My tail lights sometimes will stay on when I turn car off, and it drains battery; but if I leave it on auto lights it


Are you sure these are not the brake lights? I think they are. Go under the dash above the brake pedal and disconnect the brake light switch and see if the brake lights go off, if so replace the switch or adjust it.

Tail lights work but brake light doesn't. its the same bulb for tail and brake lights


Hi!
Maybe you have a problem with a brake switch or the bulbs. because the bulb has two heads in side one for the brakes and one for the tail lights. take the bulb out ad see if the both heads are ok and not broken, They are just tow springs. If they look ok,Then check the brake switch thats usually under brake pedal. Good luck

Any Thumbs Up would be appreciated.

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.

Tail lights don't work, but brake, flash and hazzard work.


generally when the fuse is ok and the bulb is ok the problem is corrosion of the ground wire and connection to the frame, or corrosion in the bulb sockets. for starters go to any auto parts store and get an aerosol can of contact cleaner especially for auto bulbs and connections.

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.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
