Reverse light on when brake is applied

Manny, I am confused too. When you apply brake, brake light should light up. There is no connection with reverse lights which have no color. Have you checked the manual? If you can't find solution, you may have to show it to a good mechanic because operating a vehicle this way could give wrong signals to traffic behind.

I have a 1992 Altima that has break lights that won't turn off unless I disconnect the battery. Do you think that this is a ground wire?

No check your brake light switch, could need adjusting, follow brake paddle up under dash, switch will hook up to it.Adjust it in or out, till switch hit brake paddle arm, the button on the switch is push in, brake light will be off, till you apply brakes then it will come on.

Head lights burn some time only after you press and release the park brake repeatatly whats worng

Well the headlights do not come on if the parking brake is still on. So maybe in your described case you are having a problem with the switch at the park brake. The switch is probably sticking in the "park brake applied" position. If you look at the switches at the parking brake and can spray some penetrant on them this may free them up.

Brake lights stay on 1991 Lexus LS 400

Simple fix... Just replace the brake light switch. It is located on the brake pedal arm about 6 inches above the pedal, it will have a plug going to it as well.
