Q: Q: Brake lights won't turn off

asked by on

The brake lights are stuck on and won't turn off.

Hello. The brake switch controls the brake lights in a vehicle. When this switch is working properly, it moves in and out which allows the brake lights to turn on and off when you engage your brakes. When the brake switch malfunctions, it could cause the brake lights to get stuck and not turn off. The brake light switch should be replaced by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.
