Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
Hi,if you open your trunk and look around the frame that doors closes onto you will find a small push in switch.. they are like the ones on a fridge door. sometimes the switch will get pushed through the hole and wont be able to be depressed. it sounds like yours is half way down the hole so the trunk is just touching it not pressing it . as for when you brake this could be putting a small amount of pressure on the boot enabling it to push the switch right down. if the switch is sitting ok then spray the 2 wires leading to it and the switch itself with a good oil as it is not doing its job right...hope this helps

SOURCE: door ajar indicator stays on
you may just need to adjust your door jams they may not be closing properly, the other thing you can try is opening one door at a time and putting your finger on the switch usually in the lower l/h corner of b piller and see if the light goes off if not this may be the problem and replace the switch

SOURCE: trunk open light on dashboard
Well I took it to a trusted mechanic and unfortunately for me it was not the switch in the trunk. The switch for the accent trunk light is built into the trunk latch which would be easy to fix, but I knew that because of the light going off when you press the brake it had to be a short somewhere, which it did turn out to be. Too bad we couldn't actually find the short, it is probably something rubbing on a gound somewhere. I actually just took the bulb out of the dash behind the trunk open indicator so it wouldn't drain my battery.

randyref: The most common problem with the Nissan's when it came to brake lights staying on, was a little plastic stopper button
which is located up near the top of the brake pedal arm.
If you follow the brake pedal arm up, you will find the brake light switch. If you push the pedal down, feel where the brake light switch is suppose to contact the pedal frame.
You will probably discover that there is a hole there instead of something that the switch was to come in contact with so it could be compressed which in turn, opened the circuit causing the brake lights to go out.
The part is available from Nissan and usually is stocked because it is a common problem. I stock 3-4 in my shop and I'm not a dealer.
The part it self is a round semi soft clear plastic disc with a small button which you push through the hole in the pedal frame, where it snaps in place.
I'm willing to bet that this will solve your problem. Check it and get back to me.
