SOURCE: possible brake sensor problem, cannot

First off, check the fuse. If it is blown, I would atleast check the electrical connector for the brake switch. Remember to never replace a fuse with a fuse with a higher amperage rating.

If the fuse isn't blown, it's still a fairly cheap and easy fix. The brake switch is about $20-30. If you look up from the brake pedal, you'll see a yellow pin that resembles a grenade pin. Pull that and the sensor should slide off. Carefully disconnect the electrical connector and look closely at it, if it seems burned at all on the clip side, have the connector replaced as well.

Vauxhall Astra 1.8 Sri turns over not starting brake lights jammed on coil pack seems ok no fault codes in system


Ok may be more than one fault here
Firstly the brake lights may be down to a fulty brake light switch
this is under the brake pedal.
Secondly the Starting issue could be several things
Fuel cut off switch engaged
Faulty spark plugs
Sticking/faulty starter motor
Fuel filter blocked (common reason for non starting and doesent give a fault code).
Fuel pump faulty or faulty/loose wiring at pump
Unlikley to be anything to do with the ecu as it turns over and no fault codes.

Brake Light on Dash


Have you tried bleeding the brakes? Sometimes air in the lines causes the break trouble light to come on.

My brake lights wont turn off even when the truck is and my cruise wont engage either????


Your cruise won't engage because your brake lights are on permanently.
These are on permanently probably because your brake switch is faulty.
It's located near the top of your brake pedal.

Top worked fine yesterday but today tried to let down only clicked


It is a hydraulic pump that applies pressure to the 2 hydraulic pistons to raise & lower the top. So, check for something obstructing movement first.

The convertible top:
  • is motor-driven.
  • requires parking brake engaged to complete circuit for operation.
  • is equipped with a back window glass (42006) . The back window glass is permanently attached to the folding top back window curtain (52500) and cannot be opened.

Brake light comes while braking with no apparent cause


The pulsating sounds like rotors warped from overheating. As far as light goes, may be float or sensor at master cylinder faulty & making light trip.
