Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Hi ...... the brake pedal circuit is 'live' even when the ignition is switched off. Its sounds like you have a 'short' between the brake circuits and the rest, my guess would be at the back of the car. Have you had any work done lately ? Or heavy object in the boot/trunk ? Check ither side of the boot/trunk (behind or near rear lights) for chaffed, broken or melted wires. Make up a simple bulb testing lamp, one 12v bulb with a wire on positive and one on negative and place these wires into/on the wires going to your rear lights (neg' to earth) ......... this will tell you if the circuit has power going to it and by going back along the route you'll pinpoint the damaged or problem area. First step is to make sure both rear light clusters have good earthing points.
Let us know how you get on.
