My brake light switch is broken


Its on the brake pedel you need to remove a clip from the end of the pin that slides through the pedel and the brake switch then the pin then the connecter . Install in reverse order .
However before removeing anything you should look to see if there is an adjustment for the switch . You see the brake light olny comes on if you push on the pedel most have adjustments on them because its an on demand thing so the light could be on if your not pushing the pedel or it could not come if you are pushing the pedel or it could not come on at all pushing or not pushing to pedel .You need to figure witch condution you actully have .

My stop lights wont go off. Stay on all the tima.


There is a button above your brake pedel that probably isn't being pushed in all the way by the brake pedel to shut them off. Try pulling up on the brake pedel and have someone watch to see if they go off when you do that. If so the button for the brake pedel needs to be adjusted so it shut them off when the pedel is not pushed.

Wll not come out of park & no brake light


The problem you have is probably the button above the brake pedel is stuck in. This button ativates the brake light and will allow the car to come out of park when you press the brake. The easiest way to fix this would be to get down by the brake pedel and find the button and get some electronics spray and try to clean the button so it will come out. It is stuck in so the car does not realize you are pushing the brake. Clean the button press the brake pedel in and work the button in and out till its free. It it don't free up you will have to replace it. Good luck

Brake lights


I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed
