Q: Brake light stays on

asked by on

The brake light stays on.

Hi there. Sounds to me that you have a malfunctioning brake switch. This brake switch, over time can deteriorate causing it to not function properly. You can have a mechanic sent by YourMechanic diagnose your brake lights to determine what fixes you should move forward with.
