Brake light question
I have a 87 asp, the problem is, when you hit the brakes the brake light stays on, even if you turn off the key. The only way to get the light off is to pull the brake relay, and if you leave the relay unpluged the brake light works fine.
Anyone know what this problem is.

The brake light stays on with front or rear lever. I switched the relay with another like one, but the light stays on with it also. With out the relay plugged in, the tail light indicater light on the dash will come on when you hit the brakes, but goes out when released.

Check the connections and wires at the brake light-and-tailight sensor, follow the wires from the sensor back to the tail/brake lights. This sensor is powered through the brake relay, and then the sensor provides power to the tail/brake lights.
