Brake light not turning off it is either a contact or the brake light switch that need replacement. In your case , if brake lights go off playing with the pedal , that means that the switch must be replaced. The brake light switch it is usually located behind the pedal and gets activated when you push the brake pedal.

Red brake light stays on


Many cars have a switch that rests on the arm for the brake peddle that self adjusts. If something gets stuck between the switch and the peddle it can adjust the switch too far way from the peddle arm. When the object that got in the way falls out or is removed the switch will no longer contact the peddle arm and the brake lights will stay on. You would probably need to remove the panel cover for the bottom of the dashboard to access the brake peddle are and brake light switch. Once you see the switch depress the peddle with your hand and push the switch toward the peddle are. It shouldn't be too hard to push back into place and will probably make a series of clicks as it moves. Once the switch has been pushed in release the brake peddle and the switch will adjust itself back to where it should be.

2007 chevy malibu, when brake peddle is engaged the brake lights go out but you remove you foot from the brake peddle the break lights come on and stay on untill you touch the brake peddle again, I am...


That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder break lights stay on although car is off.


Check the brake light switch. It is in the drivers floor board, behind the brake peddle. The switch looks like a box with a button on it. the brake peddle is pressed, and presses the brake light switch. If the switch sticks, the brake lights will stay on.

Brake lights don't stay on when I press on brake pedal. I have a 1998 chevy tahoe. Can someone help?


Stay on or go on when brake peddle is used?  If there is no brake lights check the fuse, and there is a brake light switch by the blrake peddle arm. Check the wire and check to see if the switch need to be re adjusted. Worst youmight have to replace the switch. Good Luck

Brake lights


under the brake peddle is a switch. Lift the brake peddle upwards and you will see that the brake light goes out [requires two people; one to hold the peddle up, other to view the brake lights]. Restrengthen the spring tension on the brake peddle.

Should the lights remain ON after you lift the brake peddle up, unplug one of the wires to the brake peddle switch. At this point, the brake lights should be off. This basically will determine whether your switch is shorted or is just a peddle pressing down on the switch due to a bad spring.
