Firstly check the switch that controls the brake lights. It is located on the brake pedal assembly. Have someone watch your brake lights while you pull on the brake pedal backwards and then push if forwards slightly. If the lights go out you need to adjust the switch. There is usually two lock nuts on the switch enabling it to be positioned correctly. If the adjustment required is very small you might get away with bending the mounting bracket by hand if for some reason it has been pushed out of position. If the pedal pushing thing does-nt show anything check the switch is working using a multimeter. If you don't have a multimeter you could make a little circuit using two wires, a battery and a globe to test the switch.

Tail lights stay on while car is off and brake lights do not work,turning signals do work also, it is a 95 geo prizm


Try to refer to the owners manual. If not, go to the fuse box and see if anything is wired wrong. If you don't know, go to the car dealership and they will test the car and give you a report.

Have a problem with my air bag light staying on while driving, can I disconnect the light and how?


The airbag system has a fault and is shut off by the control module. You must get it tested with a scan tool to find out what the code is for the problem it has developed that turned on the light.

Yes, it could be. Or you can check your battery. And try adding brake fluid to your master cylinder. That sometimes will cause the brake light to come on. Or check your emergency brake. Hope this helps, James Booth.

My ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism


Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.
