Many cars have a switch that rests on the arm for the brake peddle that self adjusts. If something gets stuck between the switch and the peddle it can adjust the switch too far way from the peddle arm. When the object that got in the way falls out or is removed the switch will no longer contact the peddle arm and the brake lights will stay on. You would probably need to remove the panel cover for the bottom of the dashboard to access the brake peddle are and brake light switch. Once you see the switch depress the peddle with your hand and push the switch toward the peddle are. It shouldn't be too hard to push back into place and will probably make a series of clicks as it moves. Once the switch has been pushed in release the brake peddle and the switch will adjust itself back to where it should be.

Brake lights stay on after car is off


Under the dashboard, way up where you can't see it, is a switch that controls those brake lights.
It is made of plastic, and can break, or can fall out of it's holder.
If either of those happens, the brake lights will l stay on, because the plunger on the switch is extended, just like when you push the brake pedal.
You'll need to have the switch replaced, or the holder repaired so this does not happen again.
Brake lights staying on can (1) run the battery down, and (2) melt your red brake light covers.
Be blessed.

Brake light and abs light is on


Red lite comes on at startup to ck. system. If amber lite stays on, ck. brake fluid level and see if emergency brake is partly up. This shows problem with anti lock system if it stays on, not main brake system. If all is ok with this but still stays on Have ABS system checked. Haynes repair manual, 95-2003 Windstar, all models.

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

I have a 1992 Toyota corolla for about a day the brake and battery lights stayed on while driving and then I stopped at a red light and it died. When I go to start it nothing happens


when brake lights stayed on surely you have a brake light switch faulty.- It is above Brake Lights Pedal.
If you have battery light on either the alternator belt is off or the alternator is faulty does not charging.

The light in the dashboard is staying red for the brakes. Ihave checked the brake , they are released so why is the brake light staying red olease


Because the brake pads have sensors on and when they wear down too far, they activate the brake warning light. Time for new brake pads!

My ABS light and emergency brake light comes on everytime I start my Ford Windstar, and they stay on when I'm driving around, even though my brakes are not on. Anyone have any idea what this means?


I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).
