Q: Light not turning off

A: Hello. A common problem for your vehicle is...

Hello. A common problem for your vehicle is the lights staying on due to a brake switch malfunction. The switch tells the car when to turn on the brake lights and when to turn them off. In most cases, the switch will have to be replaced and can by done by a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic. Overtime, the switch will age and become unable to make contact at the point that tells the vehicle to turn off the lights.
