Brake lights stay on after car is off


Under the dashboard, way up where you can't see it, is a switch that controls those brake lights.
It is made of plastic, and can break, or can fall out of it's holder.
If either of those happens, the brake lights will l stay on, because the plunger on the switch is extended, just like when you push the brake pedal.
You'll need to have the switch replaced, or the holder repaired so this does not happen again.
Brake lights staying on can (1) run the battery down, and (2) melt your red brake light covers.
Be blessed.

I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps

Brake lights stay on permanently on 97 ford escort.


the cause is the brake light switch on the backside on top of the brake pedal. it is either out off adjustment or it needs replaced. this switch activates the brake lights when pushing on brake pedal. if it gets out of adjustment or sticks the brake lights will stay on because it does not cut voltage to brake lights. have a good day !!

Brake light stays on


the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

Brake light switch replacement brake lights stay on in 1990 toyota corolla


IF YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOU HAVE REPLACED THE BRAKE SWITCH AND NOW THE BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON THEN THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU DID NOT SCREW THE BRAKE SWITCH IN FAR ENOUGH.IT HAS A BUTTON ON THE TIP OF THE SWITCH AND IF THAT BUTTON DOES NOT REST ON THE BRAKE PEDAL,YOUR BRAKE LIGHTS WILL STAY ON.WHEN YOU PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL THE BUTTON POPS OUT OF THE SWITCH WHICH MAKES THE LIGHTS TURN ON.WHEN YOU RELEASE THE BRAKE PEDAL,IT GOES BACK UP AND PUSHES THE BUTTON BACK IN WHICH MAKES THE LIGHTS GO OFF.ALSO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR ELECTIRCAL PLUG IS CONNECTED SECURELY AND ALL THE WAY PLUGGED IN.I HOPE THIS INFO HELPS, TAKE CARE AND GOOD LUCK, MANNY

Brake lights come on and stay on when started.Recently replaced left brake light bulb


It sounds like the brake switch on the brake pedal arm is stuck its like a push button type switch when you press the brake pedal down it pushes the button in on the switch which makes the brake lights come on,when you take your foot off the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it doesn't the brake lights will stay on.

Is it the brake light or the tail light? Does it go out when you pull back on the brake pedal?
