Mcdevito75 here, After you installed new brake light swith did you adjust to make sure it"s contacting the brake mechanism, also check for power at the switches plug. Check also your brake light bulbs.

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

Emergency brake will not engage left blinker will not blink just stays on


It sounds like you back brake shoes may be worn out, which could cause the emergency brake to not engage. The left blinker socket may need to be replace, or your blinker switch under the dashboard in the fuse panel that may need replaced.

Break light on


check to see if the brake light switch under the dash is still mounted in it's holder..if it is not the brake lights will stay on....if you are talking about the brake light on the dash then I would check to see if the emergency brake is engaged or if the switch on the emergency brake assembly is bad

2000 VW Jetta E-Brake Light indicator beeps when brake is off


I fixed mine!! First check your ebrake switch by starting your vw and putting the ebrake on. If your daytime running lights stay on when the ebrake is engaged, its NOT the switch. Stay with me here. Turn vw off and pull fuse number 5. Mine was blown, but the legend only shows a pic of a book with an exclamation point. Meaning the book will tell you what it is, BUT IT DOESN'T . I replaced the 7.5 amp fuse and voila, victory. If it is not number 5, pull every fuse one at a time and inspect them closely. Do not assume, check each one. That is how I found mine after I bought and replaced the $10 switch. Running lights stay on because the switch is not being acknowledged, not because it is bad. I searched every forum I could find on this and there were no answers to this problem anywhere. So I am posting so there is an answer out there. What put me on the right track was the running lights staying on when the ebrake was engaged after I put in the new switch.
