Check the brake pads. They probably need replacing. Brake pads normally have a built in metal conductor which when worn to a certain point it will make contact with the brake rotor which in turn puts a ground potential to the warning light to make it come on.

Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?


There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

2000 Acura 3.5 RL suddenly has no tail lights or tag lights. Brake, reverse and blinker all work. Checked fuses-all appear fine. Decided to replace bulbs and noticed front right marker light out so changed...


The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

Why wont my ABS light on the dash wont turn off even after I changed the brakes?


the ABS light doesn't come on because u need a brake job, it comes on when it senses a failed part like a wheel speed sensor, in order to determine exactly what part is keeping the light on and disabling the Antilock Brakes you will need a shop to scan the systems comuter for fault codes

The dash lights keep coming on. The brake light,


This same thing keeps happening with my car. I've had the battery, alternator, alternator wore and plug changed, and the lights still keep coming on, and car keeps cutting off. I talked to someone today and they said it might be bad wiring or fuses so.... that may be it!

Here's a few things you could check, first try checking the fuses, if there good check the wheel speed sensor connecectors located on the backside of the hubs, also check the brake lines, calipers, wheel cylinders, and brake fluid level.

99 HONDA ACCORD BRAKE LIGHT (DASH) KEEPS COMING ON


Open the hood and look near the firewall on the drivers side. You will see the black rubber cap on a plastic resevoir. There is a switch that turns on when the fluid level gets low. This may be your issue.

TO TROUBLE SHOOT ELECTRICAL YOU MIGHT NEED TO TRY A GOOD BULB OF CORRECT TYPE INTO SOCKET IN BRAKE FIXTURE THEN ALSO MAKE CERTAIN THE REGULAR TAIL LIGHT ELEMENT IS GOOD REPLACE FUSE WITHOUT PRESSING BRAKE LIGHTS ON IF FUSE IS OK THEN TURN ON THE RUNNING LIGHTS SEE IF THE ONE IN QUESTION IS COMING ON IF IT IS AND THE FUSE IS OK THEN PRESS BRAKE PEDAL AND SEE IF THE BULB LIGHTS WITH THE BRAKE ON ALSO THE FOUR WAY FLAHER IF FUSE IF STILL GOOD IT MIGHT ALLOW DASH LIGHTS TO COME ON MANY VEHICLES HAVE A SAFETY WAY OF LETTING YOU KNOW YOU HAVE NO TAIL LIGHTS BY ALSO TURNING OFF THE DASH LIGHTS.

Dash lights come on when I press the brake peddle


Sounds as if your getting a back feed. Most likely from the brake light bulbs (part number 1157). Take out the brake light bulbs and see if the dash lights still come on when you step on the brakes. If so check the lead contacts on bulbs, sometimes they get squished/corroded and jump both contacts, replace bulbs with new and recheck. Hope this helps.
