On My 1998 Toyota Camy when the car is on my brakes lights wont go off but if the car its off the brake light work fine why??


These Toyotas had daytime running lights. The headlights and the taillights turn on when you start the car. If you press the brake pedal, the rear lights (and the brake light in the rear window) should come on brighter.

I have never heard of the brake light staying on (The brighter filament in the two-filament bulb). Hope this helps.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe brake light switch wont stay in position and the brake lights stay on. I replaced the switch and had the same problem.


Brake Light Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disable the SIR system (if equipped).
  3. Remove the clip (R/V Series) or unclip the switch (C/K Series) and unplug the electrical connector from the brake light switch.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

My 1991 Omtero brake awrning light stays on... All pads and shoes are good, resevoir is full, and brakes are functioning... When emergency brake is raised the light gets brighter, and goes back to dim when...


Sounds like you need to replace the switch that goes to the parking brake. This switch is located close to the parking break and it's only function is to remind you that the parking brake is on. You can get this part from any major part store.

Tail lights stay on


make sure it is not the brake lights on instead. press the brake pedal and have someone see if the lights gets brighter. if not so you need a new brake light switch. if they do get brighter the brake light switch is fine and the headlight switch is bad instead

1993 blazer parking brake light won't shut off


Are you sure the brake light (on the dash) is on because of the parking brake ?
Try this. Watch the brake light and at the same time set your parking brake. If the light seems to get slightly brighter then it isn't on due to the parking brake it is on for another reason.
If it does not get brighter then you need to look at the parking brake switch down by the parking brake as it may be grounded out causing the light to be on.
Be sure to check the brake fluid level. If it is low on brake fluid it will turn the light on also.

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.

95 Buick Park Ave. Paking Brake!!!


The switch for that light is on the e-brake assy. If you look above the pedal there will be a one wire switch on the mechanism.

95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off


Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?
