Question about 1994 Nissan Altima

3 Answers

94 altima brake lights won't go off draining the battery. I disconnected the wire to the brake light switch on the pedal and the brake lights stay on. I unplugged each rear tail light assembly and the third brake light stays on. The only way to get it to go off is to pull the fuse. Any suggestions?

    I actually found the problem. There is a small plastic or rubber piece that came out of the brake pedal which depresses the brake light switch when the brake pedal is released. I took the one out of what I think is the cruise release switch and put it in the brake light switch position and all is well.....

Check your break pedal.. I had the same problem. It wasn't the switch, it was the part of the pedal itself that presses the switch.

I encountered the same problem. I noticed on the driver side floor that there were a couple of small broken pieces of black plastic. The pieces of plastic crumbled off and are spacers that sit o the brake pedal lever. The make contact with the brake light switch as well as one that makes contact with a switch that activates the release on the automatic transmission. I fabricated to small rubber grommets to the same thickness and glued them to the same location and the problem was solved. I accessed this by removing the lower fascia/plastic body component to gain better access to the area. In all the fix took about ten minutes. Good luck.

Brakelights won't go off on my 1998 Escort


Your brake lights stay on due to a small rubber pad about the side of a nickel, which is supposed to be stuck in a small hole about 6 inches above your brake pedal, way up where you have to stick your head under the dashboard to see it, with a flash light. if you look up there & you can see that it is missing, you need a new one from the dealer. if the rubber pad is intact, then the switch that it touches (plunger-type switch) is bad. That is the brake light activation switch. Usually it's the rubber plug that has disintegrated.

Brake lights stay on all the time . Checked brake pedal switch and it closes and opens as per reading on ohm metter, brake lights continue to stay on even when I short out brake switch connector.


This is the diagram. If you disconnect the switch, do they stay on? If so, you have another circuit feeding it (i.e. new radio or alarm installed maybe?)

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

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

BRAKE LIGHTS


It sounds like the brake light switch is stuck or broken.
If you look up under the dash, towards the top of the pedals, you'll see a switch that operates the brake lights, there should be 2 wires connected to it. unplug that switch, and see if the brake lights go out. If they do, replace the switch (I give it a 90% chance). If not, you could have a short somewhere in the electrical system.
Check the brake light switch first, and go from there.

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off


hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

Nissan Altima 1995 Brake Light swith staying on


I know this is outdated but for those with this problem which i had too, it is a rubber stopper that attaches to the brake pedel itself to keep the switch depressed on my car for there is 2 switches and there is 2 rubber stops attached to the brake pedal. this being gone will cause the brake lights to stay on all the time.
