Tail Lights won't go out

Hey guys,

The tail lights on my wifes 64 dart won't go out, the only way is to unhook the battery. I've gone over eveything I can think of but haven't found the problem.

Any ideas on what to check?

Thanks,

Dion

have you tried to pull up on the pedal? sometimes the brake pedal on my chevelle needs alittle nudge up to get the brake lights to go off. i think the return spring is alittle weak after more than 30 years of service.

first thing you have to check is to see if it is tail or brake lights. if it's brake lights then check the brake light switch like everyone said. but if it's tail lights,check the headlight switch for melted block or wiring. good luck!
