STOP

Do not drive the Town Car until you get the light problem figure out.


There are two possible components at fault.


Brake switch (above the brake paddle) can jam to on position.
Move the drive seat back and dive down to check on the condition of the brake switch.


Main light switch can be on its way out.


Check both and you should be on the right track/

My bet is on the foot brake switch,

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

I'm having the same exact problem on my 95 chevy. Everything I keep reading about says to unplug any trailer wiring and to check/replace the brake light switch ($10). I haven't had a chance to try either one yet. I'll either post a success or for help asap.

Tail lights always on even when engine is off, and rear brake light wont come on


The tail lights dont have anything to do with the engine running or not.. you mean the brake lights are on? all the time? all of them, or just the one in the back window? If the back window brake light doest work the bulb is bad. If the brake lights stay on, the switch may be bad, out of adjustment, or the bumper for the switch fell out/broken.
