It sounds to me like the master cylinder may not be returning all the way to the rest position. does the pedal eventually turn off the brake light's once it sits for a bit? if it does I would try having the brake system flushed there may be dirt in the bore or it could be gummed up, not allowing for full return. if the brakes are working fine a small carburetor return spring on the pedal might do the trick with out replacing the master.

hope this helps
Mike

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Brake lights are stuck on on my 1992 buick Riviera. Draining battery. How do I fix this?


There is a brake light switch down on the brake pedal arm its like a push button switch when you press the brake pedal down the button goes in on the switch making the brake lights come on and when you release the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it sticks in the brake lights will stay on even when your foot is off the brake pedal so all you have to do is buy the brake switch and either replace it yourself or have a shop replace it and your lights should go off thus no killing of your battery.

Brake lights stick on


It sounds like the brake light switch down on the brake pedal is stuck and it needs replaced,Its got like a push button setup when you apply the brakes the brake pedal pushes the brake switch button in brake lights come on and when you relase the brake pedal the button on the switch comes back out and brake lights go out but if switch is worn out or sticking the lights will stay lit even when off the brake pedal so just replace the brake light switch down on the brake pedal.
