Q: my brake lights want turn off

asked by on

I turn my car off, the brake lights are still on

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

A common cause is the brake light switch contacts are either stuck closed or the brake light switch is not properly adjusted. A short circuit in the brake light wiring is also a possibility. If you desire a resolution of this, right at your location by a mobile mechanic, the recommended service to request is a brake light circuit/switch diagnostic and repair. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this promptly diagnosed and resolved. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic because we want you to make the most of your repair dollars and help you to get the best possible results.
