the brake pedel pushes a switch right on top of the pedel lever it can come loose or go bad. check fuses first

The brake light is on because there is a problem with the brake system. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on. Once the problem is corrected the light will reset itself.

The antilock brake system has a problem. The light will remain until it is fixed. The abs will not function when light is on. Take it to your mechanic soon.

Perhaps fixing the ground wire for the passenger side on the 2000 Chevy S-10 will require that the driver's side ground wire also be fixed in order to have the brake lights work properly. There has to be a short somewhere in the wiring for the lights to go off.

Check the bulbs first. I had the same problem on a 94 Oldsmobile and it was the dimmer switch. Replaced that and fixed the problem Check the bulbs first. I had the same problem on a 94 Oldsmobile and it was the dimmer switch. Replaced that and fixed the problem

you probably have a bad spot in the convenience center. this is the secondary fuse panel on the inside of the firewall. i temporarily fixed mine by hooking the tail lights up to a toggle switch. this will work as long as you have brake and turn etc when you turn the headlights on.

Your car is faulty. DO NOT drive it - take it to a qualified mechanic to be fixed.

I had this problem and it was a short in one of the back rear brake lights. One of the bulbs was not screwed in correctly and it was causing the brake light to stay on when the headligst are on. We removed all bulbs and inserted them again, making sure they were tight. This fixed our issue with a dodge 2003 durango.

I have the same problem- press on the brake, no brake lights. Press on the brake and pull back on turn signal/high beams lever, brake lights turn on! Jiggle the lever, brake lights turn on, but left turn signal does not work. I have replaced the switch that is down near the brake pedal and that is not the problem. I think you may need to replace the whole turn signal/high beams/cruise control switch....or at least that's what I'm going to try.

It is important to know what the meanings of the emergency lights on a ca. A brake light would stay on in a car because the brake system needed to be fixed, and the light needed to be reset.

nothing, get it fixed by an auto electriction , there is a shortage somewhere

The 98 Blazer doesn't have a Thermal Expansion Valve... it has a fixed orifice tube.

At the top of the brake pedal there is a little plastic piece that pushes the switch to turn the brake lights off after the pedal is released. The plastic piece has a tendenacy to fall apart after a period of time. I fixed mine with by replacing it with a 20 cent medal bolt.

Possibly the brake light switch. not sure where it is located tho. maybe under the dash attached to the brake pedal lever. it may have a spring loaded button on it so that as soon as you push the brake lever the least bit the button comes out allowing the switch inside to connect. this switch malfunction usually causes the brake lights to stay ON tho.hope this is the problem. Have you considered the relay? I believe the brake lights are engaged via relay on the 2000 Blazer. Check your hazard lights and your third brake light. I am the previous anonymous. I have done some research and discovered that your vehicle has actually been recalled because of this very problem! Check the NHTSA's website or contact your local Chevrolet service center to set up an appointment for free service on the recalled part (actually a multifunction switch which also relates to your hazard lamps). The recall Campaign ID is 01V364000. The Part Number is 506377. . check your hazard switch. despite what most dealerships say, you can replace just the hazard/4-way switch which is much, much cheaper than the entire turn signal assembly they try to sell you. that fixed my brake light problem ---------- brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch. the switch is needed to interrupt power to the brake light that needs to blink for turn signal useage., also to allow the lights to blink when flashers are used. turn signal switch failure is usually the cause of no brake lights. replace the switch assembly. if the third brake light always works then it is the turn sig switch assembly that is causing the issue with the brake lights not working.

The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the ABS system. Once the problem is fixed the light will reset itself after a short drive. Your local auto parts store can retrieve the code(s) set in the ABS module to help direct you to the fault.

There is a problem with the brake system, and the light is a warning for you to have it checked by a pro mechanic. Brakes are very important right? In my experience it was a cable that runs to one of the front wheels, it cost me $100 to have it fixed at a shop. It does not harm anything with the light on, it just means you do not have anti lock brakes working.
