Usually in every vehicle the brake lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in. There is a switch connected to the pedal in some way to make the light switch on.

Probably a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is installed incorrectly.

Could be, a blown fuse, burned out bulbs, bad brake light switch, or an improperly installed brake light switch.

Take hold of the brake light switch and pull backwards. The switch will come out in the same way that you would unplug anything. Plug the new switch in

No, the brkae light does operate with the air but it opporates by a switch that the air itself pushes.

Probably the brake light switch is bad. The brake light switch is what sends the unlock signal when you step on the brake to move the gear selector.

Check fuses first but its probably the brake light switch under the brake pedal.

The red brake light comes on when the p brake is set, the switch for the p brake is faulty, the brake fluid level is low, or the brake fluid level switch is faulty. If the abs light is also on, you will have codes in the abs computer too for an electrical failure of a sensor or switch..

If nothing is holding the pedal down then the brake light switch is at fault.

Look under the dash on the driver's side, half way down the brake pedal. When you depress the brake pedal, the pedal moves away from this switch, which allows the brake light pedal circuit to complete, and your brake lights come on. This brake light switch is always hot/on, as required by federal law, so that even with no key in the ignition, if you hit your brake pedal, the brake lights will come on.

The brake light switch is either out of adjustment or defective.

On most modern vehicles the brake light switch is located under the dash near the top of the brake pedal.

If both brake light bulbs fail to come on when the brake is depressed I'd check first to see if there may be a fuse that controls the brake light circuit. If there is no fuse and/or the fuse appears to be okay, the most likely culprit is a faulty brake light switch. This switch is located up and behind the brake pedal. There is a plunger that moves in and out acting as a switch when the brake pedal is depressed. It is this switch which possibly may be the culprit.

First check the brake light fuse, if good, then test the brake light switch.

Brake light switch has most likely come adrift from it's fitting

with the park lights on both left and right side are lite. but when the brake is applied the right brake lights up and the left goes out(doesn't light up)

You need to adjust your brake light switch. It should be located on the brake pedal. Unplug the switch and loosen the nuts to adjust the button closer to the brake pedal.

check light bulbs and fuses. light bulbs have 2 elements in them, one for stop and one for running. if thses are ok, replace brake light switch on brake pedal

THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS NOT PUTTING OUT BATTERY WHENEVER THE BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. CHECK TO SEE IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON, THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHIFT IT OUT OF PARK. IF NO BRAKE LIGHTS, THEN IT WON'T SHIFT OUT OF PARK. IF THIS IS THE CASE, THEN REPLACE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
