Brakelights won't go off on my 1998 Escort

Your brake lights stay on due to a small rubber pad about the side of a nickel, which is supposed to be stuck in a small hole about 6 inches above your brake pedal, way up where you have to stick your head under the dashboard to see it, with a flash light. if you look up there & you can see that it is missing, you need a new one from the dealer. if the rubber pad is intact, then the switch that it touches (plunger-type switch) is bad. That is the brake light activation switch. Usually it's the rubber plug that has disintegrated.

Third brake light stays on; brakelights very dim; radio, clock, flasher emblem on dash blink when turn signals are used; signals flash fast when brake pedal is applied.

Sounds like you have a short somewhere in the brake circuit. May be between the brakes and the blinkers in the brake lights.

Neither brake light will come on when I get on brake.Changed the fuse and bulbs already. keyless device only work sometimes. Put new CR2016 batteries in. Please help!!!

suspect a bad brake light switch,on the brake pedal itself.the key need not be on when checking the brake light switch.but requires 2 to insure the brake lights come on,one to push the brake. theres a switch on the brake pedal itself. look above the brake pedal pad that you push to apply the brakes. you will see a plunger that moves in and out,just to supply the current to the brakelights.if the plungers out of sync,it will not work. or it may only be stuck.or simply bad,if it moves and brake lights do not work. if the plunger works on visual inspection,and is plugged up,the switch is suspect to be bad. thank you,for choosing!! SIMPLE SOLUTION,CHECK THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. IT MAY ONLY BE BLOWN. UNDER THE DASH ON DRIVERS SIDE CLOSEST TO YOUR LEFT FOOT WHEN APPLYING BRAKES. WITH FLASHLIGHT,CHECK FOR BLOWN BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. if this fails,check for blown brakelight bulbs. unlikely that both brake light bulbs blown at once! but not unusall. thank you for choosing!!

I have a 1995 Honda Accord ES and the breaklight stays on. What could causse it?

The chances are that your brake light switch is faulty, it's located on the brake pedal support bracket, disconnect the wires, if lights go out it will either be the switch needs replacing or switch contact in relation to foot brake pedal needs readjusting

1998 Accord: 1998 honda accord sedan break lights stay on...

In all probability, the brake switch got stuck in the closed position. One way to test it is by trying to move the shift lever from Park to Neutral without depressing the brake. If you can do this, then the switch is damaged. It is very simple and inexpensive to replace.It is located a few inches above the brake pedal rubber pad.

Tail lights stay on when car is off

Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps

1994 Honda Accord Brakelights (all 3)stay on even when car is off

There is a brake light switch located under the dash at the top of the arm that the brake pedal is mounted to. It either needs to be adjusted or is faulty. This switch is what makes your brake lights come on and it will do this whether the car is on or off. Most likely just needs to be adjusted so that the tip of the switch isn't touching the brake arm until you push the pedal. Its very simple to adjust

Brake lights stay on and ignition is off

your brake light switch has malfunctioned. it is locatad on top of the brake pedal but you have to stand on your head to see it up there it is a very easy fix one nut and one wire clip. when you replace it have some one watch the back of the car while you push the brakes. you will have to adjust the switch so that when you tap the brake pedal a little ways the brake lights come on. and if you do not feel comfertable to do this you can take it to a repair shop of your choice. i hope this helps you. and please rate my solution
thank you

If you are referring to the "brake lights" at the rear of the Accord, then it would be the brakelight switch mounted on top of the brake pedal that needs checking. It is most likely shorted. There are instances that the wires/connectors might also require checking over while at times, it could just be a spring missing.

If on the other hand, you are referring to the brake indicator in the dashboard, then that signifies that your brake fluid level in the reservoir is getting low and would require topping. It could also indicate that some of your brake pads are getting thin.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
