4th Gen Brake Lights Activate With Head Lights On

Just wanted to pass some information on...

Recently when I would turn on my headlights it would activate my brake lights. If my lights were off and I applied the brake pedal the dash lights would dim as well.

Located the issue... The drivers side brake light bulb had blown. Inside the bulb the top tungsten filament was making contact with the lower tungsten filament thus creating a short.

Replaced the bulb; problem solved.

The reason for this post is because several posts that I read pointed me to the headlight switch or the plastic piece on the brake pedal switch... I forgot to check the most common item first... Duhhh
