If the switch itself is not faulty you probably have a short somewhere in the wiring harness.That could be hundres of places so I am not sure after that... Sorry

Brake light stays on my 63 tbird


Try disconnecting a wire from the brake light switch and if the light goes out the problem is with the adjustment of the switch or it could be a faulty switch. If it is an hydraulic switch there is no adjustment.

1998 chevy S10 brake lights are staying on.Disconnected switch under brake pedal and the still stay lit.Please help.Thanks


With the switch disconnected there should be NO power at the bulb sockets. Somewhere there is a "hot" wire which is making contact with the brake light wiring. Using a multimeter start at the sockets and begin checking the hot wire for power. Look at the wiring also to see if you can locate where the wire is touching another live hot wire. With the switch disconnected the problem should be between the switch connector and the bulb sockets.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe brake light switch wont stay in position and the brake lights stay on. I replaced the switch and had the same problem.


Brake Light Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disable the SIR system (if equipped).
  3. Remove the clip (R/V Series) or unclip the switch (C/K Series) and unplug the electrical connector from the brake light switch.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

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

Brake and/or taillights stay on


First, check the brake light switch, and if the high level light is on, the brake light switch is the likely problem. Even if it isn't, the bulbs could be burnt out. Anyway, disconnect the wire harness from the brake light switch on the brake pedal. If the lights go out, replace the switch. To test the light switch, disconnect the wire harness from that (with the switch in the "off" position). Again, if the lights go out, this is the problem. More likely, it is the brake one. This happened on my Dodge twice.
