Why my break lights won't go off?


Are you talking about the lights themselves, or the brake indicator on the dash for the parking/emergency brake? If it's the latter, the mechanism underneath is probably rusted up to the point the sprint doesn't have enough grunt to fully retract the cable after you release the parking brake. Otherwise, check the switch for the brake lights down my the brake pedal.

What causes the dash brake indicator to stay on?


First of all, the abs problem... NO do not start there, start with checking your brake fluid.. thats the number one cause for that light and no other lights on your dash to be on... if that is your problem fill it up and address the brake leak... brake fluid doesnt evaporate and your car doesnt use it up. if its low its going some where best way to do this is park on a clean surface or slide cardboard under your car pump your brakes 10 times and then examine the cardboard or move the car and look for wet spots that wernt there before or you could also have a friend lay on the ground a few feet back and look for drips while your pressing the brake pedal careful not to get any brake fluid in the eye it burns like no other... if you find a leak have it fixed if you dont it might still be a internal leak into the power brake booster and you should have someone look at it NORMALLY when you have a ABS problem with you car BOTH THE ABS LIGHT AND BRAKE LIGHT will be on not just one but the other awnsers could be correct too the brake indicator light does come on when the emergancy or parking brake is enabled try pulling the release and pull up on the parking brake pedal at the same time.. or if its a center parking brake push it all the way down with the button pushed

When I start the car brake light on the dashboard is on.my foot is not on the brake pedal.the brake lights on the back of the car are not on.when I drive around the light is still on.


That break light usually means the parking break is on. Check to make sure that is released all the way. Even one click on will turn on the light.

Hi I have trouble in the battery of my 2001 toyota vitz,the problem is when ever I connect the battery the rear break light glows and never goes off even if I start the engine and start driving and also...


No there is a brake switch to turn on the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. It is located near the rake pedal under the dash. It has more then likely failed.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

04 Corolla "BRAKE" light on dash--comes on occasionally??


I wouldn't drive it... when your brake light comes on, it means there's a serious fault with your brakes. They may not engage when you brake and there won't be any further warning other than the brake light

Break light....


There's a switch on your emergency brake that the indicator (on your dashlight) operates from. Sometimes it slips in its bracket and gets out of adjustment causing your dash light to stay on. Its located on the upper part of your emergency brake pedal. Hope this works for you. Goodluck.
