Underneath the dash you'll find a switch that is supposed to clip into a bracket on the brake pedal hangdown mount. If it's unclipped, just clip it back in. If it's in place, check that the switch works if you press it by hand. If it doesn't work, replace it, if it works it might need readjusting - see if it can "pull out" about 3 or 4 clicks.

My car had the same problem the switch that touches the peddle was fine but the small bumper it was supposed to push against fell off leaving a hole. i just jb weld a small piece of metal to fill in the hole. i made small adjustments to the switch to compensate for the raised piece.

Town country van won't start only mileage lights come on. break light peddle sometimes will stick and kills battery. but now it won't even turn over


Hey Lisa,
With all that you have posted... sounds like the battery is being constantly drained.. you probably have "killed" this battery... this sounds serious.. you really need to take it to a qualified professional... (its brake light pedal)..

My brake lights will not turn off they stay on constantly and wont work while i am driving


In most cases this would indicate a defective brake light switch.
My experience with this come from a 2001 ford windstar which would work well most times but every now and then would run the battery dead. Due to the higher cost of replacement switch I discovered function / actuation mode of the same switch did some adjustments and fixed it. Same switch now working perfectly with no relapse for over one year.
If you are sure the brake pedal is returning all the way up then it is more than likely the switch. Do not be afraid to give it a look to see if you can correct the problem with some minor adjustments.
If i remember correctly a good strong sharp utility knife was used when I fixed mine, be careful not to cut yourself!!

After disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting there is a constant clicking and the brake light is flashing


Try disconnecting the battery and ensure it is fully charged, recharge if necessary. Leave it disconnected overnight if possible.

Unlock and open the car, fit the ignition key and switch on and then reconnect the battery (leaving the door open).

This has worked for me. I hope it works for you.
