Hi there and welcome.

2 possibilities spring to mind;

Did you have your other lights on? i.e. sidelights - if so, it may be a short circuit in the rear light cluster/wiring. Especially if the brake lights went out once the main lights were switched off.

Or, failing that possibility - it may be a switch (operated by pressing the brake pedal) which has jammed in the 'on' position.

I would consult an auto electrician if your car is out of warranty.

Hope that helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
