Have the output of the alternator check... and perhaps the battery posts may need cleaning as well.

Digital dash blinks on and off everytime i use brake pedal


Sound like a bad or loose ground, loose plug, fuse, feel around area above brake pedal and gently wiggle wires to see if you can duplicate dash blinking, if not the dashes digital board may have a cracked solder joint which could be connecting and disconnecting with vibration.

My 89 nissan d21 brakelights went out and when i push down the pedal my dash lights come on


Hi, if you didnt fix it yet I'll tell you what could cause the dash lights to come on while pressing on the brake pedal, and that is checking the bulbs AND putting the wrong one in the wrong hole, IE putting the back-up bulb in a brake/parking light socket . The single lead on the center of the back-up bulb shorts the double contacts on the brake/park light socket so the electricity just flows through the one tip of the bulb connecting the two contacts in the socket since the park and dash lights are on the same circuit the dash lights will be energized, hope that makes sense as it happened to me with a 66 mustang. Good luck!!

i guess u have standard radio that came with the car? i don't know how it calls this thing, but when u turn on ur headlight, on the same stick there is another regulator that regulates light in the cabin and dash light, so turn it off, turn clockwise! or leave a little light in ur dashboard!

My brakes lights stay on when my headlights are on, but the brake lights work fine when my headlights are off. Do you know what may be the problem?


This problem likely is the filaments touching in one of the dual filament bulbs used for the brake lights. Another sign of this would be the dash illumination lights coming on when the headlights are off and the brake pedal is pressed. The solution is to replace the defective bulb.
