Possible that the brake light switch shorts with the circuit, sometimes this can be a brake switch ground shorting through the dash boarrd ground circuit and turns the light on.
You need to disconnect the brake switch and trace the line. also check if the rear brake lamp circuit is shorting in the tail lamp assembly and so turns the dash /park light circuit ON.
This can happen if the tail lamp assembly /holder is shorting. So remove and check the tail lamp circuit/ the park/brake lights.
lamp failure light on possible because the SECOND filament in your STOP/TAIL Light Bulb is burned out- change one side and check fail lamp again- repeat on other side- fail lamp works off of resistance-burned or blown bulb is only way it lights unless you have a wiring issue
Sounds like maybe a bad turn signal switch. If the brake and turn signal use the same bulb than the turn signal switch will interrupt the brake signal and supply a turn signal to the bulb. Usually you can wiggle the switch while holding the brake pedal down and get them to intermittently work. If that happens than for sure the switch has failed.
Sounds like a brake lamp switch or fuse.
Check all fuses electrically, with a test probe you can purchase from any auto parts store. Go through each fuse with the probe touching the end or tip of the fuse after clipping the lead on the probe to a good ground. If the probe lights up at both ends of the fuse, the fuse is sound, if it only lights up at one end then replace that fuse and if the probe does not light up at all, that fuse is not active so turn on the ignition but dont start the motor.
The brake lamp switch is attached to the brake pedal. It may have a single wire or several. All the switch does is connect the brake lamp circuit to an active supply rail so, The switch should have one active wire and the other wire should become active when the pedal is pressed. If it does not, replace the switch. If it does, then you may have two blown bulbs in the rear lamps or a damaged wiring harness to the rear lamps and you should seek the advice of a qualified person. Start with the fuses, then the switch, then the bulbs..and remember, you may have more then one fuse panel in the vehicle so check under the hood too..
Remove lower steering column cover and knee blocker panel from instrument panel.
With the brake pedal fully pressed, rotate the stop lamp switch counter clockwise 27 degrees and remove switch from the mounting bracket.< Just turn Count clockwise until you feel it unlock from its previous location, then pull it towards you>
Disconnect wire connector from stop lamp switch by depressing the lock tabs holding stop lamp switch to mounting bracket and remove switch.
Its recommended to have someone push the brake pedal for you, can be tough to push it while trying to get his out.
Connect the harness connector to the stop lamp switch.
While pressing the brake pedal, insert switch into the keyed hole in the bracket and rotate the switch into the locked position.
Gently pull back on the brake pedal until the pedal will go no further. This will cause the switch plunger to ratchet backward to the correct position. No further adjustment is necessary.
I think your brake light switch is defective or needs an adjustment. The brake pedal is not making a connection to the brake light switch the brake lights will not brighten when you hit your brakes. If you are going to fix it yourself feel free to contact me and I will guide you through the repair.
Your vehicle's brake lamp switch is located on top of the brake pedal arm bracket. Most brake lamp switches can be adjusted if they cause the lamps to stay on, however sometimes a replacement of the switch is the only solution.
