2005 chevy trailblazer - no cruise control and brake lights only work when key is turned off


I would check the turn signal switch. The cruise and turn signal are on the same switch. The brake lights go through the switch before going to the brake lights. And the turn signals don't work with the ignition off.

Wiring problem-between motor and starter


You need to post more about this problem. Answer some of these questions and provide the brand of Vehicle and Model.
1. Is there a click when you turn the key to start?
2. Are the lights and controls bright or do they dim significantly when you turn the key to start?
3. Will the Brake lights come on when the Brake is pressed. If no, check under the dash at the switch on the upper Brake pedal lever. If broken or loose, service until the Brake lights start working.
4. Include this info and consider reposting the request with the new info.

2000 Jimmy - starts but can't shift into gear - can't push button in


Check ALL the fuses !!! Does the brake lights work? if not,, the shift inter lock may be disabled ,,, if the lights work the interlock solenoid might be the culprit . You should be able to get in gear by turning the ignition switch off then turning to the first selection ,,don't turn it untill the dash lights come on ,,with the key in that position you should be able to shift the lever to put it in gear ,,,,dont move the key untill its in the correct gear

1998 VW Jetta GL . When I Put My Hand Break Down , Brake Light On Dashboard Doesnt Come Off Completly , In That Case HeadLights Wont Come On When HeadLight Swtich Is On .


the emergency brake needs adjusting. the cover around the e-brake should be removed, and behind the e-brake arm should be a cable and tighten the nut on the end of the cable until the slack is removed from the cable. turn nut, then turn key to accessory, then release e-brake , see if the brake light goes off, if not turn off ignition, tighten e-brake nut again, turn key back to accessory release e-brake, see if light goes off. do this until you see e-brake light on dash go out. headlights should come on.

My gear shift i stuck in park


check your brake light if they are working, if they do not work then your brake light switch is bad.
if the brake light is working, the shift inter-lock solenoid may be bad.
there is a small slot next to the gear shifter, put a key in there and push down while you shift out of park.

Key fob won't unlock or lock car VW Golf 2000


You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.

2000 crown victoria -brake lites failed


You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
