The brake lights on my 1999 ford contour are staying on after the car is shut off

    Parked the car this evening and noticed all three rear brake lights were still one. Double checked the ignition switch and the headlight switch...could not get the rear brake lights to shut off. Pulled on the brake pedal, made sure there wasn't any debris behind the pedal, and still the rear brake lights stay on. This is, by the way, even with the key removed and the car completely shut down

Display brake pedal switch 99 ford contour


The BOO (brake on-off) switch may have come out of the retainer or just slipped back. It's on the brake pedal arm above the pedal.

Push it into the bracket until the button is pushed in. If it won't stay put, use needle nose pliers to bend the tabs in just a little.

Brake lights work on 1999 ford contour but are very dim


if they are working,, but are dim try checking the ground wire, most likely the ground wire is loose and not making good connection and that will cause a draw on your lights..

1999 ford contour se custom sport check engine light stays on recently had new alternator replaced and when i turn heat on it only runs on hi otherwise car is running ok will the check engine light go off...


Contour's are notorious for check engine lights. Mine has been on for years. The only way really to reset the CEL is to rent or buy a code reader and record the codes that are stored. Information on CEL codes is available on the internet. FYI the most common code for contour's are P0420 and P0421. These won't cause any driveability issues. As for your heater problem, your fan blower relay is toast
