If it seems to still be in overdrive when you come to a stop, the brake light switch has an electric cut out switch incorporated in it to shut off power to the trans/overdrive to kick it out of OD. If this switch is malfunctioning, it can cause this problem your having.

Why is the brake light on after putting front brakes on


Do you mean the brake lights on the rear of the vehicle or the brake light on the dash?

My brake light did not warn me that i needed brakes


someone probably topped off your brake fluid when your brakes were low. the only way i know is to have new front and back brakes then make sure the brake fluid level is right . the light only comes on if your brake fluid goes low so the system has too much fluid if it says full and your brakes are not new front and back

Front lights ( Dims ) come on when I press break pedal


Sure sounds like someone transposed the power leads from the brake peddle and the light switch - or the ground is bad - and a back feed of power is causing this.
I suggest pulling the Headlight fuse to determine if that feeds the head or brake lights. Same with the brake fuse.

Ground feed back is most likely and most difficult to identify. A bad connection to ground - somewhere - can do some weird things to lights.

Brake lights stuck on every now and then and front lights


The brake light on the dash or the brake lights on the rear of the car?

If dash then check the brake fluid. Could be when you move forward it moves the fluid enough to make the light come on. So check and top off the fluid. If really low check your front pads.

if rear lights look at the brake peddle to make sure it is firm and not rudding on teh brake light switch.
