There should be a micro-switch that works when the emergency brake is applied, it should be located by/near the brake. Hope this helped Tim

Should my 2012 chrysler 200 convertible have running lights during the day time. I am thinking that they use to and now they dont work


Is your parking brake on.
to turn off your daytime running lights on your island you put your mergency break on check to see if your emergency brake switch is bad or your emergency brake is on.

Adjust emergency brake lever to get brake light to stay off


? If the brake light is on, check your break fluid level first & top it off. If not, check your break lights - one could be out. Last - it's likely your pads are worn down & need new breaks. Have it checked.

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?


The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

My axel bearing was replaced last week now my emergency parking break light will not go off and my breaks are hard as a rock i can push and push very hard and the pedal barly moves and the kia barely slows...


I suspect your problem has nothing to do with the rear bearings, it sound most likely that your vacume pipe to your booster is off or maybe sucking air, near the bottle where you top up the brake fluid there is a big black/gold round thing (Booster) up against the car out of this there is a pipe usually about as thick as your thumb that goes to the intake manifold. You should be able to see where it belongs to go if it has come off.

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

Brake lights wont turn off


dont worry all you need to do is just change the 2 sensors found onlong top side of the break peddle. it be cheaper if you could get it from the junkyard from even a mecury contour or mystic, both cars have all the same parts as the cougar , try it i did.

Convertable top wont go down..I hear motor running


Your top motor is in the trunk on the drivers side wall behind the panel. Remove the two screws to remove the cover. Check the fluid level in the reservor. Check that no lines have come off of the pump and have someone pushing the top down button while checking. If this is not the problem, then it is a possibility that the e-brake connection is not working right.
