Toyota Corolla The parking lights and tail lights wont turn. Did smell a burning smell. Change brake light switch 2 months ago

Check the fuse for the lights- I'll bet it's blown. If it is, it may be because of a short in the wires or something. If you changed the light switch, whoever did it might have messed the wiring up a little bit and they just need to be taped better or something. You can replace the fuse and see what happens next.

When car is in PARK mode, you can start the motor, but can't get it off PARK - this is because brake lights are dead. Replaced the fuse, and all is OK till I kill the engine, after braking. Again the same...

Possibly the brake switch itself. Many cars come equipt with a safety feature that won't allow shifting from park unless foot is on the brake. If you have a bad brake switch, this could prevent you from shifting from park as well as giving the impression that the brake lights are bad. hope this answers your question. All the best.

Radio, Brake Light, Interior lights, And Wont Shift Out Of Park.

This problem sounds like you dislodged the switch on the brake pedal lever. You need the signal to unlock the vehicle from Park. You will probably find that the Brake lights do not work when you press the brake pedal.

Now if the switch is good, you probably broke the fuse feeding power to the switch. You can get a wiring diagram online by running a Websearch or going to and registering your car. This site has a HELP section at the bottom of the page and you would need to toggle between free and pay info.

Brake lights not working

Not even the third eye? then the fuse is blown or all the bulbs are out or the brake light switch on the break pedal is bad wire off or broken( it breaks right off the plug then crosses then blows the fuse as the loose broken wire hits the brake pedel arm. Test the break pedal switch first if the third eye doesesnt work either. no power with a test light the fuse is blown or the wire broke ( the wire goes straight to the switch from the fuse and doesnt go anywhere elese. the other wire if hot should light the lights. Most of these wont come out of park without this working as the wire also turns on the park release but some Fords the park release sticks released and Ford made em that way as they didnt like the brake to get out of park law. If the brake lights dont work maybe you ought not be able to get out of park anyway till its fixed. the switch is hot on both wires with the switch pused down and the lights dont still work go after the third eye first if the bulbs are bad change em before you do the rest of the work. on cars with yellow turn signals the brake lights all work on the same wire but red only use three wires, but you didnt say the turn signales didnt work if they work and they are red you r on the way to the turn signal switch as the brake switch powers the turn switch with power then it splites it fot the two lights and adifferent switch circuit for the front hooks them all together for hazard. yellow turns in the back or even separt bulbs can mean blown bulbs ther too its old enought for all the bulbs to fail and the runs still work.

could be a faulty brake fluid level switch ,or parking brake switch, both of the switches supply grond for the light so unplug one at a time to see if light goes out. the brake fliud one is plugged into the master cylinder reservoir the parking brake switch is on top of the p.b. pedal assembly one more option is the brake safety switch, the block under the master with one wire sticking out of it same test pull the wire to see if light goes out

No Brake Lights, unable to switch from park to drive

It is not the multifunction switch. The power feed goes thru the brake switch before the multi function. You have no power the the brake switch because your shift interlock is not allowing you to shift it. I'll look up the wiring diagram and repost with a solution.

1995 Buick Park Ave. Brake light remains ON and chimes on driving

The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!
