Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

'97 SLS - brake lights don't turn off when i release the brake.

Brake lights come on after driving the car for 10 min's after hitting the brakes, then they won't go off. i release the brake pedal but all the brake lights stay on. even after shutting off the car the lights stay on. I have to pull the fuse for 5 min. then put the fuse back in, this seems to reset something - i've replace all tail lights w/ new bulbs and checked the wires for cracks - none. can't locate any shorts or crossed wires. it only started happening this week.

I would definitely go after the brake light switch under the L/S dah at the brake pedal . Sounds like it might be sticking. Hope this helps

95 Regal Custom, ABS code #95 brake switch circuit and no brake lights. Replaced SLS still no change.


Check the brake light switch (location pedal) unplug the switch & bridge the wires & if the brake lights come on the switch is faulty. all you are doing by bridgeing the wires is bypassing the switch. What is SLS?

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

There is likely a siezed cable or caliper,possibly because the hand brake hasn't been used regularly.Jack up the rear of the car,see which wheel,or both are stuck.The cable(s) will then need to be cut close to the wheel,or possibly hammered back.

While driving my brakes will apply and i have to turn the car off for 15 min to get them to release


It would seem silly to me, that you would even
drive a car like that, or be here telling us

Even ABS Braking System Issues, are not
going to apply the brakes & take 15 min to
release

Use common sense & get it to a repair shop
or dealer before you hurt yourself

97 honda civic dx the parking brake wont release and it sticking.


what i find common is the parking brake handle slides up over time covering the release button and not allowing the park brake to go down. can you push the button with your fingertip while pulling up on the handle and release the park brake? if so you can tap the handle to the rear with out hitting the button. protect the button with a socket or use a block of wood next to the button. don't hit the button.

Hitting the emergency brake's has nothing to with the brake lights on the back of the vehicle , you had to have this problem before an just didn't notice . Are all the brake lights lit ? High mount lamps too.. ? The regular one's are controlled by a BCM - body computer .
