Check the brake lamp switch, chances are it is faulty.

How can I turn off the rear parking lights


Normally all parking lights are controlled by the light switch. First turn turn on the parking lights and second turn turns on the head lights.

Are you sure it is not your break lights staying on? if this is your break lights - look at break pedal for break light switch staying on or not adjusted correctly. Does your car battery gets drained from your break lights staying on?

Break lights and blinkers not working


If you put the tester on the outlets and it lights up properly but the bulbs dont, you have already concluded that the wiring isn't the problem. unless of course the wires are corroded and simply putting the bulb in shorts it out. Have you tested the bulbs?

2009 aura saturn top brake light stays on


Hello! All the brake lights are controlled in part by the Stop Lamp Relay (#49)...When you tap your brakes all the brake lights come on ...Then off...For only the top mounted light to come on when you do not tap your brakes would require a wire (Light Blue in color) to be touching battery in the harness...question is; When you see the top light come on are you certain the other brake lights are off?...Have you had someone monitor the lights when the problem happens? If only the top mounted light is malfunctioning the problem isn't a component, as such, but a wiring fault (which I can find)...If you as the driver only see the top light come on and assume the other brake lights are off It is more then likely the relay mentioned earlier or a defective Brake Pedal Position sensor...

Tell me if you are certain only the top mounted brake light comes on by itself...And I'll take it from there....Guru...Saailer

The break lights won't light when i push the breaks but they work for every thing else like 4ways turn signal but when i go to stop they dont light up i replaced the switch and the bulbs but still dont...


When you replaced the brake light switch did you adjust it so that it contacts when it should?
It isn't enough to just replace it, you need to adjust the pedal height to specifications in order to make the brake lights work correctly.

Our Breaks are working on our 2001 volkswagon beetle but the break light stays on plus all the other lights on the dash stays on


ALL the other lights? Like, just all the brake related lights or everything? Brake lights will come on for multiple reasons, particular on VWs... they actually have pad wear sensors in them unlike other cars.

Brake lights stay on when engine is off. Pulled fuse out and replaced. Lights still stay on


I would say your break switch is stuck. It is a round chrome cylinder above your break pedal. The break stem hits it when you push down the break. Try to loosen the button. It is stuck.
