ANSWER (ONE THAT REALLY WORKS) Turn the key to the "ON" position. NEXT Find your head light switch (Knob) NEXT Pull it "ONE" click out and push it back in. Do it three times. You then hear a little DING, DING, DING sound and the switch is resetted. NO MORE WARNING LIGHT DISPLAYED. You we…ll come!!!! P.S: When pulling the light switch be sure to pull it out just one click to the parking light mode. If you pull it out two clicks to the headlight mode the system will not reset. P.P.S. If you want to reset your CHANGE OIL WARNING LIGHT turn key to on position, not start. Then press the gas pedal down 3 times. AWFULLY COCKY FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN'T SPELL WELCOME the best way to do this is to consult your owners manual that come with the car and follow the instructions within. (MORE)
%REPLIES%\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \nThe only way to turn it off is to correct the problem turning it on, once corrected it will turn off by itself. It being on shows that there is a current problem and that no air bags will deploy in the event of an accident until the light is off\n. \n Answ…er \n. \nThere is a "clockspring" in the steering column that is probably broken. When the clockspring breaks, the airbag light comes on. The "clockspring" takes the place of the old slip rings and spring loaded contacts used in older cars to transfer circuits from the steering wheel to the stationary column making the airbag, horn and speed control operational. To replace involves removing the airbag. Take it to the dealer.\n. \n Answer \n. \nThere was a recall on many 2000 Impala's concerning the air bag system. The light on our Impala would turn on & off intermittently before we took it in. The dealer will be able to do a VIN search to see if your vehicle has had the service performed or not. (MORE)
\nThe 2000 and up Impala's have a feature called RAP or Retained Accessory Power. This allows you to operate your radio and windows without the key or car being on for 10 min after you shut off the engine opening the doors will shut off the RAP and you will need to turn on the car again to roll up w…indows and such. \n Answer \n. \n. \nI don't know what the cause of it is but we had that happen one day about 3 months ago. Prior to it not shutting off we got "garbled" reception from the radio..then when we parked the vehicle and started to exit the radio didn't shut off. We found the fuse (in the fuse box on the passenger side) and pulled the fuse and put it back in. We havn't had a problem since.\n. \nDoesn't help you with the "why" questions but may help others from a dead battery.\n. \nKaren (MORE)
depends what vehicle it is on on a ford there is a switch on the chassis rails on the right side . this needs to be reset after brakes are repaired. if it does not reset it needs to be replaced depending on year and model the new swtich mahe have to be rewired to accomadate the new switch instructio…ns for this come with the new switch it is not a big deal (MORE)
Answer . This information is inyour owner's manual. The radio is used to reset this. If you do not have an owner's manaul, get one. A salvage yard is a good source, or the dealer will order you one.. Answer . \nthere are two knobs on the left of the impala radio\n. \nwith the car off and the… key in the acc position\n. \nhold down bottom knob until menu appears\n. \nscroll through menu with seek buttons and see options with 1 and 2 \n. \nto make a change or reset a sensor (tire-monitor) hold down same knob \n. \nmake sure that your tire pressure is correct for all your tires before reseting..

Answer . \nWhat light?. Answer . Headlights / Parking lights can only be turned off while in park. turn the engine off, set the parking brake. Start the engine..... as soon as you remove the parking brake the lights will come back on
Answer . open trunk & you'll notice about 6-8 torx screws. on the top of the light section. remove these screws, and tilt the housing towards you. then you should see 3 electrical conections. some have locks like a "medicine bottle top".\ntwist & pull out connection. the bulb should be there. the…re is 2 stop & tail light bulbs, and 1 park light bulb, and the reverse light too. now is a good time to check them all since you are there. some tail lights are square and some are long, but the same procedure applies. ( some have hold downs for the light section added in the trunk to hold assembely also.) to remove these fastners it is necessary to pull back carpet by the trunk lock, and you will see them. if it dosent come out the first way you must remove these as well.\nreverse to install. hope this helps.

