Two possibilities. One is a leak, inspect all 4 wheels completely, and then inspect ALL brake lines and hoses. If all is okay, replace the master cylinder. Pre bleed the m/c.

Melts away? if you are meaning the braking power gets weak with a hard braking or under any pressure then you need to first check your brake fluid levels and then check for any leaks. if there are no leaks check your brake booster for faults. this can be done at an auto repair shop. or if you feel brave with a chiltons manual and the booster from an auto parts store

My brake lights are staying on and drained my battery!!!! could it be a fuse??

the fact that you have lights means your fuse is good-lights all the time means your brake switch (located above the brake petal) is hung up or stuck. You need to get down low enough to see it, under the dash and immediately above the brake petal-as you push the petal with your hand, you will see it attached to the brake linkage-for some reason, it is always 'closed' which causes the lights to stay on, even with the key off (safety reasons, this circuit is always hot). you should be able to 'unstick' it by manipulating it, or you can spray a light coating of wd40 on the assembly to sree it up. Worst case, you will need to replace it, the usually run under $20.

My brake light won't turn off even if my foot

Your brake switch is just hung up. it is located directly above the brake petal and is attached to the petal bracket-use a flashlight and get down low enough to see up under the dash where your brake petal is, it will be hooked onto the petal bracket-just move it, it is probably just mis-aligned.

The brake light is on.

your brake light switch is probably 'hung up'-look above the brake petal for the switch, it is activated by pressure on the petal-check it's location, it probably just needs to be moved a bit and was probably disturbed while driving.

New Mastercylinder/brakes still lose pressure

ITS THE MASTER CYLINDER AGAIN.More than likely they are using a re manufactured master cylinders. Get a new one from MOPAR-(CHRYSLER) that will take care of your problem. Trust me I have had the same problem with a similar vehicle in the past in my shop. Good Luck, thank for using FIX YA

Reverse lights not working

When you press the brake petal it activates a switch located under your dash. Just follow your brake petal up until you see something that compresses when you apply the brakes. It is possible that the switch is not lined up or needs to be replaced.
