Check the fuse, bulbs/assy., and wiring another thing to check is where the bulbs connect. sometimes like my 94 one of the connectors in the bulb housing was broken. also there is a brake light sensor on the brake petal that is turned on when you depress the brake. usually near the top of the brake petal

There is a brake light switch or stoplight switch that may be bad on the brake pedal up top.

When your foot puts pressure on the brake pedal there is a switch that relays the brake pedal being pushed to the lights which makes them turn on.

On the 1979 B200 Sportsman V8 if the brake pedal makes all signal lights come on and hazards and flashers do not work on their own, it could be the flasher, but the culprit could also be a burned out bulb or a short in the wiring.

Is it when the ignition lights on the brake lights are stuck on? If so adjust the brake light switch at the pedal.hope this helps Answer: Its the park lights. The vehicle is probably in park.

just as the name it makes the brake lights come on when u press on the brake pedal

If by 'controller' you mean the switch that makes the brake lights come on, it is not in the trunk. It is located underneath the dashboard, next to the brake pedal.

There's a switch that the brake pedal engages when pressed that makes the brake lights go on. this switch may be stuck.Or the peddle staying on switch

Check the switch at the brake pedal, it is what makes the brakes come on, it may be malfunctioning.

Under the brake pedal is a brake light switch that when you press the pedal it hits it and makes your lights come on..sometimes when they get weak the pedal depresses them simply from the weight of the pedal and they stay on..Have a friend get inside the truck and pull UP on the brake pedal as you look at the lights..if the brake lights go off when they pull up on it..then it is that switch under the brake pedal

A malfunctioning brake light relay switch will cause your 1993 Toyota Corolla brake lights to stay on all the time. The brake light relay switch is located beneath the drivers side dashboard.

Most Likely the problem with the brake lights would be the switch located in front of the brake pedal arm just below the pivot point. It has a spring inside so that when the pedal is depressed it makes contact internally.

Check grounds in light sockets Check for corrosion and loose connections

Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery terminals? Engine seized? Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral switch?

The ABS and brake lights sole purpose is to signal you that you may have a problem with each / or one individual system. From your question we can assume that your ABS and brake lights come on continuously. There by we can safely deduce that you may have a problem with your ABS system and / or your brakes.

either a bad sensor somewhere, or a connection is disconnected

UNDER the dash, on the steering column and it makes contact with the brake pedal It looks like a bracket, that wraps around the brake pedal arm, and it has a cylinder type switch that makes contact with the brake pedal arm. When the brake pedal is pressed down it pushes the cylinder switch together which closes the circuit and makes you brake lights come on. It may be a fuse or wires but start with the switch.

User Avatar

Sounds like a starter or battery problem, possibly wiring problem

User Avatar

The switch is attached to the brake pedal itself. An energized pole goes into the switch, and, when it makes contact, the circuit is closed, allowing power to be transmitted to the brake lights.

What do you mean by running lights?? If it is the brake lights you are talking about, it may be the brake switch. this switch is on the brake pedal and makes the lightrs come on when you press the pedal. if you look to the very top of your brake pedal you should see this switch and a wire connected to it.(You may have to remove some of the trim, you may not. Im not to sure on this year. Hope this helps you some.

Power is bleeding across the electrical ground from the brake to the tail circuits. Take the rear lights apart. Wirebrush the contacts and where they ground to the body. Put dielectric grease on the contacts when you put the bulbs back in.

If you pull the parking brake up the running lights will go off - if not - start the car with the parking brake on and that should work, if you want to drive with the running lights off - you can get away with "slightly" putting the parking brake on (just so the parking brake light goes on in the dash but the brakes itself makes no contact) Otherwise you can remove the relay that controls the daytimes - maybe even a fuse

User Avatar

They're on a different circuit. The parking and dash lights go through the headlight switch. It could be the switch, a bad wire/connector or a burned fuse.

User Avatar

Look up under your dash where the brake pedal is attached, you will see a switch that makes the brake lights turn on when you step on the pedal and off when you leave off the pedal. The switch is probably stuck. In the meantime you could disconnect the negative battery cable so your battery doesn't die.
