It involves a little tricky manouvering under the dash to reach the switch and you need to be very aware of the orientation when fitting. PLEASE BE AWARE that you are messing with the brake pedal and if you fit this part incorrectly you could interfere with the brake pedal travel and cause a dangerous driving situation. Only fit this part once you have fully inspected the part to be removed, and preferably look at a workshop diagram. Some switches are easy some are not. Most take me 10-15 mins.

SOURCE: brake lights on GMC truck do not work replaced fuses & bulbs

ther is a switch called a brake lifgt switch that has a pin that is moved by your boot brake pedal arm.
the way it works is: when you press on the brake the brake pedal moves down and the spring in the switch pushes out closing the contacts to your brake lights the switch is located high up under the driver's side of the underside of the dash near or, on the brake pedal support replace or, adjust this switch

SOURCE: 1997 GMC Sierra Ignition Switch Replacement

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Brake Light Switch clip on 94 GMC Pickup

My 1996 Brake light clip needed to spread open with a screw driver(some what like a round spring) and with another screw driver push the switch up the pin. The switch will push the clip off the Pin. The pin has a head that needs to clear clip while the spring clip is spread open. It took me a while to figure out.

All lights work excrpt the brake lights, is that controlled by the multi switch?


the brake lights have a brake switch on the brake pedal. they do not go through the multi function switch. Did you check the brake fuses, and if they are ok make sure you have power and ground at the brake lights.

It's unlikely the turn signal switch. Try disconnecting the switch mounted directly above the brake pedal. If the light turns off the problem is in the brake switch. They commonly go bad and can be picked up at a gm dealer for about $15.
