Brake lights won't shut off

Hello-

i drive a manual GXE and the left brake lights won't go off -- it's been raining and i assume it's a wiring problem. already the battery's drained to the point where it won't start. is there a way to disconnect the brake lights so i can get it jumped and drive to a mechanic? thanks.

Here is your problem. One of the sockets inside the tail light assy. melted and shorted the circuit. Its like a plate that clicks into the tail light inside the trunk. Remove the plate, by unsnapping it out of the tail light and check the bulbs, by removing them out of the socket. You may find that one bulb melted at bottom and completed the circuit. Nothing more then melted connections. You can buy the whole plate at dealer.

Why wam is my car starting sometimes and runs great .. but when i pull the emergency brake release it shuts off


I'm assuming there is a sensor attached to the emergency brake pedal. Try driving the car with those sensor wires shorted together.

2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out


Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

1999 toyota battery keeps going down with new alternater this makes 2 alternaters and batteries


The most likely cause if you have changed batteries and replaced the alternator is that you have something that is an electrical drw when the car is shut off.

I assume the battery goes down while the car is sitting?

If it goes down when you are driving, it is likely a different problem.

If you don't have a multimeter to check for current draw when everything is shut off, an easy test to remove the negative battery cable and let it set the time it takes to discharge.

Then hook it back up and see if you have a full battery. If it doesn't go down with the batteryt cable disconnected, you either have a short somewhere or there is something left on (like a glove compartment or trunk light) that is draining the battery.

I assume you checked for the obvious things like brake lights staying on when the car is shut off (brake light switch problem).

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

I have a 1995 Nissan Altima GXE that has an issue with the back lights. Only 2 of the bulbs on the left side work, none on the right. The 2 on the left go on when I turn on the running lights. ...


there's also a unit called the electronic flash unit / module that controls your signal lights and it can affect your brake lights... this unit is not tied into your hazards so one will work without the other.. unfortunately, I don not know where this particular unit would be on your car...
