There is a switch under the dash at the top of the brake pedal. This switch is bad. It is kinda tough to get to. But if you just follow the brake pedal up under the dash you will find the switch.

I hope this helps you! If so please click YES!! Thanks!

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...

Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

Astrostart won't start the car

You may need to reset the system.

1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

My 2003 yukon xl is cutting off in the middle of the street, it seems like the battery won't stay charge, the ac only works on defrost and it blows very low. after replacing the brakes the abs lights...

if you think its a alternator not charging battery properly heres the specs. when vehicle is off, at battery there should be at least 12.6 volts, when it is running, at battery there should be at least 14.2-14.7 as for the low fan speed. there is not enough of volts to run it properly. if abs light is on, its most likely a bad speed sensor or a broken or bad wire to the sensor. go to auto-zone and tell them you need to scan for a bad abs sensor, they will do this for free of cost. good-day !

I tried messing with the light switches in my car to cut the yellow lights and brake lights off. No matter what they will not cut off. I hit my keyless entry earlier to unlock the doors and Im thinking...

the thermostat will need to be changed. The light problem may be solved if you first get the code for your car stereo and then disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery for 30 seconds. This should reset the keyless entry system. It will also cause anti-theft stereos to shut down until the proper code is entered. Some car stereos have an anti-theft system where you must enter a code to get the stereo to work again after a loss of power. The code is usually in the paperwork you received when you purchased the car. It may be written down in the owner's manual. But have the code ready before you disconnect the battery.

The Alarm keeps going off , previous owner cut the horn wires so that part doesnt work but the lights just randomly start blinking and going on and off and cant cut it off. remote key chain is no longer...

The day time running light module on the back side of the front drivers fender likely needs to be replaced to fix your problem.Unplug it and the lights will work normally from the headlight switch but the day time running lights won,t work and also the high beam indicator light in the dash won,t come on when you switch to high beam but all the lights will work properly.You should replace the drl module as soon as you can but unplugging it will at least keep you from having to remove a battery cable.

Why does my car cuts off when i hit the battery is radio does not work and i have no blown fuses.but when my car shuts of and i get a jump my cars back and running and as soon as i hit the...

I would have the alternator checked,if the battery is going down,then the car will die when the bake is applied because of vacuum lose during deceleration,and no charging system .Replace the alternator,and charge the battery up with a 2amp charge over night.

My husband turned off our Chevy Trailblazer without putting it in gear and now it won''t start and the gear shift is lock up. What do you do to fix it????

first make sure battery isn't dead because if he cut it off in gear then the switch couldn't cut the power off and it'll run the battery down and there is a electrical solenoid that allows the shifter to move if theres no voltage than the shifter want go into park and the ignition switch want turn off.

Battery light and brake light come on for no apparent reason. Aren't on after the car sits awhile.

Your problem will be in your alternator, the brake light and charge light coming on at the same time is almost Daihatsu code for the alternator brushes are failing.. Easiest way to determine this is when the two lights come on, leave the car running and pop the hood (don't forget to put the car in park or out of gear with handbrake on) then find yourself a solid bar or stick and give the alternator (rear of engine bay) a solid but not hard tap. If your alternator brushes are failing you will hear the alternator kick in and see your brake/battery lights go out. Don't drive around too much with the two warning lights lit up because you are running on the battery only and your ignition system could cut out at any time when the battery gets too low.

When i brake my car cuts off a red volts light pops up after it cuts off

I need you to break it down more specifically. When does the BATT. light come on? Does the engine run smooth the whole time up to shut-down? Are the brake lights working properly? How many miles on the car? How are you with maintenance (oil changes, tune-ups)?
