Brake lights draw their energy from the vehicle's battery.

the connection between the battery and the brake lights

If the car/truck is running, it will not make a difference. However, if there was an electrical short on one of the wires that leads back to the brake lights, it might slowly draw power while the engine is off.

The ABS light indicates a problem with the anti-lock brake system, the airbag light is a problem within the airbag system and needs to be checked as soon as possible, the engine light is a malfunction with the engine after start up, the battery light shows the battery is no longer being charged, the EPC light is a fault in the engine. There are also some other lights that are self explanatory, and can be found in your car's manual.

"Stuck" brake lights indicate that the brake light switch on the brake pedal is broken. It should be replaced.

User Avatar

Look up under your dash where the brake pedal is attached, you will see a switch that makes the brake lights turn on when you step on the pedal and off when you leave off the pedal. The switch is probably stuck. In the meantime you could disconnect the negative battery cable so your battery doesn't die.

There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch

There are several warning lights on a 2008 Honda Civic. The main lights are for the brake system, air bag system, check engine, tire pressure, oil pressure, and battery power.

User Avatar

Well, that depends on whether you still have the lights and blinkers, ect. If there are not lights, blinkers, brake lights, or horn, then you do not need a battery to run this bike. If you do have these items, then you would need a battery

Brake Lights do not turn offUsually this is caused by the physical position of the brake light switch not being adjusted properly.

To reset the ABS and brake lights on a 2002 Toyota MR2, trying disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes. A Toyota dealer can also reset the lights.

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.

I hope this helps, I would take a calculated guess that it is strictly a safety factor (in an emergancy on the highway if your foot is on the brake you are less likely to be rear ended) and if this is indead true, than it is wired to the battery independent of your starter switch If the brake lights are staying on even with your foot off the brake, it may be that the switch controlling the brake lights is broken. Beware; this can drain the battery.

the brake light switch on the brake pedal is bad and needs to be replaced. A $10.50 part at parts store.

The fuse for the brake lights is in the engine compartment fuse box, located behind the battery. Open the lid. Several fuses are marked but many are not. There is a group of 12 fuse sockets in the middle of the panel, arranged in 3 rows and 4 columns. The brake light fuse is in row 2, column 2. It powers left, right and middle brake lamps. If your brake switch fails in the ON position, you can pull this fuse until you can get a replacement switch. The drain of these lights being on can kill your battery overnight. Do not drive car without brake lights!Answerthe fuse panel is located behind the kick panel on the pass side, just below the dash.(to the right of where your feet sit in the floor board) there is also another power distribution panel under the hood next to the battery. Answerthere is no fuse marked brake lights on jeep cherokee's if you have no brake lights and all bulbs are good your problem is the brake switch mounted on your brake pedal, about 30 bucks.

Defective battery or something is pulling power from the battery. Check the glove box light, interior lights, trunk light, hood light, brake lights, etc.

In the brake fluid reservoir. This is in the engine compartment behind the battery.

You may have disconnected the earth return or battery wire for the brake lights. This is only a possible solution if the brake lights do not use the frame as an earth return directly adjacent to the brake light housing. Normally the switch operated by the brake pedal or lever connects and earth to the brake circuit to light the brake lamp.

The cruise system shares fuses with the engine and brake lights. If the car runs and the brake lights work, it is not a fuse.

User Avatar

Yes, it has brake lights.

User Avatar

depress the brake pedal and turn the engine switch to the start posiiton and start the engine,,, Does this mean to hold the brake down until you hear the engine start.

User Avatar

That would tell me that your battery is not dead because you do not need the car turned on for your brake lights to operate
