2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on

If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

I have a 1996 Nissan Quest XE and am experiencing problems with the brake lights randomly staying on. For the most part, the brake lights turn off when I let go of the brake pedal but rather frequently...

Make sure that the wires to the brake switch are not getting pinched. If you press the brake and the problem goes away, then the problem has to be centered there in the brake pedal area. The other thing you can check is to make sure that the brake pedal springs back to normal location, if the spring is broken or worn out, then the whole weight of the pedal is going to lean on the switch, turning it on eventually. The brake pedal should barely touch the switch and not rest on the switch.(some brake switches may be different and may not be push button). Either way, make sure that brake pedal is coming up all the way.

My brake light is staying on, what is the problem?

Hello Mr Mixer.

When this happens it is usually a bad brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal lever.
Easy to replace if you are a handy fellow.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Disconnect electrical connector for stop light switch.
  3. Remove bolt and lock nuts attaching brake pedal to stop light switch and push rod.
  4. Remove stop light switch and bushings from brake pedal.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.

There you are.
I hope your repair goes well.

1998 chevy S10 brake lights are staying on.Disconnected switch under brake pedal and the still stay lit.Please help.Thanks

With the switch disconnected there should be NO power at the bulb sockets. Somewhere there is a "hot" wire which is making contact with the brake light wiring. Using a multimeter start at the sockets and begin checking the hot wire for power. Look at the wiring also to see if you can locate where the wire is touching another live hot wire. With the switch disconnected the problem should be between the switch connector and the bulb sockets.

Electrical problem-"93" pathfinder

your brake light is always on because the stopper at the brake switch is destroyed that's why it doesn't turn off. just put something hard to fill the hole at the brake pedal.
