Question about 1991 Chevrolet Lumina

The brake lights won't go out. I pulled the fuse so the battery doesn't go dead, but can't figure out why they are staying lit.

On your brake pedal there is a switch that controls your brake lights over time it comes to lose just enough for the switch won't come in contact with the pedal

I have a 2001 honda civic. while shut off and parked, the brake lights were shining bright.


I would check the brake light switch and see if it needs adjusted to make the lights go off when the pedal is not depressed. You figure that anytime you have lights lit when the engine is not running is using power out of the battery that is not being replaced and will eventually cause the battery to go dead.

if you are having radio issues where you have to mess with the fuse to make it work i would say it is the culprit for the battery draw, a lot of radios trigger the eject when power is reconnected for the memory wire, that is not a problem with the radio.
try unplugging the radio and see if that fixes the battery draw.

Not sure, but I've heard a bad hazard switch can cause strange problems.
Also, if your truck has a body control module that controls interior and lights, that may be your problem, too. Good luck.

I had a similar problem with a Ford Ranger. check the Main harness bulkhead connection at the firewall for looseness and corrosion. Then check the backside of the fuse block for loose connections at the affected fuse positions. The brake light switch needs to be adjusted at the pedal to affect brake light staying off when you take your foot off the pedal. This circuit is hot regardless of key switch position. Brake light switch adjustment done incorrectly can kill the battery.

Where are the fuses located on a 1994 Honda Civic? My brake lights won't turn off.


I don't have a fuse diagram, but you may want to try pulling the connector off the stoplight switch above the brake pedal. If that doesn't turn the lights off, your relay is shorted and must be replaced. If the lights go out, check the switch to see if the button is springing out or just replace it. Cost is $20 or less at autozone.
