You are getting a feedback voltage from somewhere. Take it to a garage that has a good electrical mechanic as this purbably will be a hard one to find.

=I don't know about the brake lights. I know that most cars, when you turn it off and get out, the head lights and main backlights stays on for a while but then goes off. The brake lights? Maybe it's the way that car is or something is wrong with the brake or you have it on wrong.=

The brake lights work without the key on, so you have a problem with your brake light switch.

The 2001 Chevy Blazer brake lights may not work and the third bake stays on because the current light needs to be replaced. A replacement brake light can be purchased at an Auto Parts store like Pep Boys.

there is a brake switch under the brake pedal. This is a button that pretty much controls the break lights. you might need to replace this or look through the fuse box under the hood. (blue 15) is the fuse that powers the brake lights.

The brake indicator light tests continuity to your brake lights and activates if continuity is broken. This means one of the bulbs is out or there is a problem in the wiring to the lights. The light also comes on when you start your car and stays on for a few seconds along with the flashing "check" signal on your dash. If you wait or push the check button above your rear view mirror the lights should go out. If the brake indicator light doesnt go out check your brake lights and make repairs if necessary. The light should function correctly after the bulb is replaced or wiring is repaired. If not you may have a malfunction in your active check control system wich is behind the panel of lights above your mirror.

If parking lights stay on after the car is turned off on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra than the brake switch is malfunctioning. The brake switch turns off when pressed in and if it does not work the lights of the vehicle will stay on.

if you mean the brake light on the dash... fill your brake fluid as it's probably low If you mean the brake lights outside the car, your switch is shorted and needs replacement, or you need to lift your foot off the pedal

User Avatar

depending on the car, it can mean a couple of things. For example, the hand brake is not fully disengaged, or the sensor isn't registering that it is disengaged, it could also mean that you have one of your primary brake lights out or in some models, it could indicate that there is a malfunction or deficency in the brake system in which case you should have it checked.

Check BRAKE fluid level. Or is it a "tail lamp" warning? Y-THINK-Y

User Avatar

check just above the brake pedal there is a button switch there it sounds like you have to adjust it out so the lights shut off when you release the pedal .ck it out that is the problem

User Avatar

There is a switch that is activated by the arm of the brake pedal. You can see it by looking underneath the dashboard. The switch could be malfunctioning or it may have to be adjusted by loosening the locknut and backing it away from the the brake pedal arm.

Try this. Look for a blue disc at the brake pedal assembly that may have broken and fallen out. It's called a bumper and costs $3.20 at the dealer. Just happened to me.

User Avatar

I would hope not that would be dangerous and the car should not be driven in that condition. How would someone behind know that you were actually breaking?

User Avatar

The brake light switch was probably knocked out of adjustment. Crawl under dash and look for a plunger switch that contacts the brake pedal arm. Pull the switch away from the arm by a few clicks. That should do it. PULL THE FUSE TO RESET THE BRAKE COMPUTER AND THE LIGHT STAYS OFF.

Any light that stays on is not a "brake light", it's a "tail light". It's possible that they may be on at a lower level normally, and brighten when the brakes are applied, though.

NOTE: Switch button must be depressed to open (shut off) circuit / lightsI found that on my 2001 Windstar that there is no adjustment for the brakelight switch and that the problem was that the brake pedal return spring had a very slight amount of rust on it and needed lubrication(I prefer silicon spray) and that it also needed to be budged a bit with a screw driver.More than likely it is your brake light switch out of adjustment. it is located under the dash on the brake pedel itself it is not breaking connection which it should be simple and you can fix it yourself and save yourself some money.It's usually the brake pedal is sticking or you might just need to adjust the pin when you apply your brakes it makes those lights stays on. sometimes you can spray a wd-40 and it'll go away.. this pin is located on top of the brake pedal when you look underneath the steering wheel column or panel....hoped i helped you on this one...The brake light switch may be either stuck or broken.Get down in the driver's footwell, and follow the brake pedal arm up under the dash. Look for the switch (see link for a picture), see if the moving arm on it moves freely as the pedal is depressed. If not, try spraying some lube on it (WD-40 or the like) and working it to get it to move freely.If the arm won't move freely, or the lights don't turn on even when you move the arm, the switch should be removed and replaced.need to replace brk light switch and have battry and alternator testedlocate the switch on the bracket under neath the dash. it should have two wires coming infrom it. remove electrical connector, remove the clip and it should come out, reverse to installAll brake light switches are mounted either on the brake pedal itself or right next to it with some kind of "tab" on the brake pedal making the connection to the switch. On yours there may be some plastic decorative piece hiding it so remove the trim and you should see the switch.Answerlook just above your brake pedal their is a pressure switch that closes when you step on the pedal. it has two wires of the back look at the plastic bushings($4.00 at dealer or the switch $15-$20 for parts)AnswerMy favorite trick is to leave the emergency brake handle up just a little bit - after I panic, I remember I had actually used the e-brake when I had the van jacked up. ;)AnswerThe brake lights are triggered by an actuator that is mounted in front of the brake pedal arm. Check the wiring connection to the switch. You can remove the wire connector and jump the wires inside it. If the lights work when the wires are jumped, the switch is bad.locate the switch on the bracket under neath the dash. it should have two wires coming in from it. remove electrical connector, remove the clip and it should come out, reverse to installAnswerIt is on the steering column, but those rarely go bad. In fact, I have never had to replace one. Almost always it is because you have no brake lights. Possibly a bad brake light switch.Answerremove plastic crowl above brake pedal unplug switch remove, replace switch

Adjustment need to be backed off by the brake pedal!

User Avatar

on the brake pedal there is rubber or plastic pad that when the brake is pushed in the button pops out and the brake light go on. if the rubber/plastic pad brakes there is an empty hole and the brake lights will stay on all the time. this may not be what your looking for, but good luck

User Avatar

it has nothing to do with changing the pads when your brakes were pumped back up after having the caliper pistons pushed back in you may have broken the brake light switch or it may not be locked into the linkage on the brake pedal.the switch is on the brake pedal arm half way up they twist lock into the arm push it all the way in the lights should go out or replace it they are cheap

brake light swith located under the brake pedal is stuck.

User Avatar

emergency brake lights are controlled by a switch usually at the lever or nearby, you can disable it by crossing the wires but it is better to replace it so that you are not driving around with the brake on by accident try cleaning the switch first so that it goes in and out easily.

The battery light stays on when the alternator is over or under charging. The red brake light stays on when the parking brake is set or the fluid is low. The abs light stays on when the abs computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.
