1994 Suburban brake lights

Brake lights won't stay on when pedal is depressed. They go on for a second or two then go off. Problem seems intermittent. Parking lights, turn signal and BU lights appear to work normal. Just brake light issue. Thanks for any help.

Where is the brake switch on the brake pedal in a 1994 gransport

If you follow up the brake pedal towards the steering column, you will see the switch.The switch can be at the front of the pedal or at the back of the pedal. It's not a difficult replacement, it's just hard to lay on your back in that small space and do the job. The part costs about $10.00. The question I have is why are you looking to replace? The faults are usually brake lights stay on which will kill your battery , or switch is bad and brake lights don't come on when pedal is depressed. I would first check for blown fuses, and blown bulbs. If you need any additional help please get back to me. GOOD LUCK FREIND.

Brake lights staying on when car is turned off 1990 geo prism

Check the adjustment on the brake light switch which is mounted to the brake pedal lever assembly. Chances are is that it is out of adjustment and needs to be can manually depress the plunger on the switch(as if your foot was off of the pedal) to see if the lights turn off. When your foot is off the brake pedal it is supposed to depress the plunger on the switch causing an open circuit (it won't allow voltage to pass through to the brake lights).

1994 Saab 900 has a ghost?

There's a little switch attached to your brake pedal, (In my old 9000 it was about halfway up above the pedal itself, haven't had that problem with my 9-3.... yet;) that can get gummed up and stick, making intermittent contact and also holding the lights on without pressure.

I just got up in there and cleaned it out really well with some WD-40. That seemed to exorcise the evil brake spirits pretty decently.
