This is what I call the brake light “bug.” There’s a problem with my brake light so I don’t think I can find the problem. I go over to the brake light and I notice it’s blinking on and off and I’m not able to get it to go away. I try to adjust the light but when I leave it on the dashboard for a long period of time, the light keeps blinking.
It’s not just my brake light. My headlights and taillights also keep blinking. The problem is, as soon as I turn off the engine, my brake lights and taillights go away. I’ve tried many adjustments but none seem to work. I have this problem on and off for over a month and Ive been on this car for over a year. Its something I have to get fixed.
While there isn’t any definitive answer to why your brake lights and taillights keep on blinking, we have a few suggestions. We think brake lights and taillights may be some of the only ways to know when you need to turn off your engine. If you are traveling on long trips or in heavy traffic, you may be able to tell by your brake lights and taillights that you need to stop.
I am not sure why you get on the wrong side of the wheel. Maybe the brakes are too slow or the taillights too fast. Perhaps they are too far apart. Maybe the brake lights are bent too much or the taillights are too light. The answer is not possible, but it seems a little like the brake lights are too far apart.
The reason your brake lights stay on might be that they are located on the front of your front brake disc, on the inside. When you are pulling up to a stop, you may have just enough time to turn off your engine and then put the car in reverse, but if you are on a long trip and your engine starts at a high enough speed, it will probably take time for your engine to slow down.
I see nothing wrong with my brake light being on. The lights do not bother me. I actually noticed a tiny hole at the center of my brake disc at the end of one of my tires. It was the same hole that appeared after I pulled it up to the curb. It’s a tiny bit more than I had expected. However, my brake light would light up if I just pulled it up to the curb.
My brake light was on at the time I pulled it up to the curb. I didn’t use it at all.
I have a feeling it was a bad idea to use your brake light at all. But it’s not like it’s the end of the world. When I came to work this morning my car was still running fine, so I figure my brake light is just a symptom of a bad engine.
I think what you might be experiencing is a symptom of a bad sensor or bad wiring. You should definitely get it checked out.
