So after a doing a little search, i couldn't kind my answer, but i did find out that many others have experienced these lights coming on. The search has revealed that these lights all coming on in sequence could mean a number of different things. I read from things as simple to low brake fluid to the whole master cylinder needing to be replaced. But upon reading i found my rig was doing a couple things different than others have posted with the same lights.
First, my rig will not come out of park. I have to press the shift bypass button, and to get my rig out of park so i can get on my way. It is at this point (the second i put it in drive) where the lights come on. Now this has happened to me a total of three times. The first time was a few months ago. Came on while driving, stopped at Starbucks and a business meeting. After the meeting,hopped in the truck, lights were on, but as soon as i hit the brakes, they turned off. I could shift into drive no problem. Problem never came back until yesterday.
Stopped to get gas, then it happed all over again. Did the same thing to get on my way. About 10 minutes into my drive, the lights turned off by themselves. Though i think i hit the brakes when they turned off. That's another thing. When this happens, i don't have brake lights.
So this morning i took the rig to a friend of mine with an OBD2 scanner so i can at least see if its holding codes. Just my luck, no codes have been stored.
After piecing all the clues toeghter..
-no brake lamps..
- Can't shift out of park
-Dash lights only seem to turn at the same time i tap the brakes
I'm thinking that i might just be my brake lamp switch. But it sucks cause unless it acts up, i can't test for a bad switch. Could it be something else? I sure hope not.
So i guess the purpose of this thread is to see if anyone else have experienced similar symptoms. I'm going to carry my volt meter around with me for a while in the event it does act up again i can do a quick test. Any help would be appreciated.
