My brake lights do not work and it is suuck in park, I haved put a new brake light switch in and that did not work

There is a switch nicknamed a BOO switch. It is on the brake lever under the dash. This is often adjustable and controls the brake lights and the release for the gearshift. When properly adjusted it makes the rear lights come on as soon as the brake pedal moves. There is a release for the gearshift that uses a solenoid so even if you get the brake lights to work, a bad gearshift solenoid may keep the Park locked.

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta

Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

I have an 02 mazda tribute and my breaks and blinkers stopped working all of a sudden. I can't even get it out of park since I can't uses my breaks to shift. No break lights either??!

The brake light switch at the brake pedal controls the brake lights and the gearshift release solenoid. It should have no effect on the signal lights. You may have 2 problems. You can try tapping the brake light switch and moving the contact plunger by hand to see if the brake lights/shift release will work. If it starts operating again, I would replace it immediaetly before it fails completely

2002 Oldsmobile Alero Brake Lights spuratically stay on and kill my battery

sounds like an electrical problem in your steering collumn, alot of times all of your brake lights and turn signal lights go through your hazard light switch, so if there is a short in the wiring somewhere in your steering column before it branches off to the different lights, it will cause this to happen, iv seen it happen on mutliple vehicals, never on your particular vehical but that may be the root of your problem

Air bag light on for ford 2001 suddenly

Be careful. You do not want the air bag to deploy on you suddenly. Check the air bag fuse on the vehical, it may need to be replaced. If your air bags have been deployed recently, the lights do not turn off until the dealer turns them off for you.

My 2003 rendezvous ignition wont turn with the key inserted. The lights are coming on but the dashboard only lights up a little.

Check your battery connections and try jumping it sounds like faulty charging system either bad connection,battery or alternator auto zone will test alternator and battery for free. Culprit is probably bad connection at battery terminal wiggle and watch for light fluctuation on dash.Clean to shine at connection.Hope this helps.
