SOURCE: Brake lights won't go off

learned to trouble shoot this in school, it might be that your lights and or switch are backwards, that was usually the case we discovered to be the culprit, and be sure you have the right bulbs and not some random generic compatible with these model cars, those bulbs will not be compatible with the current going thru them, if this does not help, you might want to try to reinstall the original components to back track your work, unfortunetlly electronics on cars is very time consuming as we learned in class.....hope this works or helps

SOURCE: 2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

hi from uk the part you mention is the brake stop light switch it has a plug on 2xwire plug it operates by as pedal is pressed the plunger of switch moves out and connects the 2xwire circuit and so brake lights operate this switch simply unscrews from the pedal box/carriage after plug removed then the new switch screwed in place and with b/pedal off the switch is screwed to a point that if you press pedal down approx 1/2 " the switch plunger moves out and b/lights come on this is trial/error untill you are happy with the pedal movement down till lights operate SIMPLE ! hope this helps?

SOURCE: Rear brake lights stay on

Yes you can! The brake light switch is readily available from the dealer and I have had to replace several of those on that model Hyundai. I have however found that they are mounted a couple diffrent ways. On 1 style you have to turn the switch 1/4 turn counter clockwise and it just pops right out.Unplug the switch then. Installing it is as easy as putting it in the hole only far enough until the little button in the center of the switch is flush with the end of the switch. you will see it getting depressed by he brake pedal arm as you push it in. turn it clockwise to lock it in.
On the 2nd style there is a metal "u" shaped clip the retains it into the bracket. a 90 degree pick is sometimes useful to remove the clip. once removed then simply slide the switch out and unplug it. Reinstall the switch and once again only pushing it in until the button in the center is depressed and reinstall the clip. Dont forget to reinstall the plug into the switch. The hardest part of the whole operation is getting under the dash on your back (not easy for me but I am 6'3" tall). Sometimes a buck or stool that is aproximately the same height as the floor of the vehicle is very helpful in sustaining the position.
******Remember to tell the Dealer if you have cruise controll or not and bring the COMPLETE vin # of the vehicle with you to ensure you get the correct part for your model.****************
Good luck! Scott

Hyundai accent 2004 shifter is locked and brake lights do not work

Automatic transmission, right? Likely cause is the brake pedal switch located on the brake pedal arm near the firewall. This switch controls an interlock solenoid, a safety feature, that will not allow the shifter to move unless the brake pedal is depressed. Another possibility is the brake relay located on the under-hood fuse panel. Good luck.

Stepping on brake makes orange front lights come on and dims certain dashlights.

may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.

My brake lights don't work. I've changed the bulbs & checked the fuse. any ideas?

You could check the brakelight switch located on the brake pedal linkage. Sometimes they move out of adjustment, sometimes they fail. The ones I've seen are usually plastic and the threads strip off so the jamb nut won't hold the switch in place correctly. It should be round (or at least the part with the mounting nut should be round) with a plug with 2 or 3 wires going into the back and located so that the brake pedal lever moves away from the switch when you push on the pedal. If you deem that it needs to be replaced the switch should be available at most auto parts stores.

Brake lights stay on

The most probable cause is a sticking brake light switch. The brake light is activated by a small switch mounted under the driver's side, up near the leg of the brake pedal. That switch is spring backed so that when you depress the pedal the shaft of the switch is let forward and turns on the brake light. That switch sometimes comes loose or half cocked in the housing and stays activated all the time until you let the brake pedal loose and the leg of the pedal depresses the switch shaft just enough to turn off the brake light. The solution is to replace the switch, at about 15 bucks at your Advance Store. or 10 bucks plus shipping on the internet. You can check when you leave the vehicle to see if the brake lights are still on. Mind you, this does not happen all the time as sometimes it is cured by the action of the brake pedal knocking the shaft back in line

Took it to Autozone because of check engine light and they said it had to do with a brake switch on the brake pedal or something like that.

Your Brake Light Switch is located on the upper brake pedal arm located under the drivers side dash, when use you the brakes and the pedal is depressed it activates the Brake Light Switch which in turn sends a electrical signal to the brake light bulbs. That is how your brake lights turn on. It is very easy to replace if you buy the part yourself, just locate the switch under the dash and remove and replace.

The rear brake lights on my 2001 Hyundai Elantra won't turn off

I assure that there is a brake lamp switch on your brake pedal, try feeling all the way up the pedal shaft, if you still dont find it, i suggest you buy the haynes repair manual for that vehicle, it will tell you exactly where it is.
