Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier. I checked the e brake it is off and pulled up on the reg brake. All the lights are working fine but the brake light on the dash stays on.
Check the brake fluid level, if its low the light will be on. Usually when the brake pads wear down the fluid will become low and thats about the time to change the pads. You should be able to add some fluid though and be ok for a bit. If you hear any funny sounds like grinding or squicking (sp) then its time for brakes.

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

You had it scanned? They didn't find any codes? If there were no codes, did the ABS computer even communicate? Also did you check the brake fluid, most newer cars have a float switch in the master. If the fluid is low that will set off the lights.

I had a similar problem with my 1994 S-10 LS extended cab. Both tail brake lights worked fine. I removed the 3rd brake light cover and tested for voltage at the steel center of the two rivets and found the positive (driver side) negative (passenger side) were good. I checked the two metal strips that send power to bulbs and found the positive side was open. Seems the flared side of the rivet was not making contact with the metal strip. I bucked the rivet with a punch and hammer and it took care of the problem.
