SOURCE: Brake Lights Stay On When Car Is Off

Is it the brake light or the tail light? Does it go out when you pull back on the brake pedal?

SOURCE: Tail Lights & Brake Lights stay on even when car is turn off

the plastic round stopper most probably broke that is were the stoplight switch sits when not depressed easy fix find a washer small enough to block the hole were the original plastic stopper was making sure the washer aligns to the brake light switch and secure washer w/ zipties hope this helps.

It sounds like your brake pedal switch is not working right. Are the lights on all the time, or just when you turn ignition off? If the former, it is bad brake switch. If the latter, you likely have a bad ground located somewhere in the wiring harness.

Most vehicles have the switch located on a small plate next to the brake pedal arm. Follow the pedal up the arm and to the firewall. Along the way you should see a plunger style switch that looks like the one that you bought. It might also be found inside or next to the brake booster under the hood.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda CRV Check Engine light

the check engine lamp is not affected by things like tyres, brakes etc. It shows that the vehicles engine management system had detected a fault with the engine or engine sensors. Check the engine for broken or disconnected wiring (maybe it was disconnected during the replacing of the hoses but not reconnected). If you fail to locate anything, check the manual for the correct fault code retrieval procedure or take the vehicle to a professional. Tyres may affect your ABS system or Airbag systems but they usually have their own warning lamp and are unrelated to the check engine lamp..

2009 Suzuki swift hatchback automatic 40000km and squealing brake noise and engine light is on why?

The two matters are unrelated. The squeaking brakes are because you need new brake pads, if you have new pads... the mechanic failed to use brake shim grease which stops the squeak. In severe cases, the front disc brakes may be scored... scratched deeply and require replacement. If you replace the front disc pads, replace the rear brake shoes as well! The service engine light is timed by your dealer to remind you when to take your car in for a service check. Many models have a sequence of steps that one can find on-line to reset the service indicator light back to re-zero the count.

Brake lights wont turn off when brakes are disengaged. is there a switch in which could be bad on it?

there is a brake light switch located at the top of your brake, take connector off and adjust by turning1/4 at a time, reconnect and check if light goes off and on. Might have to do this a couple of times. If light continues to stay on check the play in your brake pedal and adjust accordingly . If still on, remove and replace brake light switch

Front brakes continue to squeak.

to help with pad squeel when you take brake pads out clean all rust from the caliper where the pad slides and put some copper grease on the areas that contact this should help, while you have caliper off check the slider pins too as they may have rubber stuck to them, if they do buy new pins or scrape rubbish off and copper grease them up too, hope this helps.

Front end rattle that goes away when brakes applied

the squeaking sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. And the pulling to one side is cause by unequal braking pressure caused by plugged rubber brake hose, bad calipers or wheel cylinders. Check the bearings by lifting the car with a jack, block the wheels, and use a jack stand for safety. now wiggle the tire around. If it has any play, the bearing is bad. Replace it. I would replace your brakes as well. Good luck

Honda crv 2003 - squeaking / squealing nosie from passenger side that disappears when braking or turning hard

If only the pads were changed then you can't expect much

Proper brake service requires hours of rust removal,lubing
certain places & parts,new or machined rotor,fluid flush and
much more.

No reason at all for brakes to squeak except poor & sloppy

99% of that comes from the pros

Those who work on there own cars eventually learn the
proper way to do things & resolve problems

I don't know your situation or where the work was done or
by whom

You could have rusted & frozen caliper pistons from never
changing brake fluid every 2 years or bad flex hose holding
pressure on pads.

Front passenger brakes make a squeaky noise when driving. Brakes have been replaced recently.

When a rotor is brand new they are coated with keep from rusting...if you don't clean them before installing them it can lead to brake fade,glazing and or may have a caliper seizing up keep the brakes lightly applied good luck

Squeeky brakes

how bad do they squeak, is this after a recent brake job? minor squeak is normal and doesn't affect the performance of the brakes, u can apply a product call "brake quiet" to the back of the disk brake pads, it really works, contact Napa auto parts to buy this.

Drivers side front squeaks really bad especially when u turn the wheel i meen realy bad help plz

Remove the wheel, and inspect the brakes you might find that they are down to metal meaning all the stopping material is worn off or the warning indicator is touching the rotor causing the squeal and telling you its time to replace the brake pads
