You have a short in the brake system wires. Id start disconnecting everything one at a time until the dimming goes away. Then that component will be your issue. Whether it has failed or the wires going to it are shorted will depend on diagnostics and what it shows.

Hello

With regards to the brake lights, you need to replace your brake switch located under your brake pedal.

With regards to spongy pedal, sounds like air in the line you need to bleed the brakes via the bleed nipple on each caliper and check your brake fluid.

hope this helps.

Thanks

Mine is doing the same thing. I have to turn the key 1/2 way on, put it in neutral and then start it. I have NO break lights. Turns out my break pedal switch, the wires were disconnected from that switch. It's a dealer item they said.. so i'm trying to research it right now. I'll letcha know if it works

you mean you hear air in the cab down by the pedal. If thats the case your power steering assist is leaking. Its the big black unit behind the brake master cylinder. It may set a check engine light at times for lean condition.

What goes wrong with abs brake module in 99 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck


It isn't often we get enough information to make a diagnosis, but I think we can in this case.
You have a break light switch under the dashboard that is plastic, and has a "plunger" button.
When you press the brake pedal, that allows the plunger button to extend, which closes contacts inside the switch, and makes the brake lights come on.
If and when that switch either breaks or gets loose, the plunger will stay extended, and the brake lights will stay on, discharging the battery.
God bless your efforts to see & fix this.

Hi ihave porsche cayenne 2003 does'nt start when you crank its doesn't and its shown press pedal then lights still on then dme lights on, so what is a problem?


Do you hear anything when you try to start it? If not, it's probably a bad battery. Your dome light (and all other accessories) require a tiny amount of power compared to your starter, so, it's possible that your battery has enough power for your dome lights but not enough to start the car. Try jumpstarting the car, if that starts it then you probably need a new battery.

Seems to be having problems with the alternator. Alternator itself can be bad, but also the voltage regulator, which sits inside the PCM (powertrain control module).
Don´t continue using with battery voltage around the 10V, because it will ruin your battery as well. Completely charge the battery with an external battery charger and let the alternator be checked out first.

1999 ford tarus dome light and brakes stay on for long time when i shut off the car draining my battery continuously. I need to know how and where I can find the switch, and how to flip it. Also I am not...


Hi


Check the brake-pedal switch. This small button behind the brake pedal is activated when you press down on the brake pedal and makes the brake light go on. Press the switch by hand to see if it's stuck. If it is, pressing it may force the stuck part.

Find the fuse for the brake light and pull it out. Remember to put it back in before driving again

Find the brake light bulbs and remove them. Remember to put them back in before driving again.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. You will have to reconnect it again to start and drive your car.

For the dome lights this can be a symptom that can be caused by a bad door switch. A bad switch could be sending a door open condition to the computer .Also check the dome light switch first. Make sure the right setting is being used. Normally it has 3 settings (1 - on always, 2 - on when door is open, 3 - off always). If the setting is on 2 and the problem still exists then check and/or replace the door jamb switches. These exist in each door jam and switch the light on and off based on a whether the door is open or closed.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

My 99 Expedition just died while driving. After towing it home it now wont even turn over. I can jump the starter and it engages and I have power to dome light and headlights but when I turn key nothing (...


I has an 86 Mustang that did a similar thing and it turned out that the battery actually shorted out. This happens when one of the plates inside the battery brakes off and then touches another plate. When mine died it was like I turned the iginition off. It wouldn't turn over even with jumper cables.

I'm not that familiar with this model, but it sounds like either a brake light fuse or the brake pedal switch could be the problem.
