The brake lights work regardless of the ignition switch. There is normally a switch mounted under the dashboard, that presses against the brake pedal hangar. Normally, when you press the brake pedal, this switch loses contact with the hangar, and the brake lights come on. If the switch gets broken or out of adjustment, the brake lights can stay on at all times. This will eventually kill the battery. Readjust or replace the brake light switch.

Check this: Sometimes the small rubber stopper that pushes the switch will wear out and fall out causing the switch to indicate on.

Switch is located under the dash and is either on the brake pedal or inline with the brakepedal... either has a clip or is screwed in...

There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

Why do the brake lights stay on even when vehicle is switched off?


brake light switch is faulty. It is under dash near the brake pedal. They can sometimes come loose or just fail. Sometimes a small rubber grommet is misaligned or broken off.

You can "fix" the brake light problem by taking your vehicle to a competent mechanic for diagnosis and repair.

See if the rubber gaskets are at the top of the brake pedal. If you see two wholes, then they are not there. You might have to go to the dealler for those parts. I used a carriage bolt on the brake switch side for now with ducktape.

My brake lights won't turn off. even when vehicle


Sounds like either your brake pedal switch has somehow gotten misaligned or gone bad. Look at the top of the brake pedal and find the switch. When you push in on the brake pedal the upper part of the pedal should contact a movable button on the switch and move it either in or out (depending on which side of the pedal the switch is on). If you can see the switch contact being moved, and the lights still stay on, it sounds like the switch itself is bad.

the brake light switch is located on the lever that the brake pedal is attached to, near the top. U will need to pull the under dash hush panel off to get at it.
