SOURCE: brake light stays on

hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

SOURCE: 2001 Road King Classic. Brake light stays on.

you may need to check the switch that the lever presses to...it has a small wiring connection to it and you cannot miss it.Now I assume that you mean you have to push the lever back then the light goes off...If this is the case then you caliper or braking needs to be looked as the spring mechanism that brings the lever back into rest position is not working..

SOURCE: harley sportster 883 2005. Both the tail light

Not sure I understand your question.The tail light filiment goes on with lights and brake light filiment goes on when brake is applied.The extra filiment makes the tail light go brighter.If both filiments are on when lights go on then applying the brake won't change the intensity.You might have bad brake light switch causeing brake light to stay on.Have to do some checking to see if it's front or rear switch.

SOURCE: Rear brake light not workiing

There are two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing. This is front brake light switch and is a simple push button type switch actuated by the front brake lever.

The other switch is a pressure switch and it is located in a Tee usually somewhere under the bike near the rear of the transmission. Follow the metal tube coming out of the rear of the master cylinder. It will go back towards the rear brake. Somewhere in that line there will be a tee with the pressure switch in it. If you jumper across this switch, the brake light should work. If it does work when you do this but not work when you depress the rear brake signal, replace the rear brake light switch.

Good luck

Brake light switch


Hi Jake, 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. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck:

My back brake lights stay on my 2005 road king classic.


That will be either the front or rear switch sticking, first try unpluging the front brake light switch, with this disconected if the light stays on the problem is with the rear switch, locate the switch this will be close to the brake pedal normal spring opperated which can stick, check it is closing fully, you may also disconnect the switch and check the light goes out reconnect the front switch and check correct opperation, this would thenpoint the fault towards the rear switch

If neither the front brake nor the rear brake will make the light come on, I would suspect the bulb if the fuses are not blown.

Tail light


The tail light which stays 'on' , is it the brake light or the normal light. (if it is powerfulthn its brake light & if it's dimmer thn its a normal light).
Remedy:- if it's brighter thn it is probabley the brake light switch which mayhave siezed or needs adjustment.
I have a feeling it is the brake light tht is staying lit all the time.

My brake lights stay on when the pedal is not pushed


Try replacing the bulbs in the tailight assembly, they do this sometimes when they are faulty, but still working. Eventually they will burn out completely from staying on.

I have a 2003 road king that the break lights don't work when I press the breaks either on the break pedal or on the handle bars.


Check your brake selenoid, which should have a electric connection. This connection sends a signal to the brake light selenoid that the brakes are being applied there by turning the brakes lights on.
