I don't know what sensor you're talking about unless you're talking about the pressure switch underneath the bike.

Loosen the bolts that hold your front master cylinder on to the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar throttle and switch assembly as possible. This should extinguish your brake light.

If not, your front brake light switch could be bad and need replacing. The switch is located inside the right handlebar switch housing and must be soldered in. Take the two bolts that hold the switch housing halves together out and carefully seperate the halves. The brake light switch is the small switch towards the front brake master cylinder with two wires on it. Unsolder the two wires, remove the small screw that holds the switch in, install the new switch and solder the wires onto it. Reassemble the switch housing.

Good luck

Brake lights stay on on 07 caliber. I have replaced switch.

I would say you have a problem with your anti lock brake system WSS sensors issue ABS . Or vss sensor
You see if the abs has a sensor problem and you don't fix it for a long time the bulb burns out then the brake light comes on as a back up for the system .
Try replacing the amber bulb in the instrument cluster panel; for the abs look at what happens This is not a simple problem .

Why does the and and brake light stay on at random.

Are you talking about the brake light on the dash or the rear brake lights?
If the dash light is on try cleaning the level sensor in the reservoir. other reason for this could be the pressure distribution valve or sensor.
if it is the back light pull on the pedal to see if they go off, if so replace the switch under the pedal.
Good luck.

No sensor involved , brake lamp switch probably needs to be adjusted ,maybe . Learning to test is the way to a fix ,.not by i was told it could be a sensor . Brake lights stay on Not saying that this is your problem but look under dash at the switch .Check the switch an pedal arm .

Brake light and abs light stays on after i replaced the the brake booster had to remove master cylinder to do so aftervreplacing booster brakes are fine but the aqbs and brake light stay on

sounds like the brake fluid level sensor maybe stuck . it is in the master cylinder reservoir. if you open the cap you will see a float in there. push on it and tap the side of reservoir and it will float back up. let me know if you have any more question. good luck

The parking brake light for my 2002 pontiac grand prix comes on and off at will. I applied the parking brake and release it stays on and the goes off and comes back on its confusing to me

Make sure you have the proper amount of break fluid in the resivor. the next time it comes on, pop the hood and unplug the connector that is going to the brake master cylinder, see if it goes out.
Report back if the light stays on. If it goes out then the fluid level sensor is bad. You can replace just the sensor, you do not need to replace the whole resivor.

Bmw 320d e46 2001 orange brake wornin light stay on replaced brake pads and installed new sensor in front back sensor looks ok

the way to reset the brake light is to turn the key to "on" without turning the car on. Let it sit there for 15-30 seconds and the light should go off by itself. If not, double check how you have the sensors hooked up.

2004 Mini CooperS- brake service light stays on

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights
