Brake lights on saab 900 2.3 95 model year

I have recently purchased the above car. since owning the vehicle the brake lights do not work. I have changed the bulbs and also looked for the switch mentioned in earlier problems. the switch does not exist. all other lights work even normal rear lights which operate off the same bulb. Any suggestions????

Have you checked the fuse? In my 1991 SAAB the fuse (#31) was bad.

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

95 Saab 900S brake lights stopped working also have an issue getting the transmission out of park


Most likely the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal has failed
OR....
Your HAZARD / Tail fuse has blown.

Underneath the dash at the top of the brake pedal locate the brake light switch. Remove the connector / wires on the back of the switch and then jumper across the 2 pins to make the brake lights come on. Start the car with the brake on and try shifting the car out of park.

Just today had brake booster replaced. Arriving home after dark, brake lights would not turn off! Tried removing fuses-etc. - nothing works. Help! Battery will drain overnight. Thank you!


Your brake light switch is stuck. It's mounted just under dash above your brake pedal. Sounds like it wasn't adjusted properly. You can disconnect your battery for the night and reattach in AM to get back to repair shop for proper fix. Remember when reattaching cables, NEGATIVE CABLE GOES ON LAST

Glow plugs warning light + brake lights on


I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
Good luck

Brake lights don't work


it could be a faulty brake switch.

it is located at the brake pedal. the brake pedal itself is the one pushing the brake switch to turn it off. it is a normally closed switch.

Have you put the correct caliper on each side?
Are bleed screws facing upward?
If so you will probably need to have brakes pressure bled to push through air in ABS system.
