    Feedback from a bad turn signal switch or bulb can cause this.

SOURCE: Brake Lights Come On With The Running Lites

Hi... On your VOLVO this problem can be a WRONG BULB. On any one of the sockets.
OK.. The TAILS Lights and STOP lights it's use the Same BULB. But with DOUBLE CONTACT. "1157"
But ONLY on WAGON Models.
ON sedan Use a individual BULB for each one.

I recomend Remove the stop LIGHTS BULBS.
Inpect and be sure to have 2 CONNTACT.
Replace if need.
I'm sure this gonna fix your problem.
OK Now, the Center light work Because use a Individual CIRCUIT. And signal from the Little MODULE Called.
BULB FAIL SENSE MODULE.

OK... I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

SOURCE: 1988 ford thunderbird brake lights and turn signals not working

When this happens the problem is most likely the multi-funtion switch aka turn signal switch. Check to see if the 3rd brakelight comes on when the brake pedal is pushed. If so replace the MFS. The 3rd brakelight in late 80's fords bypasses the turnsignal switch.

SOURCE: Brake lights wnt wrk when pushing dwn brake, but park lights do

As cadman mention to check the fuse, and if there ok check your brake light switch along the brake peddle arm. Before you doany of that, turn your hazard light on to make sure that all your light's are not burnt out. Good luck

SOURCE: no brake lights

Took my Trailblazer to dealership. They replaced both rear tail light socket boards (these are plastic parts that house all of the rear lamps/bulbs and attach to tail light housing) They advised the sockets in the boards have a tendency to go bad. Everything works just fine. Cost of each part was approximately $29.00. Easy to replace yourself and save the labor.

SOURCE: Idle goes up and down, check engine light on, brakes hard to push

Check engine for vacuum leaks at all hoses, hose connections, intake gasket etc. I have also seen retarded engine timing produce low vacuum. If no leaks, check anything in control system that controls timing...however, I believe you will find a leak before you need to go there. Also check Idle control valve and egr valve for malfunction or blockages.

!997 Ford Thuderbird brake lights and hazards do not work


Lets start at the beginning.
The turn signals and brake lights use different fuses but both go thru the turn signal switch and use the same bulbs.
Have you checked the fuses for each circuit and does each switch have power in and out ?

Brake lights are a no go on 2000 Mitsubishi Galant


it is going to be a ground issue. I would start by testing the brake switch. The way the brake lights come on is by pushing the pedal it makes a ground that completes the circuit. The problem you have is the ground is ocurring someplace else. I would recommend if you are mechanically inclined that you get a wiring schematic for the vehicle and trace the grounding wire for that circuit.
