You need to adjust those nuts so that it goes out. Back it off, so that switch moves away from pedal. leave some clearance, very slight, between plunger & where it makes contact. Then tighten both nuts to keep it in place.Not too much clearance, just enough that lights go out.

Ford f150 brake light problems


You didn't say what year the truck is, so this answer may not fit.
Trucks made before 2000 often use a two wire switch, power goes out from the brake switch to the turn signal switch, then to the lamps. You might want to unplug the turn signal switch to see if the short is there. The lamps are grounded at the sockets.
Trucks made after 2000 use a 5 wire switch.

Brake lights stay on even if i pull fuse or take off brake light switch


Sounds like the turn signal switch is bad, since the brake light circuit is routed through the turn switch.

Replaced fuse for horn/brake lights. horn will work but brake light stays on so i removed fuse..How do i get lights to stay off when fuse is installed?


look at the brake pedal there is a switch connected to it with a plunger to turn on the brake lights the stopper for the switch probably has fallen out you will need to stick a new one in.It is a very cheep easy fix.

Had to pull fuse # 23 brake switch to get the back lights to shut


If it's the brake lights, you may need to adjust your stoplight switch under the brake pedal bracket. If it's the taillights, then you will need to trace and diagnose it. Which lights are staying on and which circuit does fuse #23 operate?

Thanks,

Kevin

2000 VW Jetta E-Brake Light indicator beeps when brake is off


I fixed mine!! First check your ebrake switch by starting your vw and putting the ebrake on. If your daytime running lights stay on when the ebrake is engaged, its NOT the switch. Stay with me here. Turn vw off and pull fuse number 5. Mine was blown, but the legend only shows a pic of a book with an exclamation point. Meaning the book will tell you what it is, BUT IT DOESN'T . I replaced the 7.5 amp fuse and voila, victory. If it is not number 5, pull every fuse one at a time and inspect them closely. Do not assume, check each one. That is how I found mine after I bought and replaced the $10 switch. Running lights stay on because the switch is not being acknowledged, not because it is bad. I searched every forum I could find on this and there were no answers to this problem anywhere. So I am posting so there is an answer out there. What put me on the right track was the running lights staying on when the ebrake was engaged after I put in the new switch.
