I've gone through about 100 threads on this problem since yesterday. I'm not exactly sure when it started. I've checked fuses, wiring in the hatch for bare wires, all the wires under the side panels in the hatch area. When the key is on for the radio the fuses show they have power, but when I turn on the ignition and put the car in reverse ( auto ) the fuses show no power. The panel shows me two fuses for backup lights. I noticed it when I had to move the car back and forth that the brake lights were staying on in reverse only. The drivers side stayed solid and the passenger side would flicker, the top light stayed on also. Putting it in drive, neutral or park they would go off. It stopped doing that after awhile without me really doing anything except jiggle the wires here and there. I ordered a new reverse switch to see if thats the problem. My main concern is why the brake lights were going on by themselves. I went from park to reverse without using the brake pedal. I know there are alot of threads about this between FF and FJ but I can't narrow it down specifically. Besides the switch is there a relay I should try ? I stumped.
