    OK then got lots a friends down there ..but still is it brake lights or running lights ?

    they simply dont go out ..when you say turned the relay off ? what is meant did you pull the fuse to the lights to get them out ...i am thinking if you say "mash " the brakes that perhaps the brake light is stuck ..or / on the other hand the running lights don't go off the front goes out correct ? , it is a faulty switch or lever do you have tilt wheel ? many an issue resides within the steering column and running light hi beam lever ...over time the wires /friction etc will cause the wires inside to break and cause this type of issue ........1st ensure the brake light to the pedal is not stuck look to the brake pedal and as you press teh pedal if not already obvious look see what it touches to cause the brake lights to happen if you will ..}{work }
    run your finger over the switch to make sure it is disengaging it should pop out like that of a ball point pen if not there lyes the issue ..otherwise it may very wel be the lever or the if on dash the switch itself
    but if i remember correctly its should be lever at the wheel and a switch at the dash
    to figure out well 1st i need to know if its running lights or brake lights


  • Duane Morse
    Duane Morse Dec 13, 2009

    okay the brake lights have 2 filaments and will be extremely bright as to say "STOP" correct a lesser running light is there but no warnings ....so as i said 1st look to the brake light switch itself as i previously stated and you should clear the issue from there

    if on the other hand it is not the case please contact me or another representative and we will help remedy {cure the issue at hand} thank you

Relay fuse for park lamps on 2004 Buick Rendevous. Where is it located?


Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LPS fuse in the underhood fuse block, supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM will then energize the park lamp relay coil control circuit. Current flow is now from the park lamp relay to the park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G100 and G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G401 and G402. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G401. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lights are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.

04 Nissan maxima tail lghts don't always come on right away thought maybe headlight switch not sure need help


Download 2004 Nissan Maxima Lighting System Section LT PDF Manual 190 Pages Do you know how to do electrical testing with volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a BCM is ? COMPUTER !
Control of the parking, license plate, and tail lamp operation is dependent upon the position of the lighting switch (combination switch). When the lighting switch is placed in the 1ST position, the BCM (body control module) receives input signal requesting the parking, license plate, side marker and tail lamps to illuminate. This input signal is communicated to the IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) across the CAN communication lines. The CPU (central processing unit) of the IPDM E/R controls the tail lamp relay coil. This relay, when energized, directs power to the parking, license plate, rear side marker and tail lamps, which then illuminate.
Testing starts at 134

Tail lights not working fuse is good bulbs are good. What do I need to check now. 2008 Pontiac G6


What fuse is good ? Did you check fuse in rear fuse box ? Also did you check park lamp relay .
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail, and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay switch contacts. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block also supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay coil. When the park lamps are turned ON, the body control module (BCM) energizes the park lamp relay. Current flow is from the PARK LAMP relay to their respective park and marker lamps and to ground. Ground is provided at G101, G102, G401, and G403.

I'm needing the wiring diagram for my 2007 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.5 tail lights.


Go to http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams ! You having tail light problems ? Do you know how they work ?

They are turned on by the BCM !
Park, Tail, Marker and License Lamps
The park, tail, license, and marker lamps are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the HEAD or PARK lamp positions, or anytime the automatic light control (ALC) turns the headlamps ON. When the headlamp switch is placed in the park lamp or headlamp positions, ground from G202 is applied through the signal circuit to the BCM indicating the park lamp request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the park lamp relay control circuit energizing the PARK LP PCB Relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, both park lamp fuses, and the supply voltage circuits illuminating the park, tail marker, and license lamps. Ground for the left front park and marker lamps is provided at G101 and the right front park and marker lamps at G100. Ground for all rear lamps is provided at G302.
Turn Signal Lamps
The LT T/SIG and RT T/SIG fuses located in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the body control module (BCM) for turn signal and hazard lamp operation. When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G202 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. The BCM also sends a message via GMLAN to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the turn signal indicator ON and OFF depending on the position of the turn signal switch.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
?€¢
G101 provides ground for the left front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G100 provides ground for the right front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G302 provides ground for the left and right rear turn signal lamps

My 04 Suzuki DR200SE tail light /brake light is not working. Brake lights works in park mode not in ON with engine running or not. Tail light not in either mode. Volt meter shows the socket is working...


You will probably get better answers by asking a Motorcycle Expert. You are listed here under Cars and Trucks.

Check the internet for a Repair Manual. Sometimes the Makers site will have download info. Search under caption of your cycle, add Repair,Repair Manual, Wiring diagrams, etc.

If you have a light Relay, the power to it probably comes through the Ignition switch as a tickler circuit. The Relay may direct connect the lights with power after the tickler has activated the Relay. This gives you a redundancy with the light switch interrupting the Ignition signal to the light Relay.

If the lights can be turned on without the ignition being on, thats another matter.

Did you check the taillight bulb with an Ohmmeter? Does the headlamp work? The Headlamp and taillight go on the same time. If the headlamp is not on, the taillight will be off too.

Rear lights not working on 2002 suzuki grand vitara


In the underdash fuse/relay box, the 15A TAIL fuse feeds power to the coil of headlight relay 2. When the combination switch is set to TAIL, the relay closes and the outer tail lamps light. In the same underdash fuse/relay box, the 20A STOP fuse feeds power to the brake light switch. When the brake pedal is pressed, the inner brake lamps light. The underdash fuse/relay box also contains the 10A TURN BACK fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and the turn signal relay. Relay output is fed to the combination switch and turn signal power is applied to the selected middle tail light. The fourth fuse in the underdash fuse/relay box is the 15A HAZARD fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and turn signal relay. When the hazard switch is set, the turn lamps on both sides begin flashing.

2001 Monte Carlo SS 3.8 v6 Rear park lights are out as well as the dash lights, brake lights work headlights work front running and park lights work, all turn signal lights work. replaced headlight switch...


Park, Tail, Marker Lamps, and License
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, turn on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or the HEAD position, or anytime the headlamps are requested. The RT I/P #1 fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and to the park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay coil control circuit.
Current flows from the park lamp relay switch to both front and rear park lamp fuses and to their respective park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lamps from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lamps are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or until the battery runs dead.

Did you the REAR PARK LP fuse 15 amp in the right insturment panel fuse box.
