Probably a short in the lamp socket.
Sometimes the socket gets hot and melts the terminals together.
Or it could be a problem in the wiring including the steering column.

2002 Astro brake lights stuck on


Chevy has a different circuit for the brake-lights. Strange that the brake-lights don't go out, after the fuse and/or relay is removed. Unplug the brake-light switch. Are the brake-lights out now? The brake-light circuit travels through the turn signal switch. There could be a failure inside the turn signal switch or there could be a short in the circuit, causing the brake-lights to stay on. You can try removing fuses that have to do with protecting the turn signal and hazard flasher circuit. If this allows the brake lights to go out then I think you will have narrowed it down. What other tests have you run? Have you removed and inspected the lighting in the rear? Do you have a trailer hitch? I ask because in some applications, there can be a 12volt power source. If the power wire shorts against the brake-light wire, you can have this fault. Please let me know if this helps and feel free to write back with any questions. Be as detailed as you can. You are the eyes and ears of this subject, good luck.

My rear brake lights stay on in my 2001 bmw


The switch on your brake pedal has failed, this is a common issue and will require a new brake light switch, if you look at the top of the brake pedal arm you will see where the switch is located and how it is removed.

Right and left brake lights do not work when brake pedal depressed. Both tail lamps work as well as both turn signals


Hi,
check the brake light switch located in the brake pedal area. Normal procedure is to remove the two wires and connect a jumper' wire between them, check and see if the rear brake lights operate. Check the brake light switch and see if it is adjustable. If so, re-connect the removed wires, adjust the position of the switch untill the brake lights operate,when the brake pedal is depressed, then secure the brake light switch.

The rear light assemblies need to be removed and the replaced. The filaments have either melted together or the wrong ones installed at some point. Let me know if you need anything else.

Left and right rear brake lights are out. center brake light comes on. rear blinkers are out too. front blinkers blink fast like a blown bulb but they arent blown. fuses are good.


it sounds like you need to replace the turn signal switch ( also known as a multifunction switch). The brake lights also go through that switch; You will have to remove the cover from around the lower part of the steering column to gain access to the switch.Hope this helps. Please leave comment.

Left and right brake light doesn't work but center lights does


check behind the brake peadle for a little button that pushes in and out when the peadle is pressed(this is your brake light switch) some cars have more than one of theese. manualy let the button out if the light works the switch is good if it does not disconect the harness from the switch and take a small piece of wire and jump the two prongs on the harness if the brake lights come on then you need a brake light switch. if this doesnt work check for power at the switch. if no power you have a bad fuse if there is power and you already jumped the wires to the switch then you have a broken wire between the switch and the tail lights.
