Land rover discovery 2000 rear brake lights stay on while…

Customer Question
Land rover discovery 2000...

Land rover discovery 2000 rear brake lights stay on while car is running and left turn signal not working. Just had service done on car for new master cylynder and brake booster parts from centrix

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

We assumed that since the master cylnder was changed the brake fluid would be checked

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Discovery yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looking on line for some simple answers as to what can cause break lights to stay on one article said it was related to the booster and the connection to brake pedal wasnt working one said electrical system ?

No not working on it ourselves just want to know what it could be something simple maybe
Auto Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Anytime the brake booster or pedal is moved for service the brake switch needs to be reset and adjusted again or it may keep the lights on. If switch is adjusted correct then it may be defective and need replaced.
