Solved: Brake lights on constantly

Recommended Posts

I had an issue with my 98 boxter 2.5; the brake lights were on constantly. This happend after a brake fluid change and following brake bleeding. This involves a lot of pushing the brake pedal, and afterwards, the brake lights were on constantly.

The solution was to remove the brake switch (greased it with wd40 prior to removal which made it turn easily), and pulled the actuator rod out (it has a self adjustment feature). Then, the brake lights were back to normal.

This might keep some of you from ordering new switch, which I did (for no reason).

Thanks for sharing,

If you track your car, or just think you'll be needing to bleed your brakes, I strongly recommend the Motive Power Bleeder (available online at a bunch of places). Their instructions say to fill the bleeder tank with fluid. I simpy make sure the reservoir is full and use the pressure from the Power Bleeder to push the fluid through.

Makes brake bleeding a simple, quick one person job and alleviates the need for all the brake pedal pushing.
