Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?

There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

Reverse light on when brake is applied

Manny, I am confused too. When you apply brake, brake light should light up. There is no connection with reverse lights which have no color. Have you checked the manual? If you can't find solution, you may have to show it to a good mechanic because operating a vehicle this way could give wrong signals to traffic behind.

Hi Saddleback,

The brake lights on the trailer has been fitted with new tecknology. As soon as you apply the brakes the trailer brake lights will flash. This is let the cars behind you know that you will stop and they must keep their distance.

Yes it is true. and the light is there as a reminder so when you jump in the car you do not drive away with the park brake on. The park light switch needs to be replaced.Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

Brack light comes on and stays on i have unplugged the module and it stays off a short time and comes back on.the otheer day the brake light started blinking

In addition to indicating when your parking brake is applied, the brake light is also a fault warning. There is probably someting wrong with your brakes, or at least your car thinks something is wrong. You should inspect the brake system, especially looking for any fluid leaking either at the wheels or in front of the driver seat under the car. Also check the brake fluid reservoir. Let us know what you find out.

Brake light stays on

The brake light usually comes on when the parking brake is applied. If the brake light is still on after the parking brake is released, then there is something wrong with your brake system. Check your brake hoses, brake lines, and master cylinder for leaks of brake fluid. If you cant find anything, see a mechanic for help.

Engine light on, when I apply the brake lights go dim and act as if the car wants to cut off. also pulls funny. I need to know what could be wrong. the mechanic says it could be a computer problem.

Did your mechanic tell you what code triggered the check engine light on,It sounds like your alternator is not charging enough,Then you apply the brake lights which take more power away from the engine.