Answer . I have had several Nissans in the past.\nOn at least 2 of them, I had the same issue.\nWhat it turned out to be was:\nOn the brake pedal shaft, there is a small hole where a small plastic piece should be located.\nThis plastic piece pushes on a small plunger that turns the break lights o…n and off.\nWith all the temperature changes, this plastic piece can crack and fall out.\nNow, the plunger just sticks thorough the hole.\nI put a bolt/lock nut through the hole....\nIssue fixed.... Answer . Stoplights are usually turned on by a switch mounted above the brake pedal. When the pedal is fully released, it presses on the switch and it breaks the circuit. When you press the pedal, it releases the switch and the circuit completes, turning on the lights. Most likely cause of this is that the switch is either broken or misaligned. Adjust the switch to be depressed when the pedal is up. If the lights turn off, you're done. If this does not fix it, unplug the switch from the wiring harness. If this makes the lights go off, your switch is broken, buy a new one. If it does not, you have a short circuit in the wiring. You will need to trace the harness, find the damage and repair it by splicing or replacing the harness. (MORE)
Your turn signal lights are not working but makes a buzzing noise when engaged the light comes on on the panel and on the vehicle but no flashing you have a 2000 Chevy Impala?
ADDED: I would suspect that the flasher unit might be faulty. It's that little 'can-like' looking thing that gives the 'ticking' sound when the bulb blinks. Good luck. We have had the same problem on a 2000 Chevy impala. We have replaced the hazzard switch. That did not help. We are clueless too. x…xlilachickxx@AOL.com (MORE)
Both are reset through the radio. *** Note: to reset the "Change Engine Oil" lite, press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times in 5 seconds (vehicle in ON position, but without starting engine). I just did this to my vehicle and it works. . As far as the tire pressure, inflate tires to 32 PSI. Should… work.. To reset the tire pressure indicater on models without the RDS radio, check your tires to be sure of proper inflation. Then pull the headlight switch to the running lights position 3 times (on, off, on, off, on). You will here a beep when the sensors have been reset. The sensors on the tires will trigger if there is a 7 lbs pressure difference between the highest and lowest tires. (MORE)
What is wrong on a 96 Chevy pickup when brake lights stay on when driving but when you push on the brakes the lights come off?
Answer . \nI would first check your brake light switch which is attached to your brake pedal under the dash. Since you can turn off the lights by pushing the pedal it is possible the switch is bad. They are around $10.00.I hope this helps you. Mark
Answer . \nchange your oil. Answer . I had this problem a month ago and brought it to a shop for an oil change. While the oil change actually worked at reseting the "Change oil" indicator, the mechanic said something to the effect of pumping the brake (or maybe he said the accelerator) 5 time…s quickly will reset the light to off. I'm assuming this is with the car running and in park.\n. \nHe also said to turn off a low tire pressure indicator, you can toggle the headlights on/off several times quickly and that'll reset the tire pressure light.\n. \nI'm not completely confident about these tidbits, but it's worth a try.

What will cause the brake lights on a 1991 Chevrolet pickup to stay on after the vehicle is turned off?
Answer . The brake light switch is under the dash, and whenever the brake pedal is touched the brake light comes on. If the switch has failed or is out of adjustment it will leave the brake light on.
Answer Check door switches Check headlight switch this model works in opposite direction than most--twist counter-clock wise to shut off If you have really strange things happing with your interior lights its probably your body control module. Example interior lights coming on when they shouldn't …or going off when they shouldn't (MORE)
Why is it when your 2002 Chevy S-10 LS Brake lights stay on after the vehicle and lights are turned off?
Answer . Perhaps a faulty brake light switch (located under the dash, next to the brake pedal) or else there's a short someplace that is allowing current to bypass that switch.
Approximatly how much does it cost to repair a turn signal switch on a 1997 Chevy Lumina when the center brake light comes on but the two main ones remain off?
Answer . This more than likely has nothing to do with the turn signal switch. Check the bulbs, fuse, and look for loose wiring.. Actually, I had a similar problem on my 97 Lumina and it was the turn signal switch. I'm getting it repaired tomorrow so I'm not sure what it costs yet.
When the brakelite switch fails it fails to on. Replace the brakelite switch. Located under the dash on the brake pedal arm. You will see a push switch that is released when the brake is pressed. Just replace that switch.
