Brake light switch, goto your Hyundai dealership, buy the part for $15 and install it
The switch is located on the brake pedal. Undo bolt & wire & replace switch. Note adjustment before removing old switch if you've not replaced one before. You my want to use a mulitmeter (digital with continuity function) to test it before you buy one.
First you buy a good-quality 3rd brake light kit appropriate for the mounting angle on your particular car -- see the links below for examples. If your car's left and right brake lights are separate from the left and right rear turn signals (different bulbs for the brake lights and turn signals), then you just follow the instructions with the kit. If your car has combination brake/turn lights (the same red light burns steadily for brake light or flashes for turn signal) then you must run a new wire from the brake light switch to the rear of the car to feed the new 3rd brake light -- cars with combination brake/turn lights route power from the brake light switch through the turn signal switch and then from there to the back of the car; if you try to get away without running the new wire, the 3rd brake light won't work properly and you'll backfeed other lighting circuits with random results.
The problem points to the directional/lights and hazard switch. The brake light wiring is part of that circuit.You can buy the switch after market it is about $70.00.
i believe you need to buy a comlete new break switch.if the lever on the break switch is vertical to the floor,i think it might be bad.
i fixed this problem by replacing the brake light switch that seemed to be working fine otherwise.. in a a fit of rage in frustration i shattered the old one off the pedal and had to buy a new one, magically now my lights work.
Go to dealership and buy a plastic piece that goes on the brake pedal to turn the switch on and off. This little plastic snaps into place. The insert breaks after years of use and can easily be replaced by holding the brake pedal down and push it into place.
the brake light switch is behind the brake pedal just adjust it all the way out and brakes will come back on switch generally will not go bad but my crx and mr2 both have needed adjustments if the switch is bad go to radio shack and buy a momentary pushbutton clamp it to the same pillar switch over both wires and let there be brake lights luckily by 98 civic hasn't need this yet but im burning threw transmissions like it was fun to swap them. anyone else?
The next culprit is the Brake Light Switch located on the Brake pedal. There's one for the cruise control and one for the Brakes. Your local auto parts store can show you the Brake Light Switch. They are pretty easy to change on most cars. There are some models that require you to pull the steering wheel. Buy a Chilton Manual for your Vehicle. It'll help you. Good Luck
90% of the time if you buy a new brake lamp switch for $15 bucks and install it yourself, it will get rid of this problem.
You can order a brake light from the dealership or a garage, but it is cheaper to buy it from a store like Auto Zone or Advanced Auto Parts. Walmart and Sears also sell them.

If you have directional lights, tail lights, and hi - mount brake light that works but no lower brake lights, replace the multi-function switch on the steering column. Order from MONSTER Auto Parts online for about $90.00. Buy from dealer 300-400.00. Parts house 200-300. No need to replace the 4 way flasher even though they do not work. They will when you replace the MultiFunction switch. Good luck!

Sell the POS and buy a real car.
There is a rubber insert at the top of the brake pedal lever that has probably broken apart due to age. Without this insert the brake light switch can't turn off. You can buy a replacement insert from the dealership for about $4 and install it with your fingers.
well if you have allready cheaked the brake fuse it could be that the bulbs have burnt out check that.......As for me we tried to go the easy way with installing a toggle switch and manually turning them off and on, but today the wires melted completely from the battery to the brake lights themself, as of tomorrow we are going to buy a brake light switch and install it. I was told that is what is causing all of this trouble. I hope I helped.

is the simplest thing to fix in a vehicle, 1 go under your dash board follow the brake peda up and you'll see a switch(electrical conection) attached to it. that is the brake light switch 2 removed the electrical wire going to it and either unscrew or "un-pin" the switch.(piece of cake) 3 buy the same switch and re attach it in the same order that you took the old one off. if you have 2 switches o your pedal disconect the one that only has an electrical conector . because the one that has electrical conector and a hose is not a brake light switch that is your cruise control reset switch.(if your car is equiped with it)
Most likely your brake light switch is faulty or out of adjustment. You can buy an aftermarket service manual for your specific make, model, and year at your local auto parts store for less cost than half an hour of a mechanic's time. It will tell you where the switch is, how to test it, adjust it and replace it.
at the auto store. buy the best Dot3/4 and use that. nothing else. never use dot5 mineral fluid.
it's usually the brake light switch. There is a recall on some of them. Call VW and c if your car is one of the cars, they will fix it for free. If u do need to buy it. it takes 5 minutes to change and it's $4. good luck
