When I got it back the brake light didn't work and the dealership wanted an additional $700 or so to fix it. Then the column key control wouldn't let me drive over 1 mile per hour a few years later and the dealership charged me $700 but still didn't fix the brake light, they said that would be an additional $700.00 So how can i fix this without getting

Check it out. Under the passenger floor panel you will find two relays above the computer box. Pull them. Check them. One of these is to the steering lock bypass which is a $19.70 part at Napa. I went through this for a week and a half and refused to get taken by the dealer for 1400.00 dollars and GM's bull s*-! Recall. Check it and you will be driving more than 1.5 MPH.

I have a '03 Sonata. One of the brake lights went out when it was new. I had the dealership fix it since it was still under warranty. Since then, I have replace it 4 or 5 times. First other problem was the cruise did not work when my lights were on. Next, the dash light started coming on when I hit the brakes. Then, the parking lights would come on when I hit the brakes. After that, the cd player started turning on and off by itself. All of this has been going on for 3-4 years. I had sear

Brakes issues even after I fixed it at the Toyota dealership.

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500. The dome light doesn't come on when I open the doors. I replaced a missing door jam switch and replaced the other just for grins...that did not fix the problem. The dome light works if you switch it on manually. Additionally, the brake lights above the cab don't work. I've replaced the bulbs. Could these be on a common fuse and if so, which one? I have searched and can't find the answer. Thanks!

Twice when its gotten very cold all the amber warning lights on my jeep patriot have come on. The speedo does not work and the parking brake light stays on red. The car works fine. I went to the dealer last year and for $100 was told nothing was wrong, they reset the lights. Does anyone know of a way to fix the problem, and secondly is anyone else having the same problem.

Consider properly repairing the hazard light switch via junkyard parts for a cheap price. You invariably have a short that overloads the fuse when you activate the brake lights via pressing on the brakes. \015\012\015\012good luck ... 1995 GMC Jimmy

I have a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer. The tail light does not work een after replacing bulb. I called dealership and the recalled tail light was already fixed. They said that it wasn't a fuse because the brake light and turn signal still work. Does any one have any ideas on what may be the problem?

The tail lights are out on my 2005 Suzuki XL-7. I found the main fuse box and none of the fuses appear to be burned out. The front lights are all working except small round one on driver's side. I just had it inspected in July and the license plate light was out. They fixed it by replacing a fuse. I do have brake lights and turn signal lights, but the other lights are all burned out. Do you know if there is another fuse box somewhere? I tried taking off the front panel under the steering column

Brake lights not turning on when brake is engaged. Had it taken to dealership and they said it was the brake light switch. Wondering if this could be the same problem again or if it's something else.

Engine light won't go off. My brake light goes on and off. Any suggestions why this is happening? I already took it to the dealership mechanics and the came up with a log with a lot of codes.

My brake lights wont go off!!! help to fix them have already tried to change brake lite switch. didnt work


If you changed the switch at the pedal, then the cable must be shorted somewhere along the way, activating the brake lights all the time. To test for this condition, try moving the shifter lever from Park to drive, or reverse, WITHOUT TOUCHING THE BR ... 1998 Honda Accord

I have a 1992 Toyota DLX ExtraCab Pickup with a column-mounted automatic shift. The truck has sat for a couple of months without being driven. Now, when I attempt to drive it, the engine starts just fine, but I can't move the shifter out of Park. This should release when I depress the brake pedal as it has done for years. The brake lights work just fine, so the switch appears to be doing its job. All fuses check out -removed them with new ones just to be sure. Now I'm stumped. I would fi

Random stalling I've been having the same problem with random staling with no warning at all over the past 3 years. Each time I complained to the dealership they told me nothing was wrong. It only ever happened when the car was completely stopped until TODAY. Needless to say, I told them if they don't find the problem & fix it I will go ballistic on them. Ever since I got the car we've had small electrical problems, dash board lights, heated seats not working, cruise control randomly not working
