2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on


If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

My brake light on my dash is constantly on


Look beneath the dash panel at brake pedal assembly. You should see the brake light switch, which completes a circuit to brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. Its likely this switch is malfunctioning. The circuit is closed (power to brake lights) when the brake pedal is not depressed. The circuit is suppose to be open (no power to brake lights) when your foot is off the brake pedal. Unplug the wire connector and unscrew to replace this brake light switch.

As for the knocking sound, is it when the vehicle is in motion? Or even when the vehicle is stopped and idling in park?07060338-db0d-4c14-8a08-ace846c99fb4.jpg

Brake lights stay on


You problem could just be that the brake switch is out of adjustment or bad.It is located on the brake pedal under the dash.Try pulling up on the brake pedal and see if the lights go off.By pulling up I mean grab the pedal with your hand and pull towards you.The opposite of when you step on the brakes with your foot.If they still stay on you will have to go under the dash and disconnect the brake switch connector and see if the lights go off.There might be 2 switches on the pedal.One is for the cruise shut off and the other the brake switch.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I parked the car and switched off the lights engine etc. but the rear lights only remain on. How do I get them to switch off?


its hard to tell, but it sounds like maybe your brake light switch is messing up, try hitting the brakes a few times, or get under the dash and manually manipulate/ unplug the switch, this should let you know if its the switch or a more serious problem. hope this helped.

Did anyone know what wrong when every time you step on the brake the brake light come on and stay on until you turn off the car. so, I think the brake light is out but is not out. they all working. this...


You need to adjust the brake light switch (located in the pedal box (drivers foot well) ) The switch should only function after a reasonable amount of pedal travel and a slight adjustment will correct this . Good luck

I have a 2000 VW Beetle, automatic transmision. The handle is locked on park position. ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time. How can I unlock the transmision?


possibly the brake light switch above the brake pedal is faulty. The transmition lever will not move unless your foot is on the brake, if the switch that senses this action is faulty, the transmision lever will not move.

when you say ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time, do mean the lamps at the rear of the car are on or are you refering to warning lamps on the dash panal?

if you meant dash panal then check your stop lights are working, if all 3 dont work, this definately points to a faulty brake light switch.

if your stop lights are on all the time, then this also could be either a faulty switch, or the switch has been dislodged from its bracket above the brake pedal.

No brake lights


Check the brake light switch. It should be located under the dash by the arm of the brake pedal. When you push the pedal down with your foot it activates the switch. The switch can be tested with an ohm meter or multimeter. If defective, it will need to be replaced. Hope this helped and good luck.

I have a 1998 Volvo S70. The rear brake lights don't work. I have checked the fuses, changed bulbs, and checked the trees which are fine. What could it be!


You have a sensor around your brake pedal that tells your lights to come on and off!! Hint: also cause of brake lights sticking on! Try replace this sensor and you should be good to go!!

Cruise control does not work


Replace the Brake light control switch located in front of the brake peddle under the dash this also turns the cruise off when braking. While driving put your foot behind the brake peddle and pull back toward you while doing this try your cruise if it works there are three possible causes or a combination of all three. Brake control Switch, Loose or sloppy brake pedal not activating the Brake switch properly or week brake pedal return spring. Good Luck.
