If brake lights remain on then inspect brake light switch. Brake light switch is located on top of brake pedal arm bracket. It is either out of adjustment or faulty.

SOURCE: ''96 Silverado no tail lights.

if that doesn't help, you might want to check the bulbs. the damage might have shorted which burned out the bulbs. but you do have one wire that runs to the rear and splits off to the tail lights. the wire should run back to the head light switch via a fuse. the headlights have its own relay. but i hope it is just a fuse.

if all the bulbs are good might be a brake lamp controller. check the brake bulbs again.

SOURCE: tail lights stay on when car is off

Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps

My brake lights stay on whan I turn on my lights o0n at night on my 2002 chevy trail blazer


If the brake lights come on with the taillights, its probably a short in one of the tail lamp sockets.

I have a 2001 pontiac aztek. The parking lamps and the tail lights will NOT shut off unless I disconnect the battery. The car also has a warning light that comes on and reads "Park Lamps Out". How do I fix...


Check brake switch near brake pedal most often it will be broken. sometimes you can try pulling up on the brake pedal to get the light to go out for a sec if that works it is the brake light switch. usually the warning light is tied to the actual light sockets it is also possible that the brake light switch went bad and from the tail lights staying on so long it may have melted the wires at the tail lights and now causing the warning light to light.

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

When i press the brake the dashboard lights turn on


Possible that the brake light switch shorts with the circuit, sometimes this can be a brake switch ground shorting through the dash boarrd ground circuit and turns the light on.
You need to disconnect the brake switch and trace the line. also check if the rear brake lamp circuit is shorting in the tail lamp assembly and so turns the dash /park light circuit ON.
This can happen if the tail lamp assembly /holder is shorting. So remove and check the tail lamp circuit/ the park/brake lights.

Tail lights do not work. Bulbs are good. Both fuses are good(separate cicuits). What else could it be? Is there a relay involved? Could the switch be defective? thanks! Mike


All the exterior lights run threw the turn signal switch. Except the high mount brake light. If you are talking about brake lights replace the TS switch. Parking lights are a little different. If you have no parking lights front and back, TS switch. If you have front and no back, ground problem. Grounds for the back are usually on the drivers side mounted to the frame.
