He said I was lucky it didnt catch on fire.

The only known issue with these has been faulty taillamp socket/board assys. This would not cause headlamp problems or hot wiring. Has the vehicle ever been in a collision and repaired? Sounds like a bad ground or pinched wiring somewhere.

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

2004 Trailblazer, now the brake lights wont work!


The brake lights can be the multi switch (turn signal wiper switch) or could be a ground wire issue if you're having problems with the headlights. Good luck.

Lowbeam headlights wont work, brake lights are out and check engine light is on...changed th dimmer switch, no luck


For the low beam problem, Swap relays 45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay 46 is for the Low Beams. If that fixes the light, replace the relay that cam out of position 46.
Since the high mounted brake light is working, that indicates that the brake switch is good. You need to check the bulbs in the rear tail light assembly, if they are good, check fuse #34.

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

The brake light will come on when the brake fluid is low or the parking brake is on. New brakes can make noise at first but not after 3 months. Screeching is caused by low quality pads/rotors or a lack of lubricant on brake parts and behind the pads.

The filaments could break and then make a short term contact causing your right lamp to come back on.
Check the bulbs with an ohms meter first before searching for more difficulties.
