Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector.
To replace the switch, remove the connector, then pull the mount clip off, and the switch should just slide off the post. Installation is the reverse of removal. You may have to adjust the new switch.
It sounds like either the brake light switchis out of adjustment or the awitch has failed and is stuck on. The switch is located under the dash near the top of the brahe pedal arm. To replace, diisconnect the plug that connects the wiring to the switch., loosen locknut and unscrew the switch from the mounting bracket. Installation is the reverse procedure. Adjust by screwing switch until operating plunger is fully depressed without moving pedal arm and then tightening lock nut. Chec k that lights operate when pedal depressed and extinguish when pedal released.
The switch is located above the brake pedal, about six inches. Sometimes there is a rubber stopper attached to the brake pedal assembly that closes the switch. If it is missing, nothing pushes the switch. Put a small bolt through the hole with a nut.
Locate the brake switch up above the brake pedal. Push in on plunger and check if brake lights go out. This switch can be unplugged and removed from its spot at the pedal. Then you can pull out plunger and reset it, put back in its spot, and let pedal readjust to the appropriate travel. It should automatically set to correct stroke length after pulling plunger outward to its furthest length. If this switch, or its adjustment is not to blame, post again. I will help more if needed.
Hold the bid nut in a spanner and loosen it off. Still holding the nut, put a screwdriver into the slot and turn it slowly. Tighten the nut again. Now check the brake lights, and just keep fiddling until you get it right.
look for the brake light switch, it is located under your dash board, beside the brake pedal pivot, or at the end of your brake pedal arm. it is a round metal object with two wire connector sticking out. you may either adjust the nut enough for the pedal to turn off the switch, or if it is grounded. replace the brake light switch.
