There should be some adjustment on it, if not replace it, it's about a $12 item.

SOURCE: Brake Lights not working

The brake pedal switch on most cars or trucks is near the top of the brake pedal assembly where it pivots under the dash. As you move the pedal it releases the switch.

SOURCE: Brake pedal still goes to floor 2000 GMC Jimmy

It's very possible to be the master cylinder, the o-rings on the piston could be worn, letting the fluid seep back through instead of getting full pressure through the lines. Could also be the brake booster.
Try changing the master cylinder first, which is cheaper and easier, and see if there is a difference, you'll need to bleed the brakes again.
To check the booster,
With the engine off, pump the brakes until the pedal is hard, then hold pressure on the brake pedal and listen for air escaping, or the pedal goes slowly to the floor, Do that after the master cylinder has been changed, at least that will be eliminated.

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.

The brake light doesn't come on. the taillight brake lights do not come on. I replaced the bulbs. My rear lights come on, just not the brake lights.


the fuse is at fault. if all good on the fuse, bridge the 2 wires at the brake pedal switch together and see if they come on, if they do, refresh the switch.

Brake lights dont work,fuse good ,bulbs good,third light works


The third brake light switch works off a module for it is a sealed unit with a inverter that takes 12 volts beefing the voltage to 110 volts for the light emitting diode lights in it. It these terms you will need a new brake light switch located by the brake pedal

1999 GMC Envoy: replaced both GE 3057 lamps in left rear light assembly. Lamps both light. However depressing brake pedal does not initiate brake light. The righ rear brake light does work. The high mount...


The high mount brake light has its own fuse, so check that first. The high mount bulb is generally a stabdard type (there may be more than one bulb) or you can replace with an LED. As for the left rear bulbs not working when depressing brake pedal, check the bulbs again for any spring that may be broken. If the bulbs are still good, make sure there is sufficient contact with the socket. If still not working, have someone check it out further.

I have no brake lights when i push the pedal. i have checked power to the fuse (good) power to the plug for trailer (good) and i have replaced the switch. I'm lost


If you have power to the trailer plug. Then check and if you have power to your bulbs. Remember to check your third brake light bulb also.
