Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to be able to help you with your break light concern, we need to know what year and model your Kia is. One thing you need to check as well is to disconnect your break light switch and see if the break light then turn off. POst back with this information and we can work from there.

Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.

The break light switch is under the dash at the top of the break pedal . I have done to investigating and have found that KIA has a recall for this problem and it calls for replacing the break light switch. They will do this for you at no charge. Contact your dealer and get it is and they will take care of this for you. See the recall in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.
