Brake lights go on but when headlights are on and i press the brake they go off the brake lights go offf


Brad V's "bad ground" is most likely cause. I'd start investigating with the tail lights. (Not the headlights, but they may also be an issue.) Confirm all bulbs on both sides are good. That includes running lights, brake lights, turn signals and reverse. Some bulbs may have dual-function, the 3157 bulb in the J2K is one that serves stop-light (brake) and tail/running lights. Replace if suspect. Make sure the bulbs are mounted correctly. Rust can cause a poor ground so you might have to replace the socket or fixture if it is grounded to the fixture. By any chance do the turn signals also have issues? Or the emergency flash switch bulbs?

My honda accord 2001 is having brake light issues. 3 of the 4 "lower" brake lights will not work and the dash board light is on. The trunk lid lights are working fine. When I put the bulbs from...


Some bulbs are dual function and others are single function. You may be installing the wrong type bulbs in the sockets. Look in the sockets and see if there are two contacts at the base, or a single contact. You can look at the base of the bulbs and see if they have two solder connectors or a single on. Sounds like you need to recheck all your brake sockets to be sure.

I've had this problem before. What I found was a bulb socket which was wired for two filaments and a single filament bulb was plugged in the socket. A single element bulb will set between the two filament socket and effectively short the two.

Brake light passenger side is out. After changing the bulb, will not light. Wires look in good shape, not corrosion or breaks. While putting the fixture back into place, quickly came on then went off...


The problem is suspected to be the 'contacts' at the base of the bulb socket/holder/fixture - poor contact. If the contact point overheated and it melted (then 'sank' into its holder/fixture, then replace the bulb socket.

Check the rear bulbs,and see if they are burned out,check to see if a double element bulb is in the socket,not a single element bulb.

Toyota avalon headliight lamp replacement


there is a single phillups screw that hold the turn signal housing to the head lamp. remove this screw. after that the turnsignal housing will be loose but act as though something is still holding it. I usually take a small flat tip screw driver and place between the headlight and turnsignal housing about a quarter of the way down and pry the turn signal housing forward and out at the same time while puling with my free hand. Since this lamp fixture is difficult to get a grip on, the flathead screwdriver is used only to help pull the lamp fixture from the fender. After the fixture is in the open the actual lamp socket twist locks into position from behind. once the socket is removed the bulb simply slides straight out from the socket. Installation is reverse of removal.

When brake pedal pressed side lights come on


hello zeeko1 , over here when that happens its because someone put a single element bulb where a double element bulb goes , now this bulb you take out to fix the problem , look at the bottom of the socket see if it has 1 contact point , then look into the hole where the bulb goes , i bet you see 2 contacts , this single contact bulb is shorting out into the other circuit back feeding voltage to other circuit . cheers mate !

Thanks for using FIX YA !
