SOURCE: with the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off

hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

SOURCE: Rear fog light won't switch off when ignition off.

Try this, make sure both bulbs are the same. Then try replacing both bulbs.Also go to fuse box usually in vehicle under glove box or steering column and change fuse for those lights.

REAR LIGHTS AND FLASHERS IS NOT WORKING


Hi there
your problem is either Light switch, broken wire from switch or from the fuse box or broken wires from switch to rear end which should run down 1 side of car coming from front to rear via in sill [thats in the side by the seats in side under the carpet either side] or it could be a earth wire broken so remove the rear light cover and turn on the rear light and touch a wire from any metal service to globe holder if it lights the globe then fir a wire to any light to earth and every thing should work.

High mount brake light stays on after ignition is turned off


The only suggestion I can make is that the turn signal switch is defective and is shorted internally. If you disconnect the turn signal/multifunction switch under the dash do the lights go out in question?

Sounds like the brake lights are staying on, which is probably a faulty brake light switch on the pedal.

I have a 2002 Volvo v70, 2.4t . The signal light on the right side stay on at all the time


I would think it is a short in the turn signal switch but I wonder how it is getting power with the key switch off.
I would unplug the switch and see if the lights go off. Could also be a short in the hazard switch.

95 accord, heater stays on after i shut it off????


Sounds like the ignition switch is shorted, it may have overheated and the wires may be touching. On a Honda the electrical part of the ignition switch can be replaced without removing the mechanical part. Remove the column cover and check for burnt wires at the switch.

Rear brake lights stay on


Hi, It is probably the switch, located at the pedal, a new one is inexpensive and easy to replace. The shorted switch will run the battery down. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!
