When you depress the brake pedal, the brake pedal will move away from the brake light switch and cause a close circuit and the brake lamps light up. There is a rubber bunk on the pedal which pushes against the brake light switch to shut it off when you release the brake pedal. Most likely this rubber bunk has either fallen off or disintegrated leaving a hole in the brake pedal so there is nothing to push against the switch to shut it off. Look up the brake pedal until you see the brake light switch, then depress the brake pedal to see if the rubber bunk is still there. It is easy to replace. Or you can use some double sided adhesive tape and a coin and stick the coin over the hole in the brake pedal.

Why do the brake lights stay on?


Check that switch which should be depressed by the brake pedal when it is up is adjusted properly and has not failed. This switch turns brake lights on EXCEPT when depressed by brake pedal.

What is the engine size of a 1999 nissan sentra. Also, what is the issue when the brake light stays on. Thanks.

if you are talking about the brake light on the drivers dashboard, it is because the brake fluid reservoir on the master brake cylindar is low. You need to add DOT-3 brake fluid to it.
if you are talking about the tail lights, it could be that the brake pedal is not returning to rest. Pull the brake pedal back towards you when you are sitting in the drivers seat. Light still on, suspect the brake pedal switch. It is right there under the dash. Just look up the brake pedal

Brake light stays on


the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

Hey, i checked out the "PLATE" theory, i couldnt find anything in the nissan Database (sorry), if the parking lights work on the car, but not the BRAKE lights, it could be caused by the brake switch, Its located under the brake pedal, its a simple concept... when you hit the brake, the pedal hits a button to trigger the brake lights, its fairly common for these to go out, however, this wouldnt cause the dash lights to not work, you might try looking for a short in your wiring, Best of luck!
