My brake lights are staying on even when I unplug the brake light switch


The brake light switch is an input to the BCM - body control module , do you know about BCM'S - electronic module ?
Stop Lamps
When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts open and battery positive voltage is interrupted to the BCM. The BCM then supplies voltage to both the turn/stop lamp supply voltage circuit and trailer rear turn/stop lamp supply voltage circuits. The BCM also supplies voltage to the CHMSL though a dedicated circuit.

could have DTC'S stored in the BCM
DTC B3445 00: Stop Lamp Circuit
Circuit/System Description
The stop lamp switch is used to sense the action of the driver application of the brake pedal. The body control module (BCM) provides a low reference signal and a B+ reference voltage to the stop lamp switch. When the stop lamp switch contacts close indicating the brakes have been applied, the BCM will apply battery voltage to stop lamp relay control circuit and the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). When the stop lamp relay receives battery voltage from the BCM, the relay coil is energized and the stop lamp relay switch contacts close applying battery voltage to the STOP LAMPS fuse to illuminate the left and right stop lamps.

DTC C0277 00: Brake Pedal Position Sensor Calibration Not Learned
DTC C0297 00: Brake Applied Output Circuit
DTC C0890 00: Device Voltage Reference Output 3 Circuit Voltage Out of Range

In the event that DTC C0277, C0297, or C0890 sets as current in the body control module (BCM) is an indication of a possible internal BCM malfunction or programming error. There are no external circuits available to diagnose on this vehicle with respect to these DTCs.
Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop or the Cadillac dealer.

Why do Brake lights stay on even when vehicle is switched of and locked?


The brake lights work regardless of the ignition switch. There is normally a switch mounted under the dashboard, that presses against the brake pedal hangar. Normally, when you press the brake pedal, this switch loses contact with the hangar, and the brake lights come on. If the switch gets broken or out of adjustment, the brake lights can stay on at all times. This will eventually kill the battery. Readjust or replace the brake light switch.

Brake lights are stuck on on my 1992 buick Riviera. Draining battery. How do I fix this?


There is a brake light switch down on the brake pedal arm its like a push button switch when you press the brake pedal down the button goes in on the switch making the brake lights come on and when you release the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it sticks in the brake lights will stay on even when your foot is off the brake pedal so all you have to do is buy the brake switch and either replace it yourself or have a shop replace it and your lights should go off thus no killing of your battery.

Brake lamp came on


The Brake System Indicator normally comes on when you turn the ignition switch ON (II). It is a reminder to check the parking brake. It comes on and stays lit if you do not fully release the parking brake. If it comes on at any other time, it indicates a problem with the vehicle's brake system. In most cases, the problem is a low fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir. Press lightly on the brake pedal to see if it feels normal. If it does, check the brake fluid level the next time you stop at a service station.
However, if the brake pedal does not feel normal, you should take immediate action. Because of the brake system's dual-circuit design, a problem in one part of the system will still give you braking at two wheels. You will feel the brake pedal go down much farther before the vehicle begins to slow down, and you will have to press harder on the pedal. The distance needed to stop will be much longer.
Hope this helps you.

Brake lights stay on after car is turned off. Where is the reset switch for the brake lights if any? 99 olds intrigue


sounds like the brake switch is either shorted or mal-adjusted behind the brake pedal and not opening

Brake lights stay on


I believe this is most likely a faulty or stuck brake light switch. The lights are actuated when depressing the brake pedal thus closing the circuit in the switch usually attached to the upper end of the pedal near the hinge.

Turn signal light comes on when braking


Probably a bad grounding, causing the current to go other ways than intended i.e through other lamps. Check for corroded lamp sockets or bad ground connections in the tail light assembly, also check the lamps so they are ok.

Good luck!

Malfunctioned; unplugged, plugged back in, seems OK. Yes?


In my professional opinion, you have separate problems (if your description is accurate and haven't left anything out). # 1, the high mounted brake lamp is not part of the multi-function switch circuit (it's separate) - ONLY BRAKE LIGHTS.
#2 the other problem could very well be the multi-function switch because it controls the tail lamp relay in the Engine Compartment Junction box (under hood electrical box). When the parking lights are turned on, that high mounted 3rd brake lamp is NOT supposed to come on. It should only come on when the brake pedal is depressed. My professional experience/opinion, you either have the wrong bulb (single filament) in one of the brake lamp sockets in the rear of the vehicle, or one of those dual-filament brake lamp bulbs is shorted internally. You can verify this by pressing the brake pedal and see if the dash/cluster lights come on.

Ahhh. I see. The yellow car with the lines coming out of the back. That symbol indicates that you have a burned out tail-lamp, or a burned out brake lamp. Turn the headlamps on, and check all of the rear lights. Check to see if any are burned out, or dim. The must ALL be of the same intensity. Then, have someone press the brake pedal, and check all of the brake lamps. Don't forget to check the center brake lamp, in the lower portion of the rear window. I'm pretty sure that you are going to find a burned out bulb. Hope this helps. Please get back to me on what you find. Thanks.
