Q: Q: Brake lights not turning off

asked by on

The brake lights are staying on.

Your brake light switch located under your brake pedal could be stuck or even electrically short to power, forcing your brake lights to stay on. Also, your brake lights themselves could be short to power as well which forces them to stay on. An electric diagnostic on your brake lights should be performed by a qualified technician to fix the problem with your lights.
