Dash lights won't come on but they do when I step on the brakes??

So I went to drive my car last night, all regular lights came on but my dash lights. I started driving to see what would change, step on the brakes and the dash lights come on. Happened the whole time, im sure it's a short or fuse problem but I'm wondering how to fix a short yourself???? Any suggestions???

2001 4Runner. Car security went bust first, then the horn stopped working, then the hazard lights. Now, the brakes as well. Any help please?


All except the brakes sound like fuses failing, or wires breaking. A quick check of the fuse box should remedy those.

What do you mean by "the brakes"?

does the pedal go to the floor without stopping the truck?
do the brake lights not come on?
is the brake indicator on the dash on?

need a little more to go on

Parking lights, tail lights, and dash lights dont work


i assume you have checked all lighting fuses. if you have not, start there. do you have brake lights? if you do have brake and head lights then i would suspect the dimmer/light switch.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

Assuming you have checked all fuses, the next step would be to locate central grounding points (there may be several) and remove and clean battery terminals and the remote ends of the cables at their attachment points.Locating some of these may be easier with a manual covering the electrical system of the car:
Sebring manual
When removing battery cables, always start with the negative cable first and reattaching it last.

My 97 ford escort last night when I got out still had the brake lights on. when I went to fix the problem the lights went out and then when i went to put the car in drive the car will not get out of park.


I would replace, or at least look at the brake switch under the dash connected to the bracket in front of the barke pedel. it does double duty. Brake lights and shift lock release.
