Thanks mikemt an I see the button there but when I went to get the switch it wasnt wat im lookin at it was white an didn have that button im lookin at on the pedal is it under the dash cause does not look...


Hi, you may be looking at the cruise control release switch. The stop light switch is behind the pedal as shown below. You're right--this is not an easy fix. After replacing, you need to make up a special tool to adjust it.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the three fasteners from the left side insulator panel.
  3. Slide the steering shaft protective cover towards the cowl.
  4. Remove the vacuum hose at the cruise control cut OFF switch, if so equipped.
  5. Remove the stoplamp switch-to-steering column bracket retaining pin.
  6. Unplug the electrical connector.
  7. Push the switch arm to the left and towards the cowl to disconnect switch-to-pedal arm. Release the snap clip and remove the switch.

To install:
  1. Install the switch and push up until it is seated into the top snap clip.
  2. Attach the electrical connectors.
  3. Connect the switch to the pedal.
  4. Install the switch-to-steering column retaining pin.
  5. Connect the vacuum hose if equipped with cruise control.
  6. Install the steering shaft protective sleeve.
  7. Adjust the stoplamp switch.
  8. Install the left sound insulator, connect the negative battery cable and check switch operation.

Fig. Fig. 4: Adjusting the brake light switch-1992 vehicle shown

  1. Depress the brake pedal (push down), as far as possible and hold.
  2. Using a stiff wire with a hooked end, gently pull the switch set lever forward (toward the front of the vehicle), and listen for an audible click that indicates release of the automatic adjuster.

If no click is heard, release the brake pedal and repeat the above procedure.
  1. After release of the automatic adjuster, slowly pull the brake pedal all the way rearward. Listen for the switch to ratchet into the set position (setting the brake light switch). At least three clicks of the ratchet should be heard.
  2. Inspect the operation of the brake lights, as follows:
    1. The brake lights should light at maximum brake pedal travel of 1 1 / 4 in. (32mm) and throughout the remainder of the pedal travel.
    2. If the brake lights do not light, repeat the switch adjuster procedure one more time.

No brake lights need to replace brake light switch


Its on the top of the brake pedal. Unplug the connector and check for 12 volts firstif you have a multimeter set it 20 DC volts you should get 12 at connector. If thats good set the meter to OHMS low scale take jumper leads connect to switch terminals aliagator clips then clip to the probes on the meter and push the brake pedal the reading should change if the switch is good from open when depressed to closed when no force applyed to the brake pedal. If there is no change then the switch needs to be replaced. Remove the clip from the pin that slides through the pedal and the switch slide out the pin install new switch reconnect the connector slide pin back in and install the clip. check to see if brake lights work

No brake lights 1985 f-150


The problem more than likely exists with the brake light switch. It is located under the steering column on the brake pedal shaft. There should be a kotter pin or clip that holds it in place. Remove pin or clip and carefully slide the brake rod off the brake pedal shaft. Disconnect wiring and remove completely. To install, just simply reverse the order of removal. On some model Fords, the brake light switch slides over a rod on the brake pedal shaft. If this is the case, you will need to pull forward on the brake pedal shaft (slightly) to remove the switch. Keep me informed if possible. Any other help, feel free to contact me.

Passanger side brake light issue


Yes! It is a faulty turn signal assembly. You can try actuating the hazards several times, to try cleaning the contacts but if there is no change then replace it. In case you want to know, the wires from the brake switch, go up into the turn-signal assembly then out to the tail-lights. To fix it, disconnect the battery, you will need some tools. A steering wheel puller, a steering shaft compression tool, 1/2" drive ratchet, metric sockets, cir-clip pliers, a couple of small picks, #2 philips head screwdriver, and some torque-head screwdrivers. carefully pull off the horn cover( may have a couple of scews holding it from the other side), unplug the horn wire (push and twist), remove the cir-clip, remove the nut, mark the area where the steering wheel and shaft meet (use white-out), press off the steering wheel, Compess the shaft, remove the retaining clip(with the picks), remove horn spinner base, remove turn-signal assembly. I need to step back alittle bit, the plug, to the turn-signal, is half-way down the steering column, to unplug it you need to remove the lower dash panel, the bolts holding the column up inplace. The plug is in clear sight but the wiring harness is inside a plastic sheath, you'll see what I'm talking about.
