    is your parking brake on a little ? how is the brake fluid level in the master cylinder ?

    Only when it's parked, or all the time?

    If it's on all the time, your brake switch behind the brake pedal arm is probably to blame. If it's only on when the transmission is in "P", then, well, you have a short circuit somewhere and an automotive electrical expert will have to track it down.

Your brake light switch is located under the dash. It is attached to your brake pedal linkage. These switches sometime fail.

2005 Chevy Avalanche - The truck is in park, shut off, and the keys out. The brake lights are staying on. What do I need to do to get them to turn off?


There should be a brake light switch under the drivers side mounted on the brake pedal it may have broke or come out of adjustment in any case you could push the switch in by hand and tape it as to not drain your battery until you can get a replacement part for it if indeed it needs to be replaced otherwise it may just need to be adjusted.

How hard is it to replace the splash shields on the rear brakes on a 2005 Avalanche 1500 ? This is the shield that the emergency brakes are bolted to. It looks like you have to pull the axels.


Hi, this is not a terrible job, but you are correct, the axles need to be removed, After this, you remove the park brake shoe, cable, and hardware.Unbolt the shield, swap over park brake stuff, and reassemble. Not extremely har, but is a b it time consuming. Good luck...Coop
