Hello. My 85 Chevy 3\4 ton 350 ci truck has its taillights on all the time. The brake lights work as well as the turn signals. But the damn things won't turn off. I have to unhook battery.


If the tail lamps are staying on, that means the parking lights are on including the front, right ?
That could be the headlight switch.
If the brake lights are staying on, that could be the brake switch.

Headlights taillights stay


it's running hot because of the battery. For example, some fuses are hot at all times, and some are hot manually with car running for instance. Try wiring the positive to a source that is hot only when the car is running.

I turn my car on and then turn the headlights on. The taillights do not come on. When I turn my car off my taillights come on.When I leave my car in the off position then I turn my headlights just to park...


Sounds like your lights switch is coming apart. Recommend you remove the switch and test it with an ohmmeter. To remove the switch, pull the knob straight off, reach behind the dash and push in the 3 tabs (top, left, and right side) holding the switch in, pull the switch back under the dash, and remove the connector. To test, use the pinouts shown on the diagram below and the switch pictured. Basically, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm resistance to pin 7 in the OFF position and no continuity elsewhere. Similarly, in PARK, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 and no continuity elsewhere. In the HEAD position, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 4 and none elsewhere.

If the switch has failed as I suspect, you will find that in the OFF position, pin 2 will have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 rather than pin 7.
Let me know if you have questions.

Tail lights stay on when car is off


Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps

My headlights wont turn off on my 2003 dodge intrepid


I own the same year make and model. The headlights are supposed to stay on for a few minutes if you shut them off after shutting off the engine. This is a safety feature. These are the headlights only. If the lights, side markers and taillights stay on, then the issue is most likely the switch. You will have to pull the switch and disconnect the wiring harness to confirm this. If the lights go out, then the switch is bad.
However, if the lights don't go out, or the headlights never shut off until they drain the battery, you may want to take the car in to get diagnosed. There could be an issue with the body control module or wiring. Most likely, it is the switch as Chrysler uses the cheapest parts for their switches, but I would check it first and not swap parts. All you have to do to check the switch is pull the bezel it sit in out of the dash. The switch is held in with two screws.

Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
