Check for chauffed wiring under dash around steering column and brake pedal, as for your rear brake/side light you have probably put the bulb in the wrong position remove bulb and rotate and retry

Why are al my lights coming on when I mash the brake peddle or use left turn signal


Spray electrical cleaner in where the emergency flasher switch is. Turn it on/off rapidly several times. Spray into the directional switch, too. Dirty contacts there are a common source of trouble. Might need a new multi-function switch if cleaning does not fix it.

I changed the stereo in my 1993 pajero now the dash and parking lights don't work what could this be


To start, a fuse. The radio receives a signal or feed from the interior lights so that it will dim or brighten with the interior and dash lights. during the radio installation it may be that this wire was left off and not insulated, or used as a power lead, etc.

Start by checking your fuses, the interior dash lights and exterior marker lights are on the same fuse, so start by finding a burned fuse, replace it with same size, and then do this: Without turning the key on at all, try your lights and see if they work... if they do not, and the fuse blows immediately, that wire is shorted to ground, either touching a metal part of the inner dash or hard-wired incorrectly to the radio. It may be that it was mistaken as a ground wire during the change-out.

If after replacing the fuse, the lights come on, then turn the radio on and see if it blows. Whether it does nor not, the first place to check is the last place changes were made. If you return to check the wiring to the radio and cannot find the problem, disconnect the radio entirely, turn the lights on with a good fuse in place, then reconnect the wires one by one, keeping an eye on the lights, when they go off (fuse blows), that is the wire that is either mis-assigned or can be left off. Most newer radios are all led and it is not necessary to send a signal to it from the lights. Good Luck!

This means you have an electrical problem ! An without doing some testing with a volt meter an looking at a wiring diagram to isolate the circuits from the ones with the problem i would be guessing , just like anyone else on here would be doing . Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? How to read an use a wiring diagram .It is true a bad diode inside the alternator can cause excess AC voltage ripple , causing lights to flicker ! If i were to guess i'd say there is a ground issue and voltage is back feeding through one of the lamp circuits . But also looking at a wiring diagram i see the brake light switch feeds B+ voltage to the center high mount stop lamps and to and through the turn signal switch .to the right and left lower stop lamps . Pontiac grand Am's had multifuction switch problems that caused similiar problems . Check the grounds first , do you know what a body ground is .

No longer hear "clicking" sound from my turn signals and "hazard" lights (exterior lights and interior dashboard lights are working properly).


There is flasher unit generally under the dash board that makes the turn signals and hazzard lamps work. You probably need to replace that, it looks like a small box couple of inches long.

Your wire to the right brake light is making contact with the blinker. Usually in a GM the wires will rub under the box and short out there. Check the plug-ins on the rear of the frame for corrosion first, that could be the problem. If everything is good there then you will have to unwrap the harness to the right side of the truck and start looking for bare spots or cracks in the insulation. Just tape them up and you'll beokay. Hope this helps.

Turn signals blinking fast and stop when brakes applied


likely not, but change /check anyhow....If problem persists, likely you will need to change the module that controls directionals (usually under dash to the right of steering column)

Right signal and brake light


Looks like the problem is in the turn signal switch. This is a common problem. When the turn signal switch goes bad it will cause problems as mentioned above by you. Replace the turn signal mechanism.
