    I have already changed the brake switch before. It appears the brake pedal needs adjustment.

I have a 2002 X-Type. Just had this same problem.

A couple of months ago, I noticed that the break lights were always on, so I checked the pedal and the break light sensor was detached. I put it back in place (use a light, find the position to insert it, then turn 90 degrees and voila).

Then I had this problem of having the break lights on when I pressed the clutch pedal. After reading the previous post, I tried lifting the break pedal to see if the problem was solved and yes. So when I checked the break light sensor I noticed that the piece that attach it to the frame showed a little wear. And the pedal was moving for about 2 mm.

So I put tape on the pedal where the switch makes contact as to rise the contact area for 1.5 or 2 mm and that fixed the problem.

Good luck!

Hi,

I have just bought a 54 plate x tyoe and I have the same problem. If I hold the brake pedal up and dip the clutch the brake lights do not come on so I assume it is a sensor issue. Did you ever get this problem resolved?

I don't know for certain on this model and make car but many have a solenoid on the shift lever that holds it in park unless the brake pedal is pressed. Keeps people from dropping in gear without having a foot on the brake to hold the car.

Since your brake lights also don't work I would look into the brake light switch that is under the dash on the brake pedal. There could be one switch that operates both the lights and a solenoid if any.

I cannot put the gear on park


Hi,

Without knowing which vehicle you have, you should first try placing your foot of the brake pedal then shifting into PARK. If this still doesn't work, keep your foot on the brake pedal and have an assistant check to see if your brake lights are working - if no brake lights either, then your brake pedal switch is faulty.

If your brake lights are working ok, then there may be a problem with either the gear linkage to the transmission, or possibly the transmission range switch.

BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN CLUTCH IS DEPRESSED


The bracket that holds the pedals becomes loose sometimes, letting the brake move slightly when you press the clutch. Check for that movement, there is an adjustment for the brake switch, the switch is on the brake pedal under tha dash. It can be pushed in or out which ever is necessary to get the brake lights off.

Check the pedal assembly bolts they may be loose or a weld has broken under dash . Check under hood have some one depress pedals watch for movement that may not be normal .

Replaced clutch but now hard to shift into gear. will go but hard to shift. heard there was a safety on these that if brake lite not coming on will not go into gear properly.


If it's going into gear hard it's most likely because the clutch is not disengaging enough. Do you have a lot of free play? Does the clutch start to grab with the pedal real close to the floor? If so, check the the nylon bushing under the dash where the pushrod for the clutch master cylinder attaches to the arm. Is the pedal real spongy, is there air in the hydraulic system? Another posibility is that you damaged the pilot bearing causing it to drag and it keeps trying to turn the trany. If you get the rolling a little then try to put it into gear, will it go in easier? If so the clutch is dragging. There is nothing with the brake lights that will cause it to shift hard. With an automatic trany the brake lights will unlock the torque converter. Also with a 4X4 and automatic trany and electric shift on the transfer case, the transfer will not shift unless the trany is in "N" and your foot is on the brake. There is nothing on a manual set up that anything to do with brake lights and shifting.

My brake lights are no longer working on my 2003 Jaguar X type. What fuse number would be associtated with them?


most of the time if the brake lights don't work,
it's will be the switch on the brake pedal. You will find it under the dash where the brake pedal is. all it is a small button will two wire coming from it.

You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
