Have an 88 chevy nova that when you let up off of the break the break lights still stay on and the only way to get the lights to shut off is to pull the fuse. Any suggestions?

Yes please replace the brake switch, look under the dash, you will see a switch that sits infront of the brake pedal.

88 suzuki Samari I replaced RR and LR tail lights housing. (New)blinkers work break lights work also.when I take foot off break pedal the break lights stay on and parking light and break light.Help


Their is switch the brake switch its on the brake pedal up high .
It sounds like its working because the lights work .
However it dose have an adjustment on most of them ware you can move the switch in or out so it olny makes contact when you touch the pedal with your foot .
This sounds like you need to back the contact out a little its a nut 1/2 turn should do it .
Its usely vary simple take a look at it even if you need to replace it it is an 88 its inexpensive and not hard to do .

It really depends on what you have under the hood. And how many miles it has on it, I have an 88 transam, it has 250,000 miles on it . Still will do donuts in the parking lot. everything is original. Taken care of. But it is old and tired. Rebuilding it soon. Repost with TBI,TPI , or carb..All these make a difference. besides your engine is just worn out.

I'm trying to repair the horn of a 88 chevy nova. I can't seem to get to it.


I believe it has power all the time and when the horn is pushed it grounds out and sounds the horn. Check for power then for it grounding abilitys, I have had rust in side that was not alowing it to make a good ground.

Or it could be as simple as a fuse.
