Brake light switches are usually attached somewhere on the lever of the brake pedal. When you depress the brake pedal this action in somw way activates the switch either by opening or closing a circuit. Because the lack of brake lights can cause some serious accidents, if your switch is "sticking" you should replace it immediately for your own safety and the safety of the other drivers in your community.

sometime when you step on the brake to remove it out of park the relese gets stuck try stepping on brake and shaking gear shift handle We had a similar problem, and the answer that it is the Stop Light Switch on the brake pedal itself is Correct! Did cost $6 to fix, fixed the problem immediately and only 2 bolts to replace. Very easy. Very inexpensive!

It is telling you that you have a problem. The anti-lock brake light is telling you that the anti-lock safety device is in the off position. There may be a blown fuse for that unit, or a switch to turn it back on, or it may need a mechanic. Look for a switch first. If the brake light is on all the time, you may have a cylinder leaking brake fluid. There is a switch that is thrown if the breaking system gets out of adjustment that way, that is if one side gets more break fluid than the other.

you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun! you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun!

I am not sure but there should be a switch by the brake pad to release the safety neutral switch to allow you to shift. Try that.
