One of your rear bulbs is a single filament bulb when it should be a double fillament stop/tail bulb.

When I turn on my headlights my brake lights stay on all the time without applying the break pedal. They work fine when the headlights are not on.


Brake pedal you mean. Electrical short somewhere. Somehow power is flowing from the headlight circuit to the brake light circuit. Pull the fuse for the brake lights to see if they stay off, this may help you to isolate the problem. You have to trace the wiring (and test voltages along the way) with the help of the wiring diagram. It's possible corrosion somewhere is also the problem.

When i turn on da car do the brake light in the window stay on


They may stay on if your headlights stay on. Try turning your headlights off and see if the break light goes off.

It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.

On my 98 Catera the brake lights work during the day but when the headlights come on my brake lights stay on ? Also when the headlights are on my cruise control will not work ??? Any help ????????


Your cruise will not work if the brake lights are on just like the cruise disengages when you hit the brakes.As far as the brake lights with the headlights,sounds like there is something crossed.If you hold your breaklights on with your headlights off is there a glow of the headlights or your running lights.If your rear bulbs are the round push in and turn type make sure they are installes correctly.You may have one where the contact on the bottom of the bulb is causing a jump of power from your running/parking light over to the brake light side.Well hope this helps and good luck.

My brakes lights stay on when my headlights are on, but the brake lights work fine when my headlights are off. Do you know what may be the problem?


This problem likely is the filaments touching in one of the dual filament bulbs used for the brake lights. Another sign of this would be the dash illumination lights coming on when the headlights are off and the brake pedal is pressed. The solution is to replace the defective bulb.

Brake lights stay on when my head lights are turned on? 1998 vwgl


Check the tail light bulbs, One may be shorted & feeding voltage to brake lights. Check sockets & wiring. Yes, the brake light switch is above the foot brake.

Headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works


I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
