Braking is lighting up front parking light?!
Good afternoon fellow Z'ers. I am hoping someone can help me out. When I brake, my front passenger amber lens (parking light) is illuminating. There is no rhyme or reason to this. We have installed front and rear halos but did not come into any contact with the brakes lines or wires. My halos are not set to activate in ANY way in correspondance with braking. This is really mind boggling. I have tried with the limited knowledge I have, to trace the lines and make sure they are still intact with no contact with other lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Attatched are some pics of the wiring and halos.

Is it just one of the front parking lights or both . I have seen a similar problem like this but not on a Dodge . It turns out that one of the elements in the brake light bulbs had broken and was touching the element for the parking light which was making it feedback through the system . The easieast thing to try Paris is take the taillights down and pull the brake light bulbs out and see if the problem goes away .

It's just the passenger one. I need to take the TAIL LIGHTS down?
Ok, we have rainy weather today, I will try it tomorrow. Thank you for your advice, Tom. I appreciate it.

Good luck . Hopefully it's something that simple .

My fear is Dodge will/can say it is relative to the Halos, but we didn't come into ANY contact with the braking components. And my Dodge dealership is really good to me. This is also Scott's 3rd halo job. We aren't rookies to this. Really embarrassing. I go to brake and my flippin' light comes on!

Check your r/r taillight first Paris .

If it makes you feel any better my HIDs still flicker after I turn them on so it looks like I am flashing people!

Thank you again so much Stacy and Tom! I will definitely keep you updated!
