The brake relay switch is bad.

The abs and brake lights stay on when there is a blown fuse or when the abs computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.

If the brake lights stay on when the car is not running on most vehicles, including the 1994 Dodge Intrepid, there is probably a short somewhere in the wiring to the brake lights. The first place to investigate this problem would be the wires along the firewall that control the brake lights. Also, check the brake light switch above the brake pedal.

you need to clean the electric contacts on the rear lights, its just a earthing problem

If no lights appear when step on the brake pedal, while you check the lights from the rear, check the fuse that connects the brake lights. Pull out the fuse and look at the wire in the central window. If the wire is broken, replace the fuse. Make sure the new fuse is not blown, and carries the same amperage. Take the lights are out to check which one isn't working. The problem may be cured by replacing the bulb in a brake light that's out. A burned out bulb has a broken filament and a dark brown spot on one side. Check the owners manual for bulb type. Check the circuit if replacement bulbs and fuses do not restore the lights and also check the battery power and the light on your volt tester.

Defective or out of adjustment brake light switch.

Problem with the brake switch, below the pedal. The mounting may have got bent keeping them on.

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.

Probably a brake light switch.

there is a major problem in the brake system if both lights stay on. have it checked before you have no brakes at all

Brake lights remaining on in a 2003 Megane 1.4 can be an indication that there may be a bad fuse, a wiring issue, or a bad switch. Through the use of a multimeter you can troubleshoot the issue.

1 of 3 reasons why, your head lights are on, your reflector lights are on ,or your brake sensor is broken

Brake lights could stay on in a 1999 Dodge Stratus because of a short in the wiring. If the headlamps are off and the brake lights are still on, check the wiring for the brake lights that is inside the trunk. Sometimes cargo in the trunk can interfere with the lights.

If the brake lights stay on that probably means the switch on the brake pedal that activates them is defective.

I have a 98 Villager and I had the same problem. I found that the brake light switch at the brake pedal needed adjusting. Just loosen the lock nut and adjust the switch so that the brake lights do not stay on but only come on when the brakes are applied, then tighten the locknut. Worked for me. Hope this helps.

Adjust the brake switch which is above the brake pedal.

check the brake light switch

i had the same problem i replaced the rear lamp control module. it is located in the trunk in the large fuse box near the battery. there not cheap. i found one in a salvage yard for 90.00 bucks. if you can, try someone;s to see if that's your problem good luck.

the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.

A problem has been detected with the Anti-lock Brake System It could be a fuse ( blown or in my case the fuse was not installed all the way ) a sensor , or some other problem

The problem could be something as simple as a bad light in brake lights grounding out, a fuse under the dash or engine compartment ( check all fuses with a test light) or as complex as the turn signal arm wireing rubbing and grounding out.

By depressing the parking brake only one(1) click so that it will not engage the brake, but the lever will stay down, this will disable the daytime driving lights. The parking brake indicator light will stay lit on the instrument panel however. It's simple.There is a fuse in your fuse box that you can take out and it will disable the lights. It's either fuse # 2,5,15,22, or 23. The little green light in the upper left portion of your instrument panel will still operate as if the lights have never been de-activated. It will stay lit until you manualy turn your headlights on, then it will go out.

Brake light switch out of adjustment or defective

It is probably the brake lights that are on due to a misinstalled or damaged brake light switch.
