Put fuse back in & look under the dash on the drivers side.Half way up the brack peddle arm is a brake switch. see if it is adjusted properly. readjust and lights should go on & off as usual.

Go under the drivers side dash panel and follow the brake pedal,there you will see a switch that goes on and off when you aply the barakes,if the switch seems ok and the wires are pluged in,your switch is no good,you can replace this your self.

2002 Astro brake lights stuck on


Chevy has a different circuit for the brake-lights. Strange that the brake-lights don't go out, after the fuse and/or relay is removed. Unplug the brake-light switch. Are the brake-lights out now? The brake-light circuit travels through the turn signal switch. There could be a failure inside the turn signal switch or there could be a short in the circuit, causing the brake-lights to stay on. You can try removing fuses that have to do with protecting the turn signal and hazard flasher circuit. If this allows the brake lights to go out then I think you will have narrowed it down. What other tests have you run? Have you removed and inspected the lighting in the rear? Do you have a trailer hitch? I ask because in some applications, there can be a 12volt power source. If the power wire shorts against the brake-light wire, you can have this fault. Please let me know if this helps and feel free to write back with any questions. Be as detailed as you can. You are the eyes and ears of this subject, good luck.

Replaced fuse for horn/brake lights. horn will work but brake light stays on so i removed fuse..How do i get lights to stay off when fuse is installed?


look at the brake pedal there is a switch connected to it with a plunger to turn on the brake lights the stopper for the switch probably has fallen out you will need to stick a new one in.It is a very cheep easy fix.

I have 98 toyota corolla ce and the headlights stay on everytime i turn the engine on...my question is how can i turn them off in the daytime???


In Canada it's mandatory to have DRL(Daytime Running Lights). Your Corolla probably has this feature built in. it is a safety thing however I can understand you wanting them off if it's not the law where you live.
In our 1998 Corolla, I use the parking brake all the time - every time I park - and I've noticed the lights do not come on until I release the parking brake after starting the motor. When I park the car, until I shut off the engine, the lights stay on regardless of the parking brake status however, if I shut off the engine and restart with the parking brake on, the lights do not come on.
If you "adjust' the parking brake switch(i.e.: make e-brake light in your dash it stay on all the time) your lights will not go on until you turn them on via the multifunction lever(left side of wheel). This of course negates the benefits of the e-brake light working correctly (warning you that your e-brake is on or that your brake fluid level is low) which in itself is not so safe!
There is a fuse/relay (I think) in the big fusebox under the hood that has a DRL "spot", you might want to check if you can remove it and still turn the lights on manually when you want them on. Alternately, there is a fuse in the interior fuse box(in Canadian models anyway) labelled DRL. When that fuse is out, it seems the lights only turn ob when I turn them on manually.
Hope this helps and God bless,
Gilbert

My tailights wont shut off. i replaced tailights, checked fuses, checked fusable links and they still wont shut off. i was told to check the brake switch but i dont know what im looking for other than its...

You can push in on the switch with the door open to get a feel for how it works. Push it in and your dome light turns off. The same thing happens with your brake light switch. When you push on your brake peddle it is the same as your truck door being opened. When the brake peddle, is in its home position as in no pressure on the peddle pad, the arm of the brake peddle pushes the button in which, breaks the circuit to the brake lights.

The switch could be bad. It is easy to spot the switch look at the arm of the brake peddle and see if you can see a bracket that holds the switch against the brake peddle arm. Use a flashlight.

You might be able to tell if the switch is bad by only removing one of the wires and see if your brake light goes out. If your brake lights go out with one wire removed, the switch most likely is bad.

I have also seen where a driver caught there shoe string or shoe on or under side of the peddle and when they pull there foot up they bend the bracket that holds the brake light switch. By bending the bracket they move the switch away from the peddle arm and the switch no longer gets pushed in enough to break the circuit.

A bent bracket can be an easy fix just bend the bracket back to its original position. Please be very careful the bracket can be sharp. In addition, the bracket can crack, to help prevent this let your truck heat up inside if the A/C has been on etc.

You can take all of the wires off the switch and remove it. Take the switch to your local auto parts store they should have one and will be glad to test your existing one.

If there are more then two wires draw your self a diagram, tag the wires with masking tape, and number them. Please be aware that you could blow a fuse if you touch the wire ends to any metal parts of your truck.

If you do not already have fuses in your glove box, you should pick up some while you are at the auto parts store. Please put the fuses in your glove box. I run into many people who say yes I have fuses, at home in there garage! I do not know about everyone else but my truck never breaks down in my garage. I think it is scared of all the tools around it. LOL.

I hope this helps.

Take care and stay safe

Thank you

My brake light stays on after I turn off my 02 liberty. I have to pump the brake pedal and ussually works but lately it comes back on later draining my battery. I've used bungies to hold up the brake pedal...


The brake light switch is sticking look under the dash follow the brake pedal arm up and look for the switch you may be able to get away with spraying some electrical contact cleaner on the switch working the pedal down and up as you spray if this fails to work the switch should be replaced. Remove the plug and wire connection and the screws and adjustment nut that hold the switch in and make note of where the switch was located in relation to the brake pedal contact point, you must have the switch location adjusted in the right point of contact with the pedal for the new one to work right, when installing the new one keep adjusting its location until the desired effect is attained.

If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!
