I recently noticed on my 1987 Delta 88 that when I have my parking
lights on both the tail lights and the top horizontal light are always
on and that when I put on my brakes they barely get lighter. I got
pulled over yesterday because the cop thought that my brake lights
were stuck on and he couldn't tell when I had my brakes on. When the
parking lights are not on the brake lights work fine, but I'm confused
about the horizontal light above my hood. Is it supposed to be off at
night until I hit my brakes or does the '87 D88 work differently?
Most likely a bad bulb. The tailight bulbs have two filaments, one for
tailights and one for brakes. One of the filament is broken and making
contact with the other filament. Replacing the bad bulb should correct your
