On this car, I think, the light is dual purpose, it shows up when the parking brake is on and when the wear sensors in the brake pads detect that the pads are too low. It could be that you need new brake pads.

SOURCE: Warning light on dash says "Lights" but all lights work?

Disconnect vehicle battery for 2 minutes, reconnect battery and vehicle will do a system check, if all is ok the light will go out.

SOURCE: A/c,remote key lock ,dome light,and brake light warning lite stays on

I just brought my car in because the AC was working, but not blowing cold. The emergency brake light won't go off. And the automatic door locks won't work (the doors lock manually but not auto). We just got the call that the entire fuse box under the steering wheel needs to be replaced. 270 for the part, 300 for the labor. !?!?!?!? It all just happened over the last weekend! They said not to drive it anywhere because you never know and all the electric could go!!! Not sure what caused it, but it sounds like I'm not the only one...

SOURCE: glow plugs warning light + brake lights on

I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
Good luck

Why is my brake warning light stay on?


There is enough of a brake fluid leak to move the valve that turns on the light. Solve the fluid leak first then bleed the brakes to reposition the brake warning valve so the light goes off. It's best to have a brake shop do the work.

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Brake lights stay on


The warning light on the dash, or the brake lights in the back of the car ? ?
The brake fluid could be low or the parking brake switch could be faulty if the warning light is on.
The brake light switch on the pedal could be faulty if the brake lights are staying on.
