Turn signal light comes on when braking

I have a 97 Toyota T100.  Just recently the right turn signal light comes on when I press on the brake pedal!?! The turning light doesn't flash when braking it just stays lit.  When I release the brake pedal everything goes back to normal.  Could I have a wiring short or a faulty signal relay?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Probably a bad grounding, causing the current to go other ways than intended i.e through other lamps. Check for corroded lamp sockets or bad ground connections in the tail light assembly, also check the lamps so they are ok.

Good luck!

Check your bulbs. It may be telling you you have a brake light bulb burnt out. Have someone push the brake while you watch. If not, get back to me.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

If you have an aftermarket trailer towing plug, that's the first place to look. There is probably a short in the wires, and when you push the brake, the signal light comes on. If not, then it will be a bare wire somewhere, probably at the back where gravel stones can hit them.

One of 2 things to have checked, if all your bulbs and connections are correct. 1-stop lamp switch module.
2-multifunction/combination switch (blinker arm/components that are in the steering column). For about a 1/2 hrs. labor cost, a mechanic should be able to test the circuits.

When braking, green turn signal lights up and right rear brake light does not come on. (have replaced brake light)


Do you have a trailer harness? If so, your harness has a short in it.
Remove it and throw it away; cheaper to replace it than to repair it.

If not, you have a short in the socket at the brake lamp

Right tail light not working when pressing brake w/ lights on.


There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.
