Brake lights stay on while I am driving but go off when I press the brake pedal. Then brake lights turn back on after about 10-15 seconds.

I was riding down the highway during the daytime a couple of weeks ago and a passenger had realized that both my tail lights weren't turning on when I slowed down to stop. I checked it out later on and turns out that not only do my brakes not work when I slow down, but only when I come to a complete stop do they turn on, and stay on for about 20 secs after I release my foot from the brakes. Night time is worse because my light stays on (as if my foot was already on the brake) until I actually press the brake, then they dim down like how they were suppose to be in the first place and stay dim for about 20 secs. And turn back on as if I was at a stop sign going all the way down the highway.

I have a 2007 ponitac G6 GT and the brake lights stay on all the time and go out when you press the brake pedal. There is currently a recall for 2005 and 2006 Pontiac G6's but mine is a 2007 and doesn't fall under the recall but I'm having the same issues.

I own a 2007 Pontiac G6, purchased in November 2008. After several months, I was alerted by another motorist that my vehicle's brake lights were not illuminated when I stepped on the brake but were illuminated when I was accelerating. The problem appears to be intermittent and the dealer claims to not know how to fix the problem. A recall was issued for 2005 and 2006 models (NHTSA campaign 09V036000) but not the 2007 model. This is extremely dangerous to myself and other drivers on the road.

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 and I am having the brake light issue that was recalled on the 2005 model. When I checked into it at a local dealership I was told my car did not fall under the recall because of the year. What can I do.

I was preparing to stop at a red light when I noticed the car behind me was not slowing down as much. The other car nearly hit me but managed to pull up beside me to tell me my brake lights were not working. I drove later that night and noticed in my rearview mirror that my lights were on although I was not applying the brake pedal. However, when I did apply the brakes, my lights would turn off. I have taken my car to meineke twice already and they cannot find the cause of the problem. The occurrence of this problem has been about every night that I have driven. I am unable to notice if the problem occurs during the day since I cannot see the back of my car then. I feel very unsafe driving my car because I fear someone will rear end me and it would be my fault because my brake lights do not work properly. It is very unsafe and I do not feel as if I should go pay to get it fixed when I have not done anything to cause whatever the problem may be. I have only had this car for a few months and I am worried I made the wrong choice unless I can get this problem fixed.

When we would try to shift out of park, we couldn't. then we noticed the brake lights were bright, like the brake pedal was depressed. So we depressed the brake pedal and the lights went out. Then we push on the brake pedal with alot of force and finally we shifted out of park. We followed the car down the road and the brake light was on and would turn off when the driver applied the brakes.

I almost was rear ended due to the fact my brake lights didn't work this is the third time in 2 years I've had this fixed and now the car is out of warranty im still having this same problem. What am I supposed to do its a lease that is unsafe to drive. I pay all this money to a car company and now I cant drive it.
