Hi,
Is it just the rear lights or are the fronts on as well?

just brake lights
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks.
Please look under the driver side dash at the brake pedal bracket. Operate the brake pedal with your hand and watch where it contacts the stop light switch... is there an open hole where the stop light switch would contact the pedal bracket, or is there a rubber pad there that touches the switch plunger?

rubber pad
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks.
Please unplug the stop light switch... do the lights go out?

Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
It looks like we must have missed each other.
If the lights go out when you unplug the stop light switch, you will either have a faulty switch or a switch out of adjustment. With the rubber pad intact on the pedal, those are the only two possibilities if the lights go out when unplugged. You can try adjusting the switch closer to the pedal and see if it improves, otherwise replace the stop light switch.
If the lights do NOT go out when the stop light switch is unplugged, then there is wiring damage somewhere after the stop light switch.
This is highly unlikely though... it is far more likely the switch is either faulty or out of adjustment.
