Hi, this is a common problem what you need to do is get on the floor by the foot pedals and look closely at the brake pedal then follow the brake pedal right to the top of the pedal then just before it goes through the bulk head into the engine you will see a switch atatched to the base of the brake pedal it will have 2 or 3 wires going to it now you may find the brake switch has come away from the pedal if so place it back where it should be no if the brake switch is still atatched then the chances are the switch has wore causing the gap between the switch and the pedal to be to big now you need to either replace the switch or build up the part on the brake pedal that presses the switch with something like sellotape to make the gap smaller so the switch is pressed when you press the brake pedal now this wont be a permanent fix but will get your brake lights working again.

The switch itself is not expensive so your best option would be to replace the brake light switch.

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

Abs light on as well as brack light on the das

brake pads are the ONLY way to stop you going like 30mph+ when you hit like a wall or person or like another road user & if you do crash YOU will be totally at fault for having an unfit car. The best way to get the lights on your dash to go out is to fit new pads. The lights show that the time when the brakes WILL fail is drawing very near, it is stilll up to you to get the pads changed. You will not get any further warnings from your car prior to not being able to stop at all thus causing endangerment. You will be shocked at just how bad they were when you feel the new pads.
