The switch should be located on a bracket just above the brake pedal , usually either clipped in or threaded into the bracket ,,removal will be easy but when fitting the new one be careful to adjust the clearance between the switch and pedal correctly so that the brake lights come on as soon as the brake pedal is pressed ,,,,usually you can feel the click of the switch as it activates ,so adjust the clearance until you have a little play before the click ,make sure when finished to have someone check the lightest come on as you press the brake pedal lightly

2006 Dodge Grand Caravan All 3 brake lights don't work. Replaced burnt out high center bulb, checked fuse under hood, replaced Stop Light Switch.


Is there power to the stop light switch? You never say any electrical testing was done. Use a 12 volt test light to check this. You can buy one for about $5 from auto parts store.

1997 nissan pathfinder le 3.3l - Brake lights won't turn off - replaced stop switch and relay combo already. any ideas?


The brake switch will stop all current to the brake lights. As soon as the brake pedal moves just off of its fully up position, the switch makes contact and passes current on to the brake lights. You can operate it by hand to check if everything is right. izzit adjustable? The switch is the last thing in the path to the brake bulbs, so it has to work right, right off the brake pedal!

Move into a position where you can easily see underneath the driver's side of the Ford pickup's dashboard. How you do this depends on your physical size and dexterity.

I have a 2000 chevy 2500 and the tail lights, tag lights and brake lights have stopped working, I checked the bulbs and they are good, fuses are good. Have not replaced the brake relay under the hood. Do I...


check for power at the wires going intop the tail lights, real common that the circuit board is bad, but unlikely both at the same time. The tag, tail lights and brakes are 2 different systems. Do the turn signals work normally? if so the wiring from the turn signal switch to the brake lights is GOOD. the stop light switch had\s a ORANGE wire that should have 12V if not ck STOP LPS fuse, when brake pedal is depressed, the WHITE wire is 12V (at the stop light switch) if that is OK, the turn signal switch COULD be bad. The wiring harness plug is near the back left under the tailgate, see if that is disconnected?

My brake light is staying on, what is the problem?


Hello Mr Mixer.

When this happens it is usually a bad brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal lever.
Easy to replace if you are a handy fellow.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Disconnect electrical connector for stop light switch.
  3. Remove bolt and lock nuts attaching brake pedal to stop light switch and push rod.
  4. Remove stop light switch and bushings from brake pedal.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.

This problem drove me crazy for 2 weeks. Then the car just stopped running. It would turn over but it would not fire. I replaced the crank and camshaft sensors. That did nothing. I replaced the ignition switch and the car started right up. So if your dash indicator lights start doing a light show for you and your gages jump around or just stop working. Try replacing the ignition switch.

2004 Landrover Freelander stop/reverse light fuse keeps blowing


I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

My 2005 mazda tribute brake lights will not turn off


The stop light switch is sticking. If it's a mechanical one that is operated by the movement of the brake pedal the replace the switch. If a hydraulic one is fitted, remove one wire and see if the stop lights go off. If so then replace the hydraulic switch.
