R34 Tail Lights Always On


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, bit of an odd one - The tail lights in my r34 won't turn off - NOT the brake lights, i've had the rubber stopper problem in the past, the brake lights function perfectly fine. 

I've checked all over the internet and it seems like a really uncommon problem - wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to troubleshoot it -i'm thinking potentially it has something to do with my headlight stalk? But in all my years of owning these cars i've never had this problem.

Would love any ideas on things to try - I cant really drive the car if I have to disconnect the battery every time I park it.

Cheers,

Take multimeter and wiring diagram to car. Start poking around where there shouldn't be power when the switch is off.

Do you have the wiring diagram? If not, get it.


You got a link to one mate? I've just had a look, and even unplugged the headlight switch and they're still on.

Only diagram I could find online seemed to be pointing to a tail lamp relay which I don't believe actually exist lol

Sounds like you might have a short circuit somewhere (short to power) 

i havent had a 34 before but some of my other cars mainly subaru had a seperate switch that activates the parkers (tails) when the car was off.

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
