Check that the brake fluid level is up, and then check to see if pumping the brake pedal gets rid of this condition (i.e. raising the pedal height).

If this doesn't solve the problem, then check the adjustment of the brake light switch being actuated by the brake pedal armature.

Hope this helps.

Headlights work but not taillights what is the cause and how do i fix it?


First you need to determine if all lights in the back are out or just brakes lights or tail lights. Check fuses, taillights will have their own fuses. Could be a bad dash switch, which would be evident if brake lights work but not taillights.

My 1996 Toyota 4Runner is equipped with a factory tow package; however, I'm unable to locate the plug for trailer taillights.


If you don't have a 'plug' for the trailer taillights, then the trailer renter, like Uhaul, sells bulb adapters that hook into the tail brake and light lamps that can power the trailer taillights.

I remember, I had a 1980 Suburban that didn't have a 'compatible' plug, and that's the way we resolved the problem.

Good luck on this towing.

I turn my car on and then turn the headlights on. The taillights do not come on. When I turn my car off my taillights come on.When I leave my car in the off position then I turn my headlights just to park...


Sounds like your lights switch is coming apart. Recommend you remove the switch and test it with an ohmmeter. To remove the switch, pull the knob straight off, reach behind the dash and push in the 3 tabs (top, left, and right side) holding the switch in, pull the switch back under the dash, and remove the connector. To test, use the pinouts shown on the diagram below and the switch pictured. Basically, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm resistance to pin 7 in the OFF position and no continuity elsewhere. Similarly, in PARK, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 and no continuity elsewhere. In the HEAD position, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 4 and none elsewhere.

If the switch has failed as I suspect, you will find that in the OFF position, pin 2 will have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 rather than pin 7.
Let me know if you have questions.

My tail lights are not working, it keeps blowing my fuse.


1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

Taillights only turn on with the headlights, but don't turn on for braking or signals. I've checked all the fuse and relays and they are fine. Any Suggestions?


Those lights are called running lights. Have you tried new bulbs or test the wires coming into the socket for power.

Some fords have fuses for taillights, check there too.

Dash and running lights does not work, everything


The fuse to the taillights/running lights?
It can't be a grounding problem if both taillights and dash don't work.
If only taillights don't work, it would be suspicious grounding.
