Tail lights stay on while car is off and brake lights do not work,turning signals do work also, it is a 95 geo prizm


Try to refer to the owners manual. If not, go to the fuse box and see if anything is wired wrong. If you don't know, go to the car dealership and they will test the car and give you a report.

Brake lights stay all time without car being on


So they stay on when the car is turned off with no engine running?
I imagine this flattens your battery?
Or do they only stay on once the ignition has been turned to "on" even without the engine running?
Could be the pedal switch sticking in which case you would simply need to look under the dash behind the pedal and try and "jiggle" the switch, though if they only stay on once the ignition is on I would lean towards a bad earth for the globe socket.

First maybe try and disconnect the pedal switch to ensure that its breaking the connection properly and turning your lights on and off.

Depending how handy you are, you could remove the tail light and run an additional earth for the globe socket.

The interior brake light on my console is illuminated.


The brake warning light tells the driver the parking brake is on, or the fluid in the hydraulic system is low.
If the parking brake is not on, and the fluid level is ok, it could be the parking brake switch or the fluid level sensor.

You need to replace the brake light switch, it is located above the brake pedal and is actuated by the brake pedal arm.

I'm having an unusual problem with a 1990 Geo Prizm. When I step on the brake the brake light comes on in the rear. When I turn on the lights the brake light goes out if I'm holding the brake pedal down....


Make sure you have the right bulbs in the right place...Sometimes they will fit, even though they are not right...Your brake light bulb should be a two filiment bulb...If it is one , then there goes your problem...Now if your bulbs are interchangable, go ahead an swap them around, and see what happens...Goodluck....

Tail lights stay on when car is off


Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps
