Could be the switch for the parking brake, or the brake fluid level in the master cylinder.

2004 chrysler sebring. my break lights don't come on when i hit the break pedal.


There is a brake light switch on the pedal inside the cabin of the car, if this switch is bad your lights will not work, also I'm fairly confident that the Sebring has a seperate fuse for the brake lights, check your fuse panels also

How do i get my '97 volkswagon cabrio to stop thinking the emergency brake is always engaed and therefore never turning on the daytime running lights?


taking the fuse out with disconnect it from the other features. also turning the light out. the break has a release button either inside the vehicle under the cover or underneath the car. you will see the cable coming through and just look for where the cable changes. it will be a big difference from outside cable to where it transfers to inside cable.

The directional signals in my car stopped working. I don't begin to know what fuse to change...can you please help me Thank you


if the signals stopped working, ( yet they light up, just don't flash) then its not a fuse you need, its a flasher unit, the flasher is a 3 prong, square unit that is located just above the emergency break pedal on the inside face of the lower dash panel. To replace this flasher you should start by removing the 2, 9/32" bolt head retaining screws holding the black access panel just above the break pedal. Lay down on your back and look up inside the dash. You may find the round hazard flasher high just above your head, this is not it. Stick you hand up along the panel in front of the emergency break pedal just behind the trunk release button. Locate with your hand a 2 inch long square relay box and move it to unhook it from it's clip. (If the flasher is the factory flasher it will have a metal clip retaining it under the dash. Your new part will not have this clip.) Route the old flasher and wire down so that it hangs from under the dash. Now you can see it and disconnect it. There are multiple connectors, but only three of them line-up and actually have metal receptors inside the socket. Take note of the removal of the flasher so you are not confused during reinstallation. I think the other connectors are for additional features not needed in the US. Take the part to the parts store or just replace with new one. Relocate the flasher safely up in the dash in relatively the same place and make sure it won't move around. return the black panel to its position above the break pedal and replace the 2, 9/32" retaining screws.

My turn signal lights come on and just stay on they dont flash...i was told this was the flasher module where is it located?


The 1994-1999 deville share the same body configuration except for cosmetic and enginge changes and this procedure works on the 1999 Deville. On my 1996 DeVille, the flasher is a 3 prong, square unit that is located just above the emergency break pedal on the inside face of the lower dash panel. To replace this flasher you should start by removing the 2, 9/32" bolt head retaining screws holding the black access panel just above the break pedal. Lay down on your back and look up inside the dash. You may find the round hazard flasher high just above your head, this is not it. Stick you hand up along the panel in front of the emergency break pedal just behind the trunk release button. Locate with your hand a 2 inch long square relay box and move it to unhook it from it's clip. (If the flasher is the factory flasher it will have a metal clip retaining it under the dash. Your new part will not have this clip.) Route the old flasher and wire down so that it hangs from under the dash. Now you can see it and disconnect it.

The left rear driverside wheel is grinding and the emergancy break won't engage when preesed. Although the brake light comes on. can you tell me what could be wrong


Hi

Is it drum brakes? if so it sounds like the brakes have came away inside, hence the gringing, they have springs to hold them in place, they often brake if a lot of pressure was put on the emergency brake, that or a cable has snapped and stuck them on. Quite confident that will be the issue.

Hope that helps

Dan

Why does the break light keep coming on on the instrument panel?


It thinks the emergency brake is on. Set your emergency brake and release it all the way and see if the problem will go away. Otherwise it could be the switch is broken or not adjusted correctly. It could also indicate your brakes need service which you will have to have a OBD computer scanner tell you what the problem is.
