brake light on while in gear
I have seen lots of problems with cars but this one is new to me. My brake lights work just fine while my car is in park: meaning when I press the brake they turn on (all exept the third brake light it doesn't seem to be working). The odd part is, when i put it in gear the brake lights stay on until the car is put back in park. What could be the proble? I know there is a brake "switch" by the brake pedal, however why would it work in park fine but screw up in gear?
