Check the level of brake fluid also check behind all the wheels to make sure you have no leaks and if there is a leak there is air in the brake system it would have to be repaired and the brakes bleed but check all the brake pads as well

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser and the brake lights will not go off but the funny thing is I noticed that there is a box by the brake pedal that somehow fell and is hanging could this be the problem. I ha


That box probably is the brake switch. The brake light switch is usually, if not always, mounted on the brake pedal. You will have to look up under the dash at the upper end of the pedal. See if you can fit the box back onto the pedal. There should be a spring loaded button on one end that activates the switch. When pressed in, switch is off. When button or pin is out, switch is on, and brake lights are on.

The ESP light on my AudiA3 stays on


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty.
You should access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

If the problem still occurs you should access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS & ESP ECU, and reset it.

I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!

I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning light went ON, flashing and you can not take your ignition key out. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.

Two sensors are provided for engine starting authorization: The first one is placed on the automatic gearbox shift selector electronic module, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the shift knob is placed in park - "P" position, or in neutral - "N" position. Only now you can take out the ignition key from the ignition switch barrel. The second one is the brake pedal switch placed above brake pedal in the pedals bracket, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the brake pedal is depressed. Only now it is possible to cranking the engine by the electrical starter motor.

My car starts and all but i can't get in to come out of park, what do you think is the problem


First, check to make sure your brake lights are coming on when you press the brake pedal. This sounds strange, but the brake light curcuit is what powers the shift interlock safty solenoid. That is the solenoid that makes it impossable for a child to shift out of park without pressing the brake pedal first. If the brake lights don't work then you will need to check the fuse for the brake lights first. If that is OK then you will need to do some diagnostics on that curcuit.

If the brake lights are working;
It can be the interlock solenoid inside the shifter assembly, or something mechanical.

Check you owners manual for instructions on relesing the interlock manually so you can drive the car. It is usually a small slot or pin hole next to the shifter that you can insert a small pin or something and press down to release the shifter. I wouldn't recommend driving the car if the brake lights are not working.
