Faulty or over sensitive parking brake switch or sensor.,
check brake light switch
Is the brake fluid level low in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment ?
applying pressure to the brake pedal
It doesnt matter whether its running or not. Brake fluid is hydroscopic, which means it absorbs water from the atmosphere so it has to come from a sealed container and your cars brake fluid needs changing every two years. Light yellowish colour is ok, if its a dark colour it needs changing.
Check the brake fluid reservoir, with some vehicles they share the low fluid light and the e-brake light.
Bad fuse or bad brake light switch.
On mine, when the lights are off, the left brake light is faint but still works. When the lights are one, the running light is on (faint) but goes out when I hit the brakes. And the turn signal doesnt ever work. When Ive checked the light bulbs they burn out fast. I have been told that replacing the plastic bulb housing will fix this. But I have not tried it yet.
Have you checked the brake fluid level in the master cylinder it may be low causing a light to come on . i did the level is ok.
Possibly blown fuse, bad brake light switch, or blown brake light bulbs.
Check your break fluid, it might be running low
it does that on mine becsue the brake doesnt work if ur break works its probally a short or something
running or parking lights, or plate light, but that is singular.
Please check the Brake light switch....The brake light switch should be located near or on the brake pedal (up on the stem of the brake pedal)
its a ground wire
that means your brake fluid is low
because there is two filiments in the bulb one for brake and signal light and one for running light
Same problem - bulbs are good but the driver side brake light will not operate. Also the horn stopped working at the same time.
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.
Somebody who "rides" the brake is constantly applying pressure to the brake pedal with their foot. People who tailgate ride their brake alot. "Covering" the brake is a form of defensive driving. For example, while proceeding through a traffic light, you would want to take your foot off of the gas pedal and place it just above the brake pedal (without applying pressure) to decrease your reaction time in case you need to brake suddenly.
The brake lights may not work on a 1993 Honda Prelude if the brake light switch is no longer working. The brake light switch is in the steering column just above where the brake pedal is bolted to it. There is also a chance that a brake light fuse is blown.
Check your alternator, Mine did the exact thing. The Battery light and the !!BRAKE!! Light came on and couldn'y figure it out for the hell of me, did volt tests while running and only had 12.5 volts on the battery. I changed the alternator ($179.99) and got back to the normal 14 or so volts while running and lights shut off. no idea why the brake light was on at all.
BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AT TOP OF BRAKE PEDAL
on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
