F150 tail light

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?

SOURCE: no brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park

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.

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

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

All fuses are good and bulbs tail lights even work. but no brake lights


Check the break switch under the break peddle. There sould be some kind of switch with a button on it that is always pushed untill you press the break peddle. The switch goes bad sometimes.

99 Chevy S10 Pickup's Tail Lights Won't Turn Off


Obviously you have a short somehow power is bleading over to this circuit. You may be forced to do some hard debuging (i.e wiring diagram, test light isolate the problem on the circuit).

If I were taking a guess I would try the following:
1) Remove the fuse for the taillight
2) If the light goes out I would start looking at the dashboard light switch
3) If the light does not go out then I would start looking toward the rear end of the truck wires that are scouffed, trailer light connections ect.

Hope this gives you a start, needless to say a short can take forever to find.

When i hook up a trailer the running lights wont work but the turn and brake lights work,sometimes the brake lights will stay on after i apply the brakes and i have to tap the brake pedal to make them go...


The things you need to check are the wires from the truck and the wireing to the trailer. If you have a 4 pin flat plug the wires are colored white,brown green and yellow.White is ground,brown is the tail light,green is right turn and stop,yellow is left turn and stop.The brake light switch on the brake peddle needs to be adjusted or replaced to cure your other problem.

Hi I have a 1989 F150 and none of the brake lights work. I checked the fuse, the brake peddle switch. Oh and the emergency flashers only work in the front.


SOUND LIKE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH COULD BE BAD.SOME CARS BRAKE LIGHT CIRCUIT SHARES THE REAR PORTION OF THE TURN SIGNAL CIRCUIT.

2007 Yukon tail stop lights wont light up


It sounds like the brake switch, that is usually located along the shaft of the brake peddle under the dash, these sometimes are in a bracket for ajustment may not be able to depress switch. Falow starting at peddle go up to dash, you should be able to see it. Hope this helps.
