When I shut off the car, the passenger side rear brake light won't shut off. I checked the bulb on the driver side but it is fine. I replaced it to be sure. I can't seem to get the passenger side to go out and apparantly I have no brake light on the driver side. Any suggestions?

Are the brake lights stuck on or are you just seeing the parking lights on without the brake lights lighting up? Sounds like you have no rear brake lights, check your emergency light switch. Sometimes it may not switch completely, turn it on and off a few time and then recheck it.
HI Matt, Your issue sounds like a fault, most likely in the rear lights. Current is feeding from the brake light circuit, into the running light circuit. The most common causes are a bulb filament broken and touching the running light circuit, and loss of ground. observe the rear lights closely and you should get a clue as to which light is failing....but if not, just pick one.... I would run a temporary ground and test again, if no results, pull the brake light bulbs... Transient current is often difficult to wrap your mind around, until you understand what can happen. Doc
hi, i have sorted this problem on my 99 focus ghia.,check both your tail light bulbs.someone put the wrong bulb in and i had the exact same problems you described.the bulb for brake/tail light has two steel connecters and and all other bulbs have one.i put proper bulb in and the problem disappeared.now lights working perfect and sidelights dont come on now when i brake :)change both brake/tail bulbs on each side.1 euro will fix this problem.hope this helps.
