Why do Brake lights stay on even when vehicle is switched of and locked?


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 light stays on all the time.....


Stop lamp switch may be sticking or broken Follow the brake pedal to where it makes contact with the switch plunger...its probably stuck in the "brakes applied" position causing brakes lights to stay on If not that, then it may be a bad ground issue at the light bulbs themselves

Brake light stays on just happened 143000 miles


Check your brake switch as it could be faulty hence causing a close circuit which in turn causes the brake light to stay on.It is normally located at the top of the brake pedal.Hope this helps.

The brake lights dont work and the hatch brake light stays on all of the time


This is just a guess , so please don't give me a bad rating. to me it sounds like the switch on the brake pedal is broken ( stuck on ) so brake lights are on , but have burned up the rear bulbs. Highmount light might be LED so runs cooler and does not burn out. Try new bulbs in the tail lights.

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.

Nissan Altima 1995 Brake Light swith staying on


I know this is outdated but for those with this problem which i had too, it is a rubber stopper that attaches to the brake pedel itself to keep the switch depressed on my car for there is 2 switches and there is 2 rubber stops attached to the brake pedal. this being gone will cause the brake lights to stay on all the time.
