1997 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 95866 miles
I noticed the tail lights not working when the head lights were on (neither were the instrument cluster lights). But when I pressed the brake pedal the tail lights and high mounted stop light (and cluster lights) illuminated. I replaced the fuse and the lights worked for 10 minutes then blew again. I noticed the HMSL bulb was discolored so I replaced it.
Now when I turn on the head lights the high mounted stop light stays on as if the brakes are being applied. Additionally, when I press the brake pedal the tail lights do not get any brighter.
When I do not have the head lights on, the system works fine, no "extra" lights are illuminated, and when I press the brake pedal the tail/hmsl lights illuminate as expected.
I have checked the rechecked the fuses. Just perplexed at the moment.
have the same problem?
