good, the circuit through that switch has to be it. Pull the switch out, take a wire and jump red-to-violet. if lights come on, it's the switch terminal or the connector on the back of the fuse box.

My stop lights not working.. they work if a have the headlights on.????? help please


More info would be helpful, but just going on what you said, I would guess your brake lights fuse is blown. The running lights and the brake lights are on different fuses, and when you turn the headlights on the rear running lights turn on as well, which you may be confusing with the brake lights. If you check and the fuse is not blown, I suspect you may have changed or had the brake lights changed recently and the bulbs were the incorrect ones. Hope this helps.

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 ?

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.

Cant get my 1993 nissan altima out of park


is your battery dead? turn your headlights on. do they work? if not,then the battery is dead. your car will not come out of park unless the brake lights come on. if the batterys dead,the brake lights will not come on. try a boost from another car. another solution,brake light fuse is blown.look under the dash or on driverside dash panel for fuse panel. look for a brake kight fuse that's blown. have you tryed applying the brake pedal with car off to see if the brake lights come on?hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..
