Why do my tails lights stay on after vehicle is turned off?

Asked by Dec 06, 2013 at 01:39 AM about the 2005 Dodge Caravan Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan which is tail lights stay on after I turn my vehicle off. I have no idea why this is happening or what the problem could be. Also, my ABS (Anti-lock Breaking System) stays on when I'm driving my van. I don't know anything about that also. If anyone knows how to fix these two problems, you can send me an Email to Power_Writer@yahoo.com

Same trouble, after the second brake light switch I seen the upper middle brake light was out (the one top of back hatch) Replaced and all was good. This after hours of digging reading schematics checking internet, Also the four way flasher worked but if I shut it off when lights were flashing on they would stay on, shut them off when lights flashed off they would stay off. .when brake lights stayed on after hitting the brakes pulling out the brake light fuse did nothing, but pulling the hazard fuse shut them off. Go figure Hope this helps any one with the same trouble.
