Brake light stays on

You probably have a bad brake light switch. The switch is located under the dash, mounted to the arm of the brake pedal. There is also a wire harness connected to the switch - try unplugging that harness, then check if the brake lights are off. If so, replace the switch.

Brake light stays on

the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

1985 Nissan Maxima. Brake lights remain on at all times.

Follow brake pedal arm up under dash, it should be there and arm pushes against it when pedal released. Not too bad to do, just getting there is the fun part.

Rear lights stay on

on you brake pedal, there is a switch, that switch is what turns your brake lights on and off.  Must be stuck in "on" position.  This is a common problem for the brake light NOT to come on, but I suppose the reverse could also be true.  Check this switch, unplug it and see if your lights go off.  If they do the switch is to blame.  See if you can "oil" up the switch or clean it.  You would be supprise at how much dust and debris can jam those switches.

2003 Nissan Sentra Brake lights stay on

When you depress the brake pedal, the brake pedal will move away from the brake light switch and cause a close circuit and the brake lamps light up. There is a rubber bunk on the pedal which pushes against the brake light switch to shut it off when you release the brake pedal. Most likely this rubber bunk has either fallen off or disintegrated leaving a hole in the brake pedal so there is nothing to push against the switch to shut it off. Look up the brake pedal until you see the brake light switch, then depress the brake pedal to see if the rubber bunk is still there. It is easy to replace. Or you can use some double sided adhesive tape and a coin and stick the coin over the hole in the brake pedal.

Brake light stays on. I can push brake pedal switch and lights go off. There are holes installed from factory on brake pedal arm where switches suppose to make contact. What's up with that? Can you help?

The hole in the pedal arm is for the cruise control. There is a plastic plug that needs to be in place to turn off the brake lights. They should be available at any dealer - there is also one for the clutch pedal arm in manual trans. These are required for the cruise as well as to turn off the brake lights. I bet that several will now be able to have their cruise back.
