Hi I have a 82 280ZX, today may fuel,door, and brake
lights are on after the car starts. The car runs fine.
The volts are about 11 when the dash lights are on.
The volts are 14 when the dash lights are off. Sometimes the lights would come on but would shut off after I take off. Today the lights are on all the time. Does anyone know what is causing this. Thanks for any help.

Have Your Alternator Checked.

What's happening to your '82 ZX usually happens to mine when an alternator is headed for the elephant's graveyard.

RE: Fuel,door,& brake lights on dash is allway

That is your alternator, it always does the same thing on ZX cars, lights up extra lights in the dash, chances are your voltage gauge is not reading the additional voltage correctly, if you rev it watch to see if your voltage gauge goes into the red.
