I had the same problem with my nissan quest 1996, the problem on mine is caused by a broken plastic cushion on brake pedal, there are two switch sensors under brake pedal, they can be easily seen if you poke your head underneath the front driver seat. I temporarily put a good size screw and nut as a cushion, will get a new one to replace this, nissan put a plastic one instead of metal one for less wear on break sensor switch (I think). Hope this will be help for you.

2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on


If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

Break lights stay on when car if off


I had this same problem. I turned off my car and the brake lights stayed on. I looked under the dash and found that the brake pedal, when not pressed, barely touched the brake light switch, which controls whether the brake lights are on or off. Initially though I just wedge a thin piece of adhesive foam between the pedal and switch, which worked fine for several months until I found the time to properly fix it. My brake light switch was adjustable so i eventually adjusted the nuts on each side of the brake switch holding it to the pedal bracket so that the brake pedal pushed in the white brake light switch when released. Hope this helps!

We have an Audi TT and the brake lights stay on after you turn the car off. Also noted that a passing car informed us that the brake lights stay on while driving as well. Could this possible be a switch...


If all the brake lights stay on then the brake light switch is the first thing to check. It cod also be dagger wiring to the switch or it may just be loose and/or out of place.

Brakes lights don't shut off


hi this could be the switch under the dash stuck in, locate the top of the brake peddle, on the top of it ( under the dash ) there should be a switch with 2 wires, remove the switch and test the plunger or the micro switch ( depends on what modle you have) normally its just a bit dirty, but sometimes its just u/s and needs replacing if its just dirty, a squirt of wd40 or a verry lght oil will normally free it...hope this helps

Brake light stays on just happened 143000 miles


Check your brake switch as it could be faulty hence causing a close circuit which in turn causes the brake light to stay on.It is normally located at the top of the brake pedal.Hope this helps.

Tail light stays on (brake)


If brake lights remain on then inspect brake light switch. Brake light switch is located on top of brake pedal arm bracket. It is either out of adjustment or faulty.

Brake Lights Stay On When Car Is Off


Is it the brake light or the tail light? Does it go out when you pull back on the brake pedal?
