Afternoon,

Noticed today when getting out of the van that the brake lights were stuck on. That's engine off and keys out of the ignition.

Pulled the fuse to save the battery, but not sure what's gone wrong?

Checked the brake light switch above the pedal, *seems* ok, had an issue with it before so ordered a new one anyways to replace it.

Pre-emptive, but if that doesn't fix it anyone know what it could be?

I only ask because the last time the brake light switch played up I got a warning light on the dash, not got one this time. And, the lights staying on even with the keys out of the van is a new one...

Cheers for any help!

The brake lights will work anyway without the keys in the ignition, that's normal.

It might be a safety feature. If you were parked at the side of a road and a vehicle approached from behind a dab or two on the brake pedal can give a signal of your presence.

Ta for the quick reply, makes sense I suppose! Hopefully the new switch will have it all sorted then...

New brake light switch in, a much better version than the original! Much more solid...all fixed.
