    Default Flashing brake light AND no DRL

    So I took the stock tape player out, put in a stock cd player, took out cd player because none of the back lights work, put stock tape player back in.

    Now the brake light (dash) blinks constantly and the DRL's don't work. I googled a bit and found to check the ign fuse and DRL fuse in the engine bay and both were good. I also swapped the horn relay with the DRL relay and the horn still works. I check all the fuses in the engine bay AND the passenger compartment.

    What am I missing?

    AAAANNNNDDDD it was the parking brake being pushed down a smidge. I had pulled the release lever earlier but I had to pull up on the pedal.

    I had the same exact problem! However, my DRL's still worked....Weird thing was that it started while I was driving down the highway. Pulled over, checked all my fuses and popped the brake release and while it didn't even move the pedal, the light went off. Weird things sometimes.
