Hello. My 85 Chevy 3\4 ton 350 ci truck has its taillights on all the time. The brake lights work as well as the turn signals. But the damn things won't turn off. I have to unhook battery.

If the tail lamps are staying on, that means the parking lights are on including the front, right ?
That could be the headlight switch.
If the brake lights are staying on, that could be the brake switch.

Parking +taillights wont shut off

Is the problem that the lamps stay on indefinitely? I would suspect the headlamp switch first, because it is where the circuit is powered. Does this Aurora have anything like Twilight Sentinel? It could also be a cause, if it is in the off position and the lamps stay on. Twilight Sentinel uses a timer and a relay, either of which could have gone bad. Then again, if you have something laying on the dash that may be covering up the photocell (usually in the center at the bottom of the windhield), then the BCM (body control module) thinks it's always dark and the lights won't turn off right away even in broad daylight.

sounds like a sticking relay, over heating relay. check the fuse/ relay box in the engine bay there should be a headlamp relay in there.

2003bmw sedan headlight,taillight,parking light feed of the same currency;the dashboard headlight stays on!

Not very clear as what your problem is...
Headlights run off their own fuse, as they require more power to function, parking lights run off a lower current fuse, what dashboard light stays on, the high beams?
Please reword problem.

I have a 1993 chevy 1500 and everytime i turn on the parking or headlight my right turn signal wont blink and stays on , also when i have the lights off and step on the brake the parking lights go on

Sounds like you 've got a cross connection in the rear right taillight bulb, or wiring to that area.
Start by pulling the bulbs out and checking if it makes any difference with the bulb removed. Check the brake pedal...see if the parking lights still come on.
Look at the bulb socket contacts, and the bulb contacts and look for black marks, or burned out filament in the bulb.. if everything looks good there, start tracing the wiring back and look for cuts or a place where the wiring may have been pinched, cut, bared etc. if your right turn signal isn't working and the parking lites are getting triggered, it's got to be in that right rear taillight or wiring...

2005 Kia Sorento. When the taillights are on, the

somebody put a 'single filament' bulb in a 'dual' filament socket. You have a 'short-circuit' between the parking lamps and the brake lamps.

Tail lights just up and died...

Do your park lights still work? Do your dash lights still work? check all fuses especially the one for park/taillights

1998 XJ8 Vanden Plas taillight problem

Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
