Why would the brake lights stay on whenever the car is on even after you have replaced the brake light switch?

Out of adjustment. Adjust the mounting of the switch so the brakes lights are off until you press the brake pedal.

i have tail lights but do not have brake lights nor do i have turn signals. i have replaced brake switch and all bulbs


The turn signal switch overrides the brake light circuit while the turn signals are on. If the switch is damaged or worn out the brake lights won't work.


Check the brake light fuse. If you have 12 volts at the brake light switch I would suspect the signal light switch is at fault.


The BOO (Brake On/Off) Switch may need to be replaced. If it is bad, it would cause the brake lights to NOT illuminate when the brake pedal is applied.




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


The brake lights won't turn off because the brake light switch on the pedestal of the brake pedal needs to be replaced.


a crappy car. my 99 beetle has the same problem. brake light switch new, bulbs and fuses new. brake lights just work whenever the heck they want. this is one of the many reasons my car has a for sale sign in the window. good luck.




If you have the same bulb for brake and signal, brake light power needs to be interrupted by the signal lights, The brake circuit has to go through the signal light switch so the problem could be there.


Your brake light switch is faulty. It is very difficult to fit the new one as it is a one shot switch (1 chance of putting it in properly).


Check the brake light switch. This can cause the brake lights to go out. There have been a couple of recalls on the 2001 for this exact problem. Contact your local VW dealer and have the switch replaced.


Switch on brake pedal needs tightened replaced, or switch for lights needs tightened or replaced.


check the wires at brake light switch on brake pedal they are bad about breaking brake light switch


When break lights do not turn off when the brake pedal is fully retracted suggests two possible causes: * The brake light switch is out of adjustment and needs to be adjusted. * The brake light switch is defective and needs to be replaced.


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.



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


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.



You may need to check your brake light switch. It is a small switch located on top of your brake peddle (up on the arm of the peddle). This switch allows the brake lights to come on whenever you push the peddle.


There is a switch down at the brake pedal, It's most likely bad. This is true. There is a switch under the brake pedal that probably needs to be adjusted or replaced. I have this same problem in my 1998 mercury villager. I have not replaced or adjusted the switch...not sure the cost or how hard it is to do. However, I have found that once you are in park, if the brake lights do not go off, I press down hard on the brake pedal and the lights go off.
