My daughters '06 Elantra is having problems with the break lights. They remain on even when the car is turned off.

I have changes the brake switch.

I have checked the fuses.

I have checked the brake fluid.

Any ideas or suggestions? Please help!

Thanks

There's a brake light switch recall from Hyundai, covers almost all models from 2005-2007. Just go to Hyundai dealer

Try disconnecting the brake light switch and see if that puts them out. If so, the switch is faulty. If not, the brake light circuit has a short circuit to a battery supply somewhere.

Maybe the plunger pad on "brake" pedal missing

"Break" = broken / fractured

It does turn off when I disconnect the brake light switch. I replaced the switch but had the same problem. Does that mean that the switch I put in is also fault?

The plunger on the "brake" pad is working to connect and push the "brake" switch as it should. So as far as I can tell, there isn't a problem with the plunger part of the "brake" pedal.

btw, thanks for correcting or pointing out the difference of my honest typo on "break" and "brake". Just trying to post and do other things at the same time, wasn't really paying attention.

Isn't there some way to adjust the pedal and switch?

Can you physically push the switch to turn the lights off? Like you were to check if the switch works when pulled from the holder.
