2002 Volkswagen Passat Q&A

2002 Volkswagen Passat Question: My brake lights stays on and my brakes won't come completely up.

My brake lights stays on and my brakes won't come completely up. I have to place something under the brakes just to make sure my lights turn off when I turn off the car when I have arrived to my destination. What can it be.? N thanks for our help -
Answer 1
Look under your dash where the brake pedal ends. There should be a return spring that holds your pedal in the up position. Goodluck -
