hz brake - park lights

I bought a hz kingswood the other day 253 three on the tree........nice clean old car, but have found that one you hit the brakes, that the front park lights and dash lights come on and off as the brakes are applied? Has somebody wired this up or what should I look for to stop it happening?

Sounds nice...
Sounds like a crook earth. Check all your globes are seated right, and no rusty connections...

Could be as simple as an earth problem. Check all connectors.Remove the bulb holders and bulbs on each light and clean them with sandpaper, scotch pad etc. and clean where they clip into the holder as well. Start with the stop lights. Also check the earth from the battery to the radiator support by unscrewing it and scratch or sand the screw area to give it a good earth to the panel.

I forgot to mention that the lights all work correctly otherwise. When you turn the lights on park and full on, they work fine. The dash comes on correctly when switched on. Its just when you sit there ignition off and touch the brakes the front park and dash will come on? Will still check the earths

I'd start by checking the Earths to the Stop/Tail Lights.

It sounds as though the Brake Circuit is bleeding into the Parkers which are bleeding into the Dash Illumination.

Might also have a Brake Light Bulb that has the Filament lying across Brake and Tail Light Filaments.
