Could be a stereo wiring problem. The illumination wire is obviously tied to battery voltage somewhere.

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.

Hummer H3. Wont shift out of park, key is stuck in ignition, will not turn on accessories or crank, break lights stay on. Removed interior carpet to apply herculiner. Any ideas as to what the problem


Many cars, I presume the Hummer also will not let you shift out of Park unless the Brake pedal is depressed. Most do this by an electronic interlock with the brake light switch. Yours is broke. Either the brake light switch has moved out of position or is defective, or your brake pedal is not retracting to the full off position.

The headlight stay on all the time, either daytime running lights or all lights. The car has a sensor bulb in the dash. If you pull the headlight switch on and then push off, they still stay on. Trying...


This sounds like how the headlights on this vehicle are designed to operate. They can be manually turned on if in DRL mode. Setting the park brake before turning the ignition on should keep them from lighting, otherwise they are always on. The light sensor switches between lowbeam and daytime running light modes.

2005 Dodge Caravan . Brake lights stay on !


Try pulling back on the brake pedal if lights go off then either switch adjustment or the brake booster is allowing the pedal to drop down if it's running (vacuum) or brake pedal mechanism is binding.

Installed new led taillight and now there is no brake light/blowi


I fixed it. The LED light needs a "load equalizer" to operate properly. Instructions said nothing of needing one. I combed the internet and found the answer. I responded to FixYa by e-mail "REPLY" and informed of the fix. Thanks for your help...I'll remember your site for future needs.

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
