Tail lght issue

Post by boosted97sx on Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:17 pm

Well i drove the car the other day and things were fine...after i got out i noticed that the tail lights were on....so i made sure the lights were off, checked the fuse and it looked good, I had to take the fuse out to get the tail lights to go off.......

Any idea what would cause them to stay on all the time even when the cars not running?

Its the contact point for the brake switch
I was just messing with this earlier .If you look underneath (be upside down )where your brake pedal is ,you will see a switch.there is a black circular piece of plastic on the other side of the switch.Either its ;broken,not there or is smashed in the middle .What i did is jb weld a dime to the plastic piece

also check the switch and the connector to see if its loose or jiggles

to better explain .check out this link http://forums.nicoclub.com/zerothread?id=272469

hope this helps
