Hey guys I have a problem. Last night I found that my brake lights stay on constant when I have my headlights or side lights on but when there is no lights on my brake lights work fine.

I've checked the switch under the pedal and it seems to be fine. But I'm at a dead end with what can be causing it!!

Can any 1 help me out on this mind boggling problem :-(

Check your rear/brake bulbs. Sounds like they maybe shorting to complete the circuit. Have you changed one recently?
