Sounds like the break light switch is either out of ajustment or the little plunger is stuck in and not coming back out to turn them off. the switch works off the break peddel arm under dash by the steering colume.

Brake lights


You can use a test light in place of the fuse until you find the short to ground. That way you won't go thru a box of fuses.
You'll have to eliminate the source by pulling bulbs and disconnecting wiring harnesses until the test light goes out.

My brakelights are out. is this a fuse problem


The fuse is the first thing to check. The brake lights will have a "hot at all times" fuse. Power there can be easily checked with a voltmeter or test light.
The brake light switch near the top of the brake pedal, will likewise have a hot wire to it ("hot at all times"). Pull the connector to the switch and check for power with a test light. From the switch, the signal goes straight to the bulbs. If you have power all along available and still no lights, the ground for the brake lights needs to be found and checked.

I have a 2004 Ford F150 STX my taillights, brake lights, and both rear turn signals which fuse and relay controls these items.


you can pull negative battery cable and put test light on negative battery post, when lights up pull a fuse from fuse panel and if light goes out then thats where the short is, if light stays on then go to the next fuse

Battery draining overnight. Noticed today that my headlghts don'y turn off when parking brake is on. The battery is new. Any ideas?


sounds like you have a draw put a test light between the the positive post on your battery and the cable if the test light goes on then something is not turning off pull each fuse one at a time till the test light goes out when it goes out that is your bad circuit be sure to replace each fuse after you check to see if the test light goes out

2001 chevy tracker ,what would cause the fuse for brake lights to blow? already tried unplugging wire harness to back of car at fuse block.


This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.

1999 ford tarus dome light and brakes stay on for long time when i shut off the car draining my battery continuously. I need to know how and where I can find the switch, and how to flip it. Also I am not...


Hi


Check the brake-pedal switch. This small button behind the brake pedal is activated when you press down on the brake pedal and makes the brake light go on. Press the switch by hand to see if it's stuck. If it is, pressing it may force the stuck part.

Find the fuse for the brake light and pull it out. Remember to put it back in before driving again

Find the brake light bulbs and remove them. Remember to put them back in before driving again.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. You will have to reconnect it again to start and drive your car.

For the dome lights this can be a symptom that can be caused by a bad door switch. A bad switch could be sending a door open condition to the computer .Also check the dome light switch first. Make sure the right setting is being used. Normally it has 3 settings (1 - on always, 2 - on when door is open, 3 - off always). If the setting is on 2 and the problem still exists then check and/or replace the door jamb switches. These exist in each door jam and switch the light on and off based on a whether the door is open or closed.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
