There is a push off switch under the dash that when the break pedal is depressed is activated. Look for it and replace it. Most of the time it is not the switch what is broken but a rubber part on the pedal level that is responsible for pushing the switch to the off position.

Any information about a 2005 Ram 2500 that the running lights keep coming on and kill the battery when the vehicle is off?

Are you sure it is your running lights & not just the brake lights? A bad brake light switch (common problem) will cause your brake lights to stay on all the time because they are not wired to the accessory switch, meaning they will work whether the truck is on or off. Hope this helps!

There's got to be a break in the system somewhere. Take your test light and start with the brake light switch (on the brake pedal) and keep working your way along the system until you locate the problem.

What would cause the brake light on a 2004 corolla to come on?

brake warning light on can mean your handbrake is engaged or that brake fuild is low. Those would be the first two easy things to check. If your brake fluid is low, you will need to keep a close eye on that, as you may have a leak and that can lead to a loss of your brakes.

2000 Ford Windstar was running fine wont come out of park even when car is turned on pushing brake but still stuck in park?

First check to see if you have brake lights, if no brake lights you have a bad shift interlock switch,it is a small black box located behind your brake pedal.It's about $45.00 from the dealership. I keep a spare in my van.

Why would the brake lights on your 1994 Corvette not function except the center high one which works fine?

AnswerTry checking your fuse for your tail lights in your fuse box if that doesnt work try check for a short in your wiringAnswerI noticed on my 1990 did the same. Also found out it only happens when the TILT wheel is completely down. Try lifting the tilt wheel up and down with someone watching your brake lights. Have not pinned down the source in the column yet, but will keep looking!!!The brake light switch is probably the problem. My '91 had the opposite - the brake lights worked but the 3rd light did not. The brake light switch has 2 terminals - one for brake lights and one for the 3rd brake light. Replace the switch.

Why do your brake lights stays on and you tried changing the switch but it still stays on?

Answer 1IF the switch is KNOWN to be good, then the problem is one of two things. First, the proper adjustment of brake light switches IS CRITICAL to proper operation.IF the adjustment is proper, then the only other cause would be that, somehow, the and/or a (any) "hot" wire is in contact with the wire from the brake light switch to the brake lights. This is a very unusual and almost never occurring situation.Most brake light switches are adjusted via screw threads on the mounting end of the switch which screws in or out of the mounting bracket which is also threaded.The best method of adjusting the switch is to have a helper stand at the rear of the vehicle to keep you posted regarding the ON-OFF status of the brake lights while you trial adjust the switch.To adjust the switch where the lights are staying on, "unscrew"/back out the switch from the mount just until the brake lights go out.Then press the brake pedal to make sure that you did not back the switch out too far. If so, screw it back in, one quarter turn at a time [testing between each adjustment] JUST UNTIL the brake lights turn on when the pedal is depresed, but goes out when the pedal is released. Good luck.

Why does the brake light fuse keep tripping on your 2001 ford ranger The tail and reverse lights work fine?

The brake light fuse might keep tripping or going out on a 2001 Ford Ranger is there is a short in the line. The fault could also be with the part that tells the brake light to come on. This is located in the steering column. There is a brake light relay switch where the brake pedal is attached to the steering column.

Can a 1974 vw super beetle master brake cylinder go without the brake switch indictors?

If you want to know if you can leave the brake switch out of the master cylinder the answer is no, it will leak. If you can plug the hole with something that does not protrude into the housing to seal it the MC should still work, you just won't have any brake lights. Be aware though the Master Cylinder creates a large amount of pressure when you step on brake pedal so you need to screw something into it or it will just blow out or leak. You can use an electric micro switch on the pedal itself like the modern cars do to keep the brake lights. If you want to know if the MC will still work if keep the switch in it then yes, but again you won't have brake lights with a bad switch without using something else.

Other than a fuse and the bulb is there anything that would keep the brake lights from working on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra?

I would suspect the wiring, or maybe the BOO switch. (brake on off switch) If the other brake lights work, you've ruled out the BOO. Have someone or yourself use a multimeter and check the voltage when the brake is applied at the bulb socket. If it's not getting voltage, then you'll need to trace the wiring back and find out where the short circuit is.

What fuse powers instrument panel lights and tail lights on a 2006 pt cruiser?

Is it possible there are 2 separate problems in your case? Here is half an answer. I would look for a single cause instead of this switch, but keep it in mind: A switch underneath the brake pedal must be pressed to activate the brake lights. It is an easy switch to put in, but it takes specific steps to set the distance to the pedal, for it to work.

What causes the back tail lights to stay onNow the car wont start does this have to do with the battery it's a 93 Honda Accord?

if you mean that your brake lights stays on, the problem most likely will be a bad/shorted brake light switch and as a result your battery lost power therefore your car is not going to start. o under your dash board on your brake pedal you'll see a wired/switch conected to need to press the brake and disconect that wire/sending unit until you get a new switch otherwise it will keep eating your battery.remember once you disconect that, your brake lights wont work.(don't get a ticket)

Would the rear window brake light bulbs being bad keep the other brake lights from working on a Lincoln?

No, they are independent of each other. Check the bulbs and if defective, replace them. If not then you either have a bad brake light switch or a bad turn signal switch. ** Also try spraying contact cleaner around the emergency light swith on the steering column. Press it many times to lubricate and clean it and see if that brings the brake lights back to life.
