Why brake lights wont turn off?

What has happened is the switch on the brake peddle has moved. Reach under the dash and locate the switch and adjust it so the peddle is depressing the button.

My brake lights wont turn off in my 1992 chevy lumina i bought a brake light switch for it and tryed installing it i got it in but the brake lights never turn off when i hit the brake petal and releas

There should be a switch that is activated by the brake pedal. There should be a way to adjust the switch so the brake lights function correctly.

Break lights wont turn off until the battery is disonected..... rear ended someone not to much damage (hood and "gill" part...... ) engine compartment seems intact.


I think before you had hit the car in front of you, You did push the brakes too hard and that might make the Brake light switch stick and the lights will stay on soon as the battery is reconnected. So check the brake light switch which should be under your brake pedal. Good luck

My brake lights dont light up when i hit the brake petal n the turn signals wont work

Does the high mounted brake light work? If so, the brake switch is good. The next suspect if the fuses all ck out good and if the 4 way flashers work is the turn signal switch.

I have replaced the light bulb and the fuses and on the brakes lights, when i hit the brakes the lift brake lights work, but the the other two wont. How can i fix the problem?

try working the turn signal switch since brake lights are routed through it-sounds like the right turn section of ts switch isn;t disengaged

Brake lights

I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed
