I have a '03 Sonata. One of the brake lights went out when it was new. I had the dealership fix it since it was still under warranty. Since then, I have replace it 4 or 5 times. First other problem was the cruise did not work when my lights were on. Next, the dash light started coming on when I hit the brakes. Then, the parking lights would come on when I hit the brakes. After that, the cd player started turning on and off by itself. All of this has been going on for 3-4 years. I had searched the web, and everybody said they had problems but the dealerships could not resolve them. I didn't have the money to try to get it fixed. It would not pass inspection last week because the brake light was dim. The mechanic said the wrong light was in there (remember, first replaced by dealership, then I bought lights from auto parts store that specified my make and model). He grabbed up what he knew was the right bulb, and THAT FIXED ALL MY ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS! I hope this info will help some other folks.

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

Tail lights work but brake light doesn't. its the same bulb for tail and brake lights


Hi!
Maybe you have a problem with a brake switch or the bulbs. because the bulb has two heads in side one for the brakes and one for the tail lights. take the bulb out ad see if the both heads are ok and not broken, They are just tow springs. If they look ok,Then check the brake switch thats usually under brake pedal. Good luck

Any Thumbs Up would be appreciated.

Problems with brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


YES -- process of elimination. Obviously there's a short circuit in the Brake/Headlight circuits - right? Blown fuse(s) is/are evident of this -- would you agree? Which fuse(s) is/are blowing? An analysis tells you that the only time a fuse blows is when the headlamps are turned on -- correct? Otherwise, brake lights work normally -- right? OK. Head lamps have relays which turn them on. Here's a wiring diagram of the 2000 Hyundai Sonata (NOT the Jeep Grand Cherokee)
7a9e354.jpg a663f53.gif It would appear the problem is with one or more bulbs or sockets or both. As you many notice, there are no connections between the headlamps and brake lamps except the parking lamps (which share the bulbs/sockets)
c7068ec.gif When the headlamps are turned on, so does the tail lamp relay. As you can see, these bulbs/sockets are 'DUAL' filament to ground (series-parallel circuit). Just a guess here - the short is in one of the lower rear brake/parking lamp bulbs/sockets.... just a guess.

Tail lights and brake lights not working - not fuse - what can it be?


Brake light switch, located on upper brake pedal should be checked, that is most likely your brake light issue, but U say tail lights aren't working, but running lights do, tail lights and running lights I would consider to be the same, so can u clarify that for me? Let me know how the u do w/ brake light switch, and if u have issue w/ tail lights?
