Default Help with Lights

When I step on the brake pedal of my 94 xlt the headlights come on very dim. The amber lights come on also. Any ideas?

Wow.. Sounds like you have a short somewhere. Probably some melted wires somewhere.

Took cruise control off fender and found 3 wires that need to be grounded. It starts runs with the lights on brake lights and turn signals all work. Drove around the block no problems.
