at the top of the pedal area there is a switch that opens when you put your foot on the brake pedal. what could of happened is the switch may be out of alignment causing the switch to be permanantly on. just adjust it. hope this helps
asking where is it? its located on the brake pedal up near the pedal bracket. when pedal is depressed, the switch completes contact to power to brake lights. If you look at it, the plunger will move out when pedal depresses.
Under the dash below the steering wheel and above the brake pedal there is a switch. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is activated and the brake lights are lit. It sounds like the switch has loosened and needs to be slightly adjusted and retightened. The switch is held in place by a single screw and nut. This is also the adjusting point for the switch. If you push upward on the brake pedal the lights will probably go out. That slight movement will show you what a small adjustment is most likely needed to correct your problem.
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift lock actuator is the logical culprit. Check to see if it's getting voltage when the brake pedal is depressed. If yes: the unit is either faulty, weak or stuck. I can provide wire numbers and colors if necessary. I may need the engine size and Trans. code found on drivers door sticker. Good luck! Aoogha
Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
Check behind your brake pedal. I don't remember what the parts were called but the same thing happened to me. When you put your foot on the brake there is a plastic or rubber circle attached to the brake pedal that comes in contact with a switch. It causes the brake lights to come on. When you take your foot off the brake it turns the switch off and the brake light goes off. Over time this rubber or plastic circle gets worn and it is still in contact with the switch so it remains on. When this first happened to me I was able to adjust the switch so that the pad came completely away from the switch when I took my foot off the brake. The second time it happened I had to replace the pad on the pedal. I actually made my own because it looked like it was part of the pedal. I also had to replace the switch another time. The switch cost under $20.00 from a parts store.
