Replace the brake light switch. Its located on the brake pedal arm its a little switch with a button on it that rest against the brake pedal. When the button is in (not touching the brakes) lights are off when you press the brakes the button springs out and lights come on. Easy fix.

Had to pull fuse # 23 brake switch to get the back lights to shut


If it's the brake lights, you may need to adjust your stoplight switch under the brake pedal bracket. If it's the taillights, then you will need to trace and diagnose it. Which lights are staying on and which circuit does fuse #23 operate?

Thanks,

Kevin

Simple fix... Just replace the brake light switch. It is located on the brake pedal arm about 6 inches above the pedal, it will have a plug going to it as well.

Brake Lights


Brake light not turning off it is either a contact or the brake light switch that need replacement. In your case , if brake lights go off playing with the pedal , that means that the switch must be replaced. The brake light switch it is usually located behind the pedal and gets activated when you push the brake pedal.

The rear lights won't shut off when the car is shut off.


the lights you have on are probably the brake lights. you need to check the brake light switch. it is probably stuck in the on position and that would cause the cruise to not function properly because the cruise automatically shuts off when you press the brake pedal.
hope this helps!

2003 Nissan Sentra Brake lights stay on


When you depress the brake pedal, the brake pedal will move away from the brake light switch and cause a close circuit and the brake lamps light up. There is a rubber bunk on the pedal which pushes against the brake light switch to shut it off when you release the brake pedal. Most likely this rubber bunk has either fallen off or disintegrated leaving a hole in the brake pedal so there is nothing to push against the switch to shut it off. Look up the brake pedal until you see the brake light switch, then depress the brake pedal to see if the rubber bunk is still there. It is easy to replace. Or you can use some double sided adhesive tape and a coin and stick the coin over the hole in the brake pedal.

Back brake lights do not shut off. Plenty of brake fluid. Could the calipher be stuck, not releasing once brake let off of? 1996 Toyote Corolla.


Right at the brake pedal there is a brake light switch that can stuck in the closed position keeping the brake lights on. One way to test it is by removing one of the wires to it, if the light shuts, must be replaced.
