Sounds like your brake light switch is sticking-its located under the dash and if you dont do any of your own mechanical work its a good idea to take it somewhere you trust. the part isnt a real expensive one but the labor is going to be the major part of the cost. Most shops charge at least a 1/2 hr of labor @ $80 per hr.

SOURCE: Hundai Accent 1999, back lights ( brake) - they light constantly

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.

There is a button on the break pads if you will check undernethe it and maybe the button stock if you need to replace it do so or just splray a wd40 so that it will stock.

SOURCE: 2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

When i shut the car off the brake lights remain on.


This is most likely a short in the instrument panel's(IP) logic chip. As long as you can start the car everyday, you can live with it or have the IP diagnosed and replace it. If you ever plan to leave it for a week or two. Disable the radio and nav systems if you have to, then remove the negative side of the battery. This light will drain the battery over time.

What are the symptoms of a bad PCM?


Symptoms of a Bad PCM , vehicle won't start an run sometimes ! You have other modules involved here ! ABS an BRAKE light lit are problems with the anti-lock brakes ! A sensor maybe ! You need to have the vehicles modules scanned for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . An depending what year , make an model vehicle it can have several hundred different codes possible. Newer vehicles have up wards of 10 or more modules .Your going to need a better grade scan tool like the one in this video ! Auto Repair The OTC Genisys Touch Scan Tool Sounds like you need to take this to a pro !

Why are 1994 pathfinder brake light, door ajar, check engine, and alternator lit?


when the battery is flat or removed from the engine then the CPU program can become corrupted . IT is always a good idea to use a scanner tool to reprogram the CPU properly to eliminate any faults that first show up before changing anything to the systems as this changes can create more problems than they solve especially if it was only a program problem to start with.

1999 HONDA ACCORD LX IS TURNNING OFF WHILE I DRIVE


when this stall happens notice if the speedometer drops to "0" while the vehicle is in motion, if some warning lights aren't lit (chk engine, ABS, brake etc.) when key is set to "On"!! If these issues happen when the vehicle "shuts off while driving" it may be caused by "ignition switch failure". Your vehicle may be part of a 2002 Honda/Acura recall. Symtoms include: intermitted power loss, intermitted engine shut off, some warning lights not lit, random hard starts. This happens more often in warmer/hot weather. Call your local dealer and provide them with your VIN# to check if your vehicle is still covered, they may fix it for free. Otherwise the part is about $48-$100!!

Engine shuts donw and "Fail Safe" message is displayed.


first thing you should do is have it plugged into a scanner to see what the problem is.places like auto zone and advance auto parts do it for free. then if it is the throttle position sensor its located on top of the engine not hard to do.but if its one of the four oxygen located on the exhaust sensors depends which one it is but usually requires special socket to remove them without stripping them, very hard.

Yellow engine light went on. What does this mean?


Hi there,

The yellow/orange Engine Check Light is an indicator that your vehicle's computer has detected an abnormality within the engine's electronics or emission system.

Sometimes it can be a one-off abnormality, which eventually rectifies itself within 40 drive cycles.

However, if the Engine light remains lit, then this is an indication of something more concerning (but not necessarily serious).

If it does remain lit when driving, then you should have your local Jaguar service agent scan the computer for "trouble codes", which will quickly identify the component and/or location of the problem.


Hope this helps...


Cheers,
