This problem likely is the filaments touching in one of the dual filament bulbs used for the brake lights. Another sign of this would be the dash illumination lights coming on when the headlights are off and the brake pedal is pressed. The solution is to replace the defective bulb.

SOURCE: headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works

I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.

SOURCE: Headlights/heater fan/wipers don't work. e-brake light on faintly

Check your taillight bulbs. Usually the interior accessories are connected to the taillight circuit as a warning system for when your laillight or breaklight bulbs are blown

The brake light on the driver side is not working when the headlight are off, when the headlight are on the are fine.


Replace the brake bulb for that side. The brake bulbs have two filaments. Don't put the single ones. One is for when you press the brakes and the other is for when you run the lights at night it stays on all the time.

On My 1998 Toyota Camy when the car is on my brakes lights wont go off but if the car its off the brake light work fine why??


These Toyotas had daytime running lights. The headlights and the taillights turn on when you start the car. If you press the brake pedal, the rear lights (and the brake light in the rear window) should come on brighter.

I have never heard of the brake light staying on (The brighter filament in the two-filament bulb). Hope this helps.

When I turn on my headlights my brake lights stay on all the time without applying the break pedal. They work fine when the headlights are not on.


Brake pedal you mean. Electrical short somewhere. Somehow power is flowing from the headlight circuit to the brake light circuit. Pull the fuse for the brake lights to see if they stay off, this may help you to isolate the problem. You have to trace the wiring (and test voltages along the way) with the help of the wiring diagram. It's possible corrosion somewhere is also the problem.

When headlight are on and hit the beake pedal only the 3rd brake light comes on the rest are stuck . When i release brake pedal it seems like i am driving with my brake light on . but my headlight off...


It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.
