Taillights turn off when the headlights turn on

I'm guessing maybe a relay for the headlights or something but i don't have an owners manual to figure out which one it is and i don't want to bring it to a mechanic

Why do I have brake lights but no Tail light when the lights are turned on? put in new bulbs..


It is fairly common on US cars for the taillights and dash to be on the same fuse. This is apparently planned so you would know when you taillights are out. (the manual does not tell you that) If you have a owners manual, find the taillight fuse and it is probably blown.

You checked to make sure you didn't blow all the bulbs at once?
If your front park lights work, then the headlight switch is probably alright.
You may have a taillight relay in your fusebox. Check the owner's manual. It may show it.

DRL works all the time...turn lamp switch on ..don't get brighter...and highbeams don't work.


The DRL's are separate from the actual headlights. It sounds like your headlights aren't working at all. The first thing I would check would be the headlight fuse(s), or relay(s). The location for these should be in your owner's manual.

Hope this helps!

My headlights , taillights, interior lights, and radio wont come on. I checked all the fuse's under dash. Cant seem to find a fuse for the headlights though?


Welcome to Fixya

That fuse will be under the driver's side dash. Look for the fusebox there. Your owners manual will show the location of the fuse. If you don't have the manual look for a fuse marked "headlights" or something similar or pull them one by one checking to see if they are burned out.
Thank you for sing FIxya!

Taillights only turn on with the headlights, but don't turn on for braking or signals. I've checked all the fuse and relays and they are fine. Any Suggestions?


Those lights are called running lights. Have you tried new bulbs or test the wires coming into the socket for power.

Some fords have fuses for taillights, check there too.

Headlights Won't turn on, 1995 Sonoma`


Sounds like you need to check out your local public library for a service manual to find the headlight relay, or in the owner's manual. Either one will help you determine which relay is which. It would be a good idea to take notes and that way you will know which relay controls what.

2001 Grand am Lighs will not go off


I haven't seen that happen on a Grand Am yet, but my best guess is either the headlight relay is bad or the ignition switch is defective.
