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.

Brakelights won't go off on my 1998 Escort

Your brake lights stay on due to a small rubber pad about the side of a nickel, which is supposed to be stuck in a small hole about 6 inches above your brake pedal, way up where you have to stick your head under the dashboard to see it, with a flash light. if you look up there & you can see that it is missing, you need a new one from the dealer. if the rubber pad is intact, then the switch that it touches (plunger-type switch) is bad. That is the brake light activation switch. Usually it's the rubber plug that has disintegrated.

I changed the battery in my 2001 toyota forerunner and not a few lights on the dash continue to flash., Any answers?

Try disconnecting both poles of the battery and leave it off during the night. Reconnect it. If problem persists you probably need to use a OBD2 diagostics tool/resetter.

Battery drains

This is a very difficult task.

One way to narrow the possibilities is to connect and ammeter between the battery ground cable and the battery (disconnect the ground cable first).

Start pulling fuses until the current draw goes to zero. That will tell you which electrical subsystem is causing the drain.

Then you start probing that subsystem. A good possibility is a stuck relay.

It's not a short unless it's a resistive short. A short would have already taken care of the drain problem by blowing a fuse or burning up something.

Airbag light stays on 2005 jeep liberty

It probably will cost a few bucks to get the code reset, but you don't need to go to the dealership, most shops with a good scanner equipped for air bag code reading will be able to diagnose and reset the light. The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed... But, just for fun, before doing all this, i'd disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to an hour and reconnect it back, some systems do effectively reset themselves this way.

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off

hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck
