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

Hi!

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

My taillights went out after towing a trailer. I checked all fuses including the drivers side panel and under the hood but found no blown fuses. The brake and turn signals work


I would check to see if you are getting power back to the socket, when the taillights should be on. Also, check for continuity of the taillight bulbs.

2005 Kia Spectra - brake lights on tail lights are not working but the brake light above the hatch is working. Have checked fuses. Any ideas?


Check around in that trunk for loose wires. Especially a grounding wire at the taillights. Sometimes in our hurry to shove stuff in the trunk it's possible to disconnect, or cut a wire... If you've got the 'cyclops" light working on the hatch, then there's power back there, just look around and I'm sure you locate a loose or damaged wire... trace them back from the taillights and look close for cuts, frays, damage, loose connection..
