SOURCE: 2003 ford focus replaced brake switch lights will ...

I have the same problem with my 03 Focus hatchback! Someone stoppedme yesterday to tell me that they looked like they were always on when i was driving but when i was in "Park" they worked... This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working.. It actually was not and he told me the same thing happened with his focus. He said it was a wire attached to the back brake lights that had broken. I have not yet gotten it fixed. has anyone else had this problem?

Buy a new one at a parts store, install it. Generally you will find that is is bolted to the brake pedal arm, just high enough that you cannot accidentally hit it with your foot. Cost less than 20 bucks and takes less than 20 minutes.

Parking brake light stays on. 2008 Chrysler Sebring.

the brake light will stay on for two reasons. the switch is bad so when you pull the handle the switch is not being moved like it should and since its out of adjustment it wont know the lever moved. the other reason is the sensor on the abs system thinks there is a problem with the hydraulics and keeping the light on till it problem is resolved. your problem is it could be either and figuring out which will be a problem. the switch on the ebrake handle is the easier one to check. unplugged the switch and see if the light goes out. if it does then replace the switch or adjust it so it works the correct way.

Brake lights are staying on constentily except in park

Also check the light bulbs in the 3rd brake light. If they are out (burned out or removed) the brake lights will remain on. I found this out by trial and error. I replaced the brake switch, tested voltages also and everyone told me that the 3rd brake lights should have nothing to do with it. But the do, don't know how or why, ford dealer wanted to charge me $86 for diagnositcs and $70 for complete 3rd brake assembly. Went to Napa and got bulbs for $5.00 (5 bulbs) and everything works now. Also this causes the cruse control not to work.
