Q: My right rear brake light stays on, even when the lights are off and I turn off the car. 2013 Hyundai Elantra

asked by on

My right rear brake light stays on, even when the lights are off and I turn off the car. 2013 Hyundai Elantra. Some people have told me it might be a fuse or the brake pedal light switch, but to me it's weird that only one light (right) stays on; not both.

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is possible that the circuit for that particular brake light is shorted to power somehow. I would recommend having an electrical systems inspection performed by a qualified professional to determine the exact cause of this issue. This will involve using a digital multimeter to check the resistance and voltage of the wires associated with that particular brake light. Once the source of the issue has been found it can be remedied.
