I havea 2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt and the battery and brake light will not go off. The battery is brand new and brake fluid is full. What could it be?

Bad recharge tension,must see with voltmeter by battery,mostlikely bad alternator bridge/brushes.Rare:alternator belt slip,can be asociated with motor over heating (because of the water pump shared belt).Brake light must track the problem,can be stucked float on the pump oil cap,worn brake pads (if it have the sensor,easily identify by wire near the pads),bad hand brake switch.

Brake light came on put new pads on brake light wont turn off how do i get it to turn off

Change your brake switch. The brake switch is right there at your brake pedal. They get stuck sometimes. That is your problem. It is a switch with a wire and a plastic plunger in it. It moves back and forth when you press and release your brakes. It does not cost much. Maybe $10.00.

Metal on metal noise when driving. Sounds like brake noise when brake pads are in need of replacement. Sound goes away when the brake is applied. Car only has 20,000 miles on it (2006).

Hello tgiro7: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The fact the noise goes away when stepping on the brake pedal says the problem most likely is in the brake area. The pads could be worn out even at 20,000 miles.If the noise sounds like it comes from the front remove the wheels and check the front pads. If the pads are bad most likely the rotors are also bad.Same would apply if the noise emits from the rear. When you have the wheels off check to make sure the calipers will slide in and out on the mount pins. Should they be stuck on binding the pads will wear excessively and prematurely fail. The calipers must move freely on the pins. If you drive with your left foot on the brake pedal? The amount of pressure required to apply the brakes and not stop the vehicle is 1 to 2 pounds of pressure. Wont turn on the brake lights but will put pressure on the calipers. This in turn will wear out the brake pads. Another thing to look at would be an out of adjustment brake switch. Reach down and grab hold of the brake pedal. Give a firm tug on the pedal. Should you feel the pedal give and hear a click or two the switch was set to deep and holding the brakes on.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

My 2006 chrysler 300 is stuck in park after starting and putting my foot on the brake it still will not move out of park. The car turns on but will not let me shift into any other Gear. help !!

There's most likely a problem with the shift interlock system. To get you where you need to go you may over ride the system by placing the key in the on position, remove the liner of the cubby bin to the right of the shifter. This should gently pry out. There should be a button or an opening apparent now. While depressing this button you should be able to shift out of park.

Newer vehicles use electric solenoids to lock the shifter in park until the ignition is on and brake pedal depressed. If there is a fault in the brake switch, shift interlock solenoid, pcm or associated wiring you'll experience what you've described. The first thing to check is to see if your brake lights work. If they don't work then you know the brake pedal switch is likely the culprit and to focus you're attention at that part. The switch is mounted on the brake pedal usually above the pad. Look for physical damage, damage to wires etc. If they do work, it may still be the switch as some have more then one leg of the switch. One part of the switch may work while the other doesn't.

I have a 2000 Chevy S10 ZR2 i just replaced the back brakes on it they are disk brakes. The one side i replaced the rotor and the other side i replaced the rotor and caliper. The side i replaced the rotor...

The squeaking may be coming from the brake pad vibrating. Try applying a brake silencer to the back of the brake pad. It may come in the form of a thin metal shim, to a teflon like material. Also, double check to make sure that the brake caliper has no air trapped in it.

Brake light stays on fluid levels ok and pads ok its accualy a 2000 tacoma but the light came on and off before for about 2 weeks now it just stays on.

Check the brake light switch, the button on it may be stuck in.
It's under the dash, near the top and back side of the brake pedal.

Looks like pressing on brake lights all the time

Look under the dash. From the brake pedal pad follow the lever that the foot pad connects to. You will see an electrical switch with a push button. Try to push on the button and have an assistant see if the brake lights go off. If it does, the switch is ok. If the push button sticks into a hole on the pedal lever, your brake switch rubber stopper is missing. Its a small rubber button about the size of a dime. ( You may notice broken pieces on your drivers carpet) Get a new one from your Honda dealer and stick it in the hole, It should contact the brake switch button and turn off the brake light.

Brake light comes on

As long as brake pads are GOOD. This vehicle needs brake Fluid. Check float in master cylinder and make sure that it floats and not stuck to the bottom of fluid make sure wire connector is connected to master cylinder. Good Luck contact me if you need more help

Gear shifter is stuck in park and is hard to push button in

Have the brake lights checked to verify they work, if they are not working the system will stay locked in park, most likely the problem is a degfective brake light switch.

My E Brake light is staying on.....

I would guess that maybe the button on the e-brake sensor is stuck pushed in and therefore indicating that it is engaged. The e-brake sensor is by the e-brake and has a little button on the switch that when pushed in turns off the e-brake light, but when the e-brake is lifted the button is popped out from the switch, and therefore enabling the e-brake light to appear. So what may have happened is that the button somehow stuck open and therefore is giving the reading that the e-brake is engaged. That's all i can think of whithout looking at it...hope this helps, good luck
