Default Rear Lights out of wack

I have an issue with my rear lights on my 93 Toyota SR5 extended cab
4x4. If anyone could direct me on the right path. That would be great.

1.When using my directional signals & applying the break at the same
time, the signals flash fast & alternate left & right and are dim.

2.When using the cruise & the directional signal at the same time. The
cruise will shut off.

3.After turning off the truck & opening the drivers door while the key
is still in the ignition. There is a steady tone sound. As if I have
left my lights on.

4.When appling the break you will see the signal indicator lights on
the dash light up.

If any one has a solution. Please email me at jvz5000@aol.com

Thanks

I don't do email, but the problem is 1 of 2.
Pull the bulbs out the rear and see if they are in good condition, if
not replace them.
If the problem continues you have a ground missing from one or both
sockets.

My bet is a bad bulb.

I have looked at all the bulbs, but will check again. I also
disconnected the negitive battery & run a cable from the negitive
terminal & checked all the components 1 at a time to see if the ground
came off, but everything checked out ok. I will check all grounds
again.

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like it's time to start checking for shorts.

Hi There,
I am pretty sure its a bad earth connection.
Like dirty to chassis ( high resistance ) and can not carry the current.

You sometimes see this on caravans.
They don't ( or did not in my time ) use an earth return wire.
They used the metal body as the earth return.

Check also the Battery ground strap to the chassis.
Also check the FUSE HOLDERS for loose fuse or dirty connections.
But I think the problem is more local to the rear lights.

Enjoy.

Johnny UK.
