Question about 2004 Kia Amanti

1 Answer

Brake lights won't turn off

I have a 2004 kia amanti and I accidently hit the emergency brake going down the road and notice that the brake light was on so I pulled off the road about a mile down the road and release the handle and took back off. When i got home I notice later that the brake lights were on so I went to check the dash and it was off so I engage and release the brake several times and that didn't help so then I unhook the battery cables for about one hour and hook them back and the brake lights came back on. Is it a sensor?

Sounds like it is a brake light switch located at the brake peddle. test the switch and if it is faulty replace it.

2004 kia amanti my battery light is on and a car with key symbol is on new battery sometimes car starts sometimes does not and i have to charge it to get it going

I don't have much experience with Kia but typically a key light is an immobilizer problem. If the key light is intermittant and coincides with the non start, that is probably it.

2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on

If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

This is your low coolant light and is probably just getting build-up and should be replaced.It will either be on the over flow bottle or on the radiator.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.

Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.

Hitting the emergency brake's has nothing to with the brake lights on the back of the vehicle , you had to have this problem before an just didn't notice . Are all the brake lights lit ? High mount lamps too.. ? The regular one's are controlled by a BCM - body computer .