Read the owners manual. Turn the key to the on position (not start) with the radio off. Wait 10 seconds. Press the "display" button on the radio and hold for 10 to 12 seconds. the radio display will light up . PRESS "display" and "1" to select functions. display i think is enter . read owners MANUAL…. It's really simple. Turn the key on but not to start the engine. Make sure the radio is off and hit the "display" button for a couple of seconds, the big knob on the bottom on the left of your radio until the "settings" display shows. Hit the scan button to the right until "Tire pressure" comes up. Hit # 1 on your radio select buttons until it says "reset". Push the "display" button until you hear a "beep". Press the scan button a couple of times until it says "exit" then press "display". After it "beeps" you're all done. If you had an owners manual why would you ask for help. (MORE)
2001 Impalla runing lights . \nUnless you unplug them I don't think you can. It's so we can see you coming, as if a 3,400 lb. car was hard to see.
Your service traction system light ABS light Traff off light keep coming on and at the same time there is resistance when you press the brakes you have a 2006 Chevy impala What could this be?
Have the two front wiring harnesses to the hub bearings replaced. This fixed the problem on my 2001 impala ls.
Answer . The starter motor requires a great deal more of electrical current than do ordinary light bulbs. The lights working is not always an accurate measure of the battery condition.
Reverse lights come on when using the brakes brake lights come onwork fine. third brake light works too. reverse lights come on when braking and they blink on and off when turn signals are used.?
You have a bad ground. The sockets the bulbs go into have a reliabilty problem where theground disconects inside. If more than one light is doing this then the ground wire is notcontacting the body or frame any more. Rather than crawl under thecar for two hours trying to find the faulty conection …I usuallymake another ground point myself. (MORE)
Delayed Headlamps The delayed headlamps feature provides a period of exterior lighting as you leave the area around your vehicle. The feature is activated when the headlamps are on due to the automatic headlamps control feature described previously in this section, and when the ignition… is turned off. Your headlamps will then remain on until the exterior lamps control is moved to the parking lamps position or until either a 30 second or 60 second lighting period has ended. If you turn off the ignition with the headlamps switch in the parking lamps or headlamps position, the delayed headlamps cycle will not occur. To disable the delayed headlamps feature or change the time of delay, see Vehicle Customization Settings on page 3-91. Programmable Modes To reset or customize the features, first enter the vehicle customization main menu. To enter the main menu, do the following: 1. Turn the ignition to ACC or ON. The radio must be off. 2. Press and hold the TUNE or DISP knob on the radio for at least five seconds until SETTINGS is displayed. 3. Press the SEEK or PSCAN up or down arrows to scroll through each available feature on your main menu. 4. Press the PREV or NEXT buttons to scroll through the lower menu. An asterisk (*) will appear next to the item that is the current setting. The following information shows how to reset or customize features after entering the main menu. LT DELAY (Delayed Headlamp Illumination) This feature allows the headlamps and parking lamps to stay on for a set amount of time after you exit the vehicle, or to turn off immediately. Programmable Modes Mode 1: OFF Mode 2: 30 SEC Mode 3: 60 SEC Your vehicle was originally programmed to Mode 2. The mode may have been changed since then. To determine the current mode, or to change the mode, do the following: 1. Scroll, using the SEEK/PSCAN up or down arrows, until LT DELAY appears on the display. 2. Press the PREV or NEXT button to enter the submenu. The current selection will have an asterisk (*) next to it. If you do not wish to change the current mode, you can either exit the programming mode by following the directions later in this section or program the next feature available on your vehicle. 3. Scroll, using the PREV or NEXT buttons, through the modes to change the current mode. 4. With your preference displayed, press the TUNE/DISP button to select. A chime will be heard to verify the new setting. The new selection will be displayed with an asterisk (*) for one second. The mode you selected is now set. You can either exit the programming mode by following the instructions later in this section or program the next feature available on your vehicle. (MORE)
The parking brake makes this light come on when it is set, Also the regular hydrolic brakes turn it on when they need maintenance. Could just be low on fluid, But If so then it is likely that the brakes are worn down as well.
