If the brake light fuse is good and the brake light bulbs are good it's probably a faulty brake light switch.

Why is the brake light on a 1989 Chevy S-10 Blazer flashing?

Well what do you know I solved the mystery mmyself it turns out after I paid to replace wheel cylinders and hoses and bleeding the brakes the cure was an $8.00 brake switch. Once I changed the switch the flashing brake light monster went away.

There is a brake switch under the dash immediately in front of the brake pedal arm. It has a little button on it that is depressed when the brake is off, but when you press on the brake pedal, the button comes out and the brake lights come on. I'm still trying to get mine out, so if anyone figures out how to do that, I'd like to know. :)

What is wrong with a 2001 Legacy Outback when you turn off the car and the tail lights stay on?

Try checking the brake light switch. The brake lights are working fine. The running lights are staying on. The solution was the parking light switch on top of the steering column was in the "on" position. Switched it to off and problem solved. Actually never used the switch, guess one of the kids was playing with it... Thank you! That was a simple fix - i didn't even know that switch was there!

Put a test light or a an ohm meter between the two leads. Push in or out depending on what kind of brake switch you have. If the ohm meter shows continuity or the test light lights up the switch is all right.

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.

What if your brake light on your Chrysler 300 stays on when parked does anyone know the anwer to fix the problem?

There's should be a brake light switch under the dash right behind the brake pedal arm. Sounds like it needs to be re-adjusted. The switch has a plunger that pulls out. Pull it all the way out, then just press the brake pedal down. You should hear a clicking as the plunger is re-adjusting back into the switch. Your just re-adjusting the plunger so that when you let off the brake pedal it will not be pushing on the brake light switch. hope this helped

How can I get my Ford Explorer Brake Lights to turn off?

Sounds like you have a problem with your brake light switch under the dash, mounted on your brake pedal metal arm assembly. I know if I get my head down near the brake pedal and push the pedal with my hand I can hear a loud click noise when the brake lights come on. I'm not a mechanic, but I've wondered if the brake fluid level is down in the master cylinder, does the brake pedal drop enough for the brake light switch to turn on the brake lights ?

What switch controls the shifter being released from park in a '97' Ford F-250 2wd?

I know in the late model cars you have to hold the brake to shift from park, so I would start there. There should be a switch on the brake pedal shaft.
