Your brake light is always on because the stopper at the brake switch is destroyed that's why it doesn't turn off. just put something hard to fill the hole at the brake pedal.

My back lights won't turn off on my toyota tercel


  • Push the driver's seat as far back as possible, allowing you to lay on the floor on the driver's side.
  • 2 Shine a flashlight at the top of the brake pedal stalk and find the stoplight switch. It will be a plastic cube either connected to the brake stalk or directly opposite the brake stalk, depending on the vehicle.
  • 3 Depress the brake pedal and feel where the brake light switch contacts the stopping plate, a metal plate in direct line with the stoplight switch.
  • 4 Feel for an open hole where the stoplight's plunger-style button presses. If a hole is present, you simply need to replace the rubber stopper.
  • 5 Press and release the plunger-style button on the brake light switch and ask an assistant if the brake lights are turning off and on. If not, the switch is bad and must be replaced.
Stoplight Switch Stopper Replacement
  • 1 Clean out any remaining debris left behind by the old stopper from the hole that the stopper goes into.
  • 2 Press the new stopper into the hole on the metal plate until it snaps into place.
  • 3 Shine the flashlight on the stopper and check that it sits flush against the metal plate.
  • 4 Press and release the brake pedal and ask your assistant if the brake lights are turning off and on.
  • 5 Replace the stoplight switch if the lights continue to stay on.
Stoplight Switch Replacement
  • 1 Loosen and remove the bolts holding the stoplight switch in place. It could be between one and four bolts depending on the vehicle.
  • 2 Pull the stoplight switch from its mount. Disconnect the wiring harness from the stoplight switch by pressing or pulling the locking tab and puling the harness away from the switch.
  • 3 Plug the wiring harness into the new switch until the locking tab clicks into place.
  • 4 Place the new switch on the mount the old switch was removed from and tighten the bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Press and release the brake pedal several times and have your assistant check for proper operation.

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition and the brake light will not turn off. We do not use the e-brake. can anyone help with this problem?


Your stop light switch has failed. This is the switch operated every time you operate the brake
pedal. This switch fails in one of two ways - always open (brakes lights don't work), or always
closed (brake lights won't turn off).

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:

* Unplug the wire connector at the back of the switch.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Replace with a new switch. Adjust the adjustment nut 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.

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.

Brake light switch


not positive on this model, but most cars have the same style set up for the brake lights, as you depress the brake pedal, it moves away from the switch causing the circuit to close and light the brake lights. hope this helps
