Hi, this is a common problem, what you need to do is get the brake light switch replaced, now this is located at the very top of the brake pedal at the back near to where it goes through the bulk head.

If you get on your hand and knees and look close at the brake pedal keep looking at where the pedals runs from to where it goes through the bulk head into the engine bay, now at the very top of the brake pedal inside the car you will see a couple of wires going to a switch that is clipped onto the top of the brake pedals frame so look for this once you have found the wires just follow them until they go into a small plastic switch that the brake pedal operates.

Now it may have even fell off its clip and just be hanging by the wires if this is the case then re-attach it to the pedal base and it will now work, if how ever it is where it should be then the chances are your going to need to get it replaced, some of them you can adjust so if this is the case then adjust it so that when your not pressing the pedal down the switch isnt pressed in, some makes are adjustable and others are not so dont worry if yours isnt, just get it replaced they are cheap to buy and easy to replace, just remember how the old one comes off and you cant go wrong.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Many thanks for using fixya.com

Abs and brake light staying lit


First you have to plug in a OBD II reader and pull any codes. From there you can start to diagnose the problems.
Do not wait, the abs (anti-lock brake system) is important and may affect your braking.
Please let me know what you find.

The brake light and the turn signal are the same bulb. Most of the time if the bulb on the dash stays on it is because a bulb is blown and thats the way it tells you.

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.

Warning lights stay on


Hi,

Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
