SOURCE: With engine/car turned off rear

that's what it sounds like, if you are mechanically inclined it's usually not hard to replace a brake light switch.

Brake lights stay on and brake pedal does not come all the way back up even when car is turned off


Okay, you either have a bad Master cylinder, Brake booster or Brake pedal lever problem.

Look under the dash at the top of the brake pedal lever. See if any switches are binding, check the bolt that goes through the brake pedal lever.

If all is good, then the Master cylinder and Brake booster should be looked at.

There is one other possibility that requires a bit more work. Sometimes when a brakeline, anywhere on the car, collapses internally, it acts like a flap. This prevents the fluid from returning to the Master cylinder.

You would start by jacking up each wheel, with the trans in Neutral for the rear if a rear drive, and try to turn the individual wheel. Any wheel which drags bad is still holding hydraulic brake fluid and is why the Master cylinder is not returning to a normal position. The insides of that brakeline has collapsed.

Break lights stay on when car if off


I had this same problem. I turned off my car and the brake lights stayed on. I looked under the dash and found that the brake pedal, when not pressed, barely touched the brake light switch, which controls whether the brake lights are on or off. Initially though I just wedge a thin piece of adhesive foam between the pedal and switch, which worked fine for several months until I found the time to properly fix it. My brake light switch was adjustable so i eventually adjusted the nuts on each side of the brake switch holding it to the pedal bracket so that the brake pedal pushed in the white brake light switch when released. Hope this helps!

You have a brake light switch attached to your brake pedal,may be loose or bad.Read what it says,if bad light will stay on,easy to replace,just disconnect electrical connector,then unscrew nut,then remove,the end piece clicks on and off,I have a 85 Nissan 720 truck,have replaced mine before years ago.

2004 Accent Rear lights stay on after turning motor off and eventually drain the battery. This has occurred on my son's car and also my son-in-law's car


Is it just the Rear Window Light that stays on, or is the Rear Window Light and the brake lights located at the back/bumper of the car? If it is BOTH the Rear Window Light AND the brake lights at the rear of the car, then you likely have a faulty brake switch located at the brake pedal inside the car cabin. When the brake pedal is in the normal position, ie - you are not depressing the brake pedal, the arm of the brake pedal leading to the pedal with your foot pushes upon... this arm is applying constant pressure to the switch - with keeps your brake lights OFF. When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, it moves the brake arm away from the switch, which activates the circuit, and your brake lights turn on. If this switch is broken, your brake circuit thinks the brake pedal and arm are being pushed away from the switch, and your brake lights turn on. As you are aware, having the light on constantly can wear down your battery AND the heat from this constant light bulb of the brake light in the rear window can deform the shape of the red reflector in this rear window light housing. If, however, it is only the rear window light that stays on - then it is probably a loose or bad connection where this light plugs into the rest of the circuit in the trunk near the back seat. If this is the case, follow the wires from the rear window light assembly to the point where they plug into the rest of the circuit (inside the trunk) and unplug this wire set, clean the terminal ends, and plug them back together. ***WAIT, WAIT!!*** because you of the risk of touching the terminal ends together and blowing the circuit, if you also plan to clean the hot side, please remove the NEGATIVE battery terminal while cleaning (DO NOT USE WATER, just a wire brush or steel wool). After you are done cleaning and have the terminals reconnected, reconnect the negative battery terminal (you will also have to reset your radio stations and radio clock).

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
