Brake lights stay on... '93 Oldsmobile Cutlass

My brake lights tend to stay on after i drive my car. If i tap them after i shut off the car, they will sometimes shut off. Most of the time they are stuck on. Can any one help? I don't want to bring it into the shop. They charge too much.

You need to replace the brake light switch its mounted up under the breake pedal. Very easy to replaced its always held by a clip or screw type bracket.

The light in the dashboard is staying red for the brakes. Ihave checked the brake , they are released so why is the brake light staying red olease


Because the brake pads have sensors on and when they wear down too far, they activate the brake warning light. Time for new brake pads!

They are unrelated. Just make sure your brake release is fully relesed. The switch turns the light on if the release isn't against it fully.
