The switch may not be mounted directly on the brake pedal. You'll have to check under the dash and possibly feel for it mounted in a bracket that is in line with the pedal. If your brake lights are stuck on you may just have to adjust the switch.

My 98 gmc jimmy will not shift out of park


possibly the neutral safety switch connected to the brake pedal is bad. when you apply foot to brake , shouls hear a click with key in run position, this would be the safety solenoid retracting itself from shift linkage, allowing shift lever to move. try pumping rapidly, but easily the brake pedal to see if you can hear click, and or shift from park.

Brake lights don't work how to fix


When a vehicle's brake lights all go out at the same time, the culprit is usually the
"stoplight Switch" which is operated by depressing the brake pedal.

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.
If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Unplug the wires.
  • Replace with a new switch. Adjust as needed.
  • Plug the wires back in.
If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:
  • Mark and disconnect the wires.
  • Unscrew the switch.
  • Screw the replacement switch in.
  • Reconnect the wires
Here's a picture of the "Stoplight Switch", aka Brake Light Switch - 1995 GMC K1500 Sierra

Brake lights (stoplights) are activated by a mechanical switch on the brake pedal.
To test a suspected bad stoplight switch, bypass it with a jumper wire. The stoplights should light when the wires are connected. Use the test light to see if there is power at one of the lights.
  • If the lights come on when the wires are connected but not when the brakes are applied, replace the switch.
  • If the stoplights operate without the key on, remove the stoplight fuse before removing the switch.
  • If the new switch is adjustable, adjust it so that it is open when the pedal is released.lights should come on about 1/4" after the pedal is applied.

How to replace a brake light switch on a 1998 GMC Sierra 1500.


Hello my name is Israel and I will be glad to help you. Above the brake pedal there will be a small white in color switch with two wires coming out of it. This is the brake switch. You will need to pull the pigtail from the brake switch and then "unscrew" the switch and replace with new one. Connect the pigtail. Adjust the switch so that the brake lights activate with a touch of the brake pedal. Good Luck.

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

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.
