Can't say that I fully understand the question. Rear window brake? Brakes don't work? Please explain. Does brake pedal go to the floor? No brake fluid in Master cylinder? due to leak. Brake pedal has normal travel but no stopping? Worn brake linings. Clicking in console could be normal, sounds like shift interlock is working properly.

make sure your brake pads are in good condition, a vibration in the brake pedal indicates a warped rotor to include worn front disk pads, make sure your front tires are not going bald, because they will do just as much vibration as a warped rotor when stepping on the brake pedal.

Does a bad master cylinder cause brakes to stay on?

Not usually. It is possible for the mater cylinder get suck in the apply position, but the brake pedal would not return to the up position after stopping.

These issues will be at one or more of the wheels, so check there if your brake pedal is at normal height.

Please re-phrase your question; it appears you are saying the brake lights come on when you push the brake pedal and the lights are working (normal operation). If the lights are staying on after you release the pedal, then the problem is with th brake light switch (sticking). Thanks Malcolm

Brake lights do not work on 2005 Nissan sentra?

Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.

What happens when you run out of brake fluid?

The brake pedal will go to the floor but will have absolutely no effect on stopping the vehicle. When you push on the brake pedal it moves the fluid through metal tubes (called brake lines) to force the brake pads against the rotor which slows and stops the car. No fluid means nothing is in there to make the brake pads engage the rotors.

Where is the switch under the brake pedal you cant find it?

It is above the brake pedal not under it. Follow the brake pedal bracket all the way up and you will see the brake pedal switch.

Sounds like the brake switch underneath the dash connected to the brake pedal is stuck. Look under the dash at where the brake pedal is connected and move the pedal with your hand and you should see an electrical connection or contact mounted to the pedal.
