This problem is caused by a defective and or out of adjusment brake light switch, if u look under the dash in front of steering wheel near the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached top/on u will see a switch, it is very easy to change, a 10 min job, below find a picture part number and the price of the switch for a typical Pathfinder, this is a 1996, but all model years are similar, u domn't say year of yours. U may want to check the adjustment of the switch 1st, it is a button type of switch, the little push button contacts the brake pedal arm and is depressed when the brake is not being used, when you use the brake the little button comes out and that turns the brake lights on, make the button is fully depressed when the brake is off, if it isn't turn the threaded switch shaft until the light goes off and lock it down with the nut on it, recheck it several times to make sure the problem is fixed, if the lights stay on replace the switch, it is cheap.

My brake lamp light keeps coming on as soon as i start my car and step on the brake the light comes and stays on i've checked all the rear lights and they all work


will be due to lack of pressure more than lack of fluid, try bleeding the brakes, the light should go away unless you have a split in one of your brake lines or your master cylinder is leaking

My brake, slip and VDC indicators stay on.


Check brake fluid level, add fluid from sealed container if needed.

Also check for leaking rear axle seals. Look for oil on the inside of rear wheels.

The brake fliud resorvoir may have a sensor on it that is at fault. Also if the brake pads are getting very tin the light will stay on for the brake fluid is low if not filled. Fill the fluid up and see if the light goes off. The sensor if equipt will have two wires for a conection

Location of the emergency rear brake switch n a


Hello. I assume that you want to know the location of the switch that activates the brake light on the dash when the park brake lever is pulled. It is under the rear of the park brake handle; you need to remove the console to see it.

However...if your brake light in your dash is staying ON, I would first suggest that you look at the level of brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir. If it is low, the light will come on, also. The fluid level in the master cylinder drops proportionally as the brake wear. I would bet that your fluid is low; about an ounce of fluid decrease will light up the brake light.

My brake light and a light that looks like a car with //\ at the bottom are on. brake fluid is fine and all rear lights are working


Your brake light is on because your brake fluid is probably low in the brake master cylinder. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionally. A switch in the brake master cyluinder measures the fluid level.

The //\\ light indicates you have a burnt out tail or brake lamp. All of the rear lamps are checked by a sensor, including the one in the rear window.

In some cases the brake light will come on when the rear brake pads are getting worn down to low, check them if they appear to be lacking of enough brake material replace the rear shoes to make the light go out and restore adequate rear brake traction.

97 Altima dashboard brake light stays on


Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!