Follow the brake pedal up behind the dash. The pedal arm ususally operates a button that turns on the lights when the pedal is pushed. The button could be stuck.
If it is the message center telling you to check the oil; look in the owner's manual and there are steps on how to turn it off through the radio. For most impala 2000 and up... turn key ignition to ON but do not start the car. pump gas pedal 3 times fast. then turn car off. now start the car. ligh…t should clear. hopefully you've changed the oil first though.

These two systems both use the same sensor. Thus causing them to both come on at the same time when there is a fault in the system. Take it to a garage and have them scan your car and see why they are coming on.
Most blinker circuits do not flash if one bulb is burned out. If the bulbs are all OK then the flasher is probably bad.
power the radio off, then press and hold the disp. button until settings appear once settings appear press the # 1 on the radio and scroll until you see tire mon. press the disp button again and it resets
Why would a 2002 Chevy Express brake lights work when the headlights are off but when you the headlights are turned on the brake lights are on and go off when you press the pedal?
i found it to be the tail light harnesses go bad . a common problem with them because the bulb sockets short out.
The Impala, as well as other GM models, have a passive theft deterrent called 'Passlock' which will prevent your car from starting if there was an attempted theft or other unauthorized entry into the ignition. However, this same system is prone to randomly and sometimes frequently engage itself even… when the car is being used properly. Solutions: 1) If the car will not start or "crank", turn you key in the ignition to the 'on' position and leave it there for a minimum 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the key to the 'off' position for two minutes. Now attempt to start the car. This is a built-in feature of the Passlock system to override the security lock. 2) If this does not work, you may need to have the car taken to a dealer (a regular mechanic will not be able to guarantee a fix). They will check for a diagnostic code, and if one is present which relates to this system, they will advise that you replace the BCM (Body Control Module), ignition cylinder, and the ignition switch. This will be around $800 depending upon your dealer and where you are located. Unfortunately, unless you systematically isolate each component, you may not know which part is actually causing the problem. However, the most likely culprit is a faulty ignition cylinder or a bad BCM. The BCM's are known to be "buggy". GM is well aware of this problem, but they will not issue a recall. Hope this helps a little. (MORE)
On your Chevy impala 2004 the low brake fluid light and brake light stays on for 2 days then goes of for a night then comes back on?
check your brake fluid level and fill with brake fluid to the top of the master cylinder reservoir.
2003 Impala clicking from behing glove box and lights flash radio and reverse and brake lights after engine is turned off what is the cause?
The BCM (Body Control Module) of the Passlock system is malfunctioning. It will need to be replaced. I just had it done to my '03 Impala.
Just came from a mechanic. Check to see if you have a bad ignition cyliner. This may help.\n. \nmust brake, going up / down steep hill too quickly
Check the brake light switch. It should be mounted on the upper part of the brake pedal or the brake pedal frame. If the brake lights go off when you unplug it you have a stuck or shorted switch.
if you have an aftermarket radio or if there was ever one installed then it would be the hazard light switch. it works as a relay for the stereo and lights. Replace it and you should be fine. Ebay says liek $60 but its only like $30 at the dealer.
My Brake Lights Stay On! . The most probable cause is that the brake light switch is out of adjustment .
Look under your dashboard and locate the brake pedal assy. follow it up towards the top of the dash and you will see a small bracket that holds a spring loaded switch secured with 2 jamb nuts..this switch should be 2 wired and the colors should be orange and white..(if no one has altered the wiring)…...disconnect the 2 plugs..the switch can only be taken out from the rear..make a mental note of the position of the threads on the barrel of the switch..(where the REAR jamb nut is tightened to) THEN...remove the front jamb nut ..depress the brake pedal slightly and pull the switch BACKWARD to remove it from the bracket..thread the REAR jamb nut back on the threaded barrel to the position of the old one..insert the new switch thru the back of the bracket and depress the pedal slightly to thread on the front jamb nut..tighten the front jamb nut and re-install the wire plugs..(it really doesn't matter if they go back in the same position. it's a simple contact switch and will work either way..

