2002 FORD EXPLORER REAR TAIL LIGHTS STAY ON WHEN CTRUCK IS OFF


Probably a stuck or misaligned brake lite switch, or weak brake pedal return spring. Lift the brake pedal, if lights go off, check those two items.

How do I adjust brake pedal on my mower


  1. Press down on the clutch pedal and set the parking brake.
  2. 2Identify the brake adjustment feature, located below the brake operating arm. It includes a jam nut, regular nut and rod. Measure the distance between the brake operating arm and the regular nut. The regular nut is distinct from the jam nut -- the jam nut is the outer nut.
  3. 3Loosen the jam nut and turn the regular nut so that it's exactly 1-1/2 inches between the arm and regular nut. Double-check that the parking brake is engaged, then re-tighten the jam nut so it abuts the regular nut and holds it in place at the correct distance. Try the riding mower stopping procedure again in a safe place.

I have a 95 silverado k1500 6.5 diesel my brake lite;s don't work


ohm the brake light switch by the brake pedal. if this is still good, chances are its your multifunction switch in the steering column. when you press the brake pedal it goes through the switch so that it can also break contact to allow for the turn signals to operate on either side.

Tail light out replaced both brake & tail lite bulbs nothing


It sounds like your brake light switch is out.  It's located on the brake pedal and is relatively easy and cheap to replace.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Tail light stays on (brake)


If brake lights remain on then inspect brake light switch. Brake light switch is located on top of brake pedal arm bracket. It is either out of adjustment or faulty.

Tail lghts/brake lights


Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

Emergency brake pedal will not stay down when i press it.


The parking brake actuator (the mechanism you press with your foot) works like a ratchet wrench. The pedal has a cresent shaped plate with teeth on it. It pivots on a mounting plate. There is a pawl with a small spring also on the backing plate. This pawl engages the teeth on the pedal assembly to hold the brake engaged (against the large return spring).
Stick your head under the dash and look carefully at the parking brake actuator mechanism. See why the pawl is not engaging the teeth on the pedal assembly. Most likely causes are that the release mechanism is jammed "on" or that the light spring which attaches to the pawl is missing (usually from being kicked by some one with large feet) View this mechanism on another GM vehicle with the same style parking brake if you suspect that parts are missing.

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off


hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

Brake Switch


follow brake pedal all the way up
you have to lay on your back with a flash lite
on the pedal there will be a backwards bolt this adjusts the brake light switch for deplition or engage ment
if your missing that bolt brake lights will stay on you will find a hole there
across from that hole or bolt (if there) you will see the brake switch thats how the bolt presses the brakes on and off
have a buddy watch tail lights as you press the switch there in
its simple not much else needed
you probably missing the bolt find a flat bolt about 1 inch long 2 nuts these are adjustment nuts
