Best Answer

The brake light switch is under the dash, and whenever the brake pedal is touched the brake light comes on. If the switch has failed or is out of adjustment it will leave the brake light on.

Why would your dashboard lights stay on when the car is off and the key is out?

make sure your dash light dim control switch is not turned all the way up. they are usually found in the dash on the drivers side or on the same control as the headlights. see your owners manual for further information. Usually, instrument panel lights ["dashboard lights"] are turned on and off WHEN the headlights or parking lights are turned on or off. Since the head lights and tail lights are NOT powered through the ignition switch, and therefore can be turned on even while the ignition switch is turned off and the key removed, so are the instrument lights. WHILE the head lights OR the parking lights are turned ON, "brightness" control of the instrument lights is accomplished by ROTATING the headlight switch KNOB. A FULL CLOCKWISE rotation of the headlight switch knob will FULLY DIM THE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS. Full counterclockwise rotation [ONLY to the "DETENT STOP"] will adjust the instrument lights to full bright. NO POSITION of this switch causes the INSTRUMENT lights to remain ON. IF the knob is turned a little more forcefully COUNTERCLOCKWISE, PAST THE DETENT, then the interior courtesy lights and the dome light will be turned ON. IF your instrument lights remain ON, suggests that you have not FULLY turned OFF the headlight and/or parking light switch. If, as answer 1 suggests, you have a SEPERATE control switch for the instrument panel lights, then it may be possible that that switch does have a FULL-ON position which keeps the instrument lights on continuously, regardless of headlight/parking light switch status. As Answer 1 suggests, your Owner/Operator Manual should explain how your particular vehicle's instrument lights are controlled. If you do not have your Manual, find someone who has a car identical to yours and ask them, or look at their Manual. If you can't find someone, try a dealership used car lot for a vehicle like yours. j3h
