My 1994 Toyota Corolla's brake lights wouldn't go off , I didn't know what to do so I think that the battery died. What caused the brake lights to stay on? Thanks

    Locate the brake light switch down on the brake pedal lever and dis-connect the wire connector to the brake light switch and then do the brake lights go out?

Most likely, your brake light switch is sticking on. Usually this switch is located on the brake pedal arm, where the pushrod connects to the arm about four inches above the foot pedal.

Usually, there is a small spring clip that holds all this together, pull that out and pull the pushrod to the side, the switch should drop off. It has two wires attached to it, unplug those and take it to the auto parts store.

Plug the new one in, put it over the end of the pushrod and put all that back on the arm. There may be some washers on either side of it also. Put the spring clip back in, and you should be done. Test the lights to see that they work correctly.

If you don't want to attempt this yourself, it should be an inexpensive repair at the shop (maybe $50 or so).

My 2007 dodge charger didn't crank so I jumped it

A battery from 07 is still decently new to be that bad, but I would check the alternator first, just get the car running and unhook the positive cable from the battery, if the car dies the alternator is bad.

1994 toyota corolla brake lights won't turn off

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the brake switch. Your brake pedal contacts the brake switch when it is pressed down. There is a small button on the brake switch that activates the lights. It may be stuck or broke. Try to loosen the button first. If it won't, buy another one. They only cost a few dollars.

Exclamation mark light coming on intermittently

i don't think you should take a chance and drive your car like that cause your brake pedal can go to the floor causing you to have no brakes and possibly get in to an accident.if there is fluid leaking from the middle of the car,then it must be the rear brake line which runs under the car on the drivers side all the way to the back wheels.this is a metal line,so it's most likely rusted out and needs to be replaced ASAP.i replaced the one on my 93 corolla which was leaking right where you say yours is leaking from.JUST REMEMBER,REPLACE THIS LINE FIRST,THEN BLEED THE BRAKES.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE IT LIKE THAT BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE NO BRAKES AS SOON AS THE LITTLE BIT OF BRAKE FLUID THAT IS LEFT,RUNS OUT.I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS. TAKE CARE AND GOOD LUCK, MANNY
