2008 Chrysler Sebring will not shift out of park


Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Check fuses and the bulbs. Is shifter fully in Park? Also try jiggling the turn signal lever.

Signal lights don't work properly when brake is applied


The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, noone ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the switch, hope this helps!

All this stuff runs thru the multi-function stalk. (the turn signal lever) It could be worn out.

My 95 toyota camry brake light stays on


Ive got a 92 Tercel. Had this same problem. Look around on the floorboard of your car. Look for a small rubber disc, or broken up pieces of the rubber disc.

If you see the pieces or whole hard rubber thing on the floor, then the rubber disc that goes at the point where the brakelight switch touches the back of the brake pedal has fallen off.

When that disc falls off the brakelight switch touches bare metal, and the switch is grounded which makes it stay on all the time.

Climb under the dash with a flashlight and look at the back of the brake pedal. Find the brakelight switch, look at the point where the switch contacts the pedal. See if the rubber disc is missing. If it
is missing find a small piece of rubber to superglue on the spot where the switch makes contact.

If the disc is there the brakelight switch is probably stuck. If its stuck you will see a gap between
the switch contact and the brake pedal. If its stuck get a replacement brakelight switch from an
auto parts store.

Brake lights remain on after ignition is turned off


My 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe's rear exterior brake lights would remain on. I did not need to replace the brake switch at this time!

Earlier that day, I'd found several pieces of broken plastic or hard rubber on the driver's side floor mat.

When I inspected the brake pedal, I saw a piece of the plastic/rubber material still hanging on to the pedal, though barely.

I realized that this was a 'stop' or bushing that contacted the shaft that is a part of the switch.

So I replaced it with a small, flat-headed bolt for the time being. I'm not sure if you can buy this plastic/rubber piece only.
