park,tail,and dash lights don't work 2002 kia spectra
did you check the fuses under the hood
Hand brake was not staying down, and by pushing down on hand brake the "hand brake dash" light would go off and the park/tail lights would come on (great!). There must be a switch that detects that the hand brake is down. I will check why the hand brake does not stay down. Probable because a spring is out of place or something is pressing agaist the hand brake upwards. I think what is happening here is the DRL (Daytime Running Light) module is getting a "hand brake" on signal ( Apparently for Canadian models...lucky us ).
My problem was solved by replacing a worn grommet that kept the rear and tail lights on. Not a fuse or switch. Once new grommet was put in, lights went off. This should be in the driver's manual. I had to replace my battery.
