Passenger side rear brake light is stuck on

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?

When light switch is off only 3rd brake light work, when switch is on the back lights are stuck on 3rd light works normal what could be the problem?


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.

The passenger side brake light on my 1994 Nissan Altima won't stay on. It's the main four bulb assembly. If I hit the brakes the brake lights on both sides come on but then the passenger side goes...


Could be a weak connection in the harness or on the circuit board.
If you have someone hold down the brake pedal, are you loosing power or ground to the bulb ?

Weird tail light problem


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.
