Hi,
Looks like your brake light harness was repaired and reconnected it in the wrong way.
Check the rear brake light and park light harness. Electrician can check and restore the harness.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

1997 Nissan Maxima brake and battery lights on


John, I think I may have already answered this one.Check and clean battery connections and all grounds(loosen and re tighten all ground connections to give good contact), check belt for being loose. Nissan forums say it is a bad alternator.
Check the attached links,

Tail lights not working


Sounds like you may have a short within the brake light switch itself. I'm not familiar with the vehicle but this electric switch will likely be located under the dash on the brake pedal itself.

Battery wont charge, battery/ABS/SRS/BRAKE lights come on while driving and flicker. voltage increases to dash lights/fan speed/headlights periodically.


Get a volt meter, start your car and see how many volts your car is producing while running. Should be around 14 volts. May want to watch the meter for a while since your electric seems to fluctuate. Most voltage regulators are internal of your alternator. If you are getting a lot more or less than 14 volts while running, replace the alternator. If it is not charging, voltage will drop as vehicle runs, until battery is dead.

My problem is dash lights come on when i brake lightly battery light flickers car dies all power out no lights nothing then back to normal


Sounds like a short in the brake light circuit that overloads the alternator.
I'd check / replace the bulbs for brake lights.

I had this happen once...
When you brake...your brake lights come on.
BUT, because the bottom of the bulb or bulbs have shorted, this provides a path for your running lights and dashlights to come on as well and the short tends to overload the alternator causing the flickering battery light.

Because the alternator is taking an overload like that...I'd have it and the battery checked for proper performance.

I'll bet the back bulbs or bulb sockets need attention...

Hope this helps...

1994 Honda Accord Brakelights (all 3)stay on even when car is off


There is a brake light switch located under the dash at the top of the arm that the brake pedal is mounted to. It either needs to be adjusted or is faulty. This switch is what makes your brake lights come on and it will do this whether the car is on or off. Most likely just needs to be adjusted so that the tip of the switch isn't touching the brake arm until you push the pedal. Its very simple to adjust

95 paseo brake lights flickering and staying on


Look at your brake light switch attached to the upper end of your brake pedal. When the brakes are released your switch should be engaged. I would remove it and check it with a meter to make sure its working normally.
