There are 2 brake light switches one on the front brake master cylinder and one connected to the foot brake lever.
First Check your rear brake light switch adjustment loosen it until the light goes off, if not unplug the wires to that switch if it goes off replace it if it is bad,if its still on go to the front master cylinder unplug it if the light goes off replace the front brake light switch.

Break lights stay on when car if off


I had this same problem. I turned off my car and the brake lights stayed on. I looked under the dash and found that the brake pedal, when not pressed, barely touched the brake light switch, which controls whether the brake lights are on or off. Initially though I just wedge a thin piece of adhesive foam between the pedal and switch, which worked fine for several months until I found the time to properly fix it. My brake light switch was adjustable so i eventually adjusted the nuts on each side of the brake switch holding it to the pedal bracket so that the brake pedal pushed in the white brake light switch when released. Hope this helps!

I have a 1988 c1500 chevy truck and my break lights stop working and notice the stop light fuse was missing just bought truck back from previous owner but when I replace the fuse the break light stays on...


The brake light switch on these trucks was a poor design. Its mounted on the brake pedal. Look under there and bend the bracket that holds the brake light switch slightly and things will start working again. When these were new we used to just grab the brake pedal and pull it toward the drivers seat really hard and let go. This fixed your problem 99% of the time.

What would make the break lights on the outside stay on the whole time you are driving? Emergency break isnt on. 99 mercury cougar


Your brake switch is probably stuck. It is located under the dash in the cab, above the pedals. It is a chrome looking cylinder. It has a button on the end of it, when you push the break in, it releases the button. It is probably stuck.

Brake light stays on


There is a switch in your right-hand switch housing which is activated when your front brake lever is depressed.  If this breaks, your brake light will stay on.  To check this, you'll need to take apart your switch housing.  The two screws are a torx 25 and the two holding your master cylinder on are a torx 27.  The switch is right behind the brake lever.  If this is the problem, you'll have to buy a new switch and sodder it in.
