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.

When you replaced the brake light switch did you adjust it so that it contacts when it should?
It isn't enough to just replace it, you need to adjust the pedal height to specifications in order to make the brake lights work correctly.

Brake lights not working. Niether stop lamps or overhead brake light bar work. All other rear lights work. Fuses for both lights are OK.


The most common problem for this fix is a New Replacment Brake Light Switch. It is located and mounted to the brake pedal assembly.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

When you press the brake and release the pedal, the break light stays on. Can you tell me what part do I need to fix the problem?


2 different parts to check. First, find the switch that is touching the arm that holds your brake pedal. This is your brake switch. Pull the connector off the switch. If the brake lights go out, the switch is the problem. Make sure it is adjusted so that the pedal pushes in the switch when you let off the brake. If it does, then the switch is not closing properly and should be replaced. If the pedal arm is not pushing the button in on the switch, try to adjust it so that it does, or get some help adjusting it.
Now, if your switch is OK, but the brake lights are still on, find the brake light relay in the engine compartment fusebox. Pull out the relay and see if the light go out. If yes, the relay is stuck closed or shorted. Replace the relay. Any questions, please let us know.

I have an 1986 toyota pick-up and my emergency brake light wont go off.... whats wrong with it


under the e/brake there is a switch it actuates the light, i would say that it is corroded/stuffed. take off the h/brahe surround and you should be able to see two elec wires if not the switch itself, if you just want the light off cut one of the wires and tape it up, this will brake the circuit and diable the light, or if you want it fixed properly, replace the switch. hope this has been handy.

check the brake switch located on a bracket under your driver side, on top of the brake pedel check for power, if power depress on your pedal see if there's nopower on the other side of the switch then replace the switch. I think it is the switch.

My brake lights won't turn off on my 1989 Toyota Corolla, how can I fix this problem without going to a mechanic?


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.
