It sounds like your brake light switch is not shuting off. there is a switch on the steering column usually above the brake pedal that when the brake pedal comes up it has a tab that pushes a button that slides into brake light switch disconnecting the power to the lights. Locate switch and push switch button by finger and have a helper see if light goes off. if does, loosen set screws for switch and adjust so it is closer to the tab for pedal activation. but only adjust as much as needed as to much adjustment will delay the brake light to turn on, as car would slow using little brake without notifying drivers of stopping due to light not activating untill further harder brake apply

I suspect it's your brake lights you're seeing on, meaning you have a bad brake light switch. It's mounted just above pedal under dash.

Its hard to tell, but it sounds like maybe your brake light switch is messing up, try hitting the brakes a few times, or get under the dash and manually manipulate/ unplug the switch, this should let you know if its the switch or a more serious problem. hope this helped.

Relay fuse for park lamps on 2004 Buick Rendevous. Where is it located?


Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LPS fuse in the underhood fuse block, supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM will then energize the park lamp relay coil control circuit. Current flow is now from the park lamp relay to the park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G100 and G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G401 and G402. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G401. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lights are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.

The parking stays on after engine is turned off.what could cause that<


on some cars there is a courtesy light that stays on for a while to iluminate you to your house door etc. this can be changed in the car settings. also if an indicator(trafficator) is switched when the engine is turned off a park light turns on on the side that was switched as a guide light when parking in a dangerous spot as a warning to other traffic. ensure indicators are off when swithcing off engine.

The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LP fuse in the underhood accessory wiring junction block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, battery positive voltage is applied to the park lamp circuit. The parklamp circuit then applies battery positive voltage to the DRL control module and to all the marker, park and tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302 The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left ON.

My 2002 ford ranger running lights and instrument panel dont work


12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.

The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.

What possible cause the parking brake light remains lit after starting the engine?


Parking brake still on or a malfunctioning switch. You sure it's the parking brake light and not the "blown brake line light"?

Park, Tail, Marker Lamps, and License
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, turn on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or the HEAD position, or anytime the headlamps are requested. The RT I/P #1 fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and to the park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay coil control circuit.
Current flows from the park lamp relay switch to both front and rear park lamp fuses and to their respective park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lamps from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lamps are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or until the battery runs dead.

Engine off. Parking brake set. Brake lights remain "on"?


Pull the brake pedal up as far as you can while someone else watches the brake lights. If the brake lights go out the switch has become out of adjustment. It is located under the dash, above the brake pedal. It is cylindrical in shape and works by a plunger. There are two nuts on it, one on either side of the mount. Loosen the nut toward the pedal (locking nut) and slightly adjust the rear adjusting nut. The lights should be activated when the pedal is depressed about 1/4-3/8 inch.

Click on the link.
Did you check fuse circuit for voltage? Use a test light with headlamp switch on to check for voltage. See the park lamp relay, I'm not saying the relay is faulty, but, you might be able to use jumper wire on load side of relay, if lamps work, the problem is on control side of relay, for some reason.
The load side of relay is that line with arrowhead. There could be other issues.
