Most likely your switch under the dash needs replacing, or you have a short, take a light and look under your dash up the brake pedal lever and you should be able to locate it, it will be a button most probably and it will be stuck in, or shorted.

Replace my brake switch on my 2000 Dodge ram pick up and my brake lights still don't work


Brake switch must be adjusted such that it is depressed with pedal up and released as soon as pedal is slightly depressed.

Brake lights don't come on when pedal is pressed, all other lights work. What could be the cause?


While I'm not overly familiar with Mercedes, I'd assume that it still has a brake light switch located on the bar of the brake pedal itself. This switch is typically just a "plunger" style switch, where when you push the pedal down as if applying the brakes, the plunger extends outward turning the brake lights on. When the pedal is released, as if letting off the brakes, the plunger is depressed causing the lights to shut off. If that plunger gets stuck in a depressed position, the lights will remain off at all times. Check that first, along with the brake light fuse and/or relay. Good luck.

2001 Chevy Cavalier no brake lights but turn signals/hazards/backups work just fine. any ideas?


WHEN YOU APPLY BRAKE PEDAL, do you see brake lights come on ? if no then the switch is not working fine ! switch turns lights on when you depress the pedal, releasing the plunger, lights go out when you release the pedal. this switch has a fuse @ fuse block. check it ! if ok, and brake lights do
not come on replace switch, & mount properly in bracket.

The rear brake lights are staying on when car is off and brake pedal isn't applied.I replaced brake switch and disconnected the multifunction switch.They remain on.What is causing them to stay on?


The tricky part about replacing the Stoplight switch is positioning it perfectly - the bracket holding the switch must be in the right place (unbent), and the large nuts mounting the Brake light switch to the bracket must hold the switch at just the right distance from the flange on the brake pedal which actuates the brake light switch - or else the switch will think that the pedal is being depressed even though its not.
One problem that comes up is that these brackets may get bent
over time (especially with panic stops and/or collision(s) in the history of the vehicle), and the automotive electrician must then unbend metal to properly install a Stoplight switch.

Here's a picture of the Stoplight switches used in 2003 Grand Ams:

Brake lights quit replaced brake light switch, still no brake lights. fuse is good, turn signals work and running lights work


there is a switch attached at the top of the brake pedal. when you depress the brake pedal, the switch applys a ground to the circuit energizing the lights. the switch is faulty or the wiring is bad

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

2001 Dodge stratus cruise control dosen't work


One thing to check is the micro switch on the brake pedal arm, I had the same problem.
For some reason the switch came loose and it wasn't being depressed.
All I had to do is re adjust it so it would depress the plunger on the switch when the brake was not applied and activate the switch when the brake pedal was depressed.
I set it to the sensitive side so when you barley tap the brake pedal it shuts off the cruise control.

Hope this helps.

The brake lights won't go off even though the car is off. I checked everything (no doors open, not the parking brake). On my drove home, the brake pedal was making a metalic clicking noise when I pressed...


hi from uk this fault is most probably your brake pedal switch is not being pushed to off poosition by pedal when released hence b/lights stay on the b/lights do operate with and without ignition on on hyundais as for your symptoms of clicking ?? as pedal pressed ? this may well be there is a crack on pedal box or the pedal ? strongly advise you check this out ! however for now you can reach under lower dash and diconnect the wire plug from the b/light switch or remove fuse for brake lights to prevent battery drain and or blowing bulbs eventually due to higher wattage of brake lights bulbs heating up if left on hope this helps?
