Q: Brake lights staying on.

asked by on

My brake lights won't turn off and are staying on.

A: Brake lights staying on after the pedal is ...

Brake lights staying on after the pedal is released is usually caused by the brake switch near the pedal being misadjusted or missing altogether. It could also be a short to power on the input side of the circuit. Have a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, visually inspect your vehicle for the cause of lights staying on.
