Brake Lights Staying On

Not sure what's going on here. The brake lights (third light and both lower lights) are staying on from the first time I use them until I lock the car.

It's been raining a lot here, so from reading other posts I probably should check the Body Control Module....but I don't know where it is....how do you get to it?

What else should I do?

I'd be suspect of the brake light switch sticking before the Body Control Module.

I'd also guess that being a Clubman it is still under warranty meaning a trip to the dealer would be in order to let them take a look.

Welcome to M/A too!

Thanks for the reply and wamr welcome Nathan. Unfortunately, it's out of warranty - I have 60,000 miles on it. I'll check the brake switch - that makes sense.

They stay on from the time I insert the key to when I take the key out.

60,000 miles but when was it put in service? I would still go to the dealer and see if they can help you with repairing for free as a policy adjustment. They have the latitude to do that. Be extra nice

Brake Light Problem

It's probably a stuck brake light switch. I suffered from this about 3 months ago and just today it re-occurred. The local dealer is gonna be getting a call first thing tomorrow...
