help brake lights on and won't go off!!!!!

Recommended Posts

My brake lights are on and will not go off with applying pressure to the brakes or with the ebrake down all the way. I went under the car and pushed on the switch on the brake pedal and it didn't turn the lights off or on. I remember the connector popping off a couple of times before and there is 1 spring in it, however some time ago I found a spring on the ground about the same size. Are there two springs in that connector. Also does it matter what way I put the connector on? there are two tabs. I tried flipping it 180 and nothing. ARGGGGG

What is the problem? On another note my cruize also doesn't work but I haven't thought anything of it. A notable problem with that was said to be the switch under there as well. Anything???? Am I messing with the wrong switch, and is there another that might be simply stuck or something? I don't want to drive the car with the lights on for liability reasons, and it is my daily driver help!!!!!!!!!

It does not matter which way the switch is oriented.

I would unmount the switch and work the mechanism to see if it is sticking. Then see if the lights have gone out. If not then it sounds like you have a bad switch.

The cruise probably does not work as it is seeing a brake on condition which automatically disconnects the cruise control.

It was in fact the switch, and silly me for taking the connector off the clutch switch! What does that switch do anyways?, as there is another switch that actually is the depress to start switch. BTW as I posted before about my cruise not working, it magically does now YEAY!!! I am one happy camper for 15 bucks. Thanks guys. Sean
