normal wear and tear. Brake light switch, bulbs or sockets.
Check the fuses and if they are good then check the brake light switch.
Check the switch on the brake pedal
brake light switch would be most common cause
Yes, or a bad brake switch, a wiring problem, or bad bulbs.
If you mean the brake lights are stuck on, then check the stoplight switch located on the top of the brake pedal.
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.
Possible ground issue at the taillights.
BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AT TOP OF BRAKE PEDAL
The BOO (Brake On/Off) Switch may need to be replaced. If it is bad, it would cause the brake lights to NOT illuminate when the brake pedal is applied.
More than likely it is the brake light switch that is attached to the brake pedal.
brake switch located on the top of the brake pedal
Check your brake light switch at hte brake pedal.
Check bulbs - they are double filamented smaller is for turn and brake lights
The most likely cause is a bad brake light switch (if none of the brake lights illuminate) but if its only one of the brake lights, try changing the bulb. Even if they still work as running or turn lights because they have a double filament and may still work partially, but not as brake lights.
Check the switch adjustment on the brake pedal arm.
Check the bulbs - they are doubloe filamented with the smaller being for brake/turn signals Check the fuses
Blown fuse, bulb, or bad brake light switch.
Check the bulbs, fuse & brake light switch on the pedal.
the brake light switch is out of adjustment. Readjust the switch.
Brake Lights Don't Turn OffUsually this issue is caused by an improperly adjusted brake light switch. Sometimes it could be a defective switch, but this is rare.
Sounds like the brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment and yes it would cause the cruise control not to work.
A broken or out of adjustment brake light switch.
I had the same thing happen on an 1999 dodge 2500 and it was the rear speed sensor located on top of the back rearend got from dealer for about $35.
You probably need to replace your brake light switch. It's near the top of the brake assembly, beyond a trim panel. The fact that all three brake lights don't work rules out problems in the multifunction switch (the cause of similar problems affecting only the two rear lights.)
