3rd brake light staying on (different issue)
I've been combing the forums for 2 weeks now and have tried everything I can find to fix this but have had no luck...
So here goes...
First off the issue I am having is the third brake light stays on after I touch the brake pedal. The other brake lights are working normally as many million times that I try but the top (third brake) light stays on until I pull the plug or the fuse under the hood that just controls THAT light.
At first it was intermittent where I would just check it any time I would park to make sure it went out......If it was still on I could start the car....push the pedal down a few times and most of the time it would go out on its own...But now like i said it stays on all the time so I have pulled the fuse for now.
I have already changed the brake pedal switch, the fuses, the relay (under the hood), and I also tried the grease on the module connectors like everyone talks about. Still no luck. I even tried a "used" module since I have a friend at a junk yard and same problem with that as well. I am at wits end right now...
I was going to take it to the dealer to see if the switch needed programmed but I would think if the other two lights are working normally than the middle one should be the same....Or am I wrong about this. Could the switch be like a "2" position where it sends 2 seperate signals to the brake lights?
Please if any one has any ideas please let me know ...I hate to take it to the dealer as it is out of warranty and they will just try changing parts and charging me for them whether they get the problem fixed or not!
