Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.

Probably your emergency brake pedal. Try lifting up on your e brake pedal and see if id goes out.

Sounds like the brake switch underneath the dash connected to the brake pedal is stuck. Look under the dash at where the brake pedal is connected and move the pedal with your hand and you should see an electrical connection or contact mounted to the pedal.

to the left of your brake pedal there should be a little hatch. its behind that

Foot on brake pedal or linkage to trans is loose or out of adjustment.

The fuse box on a 1986 Buick Regal is located below the dash near the brake pedal. It prevents circuits in the vehicle from being overloaded.

On my 1999 Buick Regal the DRL module is located on the outside foot well behind the parking brake pedal under the carpet. My DRL has gone bad and is making the car quit.

I just did my Mom's 1991 Buick regal 3.8L. I removed the kick panel underneath the dash above the brake pedal. Follow the brake pedal arm up on the right side of the pedal. I used a mirror to spot the flasher unit. The flasher unit is held by a spring clip with the top of the unit pointing down. Just pull the flasher out of the clip and pull it down.

When you push the brake pedal.

Under the brake pedal is a brake light switch that when you press the pedal it hits it and makes your lights come on..sometimes when they get weak the pedal depresses them simply from the weight of the pedal and they stay on..Have a friend get inside the truck and pull UP on the brake pedal as you look at the lights..if the brake lights go off when they pull up on it..then it is that switch under the brake pedal

Small pedal on the left of the brake pedal - activates the rear brake to hold vehicle

When you step on the brake pedal, you close a switch at the top of the arm that holds the pedal. That puts power to the brake lights

manualy lift brake pedal to see if they go out. if so check spring at pedal

check the brake pedal, there is a switch on the back of the pedal that depressed when the brake is depressed that turns the lights on, when this is loose it keeps the lights on.

Brake lights are on continuously while you are driving. Every time the brake pedal is depressed.

The part of the car that turns on the brake lights when you apply pressure to the brake pedal is called the brake switch. Releasing pressure from the pedal causes the brake switch to break its electrical contact, turning off the lights.

I believe it is up against the firewall, just above brake pedal on the left. It is approximently the size of a cigarette pack, black in colour. It has two (2) wiring harness connections. Good Luck!!

Follow the brake pedal up behind the dash. The pedal arm ususally operates a button that turns on the lights when the pedal is pushed. The button could be stuck.

Check under dash at your brake pedal for a plunger sensor, the brake pedal may not let it be releasing. Brake pedal arm pushes it in to activate the lights

Sticking Brake LightsI had this very same problem when I owned a Nissan 300zx. There is a switch in front of the brake pedal that when the brake pedal is pressed the metal part of the pedal presses down on a little button which turns the brake lights on when pressing the pedal. What I did was I got under the dash, took a flashlight and put a little piece of tape in between the pedal and the switch. It acted as a cushion because the pedal wasn't pushing down on the switch as it was pushing on the tape and when I pressed on the pedal the lights would come on but the tape pushed the pedal back to shut the switch off. If you want to avoid all this consider having your brake pedal adjusted. If your brake lights come on still consider having your cars wiring checked out.

Usually that would be caused by a faulty brake light switch connected TO the brake pedal. If the brakes work the pedal is probably ok.

you do not adjust the brake lights check the bulbs or check switch top of brake pedal.
