Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

Have a 92 olds eighty eight royale and the brake lights only work some of time. I checked the bulbs and the fuses and both are good and also checked the wiring in the trunk of vehicle at light location. Was wondering where else I might look for a loose wire connection or something that would cause this problem. Also the tail lights do work when headlights are on so I'm guessing its a wiring issue with the brake system just don't know where to check for connections. Thank you for any help you ca

High up on the brake pedal is the brake light switch. When you press the pedal, a button moves on the switch, turning the switch on . Check if it operates smoothly.

When headlights are on there is a light in the back right tail but you apply the brakes and there is no brake light just a partial yellow colored light and the turn signal blinks very very slow.

1997 toyota t100? My tail lights do not work but my brake lights do work. When I would turn left blinker is solid and stuck on. Lost dash lights and when lights are off and using directional the clock flashes. I smelled burning and checked and found the trailer plug was burning right through and was hot. I cut the plug out and capped the wires. Do you think that's all I need to do. Also whenever I would replace fuse it would blow immediately. I can't get a new fuse till after work.


Unless the damage extends further into the wiring harness, you probably found the cause of the problem. I'm not sure everything will work right when you put the fuse in. Good luck. ... 1994 Toyota T100

When you step on the brakes it does make them brighter but the dash lights come on when the headlights aren't on.

When the headlights are on the instrument panel gauge lights up saying the rear brake light on the back window is on.
