Sounds like you had a short circuit in your tail light/ brake light. When you depress the brake pedal, the short circuit loaded down your electrical system.

if you are saying that the dash lights go dim and bright while driving it could be a loose connection of the wiring harness behind the speedo nacal.

Taillight and blinkers don't turn on but brake light and blinkers work


Hi Rcarp125, sounds like you have a rear fender tail light wiring harness issue. Check that harness connection for corroded, broken or loose connector pins, repair as necessary using a dab of dielectric grease.

Good luck

Sounds like someone put the bulbs back in the wrong holes in the taillight. Or two wires are shorting together. Either way , I think if you remove the taillights , you will find the problem easily.

Taillights won't go off.


Is it the tail lights or the brake lights? If its the brake lights then there is a switch down by your brake peddle that the lever pushes up against to keep your brakes off when there not being applied. If that switch goes out or is out of adjustment the the brake lights will stay on. Hope that helps

Check your wiring to your emergency brake. If the wires are shorted, it may turn your lights off.

I have a99 Express 12 pass. van i get backfire and lack of pickup until i get to about 40mph sometimes and then others times it just runs fine.


2002 Chevy Express Van>>>>with headlights off--the rear left taillight works, but no right. When the brakes are stepped on, both taillights don't work. Also, the little lights under the back doors are out. Also, some lights are dim>>rear only.
