    I HAVE A 2016 CASCADIA THAT HAS THE BRAKE LIGHTS ON EVEN WITH WITH KEY OFF . PUT NEW SAM CHASSIS MODULE ON HAD ALL MODULES REPROGRAMMED . FOUND ABS WIRES ONE GROUND AND BATT. POWER WAS SHORTED TOGETHER IN THE HARNESS UDER DASH . THE GROUND WENT THE SAM CHASSIS MODULE (BLK) AND THE (ORG) WENT TO THE INSTURMENT CLUSTER . THAT FIX DID NOT FIX BRAKE LIGHT PROBLEM .

    Drain out all your air. If they go out, brake pedal is sticking. If not, test your brake light switch.

    Im driving a 5 ton truck, it's a lame auto-trans but has no Park. You leave it in neutral and use the e-brake as a parking brake...only problem is, when the truck is off, all the lights are off and the doors are locked BUT THE BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON!!! The only way to turn them off is to disengage the ebrake, but then you are just in neutral, and you can't leave it in drive as it rolls...is this how they built the truck? this can not be normal, how are the brake lights even attached to the emergency/parking brake? The mechanic couldn't figure it out, so he installed a battery kill switch so we just turn off all the power when we park for more than 5 mins...please tell me something is wrong and can be fixed?

    Confused..............

    E-brake and parking brake are generally the same thing, just different terms.
