Brakes lights are not effected by ignition.
I believe on that car they are operated by a switch on the pedal.
If not, then a switch on the master cylinder.

Why do Brake lights stay on even when vehicle is switched of and locked?


The brake lights work regardless of the ignition switch. There is normally a switch mounted under the dashboard, that presses against the brake pedal hangar. Normally, when you press the brake pedal, this switch loses contact with the hangar, and the brake lights come on. If the switch gets broken or out of adjustment, the brake lights can stay on at all times. This will eventually kill the battery. Readjust or replace the brake light switch.

New ignition switch, new starter, still wont crank. relays ok.


It sounds like the safety switch located on the top of your Brake pedal is broken or knocked out of place. This switch sends a signal when the brake pedal is pressed and often shows up by you having no Brake lights when the pedal is pressed and verifies a malfunction.

There are several coordinated alignments as the gearshift release is also part of the system. The brake pedal switch is a common problem.

Brake lights wont go even with the ignition off


Hello Sandra, the most common problem with this issue is the brake light switch is stuck on. if you wiggle the brake pedal or pull up on it they may go off. Usually the switch needs to be replaced. Brake lights do not need ignition power to operate so it will kill the vehicle battery and engine will not start. be safe

I have a 1996 honda accord The tail lights wont go out. the brake lights work fine but i have to diconnect the battery when i turn the car off.


Probably stuck contact in light switch. Try turning on and off quickly a few times to loosen up (hopefully) the switch. If no help, then I would wiggle the wires, (gently) where they plug into switch. Even if this does not indicate the problem, I would replace the switch as it is the easiest, cheapest, and most probable problem spot.

Brake lights stay on when you turn off ignition , until you diconnect the battery terminal


Your brake light switch is broken or jammed in the on position. Most automotive brake lights work whether the car is turned on or off. Grab a flash light , move the driver seat all the way back , and follow the brake pedal up to the switch. It is possible it has just moved out of position and just needs to be bolted back down(check this first).
If you have a hydraulic switch it may be attached to the master cylinder. In this case it will be easier to replace(you will not have to go under the dash on your back). Simply unplug the wires , unscrew the switch , quickly change and screw the other switch in to the hole trying not to introduce air into the system or you may have to bleed it.
