We have a Nissan maxima 1998, we have had mechanics fix out tail and brake lights 4 times...still a month later with the same issue. The lights stay on,and only the middle brake works when you press it...


Check the earth wire from the body to the battery or to the motor to the battery. It appears that an earth is not working so the current is seeking a return through other lights hence they stop working.

I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps

Stop light on the back stays on


Go under the dash and replace the brake light switch, it is above the brake pedal arm and is actuated by the brake pedal arm when you press the brake.

I have a 2003 Ford with 2 issues. First, the airbag light blinks for a while, then just stays on. Here is the sequence of blinks: 4,6,4,6,4,6,4,6,4,6, then stays on. My next issue is when I go to stop at a...


The first problem with the Airbag is telling you there is a problem in the system. This maybe something as simple as someone bumped your bumper while it was parked and it triggered the Airbag system or a Faulty Sensor. The second problem is that you need a brake job and most likely a new Caliper.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.
