THE stop light switch is either in the brake line somewhere under the bonnet or above the brake pedal
Its either a pressure or a finger switch.....

2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on


If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

Brake lights stay on


The most probable cause is a sticking brake light switch. The brake light is activated by a small switch mounted under the driver's side, up near the leg of the brake pedal. That switch is spring backed so that when you depress the pedal the shaft of the switch is let forward and turns on the brake light. That switch sometimes comes loose or half cocked in the housing and stays activated all the time until you let the brake pedal loose and the leg of the pedal depresses the switch shaft just enough to turn off the brake light. The solution is to replace the switch, at about 15 bucks at your Advance Store. or 10 bucks plus shipping on the internet. You can check when you leave the vehicle to see if the brake lights are still on. Mind you, this does not happen all the time as sometimes it is cured by the action of the brake pedal knocking the shaft back in line

Brake light stays on just happened 143000 miles


Check your brake switch as it could be faulty hence causing a close circuit which in turn causes the brake light to stay on.It is normally located at the top of the brake pedal.Hope this helps.

Brake problem


Switch on brake pedal stuck due to dust etc. Many new cars have a safety feature that allow the brake-lights to come on if the brake lever is depressed, even when the ignition is switched off.
If you can get to the switch, a good cleaning with methylated spirits and a small brush should allow it to move freely again. Good luck.

Brake and/or taillights stay on


First, check the brake light switch, and if the high level light is on, the brake light switch is the likely problem. Even if it isn't, the bulbs could be burnt out. Anyway, disconnect the wire harness from the brake light switch on the brake pedal. If the lights go out, replace the switch. To test the light switch, disconnect the wire harness from that (with the switch in the "off" position). Again, if the lights go out, this is the problem. More likely, it is the brake one. This happened on my Dodge twice.

OK, I thinking it is the brakelight switch now. Take it to a mechanic and get him to change it for you. Ask for a cole hersee brakelight switch. (better quality) this will fix the problem.
