If you are saying the brake lights come on with the tail lights, you may have a short in the wiring or the lamp sockets. Try removing one of the bulbs at a time to see if the problem stops.

SOURCE: Headlights On, Brake lights off, tail lights off

This type of problem can be caused by bad ground connections. Find as many as you can and clean the surfaces between the loop the screw goes through and the chassis (body). Take the tail light assemblies out and find the ground wires - black wires screwed to the body. Look under the hood, Pull the headlight assemblies out if necessary and find those little guys. They are generally close to the light. Follow the wire loom back from the lights and look for the black wires coming out. Loosen the screws and work the loop back and forth against the metal. Sometimes there is paint on the metal and the screw is the only thing making the connection. Work the screw in and out snug it against the loop and rotate the loop to freshen the connection.

SOURCE: MY 2001 Buick Century's tail brake lights are not working

Your brake light switch, which is located on the brake pedal, has malfunctioned. If you replace that your pedals will go back to working. When they go bad one or more brake lights will not work when the brake pedal is pressed but will work all other times. The reason is because the light doesn't "know" that the pedal is being pressed because it isn't getting the signal from the switch. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: tail light works, brake light works but when tail

The rear tail light switch in the circuit. Remove the switch from its connect and bypass the the terminals on the connector with jumper wires and see what happens. If when you by pass the switch the tail and brake lights work you found the culprit.

SOURCE: I have no brake lights

The circuit to the taillight brake bulbs goes through the turn signal switch. Sometimes the switch can cause this problem.

I have a 1989 ford f250 my hazard lights and brake lights don't work but my turn signal and tail lights do what could it be


Hi Jonathan,

I am not positive, but believe your Hazards work on the 'high' element of your tail lights, similar to how your brake lights do. Recall, when your lights are on, your brake lights are at normal illumination; when you press on the brakes, they're on their 'high' mode. If these high elements are burnt out, they won't illuminate; and accordingly neither may your hazards. Again, not certain on the hazards using the high element, but think so.

Good luck.

Right tail light wont work. brake light, turn signal, are fine. just normal tail light. Bulb is ok, socket is ok. left side works fine.


Is there power to the socket ? Use a 12 volt (autozone about $5) test light to probe the wiring and socket.

Why would the brake lights stop working when the headlights are on in a 1998 izusu rodeo?


Well, the brake lights, and tail lights are different. Normally, when you turn your headlights on, your tail lights come on as well, because they are controlled by the same switch. If both your tail lights are not on, changing the lamps is the first thing to check. If both have stopped working at the same time though, it is likely going to be a wiring issue. You Brake lights, however, are controlled by a switch usually installed and activated by the brake pedal. If it has come loose or been damaged the your brake light will not light up when you brake. This is particularly dangerous. You should make these determinations and then repair before doing any further driving. Good luck!
