The brake light sending unit under your pedal link sends a signal to the lamps to come on when you depress the pedal. Something is wrong where the pedal meets the unit. Apparently the switch works or the lights would not come on and go off, so either the switch needs to be adjusted to give you more clearance or the the brake pedal return spring is getting weak and not returning the pedal to the full upright position.

Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?


If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

Left back brake light is not on when brake. but the light bulb is on when turn on the lights at night.


It probably has a globe with dual filaments. One is for the parking light(lights that come on at night) and the other is for the brake. It is common that the brake filament breaks as it is turned on and off regularly when braking (which reduces the lights lifespan). Replacing the globe should solve your problem.

If you dont have any brake lights at all, I would assume it is not the lights themselves, but the brake light accuator on your brake pedal. It controlls when the lights come on and go off by how far the brake pedal is depressed. You can find it connected to the metal bracket that is your brake pedal,and replace it relatively cheap and easily.
