I had the same problem. In my case it was not the brake pedal switch contact which I replaced anyways as it is very inexpensive on Autozone. Your brake pedal makes contact with this switch with a round little plastic piece and when this piece breaks after many years of use, the hole left on the break pedal does not push the contact switch thus your brake lights stay on. Go to a Nissan dealer PARTS and tell them your problem. The solution is less than $2 and even though is a little hard to fix, you will be happy when you are done.

Hint: Push the brake pedal as you are installing this little plastic thingie.

First check to see how much brake fluid you have in the master cylinder. If low.add some and re-check. Also check the e-brake lever. Push the lever down and observe the "brake light" to se if it flickers or goes out. There is a switch at the bottom of the e-brake lever, which will make the brake light come on, when you pull it up. Check it and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: brake lights stay on when car turn off

I had this same issue on my 97 Honda Accord SE, but when I changed the Brake Light Safety Switch, the problem was not solved! Turns out the small blue plastic "pin" that presses on the brake light safety switch when the pedal is not being pressed, was broken off and could not put pressure on the brake light safety switch.. I had to rig it up so that it would work until I could go get myself a new brake pedal and have it put on. ( new pedal needed because that pin and its housing are one peice with the whole brake pedal.)

2002 Astro brake lights stuck on


Chevy has a different circuit for the brake-lights. Strange that the brake-lights don't go out, after the fuse and/or relay is removed. Unplug the brake-light switch. Are the brake-lights out now? The brake-light circuit travels through the turn signal switch. There could be a failure inside the turn signal switch or there could be a short in the circuit, causing the brake-lights to stay on. You can try removing fuses that have to do with protecting the turn signal and hazard flasher circuit. If this allows the brake lights to go out then I think you will have narrowed it down. What other tests have you run? Have you removed and inspected the lighting in the rear? Do you have a trailer hitch? I ask because in some applications, there can be a 12volt power source. If the power wire shorts against the brake-light wire, you can have this fault. Please let me know if this helps and feel free to write back with any questions. Be as detailed as you can. You are the eyes and ears of this subject, good luck.

look at the brake pedal there is a switch connected to it with a plunger to turn on the brake lights the stopper for the switch probably has fallen out you will need to stick a new one in.It is a very cheep easy fix.

I have 98 toyota corolla ce and the headlights stay on everytime i turn the engine on...my question is how can i turn them off in the daytime???


In Canada it's mandatory to have DRL(Daytime Running Lights). Your Corolla probably has this feature built in. it is a safety thing however I can understand you wanting them off if it's not the law where you live.
In our 1998 Corolla, I use the parking brake all the time - every time I park - and I've noticed the lights do not come on until I release the parking brake after starting the motor. When I park the car, until I shut off the engine, the lights stay on regardless of the parking brake status however, if I shut off the engine and restart with the parking brake on, the lights do not come on.
If you "adjust' the parking brake switch(i.e.: make e-brake light in your dash it stay on all the time) your lights will not go on until you turn them on via the multifunction lever(left side of wheel). This of course negates the benefits of the e-brake light working correctly (warning you that your e-brake is on or that your brake fluid level is low) which in itself is not so safe!
There is a fuse/relay (I think) in the big fusebox under the hood that has a DRL "spot", you might want to check if you can remove it and still turn the lights on manually when you want them on. Alternately, there is a fuse in the interior fuse box(in Canadian models anyway) labelled DRL. When that fuse is out, it seems the lights only turn ob when I turn them on manually.
Hope this helps and God bless,
Gilbert

ABS light went on while driving and noise stays on after ignition is turned off.


There is a relay inside of the ABS motor housing that can stay engaged making the motor run continuously without the key in the run position. If this is the problem the only fix is to replace the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve assembly. You may also may need to replace the Control Module that is attached to it.

The motor can be unplugged from the module and will shut off. The ABS light will stay on until it if fixed properly. The other way to shut down the motor is to remove the ABS fuse in the underhood fuse box.

The ABS module and BPMV are expensive and the brakes will have to be bled. Junk yard parts can be cheaper if your capable to replace them.

2000 VW Jetta E-Brake Light indicator beeps when brake is off


I fixed mine!! First check your ebrake switch by starting your vw and putting the ebrake on. If your daytime running lights stay on when the ebrake is engaged, its NOT the switch. Stay with me here. Turn vw off and pull fuse number 5. Mine was blown, but the legend only shows a pic of a book with an exclamation point. Meaning the book will tell you what it is, BUT IT DOESN'T . I replaced the 7.5 amp fuse and voila, victory. If it is not number 5, pull every fuse one at a time and inspect them closely. Do not assume, check each one. That is how I found mine after I bought and replaced the $10 switch. Running lights stay on because the switch is not being acknowledged, not because it is bad. I searched every forum I could find on this and there were no answers to this problem anywhere. So I am posting so there is an answer out there. What put me on the right track was the running lights staying on when the ebrake was engaged after I put in the new switch.

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail


If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!
