If you follow the brake pedal up the steel arm its conectted to, and look up under the dash you will see a switch (The brake light switch) when you push the brake pedal the switch opens, but the switch end rests on rubber plug which fits into a hole, which usually deterorates over time and brakes into pieces and falls onto the floor.. The switch end then pokes through the hole where the rubber plug used to be and the brake lights stay on all the time, the little rubber plug is available at the honda store for 50 cents or you can use anything temporily like a (small fender nut) see link http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.manestruckparts.com/store/graphics/Product_Graphics/Product_376T.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.manestruckparts.com/store/store_sub.cfm%3FCategory_ID%3D10&usg=__Q9LXYqf_6VOH_Jn3813WmJ5zEGk=&h=75&w=71&sz=2&hl=en&start=51&um=1&tbnid=PLYNl3SU-dK9ZM:&tbnh=71&tbnw=67&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dchevrolet%2Bfender%2Bnut%26ndsp%3D18%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:*:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7TSHB%26sa%3DN%26start%3D36%26um%3D1

Why does my 2005 monte carlo idle high at stop signs/stop lights but not when i start it only when driving then when i shut the car off and start it again the idle is normal


check if the condition occurs when you have your foot on the brake at stop signs-stop lights. It may be an air leak in the brake booster that is allowing air into the manifold and altering the mixture to lean.

Look under the dash by the parking brake and try to see if any wires are being moved or chafed by the parking brake linkages. That is what I have found in the past.

There is a sensor under the brake lever. Try pulling up on the lever to see if the light shuts off. Most likely the cable needs some more tension so the lever does not rest on the switch/sensor causing the light to lite up.

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.
