Hi Anonymous, this problem is usually cause by the front brake light switch being out of alignment or the button not retracting all the way keeping your brake light on in a closed circuit, depending on your model year. 1996 and earlier models the right handlebar switch housing had to be tight up against the front brake control housing in order for the front brake light switch button to be fully compressed to stop continuity. In 1997 and later models the button was alot shorter and was more of an alignment issue in the switch housing. Rear brake light switches located in the rear brake line TEE can also fail in the closed circuit condition but extremely rare, usually they fail in an open circuit condition where the brake light is not able to activate.

Your description tells me either the rear brake light switch is bad/no functioning, or the wiring to/from it is disconnected or broken.

Get a multimeter and start chasing the wiring for the rear brake light switch, starting with the switch itself.

I just had my tires replaced now the brake light stays on all the time and my cruise control will not engage. 2009 FLHX


Brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment. Remember, applying the brakes cancels the cruise control.

Hi Hector, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection.
