    for some reason my stop lights dont seem to be working, the one on the spoiler works fine but the normal tail lights, will only come on when i turn the lights on, though when i step on the brakes they dont light up?
    any help?

    you more than likely have a fuse out. the spoiler runs on a different fuse, at lease it does on a del sol. if no fuses are blown then you prolly have a wire short between the relay for the brake lights and the brake lights.

    sometimes there is this little screw on the brake pedal, like a calibration type thing, that could also make this happen.

    does the spoiler light stay on constantly? or does it work when you hit the pedal? If it works when you hit the pedal then you dont have a problem near the brake pedal. to locate a short in your wires, then you would take a test light. put the clip to a power source, and test your power wires for the brake lights. if the test light, lights up. then you have a short in your harness somewhere. but before you mess with all that great stuff. check for blown fuses and such.

    i dont know..
    doesnt mean there isnt another fucking solution, leave it be until problem solved.
    it wouldnt be locked anyway, a thread doesnt get locked just cuz the problem is solved.. usually.

    i think you just wanted to use the :locked2:

    Since when is not having tail lights/brake lights a minor issue? We have a little word called "safety". If your lights aren't functioning properly, and it could jeopardize your safety or someone else's, then it's not a minor issue. I'll be damned if I am going to wreck my car and injure my family because I don't see you or didn't realize you were stopping/slowing.
