Q: Brake lights staing on.

asked by on

My brake lights won't turn off.

A: The brake light switch on these cars are a ...

The brake light switch on these cars are a push pin type. Where the push pin hits the brake pedal lever the manufacturer put a hole and a small rubber bumper to push on the brake light switch. Sometimes this rubber bumper falls apart with age and now there is a hole in the brake pedal lever where it was at. Now when you push on the brake the brake light switch pin will pass through the lever and never get pushed. I recommend to have a qualified mechanic check it out such as one from YourMechanic. They would be able to see if this is the case or the switch is defective.
