Something you may not realise is that the brake light bulb is often one bulb with two elements. One of the elements will be for the brake and the other will be for the tail lighting for example so,when tested, the actual bulb will still light up because the second element is unaffected. Make sure that the 'blown' bulb that you are actually changing is not in fact your fog lamp. This will not automatically light up when you test your lights as you have to operate this light separately (similarly to indicator lights). So the fog lamp bulb will appear to be the only one not lit up when you test your lights. Find the bulb with two elements inside and change that one. Sounds obvious (and may be obvious to many) but it's a common mistake. Hope this helps!.

What would cause brake lights to stay illuminated?

this happened to me on my 98 Honda accord and it was because my brake lights and sinal lights were not working properlyMost likely, the brake light switch is stuck. Have you checked your brake fluid level? You could be dangerously low.If you mean that your exterior brake lights stay on even when you aren't pressing on the brake pedal, you most likely have a bad brake light switch.If you follow your brake pedal arm up under the dash, you should see a switch that comes in contact with the arm. It might have been knocked out of position and all you need to do is put it back. If it is in its correct position, it is probably bad and will need to be replaced.It works like this...when you press on the brake pedal, the arm moves away from the switch, thus turning on your brake lights. When you release your foot from the brake pedal, it contacts the switch and your brake lights turn off.

If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?

There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch
