Electrical problem - Tail lights
#1303538 - 08/20/06 04:42 PM

Had a small problem last night when I got home. My rear lights stayed on when took the keys out of the car. I'm guessing at some point during the drive something must have vibrated loose. They are full on (tail + brake) and stay on even with the car all locked up. Had to get in the boot and unplug them (3rd light too) so I could go to bed.
When I put the hazards on they flash which adds to the confusion I think.
Anyway, I'm hoping its gone on its own when i plug them back in but if anyone has suggestions I'm happy to hear them.

UPDATE:
Letting it sit didn't help. Anyone got any tips on where to look?

Brake light switch under the brake pedal.

I can almost guarantee it's hanging from the brake pedal. Click it back into place and you should be all set.
