If the ((ABS)) Light is on then it's a good thing indicating that the Antilock brakes sensor is in good condition. I too have a 2002 mountaineer
check the brake light switch. located on the brake pedal it may be bad
Under the brake pedal is a brake light switch that when you press the pedal it hits it and makes your lights come on..sometimes when they get weak the pedal depresses them simply from the weight of the pedal and they stay on..Have a friend get inside the truck and pull UP on the brake pedal as you look at the lights..if the brake lights go off when they pull up on it..then it is that switch under the brake pedal
Brake lights could stay on in a 1999 Dodge Stratus because of a short in the wiring. If the headlamps are off and the brake lights are still on, check the wiring for the brake lights that is inside the trunk. Sometimes cargo in the trunk can interfere with the lights.
Probably a brake light switch.
1 of 3 reasons why, your head lights are on, your reflector lights are on ,or your brake sensor is broken
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.
If the brake lights stay on that probably means the switch on the brake pedal that activates them is defective.
I've had that happen on my 02 moutianeer. I got back in and hit the brake and it went out. You could have one of the sockets on your back lights burning out. THat includes the the top tail light also.
Adjust the brake switch which is above the brake pedal.
The brake relay switch is bad.
Bad brake switch
the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.
are you sure it is the brake lights and not the tail lights. if it is the brake lights you most likely have a short some where. go to a auto eletrican It is the brake lights which turn on. Short in the switch or the wiring?
The brake lights on a 96 Jimmy are operated by the brake light switch, mounted on the brake pedal assembly. If the switch is bad the lights could stay on or off, or be sporadic.
It is probably the brake lights that are on due to a misinstalled or damaged brake light switch.
If the brake lights stay on when the car is not running on most vehicles, including the 1994 Dodge Intrepid, there is probably a short somewhere in the wiring to the brake lights. The first place to investigate this problem would be the wires along the firewall that control the brake lights. Also, check the brake light switch above the brake pedal.
Brake light switch out of adjustment or defective
The brake light is controlled by a little button switch that's mounted high on the brake pedal lever. If you follow the brake pedal upwards with your fingers, you'll feel the button. It has a spring in the button that pushes the button back out when you release the brake pedal. If the spring jams, the brake lights stay on. Replace the button switch.
check the brake pedal, there is a switch on the back of the pedal that depressed when the brake is depressed that turns the lights on, when this is loose it keeps the lights on.
Possibly a defective brake light swith stuck closed.
Brake light on 1994 Honda civic staying on.
