Sounds like a common brake pedal switch failure, try unplugging the switch if the lights go out its almost guaranteed the switch if they stay on start checking wiring for a short to power

My tail and brake lights don't work and I can't depress my hazard switch. I think they're related. Any ideas?


obvious first step for the rear lights is check the fuse's , if ok then i would check there is power getting to the rear bulb clusters, if there is then check the bulb seat's of the bulb holders for corrosion , cracking etc , as i assume it's both side's i would think it's more likely a wiring fault but carry out the checks first as will quickly eliminate many things , as for the hazard switch i would think it is a coincidence,but to confirm remove the switch and unplug the connector then see if the lights work , if they do then you will need a new hazard switch , hope this is helpful

Brake light stop working


I can't imagine three brake lights all losing their grounds. You will need a volt meter to check (with the help of an assistant) to see if about 12 volts is available at the bulb socket's brake light socket (as measured to ground) when the brake pedal is depressed and held. Do the same for the other light and finally the third brake light. If there is a total loss of power at all the bulb sockets with the brake pedal depressed and held, check for about 12 volts coming to the brake pedal switch while not being depressed and that voltage comes out the other connection at the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If power comes in on one wire but doesn't come out the other side when pressing the pedal this means the switch is bad. Replace it with a new one. Ne advised that SOME vehicles brake lights don't come on if the key is off, on most they work at all times even if the key is off.

I do not know for sure, but it sounds like you have a short some where. You might want to start looking for bare wires around that tail light that first started giving you all of the problems. I hope this helps you solve the problem

Brake Lights do not work and hazard button is stuck


I could not tell you how many times people have brought their cars into my shop and tell me that they had already checked all fues and they are OK, then I check the car and find a blown fuse or a fuse that is completely missing.

Your dash (Instrument Cluster) illumination lights are powered by the "PARK LP" fuse in the underhood fuse panel - it is fuse number 37 and should be a 20 Amp fuse. If this fuse is blown, your Park lights on the exterior of the car will also not be working. If they are working and your dash lights are not, then the problem is probably in your headlamp switch.

Your Brake lights are powered by the "STOP LAMP" fuse in the instrument panel (IP) fuse block it is a 15 Amp fuse.

Your Hazzard lights are powered by the "HAZZARD" fuse in the (IP) also a 15 Ap fuse.

If both of these fuses are good, then the most likely problem with your brake and hazzard lamps is the multifunction (Turn Signal) switch.

What any of the above has to do with replacing your window regulators remains a mystery.
