Question about 2002 Infiniti I35

Open Question

Need to find fuse for brake light for 2002 Infiniti I35... brake lights coming on all the time and drain battery. Must be electrical problem because pedal switch completely bypassed.

Brake lights coming on all the time. Thought it was the pedal pad being broken but lights come on even with pedal switch removed from circuit so it is being bypassed. Apparently no fuse for this circuit, MFG may have installed nonremovable fusible link in harness instead. Will have to remove all lightbulbs in tail section and rear window light to be able to charge battery and be able to move the car. YouTube video said to look for 15 amp fuse labeled STOP L. which doesn't exist on my car. Would also like insight on just how the switch is being bypassed for the braking system. No burnt parts of odors. Only use car 1-2 x a week so I don't want to spend hundreds of $$$$$$ having to hunt down ghosts with the electrical system. I ride a bike most of the time so the car is only on rainy days and when I have to carry stuff.

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: replaced braked pads - now VDC and Slip Lights are on

I would take the car to almost any auto parts store and ask them to check the ODB II computer for codes and to reset the "Check engine light". Get the code that they tell you and it should go a long way to pointing you in the right direction to fixing this problem. It might also be that when you pumped the brakes that you somehow set a code in the computer from the ABS system and now that you have the brakes pumped up and working correctly resetting the Check engine light might fix your problem.

Good luck! Write back with any code you get and I'll see if I can help you figure out what the problem might be.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: tail lghts/brake lights

Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on

If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

Why want my brake lights go off?

Perhaps it's the fault in the brake light activation switch off the brake pedal. It's basically a plunger switch which makes contact with the brake pedal arm to trigger the tail lights. I once had this problem with a GM, but with no brake lights activating at all. Have a look underneath the dash and check for that plunger because maybe the plunger is sort of stuck and won't extend far enough to kill the circuit for the tail lights or maybe the spring is broken or the contact pad is shot. Worth a check anyways.

Most probably the high intensity filaments in the tail lights burned out. (It happened to me and I thought it was the brake pedal switch, but both bulbs failed almost at the same time!)

Remove the bulbs first to check the filaments with an ohmeter, if good, then it is either the pedal switch or the wiring, or even the ground connection. Amclaussen.
