You brake light switch may be stuck in the “on” position. If it can’t be freed up, it should be replaced; a relatively simply procedure.

where would i fine the brake light switch?


#4

have someone stand behind car. you reach in and lift up the brake pedal with your hand all the wayup. if the light goes off, then then brake light switch is defective, or (more probable) the brake return spring is worn out. look up under the dash. there is either a coil spring or a Y shaped spring which pulls the pedal upp off the switch whenyou let go (or supposed to!) either a bad spring or a defective switch.
