I just bought a 2000 Daewoo Nubira and found out that when depressing the brake pedal I have no brake lights. All other lights work. Can I replace the brake light switch myself, and will this solve the problem?
Re: No brake lights when depressing the brake pedal
This can be caused by a number of things. You just have to eliminate each one.
Light Globe Replace one with a new one if it works replace both.
Fuse Check fuse in fuse panel under bonnet.
Brake pedal switch Unclip wire connector, check with circuit volt light indicator, Ohm meter or other continuity tester.
Wiring from pedal switch to light globe As above (maybe cut squashed or broken wiring)
Hope this helps

Pull UP on the brake pedal while someone watches the brake lights. If they go off (they should), you need to check the adjustment. It should be adjustable to make contact when the pedal is slightly depressed.
after fitting new brake pads you must "bed them in"
by doing a few high speed brake applications of medium to hard brake applications
say 80 km/h hit the brakes down to 40km/h giving a pause in between to let brakes cool down again
if pedal feels spongy or you have to pump pedal up to get a high brake pedal you might have air in brake lines
you should allways bleed brakes after replacement incase of air ingress into system

Sounds like the park/brake shift interlock switch is bad.
"An actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion
of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives
a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the
module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that
indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that
it can be shifted out of Park."
It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO
switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.
To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key
to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press
the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the
