2007 Cadillac SRX rear tail light stays illuminated after taking foot off brake, also comes on and off, flicker, without brakes depressed.


your brake switch needs adjustment, located down under dash on brake bracket, when the brake is depressed it lets the switch out, and when the brake is not depressed the switch is in. adjust the switch by screwing it closer to the pedal so it gets depressed more, usually 2 turns will do it

2002 Taurus - brake lights won't turn off when car is shut off.


Usually this is caused by a broken or faulty brake switch. They are usually located above the brake pedal, inside the car. Look at the pedal from inside the car. Push the pedal down and watch it. Look for a switch that should extend a plunger when the pedal is pushed down. The plunger is supposed to go back into the switch when the pedal returns to it's normal position. This is what lets the brake lights know the pedal has been depressed. In most of the cases I have seen the plunger breaks or it gets cocked sideways and stays out or the switch holder itself breaks and the switch moves instead of the plunger. Then the brake lights think that the pedal is being pushed down even when it's not. Start there.
The only other time I have seen this is when someone used the wrong type of light bulbs in the brake lights.

The brake light in my Golf stays on until I pull on the pedal.


It sounds like it is time for a new brake light switch, It is located just under the top of the brake pedal. Not that difficult to change.

Good Luck, and I hope this helps.

Brake lights stay on


I believe this is most likely a faulty or stuck brake light switch. The lights are actuated when depressing the brake pedal thus closing the circuit in the switch usually attached to the upper end of the pedal near the hinge.

1991 Honda Accord Brake Lights Stay on


Hi,
Usually there is a spring loaded switch that is activated by the brake pedal arm (under the dash). It registers on the pedal arm and when the pedal is depressed the switch is activated, causing your brake lights to illuminate.
The switch may have been bumped out of position. Hopefully this is a quick and easy fix for you...
Good luck!

Shift gear is stuck on park and can't get it out of gear.


Hi there,

There are multiple things that must all happen in order for the shifter to move from park.

1. Make sure the key ignition switch is in the "Run" position (the position just before the "start" position).

2. Brake pedal is depressed (usually pushed in a couple of inches or more at least to release the button on the shifter).

3. Push in the button on the shifter and pull back (you may need to push the shifter slightly forward or back a little for the button to move freely).

If the button on the shifter still doesn't push in freely, there is a problem with the mechanical lock-out linkage or electronic switch that releases the button lock. Check under the dash area along the brake pedal arm for anything that doesn't look correct.

4. If the car is on an incline/slope/hill, it will put a lot of pressure on the parking pin in the transmission. Usually a strong tug or pull on the shifter will pull it out while you're pushing on the brake pedal to prevent rolling when it releases. Make sure to set the parking/emergency brake first to prevent this next time .

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Brake light switch


not positive on this model, but most cars have the same style set up for the brake lights, as you depress the brake pedal, it moves away from the switch causing the circuit to close and light the brake lights. hope this helps

the brake switch may be failing, causing the gears to stay in a locked position making it hard to shift into park
