  1. Update on this problem. After trying pretty much everything I could imagine with absolutetly no success, I resorted to changing the light switch but this did not resolve the problem. I decided I would try another new brakelight switch from the dealer and the problem was corrected. I disassembled the brake switch which was purchased new from the dealer and found a defect in it. Very frustrating but glad I got the brake lights working.
  2. Hi Bill, Thanks for the very detailed explanation. All makes sense to me and I guess I could test with a volt meter to see if I am getting any voltage at the brake light connector when I apply the brakes with the key off. Any suggestions on how I may check this and how I may try to isolate a bad ground. The car is in very good shape, the battery is new (1 year), the terminals are all very clean. I pulled the tail lights and checked all the connectors and they too seemed to be in excellent condition with no signs of any corrossion. I'm not sure about the DLR question, but the more I think
  3. Thanks RFM. I see what you mean now about the BROWN switch. Red Switch is for the clutch. I'm going to swap it out as I think it has to be a faulty switch. Tried replacing the brake switch but this did not fix the problem. I've checked the ground and it's good. All bulbs are good with no signs of any corrossion at the connectors. Next I' guess I'll start having to look at relays to see if they somehow control the brake lights. I believe S6/7 is the DLR relay. I've got a list of the relays from the dealer but they don't give much detail on what they control. Some simply say RELAY. App

  5. Is that a joke or is there a newer version coloerd brake switch? Any chance you would have a part number and I think I'll try ordering from Sunset..
  6. Loren / Orient - This is an intresting little problem, annoying as well. No new switch has been installed and no work done on the car at all. It just started doing this recently. I have had intermitten issues with my lights and tail lights and I have to think it is somehow related. Sometimes when I turn the car off but keep the key in the ignition the drivers headlight and tail light will remain on, however the passenger side headlight and tail light will not be on. When the car is started however they both turn on. I'm not entirely sure if this is normal or not, but again it's intermitt

  8. Yes this is factory installed DRL's as this is an original Canadian Car.
  9. No, the brake lights do not come on if the ignition is off. I'll check all the bulbs and ground wires and see if I can find anything.
  10. I have a 1999 996 C2 Coupe (CANADA) Car with Daytime Running lights. When I put the key in the ignition and turn to accessory or start the car, all my brake lights turn on. Both drivers, passenger side and brake light in wing turn on. When I apply the brakes the lights then go out. Essentially they are opreating backwards!?? All my turn signal light, headlights etc seem to be working properly. I've checked all my fuses and everything seems good. I had a quick look at the switch on the brake pedal and all the connections seem to be good. I'm hoping someone has encountered this problem in
