Question about Cars & Trucks
Sometimes the brake lights turn on on my truck without stepping on the peddle. I had the brake switch on the peddle changed, but once in a while the tail lights come on, none in the front, just the back lights. if I hit my dash board on the top, the lights will turn off, but then once in a while will turn on again, draining my battery. Any suggestions?
Sounds like the brake switch is not adjusted down far enough check it

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

SOURCE: no tail lights
you most likely have a short somewhere. some vehicles were designed with radio controls on the back of the steering wheel im not sure when they started doing it but thats all i can think of for the radio
