There may be a short in the relay to your tail lights. When you hit your brakeklights a certain amount of power is pushed out by your relay or brakelight switch to illuminate. If Your lights are on and it is on all the time, there is a problem with the voltage dispursal. This could be a short, brakelight switch or relay. Try replacing relay 1st, then brakelight switch then you will have to take it to auto electrican to see if he can find short.

PS, Do both brakelights work? if not change bulb, that could be voltage issue also.

On My 1998 Toyota Camy when the car is on my brakes lights wont go off but if the car its off the brake light work fine why??


These Toyotas had daytime running lights. The headlights and the taillights turn on when you start the car. If you press the brake pedal, the rear lights (and the brake light in the rear window) should come on brighter.

I have never heard of the brake light staying on (The brighter filament in the two-filament bulb). Hope this helps.

Rear light and brakelight don't work when headlights are turned on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee


My first guess would be a ground problem.
The headlights and tail lights are controlled by the same headlight switch, but the brake lights are on a totally different circuit.
You may have to get a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams needed to troubleshoot the circuits if the ground connections are ok.
The lights involve the body computer and other components.

When I turn on the headlights, the brakelights won't work including the turn signals. when the headlights are off, the brakelights and turnsignals work. what could the problem be?


My first thought would be a bad ground connection in the harness for the rear lights.
You might want to take a test light and check the contacts in one of the sockets.

I have a 1984 Honda Prelude the brake lights are on all the time


there is a brake light switch under the brake pedal. When this switch goes bad the brakelights will stay on. It isn't very expensive and if you are any good at tinkering with things you can probably change it yurself. Though it can be a little aggravating. Any parts store would have it.

Camry CE 2001: Changed the brake light in the


hi the rear high level brake warning light in rear screen ? works with the other two brake lights at same time when you press brake pedal with ignition on ? so may i suggest you check the other brake lights are working ? if not ? check these bulbs? reason being that from the symptoms you describe that high level light is staying on ? it would suggest that the brake light switch at the pedal is not operating ie not putting brake lights off when pedal is off and would suspect the brake lights have been on for some time and burned bulbs out due to the brakelight element in bulbs are high wattage if you check on what i have suggested? and is the case ? come back and will advise you how to adjust brake switch easy diy hope this helps? best wishes from the uk

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on


Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...

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

Volvo 850 - Headlights/Brakelights


Hi Metzgerism!

No tools are needed to do such replacements, as both head- and brake-lights are accessible by simply removing panels/caps that cover them. For the headights there are caps that can be twisted and removed, while for the brakelights you need to carefully pry open a panel on the rear post.

Good luck!

Brake light bulb was changed, now brake light is on


Most likely the incorrect bulb was installed or a faulty bulb, causing an electrical cross over. Replace the bulb, and check socket.
