Break light stays on

My dash break light came on about two weeks ago and stays on but only started doing this when the weather outside was very cold. When it's warm, it doesn't come on at all

    I meant my brake light. Today when I left for work it was in the twenties and the brake light stayed on the entire 30 mile drive to work. When I left today, the outside temp was 39 degrees and the light never came on at all. I checked the fluid and it is full. I haven't checked to see if the outside brake lights are on when the dash light is on.

Something is wrong with the ABS system. After the ABS system runs through it's self check when you get moving, it find a fault in the system. Do you have a code??? Go to any good auto parts store that will come out a check the codes for FREE. Call them first.

Please help.I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan.When I start the van the rear break lights would turned on automatically.When I step on the break the lights stays the same,no indication of breaking from the rear...

You have a bad break switch. It is located under your dash, above your break pedal. The stem of your break pedal, when pushed down, activates the break switch. When you push, the break light comes on. It is chrome looking. It is a round cylinder. That should fix you up. If you need anything else, please let me know. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

What would make the break lights on the outside stay on the whole time you are driving? Emergency break isnt on. 99 mercury cougar

Your brake switch is probably stuck. It is located under the dash in the cab, above the pedals. It is a chrome looking cylinder. It has a button on the end of it, when you push the break in, it releases the button. It is probably stuck.

Dash lights, starting, heater blower, head lights & blinker

Before going crazy with this, check all engine and body grounds to make sure everything is connected. it's possible something was left a bit loose when doing cylinder heads. Wont hurt to go over the positive battery and alternator connections as well!

Ford thunderbird wont start in Cold weather

change distributor cap first and see how it goes could have a crack in it.Failing which you need to test the ignition module when its cold as sometimes a component will break down and not work when its cold ,this is very much a hands on type job so if dist cap doesnt cure it call a mobile mechanic

I don't have the manual to my 2000 Jeep Cherekee Sport.

It is a 12v heavy guage wire that tends to burn out the point where it connects to a white plastic multi-pin connector near the fan. It comes back on when a viration jiggles the break closed.
It takes alot of time, patience and a limber back to climb under the dash and find it. I suggest going to a shop - < $100.

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
