Is it your tail lights or Brake lights? My 88 Couger had a brake switch that went bad and the Brake Lights stayed on.

2009 kia spectra thedash lights stay on.rear tail lights and dash lights what would cause this


If you mean the illumination lights on the dashboard stay on as well as the tail lights even when the light switch on the turn signal stalk is turned off then it may be the turn signal/light switch. you can unplug this switch and if the lights turn off this is your most likely cause. If not you will need to get a wiring diagram to further diagnose the problem.

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.

2005 ford escape rear tail lights stay on


Sounds like the brake lights are staying on, which is probably a faulty brake light switch on the pedal.

On my 1991 Nissan pickup, the tail lights stay on even with ignition and light switch turned off. It's drained the battery so my only solution is to remove the bulbs. Any suggestions ?


Are you sure it is the tail lights, or could it be the brake lights? If it is the tail lights, the light switch should be replaced. If it is the brake lights, there is a switch operated by the brake pedal whitch could be stuck or otherwise inoperative and should be replaced.

Right rear tail light is staying lit with all switches disconnected...original problem was tail lights on all the time.Switched out turn signal switch,ignition switch and brake switch


Have you got the correct bulbs in place in each socket. I know it sounds obvious but sometimes a double filament bulb can back feed other bulbs.

Tail Lights & Brake Lights stay on even when car is turn off


the plastic round stopper most probably broke that is were the stoplight switch sits when not depressed easy fix find a washer small enough to block the hole were the original plastic stopper was making sure the washer aligns to the brake light switch and secure washer w/ zipties hope this helps.

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off


hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

Tail lights


There is a switch on top of the steering column that switches the parking light facility on and off. Check that this switch is not in the on position . If it is on then your side lights will stay on even if you turn the lights off.
