1994 Saab 900 has a ghost?

I'm sure that this has happend to someone out there: my brake lights will 1) stay on after I've released the brake pedal and, 2) will turn on randomly when the car is off and the key is in my pocket! I take the fuse out when I'm not driving the car but what's up with this??

I was doing a brake job on a '97 900. When the pedal was pushed to the floor, the plastic shielding under the dash prevented the pedal from returning completly. Light stayed on. I put the shielding back in place, the pedal returned and the lights went out.

There's a little switch attached to your brake pedal, (In my old 9000 it was about halfway up above the pedal itself, haven't had that problem with my 9-3.... yet;) that can get gummed up and stick, making intermittent contact and also holding the lights on without pressure.

I just got up in there and cleaned it out really well with some WD-40. That seemed to exorcise the evil brake spirits pretty decently.

95 Saab 900S brake lights stopped working also have an issue getting the transmission out of park

Most likely the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal has failed
Your HAZARD / Tail fuse has blown.

Underneath the dash at the top of the brake pedal locate the brake light switch. Remove the connector / wires on the back of the switch and then jumper across the 2 pins to make the brake lights come on. Start the car with the brake on and try shifting the car out of park.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Why does my brake light come on and stay on?

Make sure the brake light switch is not defective, is adjusted correctly and is tight. It is under the dash and the brake pedal arm pushes it to the off position when you release the brake

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.
