Park brake warning light ''on''

Park brake warning light is on which means the cruise control won't work. I took the center console apart to check the switch at the brake lever. This switch works fine. Any idea what to do next?

Look at your brake master cylinder, open the top to it, and check your brake fluid. If low, that is why the brake light is on. Or check to see if your emergency brake is pushed in. Check your fuses for the cruise control. Hope this helps, James Booth

Tail lights and hazards work but my brake lights dont work


Check the bulbs first of all (and fuses), if this is not the problem it is probably the brake light switch. If your car has cruise control, see if pressing the brakes make the cruise control go off. If not, you definitely have a bad brake light switch. If they do go off, though, it doesn't mean the brake light switch is not bad. You really need to take the swich off and test it with a multimeter set to ohms or continuity. If the switch tests bad, you know it has to be replaced, so if you are ambitious and mechanically inclined, you could take it apart and see if you can fix it. I was actually able to take a brake light switch apart, repair it, and put it back in the car on one occasion. It only worked for a few weeks, but it got me by.

My cruise control won't work and my brake light is on. The car is a 1994 Toyota Camry. Thank you.


Your brakes warning light or your actual brake lights? If it is your warning light that can come Monday if you're park break is on or slightly on or the switch that says that it is on is faulty, in which case it may tell your cruise control to turn off. If your brake lights stay on there's something pul to you about your switch by the pedal as your cruise will not work when you hit the bricks and this will be perceived as you hitting the brakes. A break warning light will also, come on if your brake fluid is low.

Electrical problems


sounds like the brake light switch is the culprit for both the intermittent brake lights and cruise control problems. the engine warning light could be an unrelated issue that needs to be diagnosed.
