The problem is in the switch down on your brake pedal. It's adjustable, sounds like your button on this switch is staying out rather than going in when you release the brake. Good luck.

My brake lights stay on whan I turn on my lights o0n at night on my 2002 chevy trail blazer


If the brake lights come on with the taillights, its probably a short in one of the tail lamp sockets.

Have 2005 Dodge Magnum with LED tail lights. Brake lights come on when headlights come on and stay that way. Changed brake light switch but that did not help.


The only place I know of where the parking light circuit and brake light circuit can meet up is in the tail light housings. They both use the same ground circuit.
Its possible one of the lamp panels has shorted out.
You may have to get a used shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to be able to troubleshoot it.

Where is located the relay for the tail lights


Under ya hood in the fuse box. There is a relay that will blow when it is shorted out. Look on the inside of the cover and you will see just which one it is.... You can replace it with another one to see if the relay is bad or not......

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

Brake lights stay on when headlights are on even when I'm not braking. 2001 mitsubishi montero sport


It is possible that you have a bad brake light switch that is sticking. (However, this will usually happen all the time, not just with the headlamps on.)

You MAY have a defective bulb. Sometimes the wires inside a bulb will "warp" from heat and cause a short in the bulb where the tail/brake filaments will touch each other.

Also make sure that all of the tail/brake lamp bulbs are the CORRECT bulbs for the vehicle.

A bulb that is installed incorrectly can also cause this.

If you have trailer wiring on your Montero, this is also a likely source of a short between the tail/brake lamps.

Finally, check the sockets to make sure they are not shorted.

Tail lights stay on


Check the brake light switch attached to the top of the brake pedal. (It will be up under the dash and might be hard to see.) This switch activates the brake lights when the brake pedal moves or allows to move a button on the switch. If the switch gets out of position, the brake lights might not operate properly.

Another possibility is that the switch is bad.

Brake lights dont work untill i turn the lights on, then stay on


Hi, are the tail lights and the brake lights in the same light unit?
If so, there is a possibility the bulbs are in the wrong way. If it is a stop/tail bulb then there are two locating pegs on the side of the metal part. If you look, one is higher than the other which has to locate into the correct slot in the holder.

Another possibility is the bulb is wrong, there are double and single contacts. Check the contact on the base of the bulb is the same as the contacts in the holder.
