Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

The brake lights stay on all the time...even when the head lights are not on. People cannot tell when I'm about to stop. Also the "brake" light on my dash board is on. I just had new brakes put on my car about a week ago.

2000 pontiac montana Brake light and Trac off stay on


No.
The brake warning light could be telling you there is a problem with the hydraulic brake system or the parking brake.
The trac off light is saying there is a problem with the brakes or engine and the traction control system is disabled.

Stop lights stay on even when the car engine is off


underneath the dash where the steering wheel colume is you will see the top end of the brake petal, and attached in there you will see a connection that turns the brake light off when the pedal is released by pushing it in, there are rubber attachments on that button like piece that goes in and out, which turns the brake lite off and lets in come on, when the brake is pushed down. Replace them, just tell the people at the parts place what you need and they will know what it is. Good luck. Don Carroll.

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.

Brake light stays on


the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

My brake light stays on even though my ebrake is down? what is my car telling me?


Depends on car. But pretty much the same for most. The brake light can come on if the fluid is low in the master cylinder. Either from a leak or you need to change brakes. or the emergency brake switch is bad.

2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .


The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night
