Sounds like the switch is working, as you are getting the lights to go on and off, so I would say it's your adjustment.

Brake lights stay on, 2002 Honda Accord EX 4 cylinder


The brake lights work regardless of the ignition switch. There is normally a switch mounted under the dashboard, that presses against the brake pedal hangar. Normally, when you press the brake pedal, this switch loses contact with the hangar, and the brake lights come on. If the switch gets broken or out of adjustment, the brake lights can stay on at all times. This will eventually kill the battery. Readjust or replace the brake light switch.

Brake lights won't work replaced the fuse and the bulbs still nothing what can it be?


Find the brake light switch up under the drivers side of the dash. It will be mounted on a bracket near the brake pedal lever. Make sure one wire has power to it all the time. Make sure one of the other wires has power when the brake pedal is depressed. If no wires have power when depressed the switch is bad. If the wires have power than you probably have a bad turn signal switch. I can probably get you specific wire colors if you need them. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Brake lights are not working mercedes c200 classic


The brake switch is located on the brake pedal, under the dash. they can go bad, come loose, and need readjusted. All it is , is a push button type switch, and they can be readjusted. they are usually held on with a cotter pin and easy to replace and adjust. Not knowiing what year you have, newer models run the brake lights thru the turn signal switch after the brake switch. this too can be bad. Try the brake switch first. Let me know(unless that fixes it) And we can go from there.

My tail lights are on in my 1989 chevy beretta but the car is switch off an it want crank.


Likely your brake light switch has gone bad and the battery has been run down by the lights being on. the switch is above the pedal. Change the switch and re-charge your battery.
