Sounds like you have a bad brake pedal switch or it has come loose from the bracket.

It is located under the drivers side of the dash near the brake pedal lever. It will twist to disconnect it from the bracket. once removed fro the bracket it can be unplugged and replaced.

My 2000 Forester tail lights wont go off unless I pull the fuse out of the fuse box. It runs down the battery if I leave the fuse in.

That most likely is the brake lights staying on because the brake light switch under dash is out of adjustment and the brake pedal is not touching the button to shut it off. Possibly the spring is disconnected that pulls the pedal up against the brake light switch button. Check this out.

2002 chevy cavalier wont shift out of park unless I pull the bcm fuse

The shifter release solenoid is activated by the brake light switch. Check to see if the brake lights are working when you press the brake pedal. If not, that may be the reason why the shifter won't come out of park. You may need to replace or adjust the brake light switch. (It's located at the top of the brake pedal arm).

1998 Ford Taurus Lights will not go off at all unless battery is disconnected and the car wont start Key in ignition does nothing and lights just stay on Anyine know whats going on Is there ANY WAY to...

In this case, you most problemly have a brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake pedal mechanism. The rubber stop gromite maybe worn out. switch is open all the time. Also the clutch pedal maybe also have a damaged switch. You can make rubber pad with rubber floor matting or stick on picture frame wall hanging stick pads. Otherwise when you started & on the road again go to car parts centre & buy the correct parts for long term replacement. okay,

I have a 2001 pontiac aztek. The parking lamps and the tail lights will NOT shut off unless I disconnect the battery. The car also has a warning light that comes on and reads "Park Lamps Out". How do I fix...

Check brake switch near brake pedal most often it will be broken. sometimes you can try pulling up on the brake pedal to get the light to go out for a sec if that works it is the brake light switch. usually the warning light is tied to the actual light sockets it is also possible that the brake light switch went bad and from the tail lights staying on so long it may have melted the wires at the tail lights and now causing the warning light to light.

Tail lights not working, changed fuse and both bulbs.

If they are not working, meaning when you step on your brake pedal, then it is your brake light switch.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wiring connector at the switch.
  3. Remove the switch lock nut.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Install the switch and adjust it so the brake lights are not on unless the brake pedal is depressed.
It's located right behind the brake pedal.

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima

Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.