I don't know about the brake lights. I know that most cars, when you turn it off and get out, the head lights and main backlights stays on for a while but then goes off. The brake lights? Maybe it's the way that car is or something is wrong with the brake or you have it on wrong. .
they stay on because your break light switch has this little button that when you press it, well it will turn off nd tahts when you let go of the break nd when you press the break it releases the the button but also the break has a rubber thump thingy on it nd that must of broke cuz once it breaks t…he little button just goes thrue the little whole where you put the littl rubber thumper thingy yes because that had happened to my 240sx ... ^_^ (MORE)
Brake Light "Stuck" ON . There couold be several reasons depending on the make, model, and year of manufacture of your vehicle. Since you don't mention this info, this answer will have to be of a generic, basic nature. . The brake lights are staying on because voltage from the battery is getting t…o the brake light wire(s). This could be caused by: . The switch controlling the brake lights is not properly adjusted. . The switch is defective. . Although not frequent, a wire which is normally "hot" energized the time has somehow come into contact with the wire(s) to the brake lights. This is uncommon unless the wires have somehow rubbed together, or been pinched so as to damage the insulation on both wires so the metal conductors (wires) can make direct contact. Another cause for this type of failure is having had a short or overload condition in a wire within a harness containing several wires, including a brake light circuit wire, has overheated causing the insulation to melt and thus allowing the wires to make contact. . Someone who didn't know what they were doing has been jacking around with the wiring harnesses and has miss-connected the wires so that an always hot wire is connected to the brake light wiring. . There could be some other reasons which I cannot think of right now. Good luck! (MORE)
Loosen brake lines on master cylinder. Dont take off brake lines yet! Get under steering wheel, under the dash and look by the steering column. There will be 4 nuts. Take off the four nuts. Take brake lines off master cylider. Take out brake booster and master cylinder as one unit.
becaus the 2004 Chevy impala does not have automatic lights and they have to be turned off manually
Brake Lights that Won't Turn Off Usually the cause for this issue is that the brake light switch mounting is not properly adjusted . Occasionally, the adjustment is correct, but the switch is defective in that the contact points inside are not opening up. The first thing I check is the adjustmen…t [most switches screw into or out of their mounting bracket to adjust]. On most vehicles, the switch is operated by a "plunger" which is pushed into and out of the switch body by the "arm" of the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is in the fully retracted position, it allows the plunger to be pushed out of the switch by an internal spring, thus opening the switch contacts, and cutting off the flow of electricity, turning the light off. I "test" the brake light switch by disconnecting the wiring harness plug and unscrewing the switch from its mounting bracket. I then reconnect the wiring harness and while having a helper watch the brake lights and while holding the switch in my hand, with my thumb I "push" the plunger into the switch body. This should turn the lights ON. Removing my thumb, allowing the internal spring to push the plunger back out of the switch body, should cause the lights to turn OFF. If this test works, then the switch is OK and should be reinstalled and its position "tweaked" until the lights stay off when the brake pedal IS NOT depressed, but turn on when the pedal IS DEPRESSED. Another possible cause is that the brake pedal and its arm are no longer returning to the full "up," [retracted/disengaged] position. IF this situation is not too extreme then readjustment of the switch will correct the problem. However, IF the pedal "resting position" is too far down, then that suggests there is something seriously wrong with the brake system itself, and MUST be checked out and repaired for the sake of safety.- (MORE)
Turn the key to the on posistion. (Do not start the car). Press the gas pedal 3 times slowly and it should reset the light. I used to be able to reset it through the radio but I dont have the original one that came with the car.
The switch is out or you have crossed wires-it's still getting current. Use a test light with switch off on hot wire between switch & motor. If there is current, your switch is bad.
Turn Signal Troubleshooting (check in this order): 1. Check Fuse 2. Check Bulbs See sources and related links below for bulb information.
Have someone go in the car and press the pedal and have another look at the side thats working to determine this.
if your car is older with high mileage it could be just a malfunctioning dash bulb. or the ABS may not be working properly.
You need to find and fix the problem. Either your emergency brake is not completely off or you have a problem in your cars brake system. That warning light is there to warn you that a serious problem exists.
