Its in warranty ,no?
new cars , data is hard to get, too new. (come with the deal, go to dealer as them to fix it with a NASA level engineer + ASE certs !!)
my online sources has zero compass support.
old cars, are simple a brake switch a wire and a lamp. cave man simple. but..
on newer cars, when you step on brakes, the Body computer
sends a message to the lamp controllers via the CAN network
some times, the BCM goes nuts, who to cure that. can cause
NAV and Radio to go nuts for fun. (reset, read the FSM on how to do that)

so my answer is , Take it IN.
after checking all fuses in both fuse boxes
read the operators guide. in the glove box, it covers fuses.

Why does brake assembly fail when I press pedal?


Check for loose contacts or wiring that is causing a short circuit near the brake pedal, or at the rear light.

The shifter is locked and engine turns on but can not shift from park


1st, have someone step on brake pedal while you check to see if your brake lights are working, if yes proceed to step 2, if not check your brake light fuse(Left side of dash fuse#20- 10amp)IF fuse is good replace brake light switch on brake pedal. 2nd Step (brake lights ok) Turn key on engine off, press and release brake pedal several times slowly, listen for a click and and pulse on shifter handle. IF yes you have a shifter malfunction replace shifter assembly. IF no, inspect shift interlock solenoid and or relace solenoid and cable. You should see a small access cover about the size of a peanut around base faceplate of shifter assembly use small screwdriver and remove cover, use screw driver to press button underneath plate and release shifter into reverse and drive gears(this is manual overide) if you need to move vehicle in the meantime.

Have a 1995 jeep cherokee that both brake lights went out. all other lights working, signals, reverse, but not brake lights. fuse? have no owners manual. also a right hand drive


Most likely the fuse, if the fuse is good, then check the brake light switch, that is under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal.
Press on the brake pedal with your hand and see if the button is popping out, if not, tap on it and see if it pops out, if not, replace it.

I can't really describe my stop light switch, all i know is i have to press the break pedal all the way down for the break light come up or put the car on reverse my car is a LINCOLN AVIATOR 2003 (2WD)


If you have to press the pedal all the way down then chances are there is no adjustment left to make at all on the brake switch.Best to replace it with a new one.This is a simple repair, should take about half an hour for you.Remove the pigtail connector and pop out the switch.This switch is on the brake pedal itself, towards the top of the pedal.

check the wire harness that runs from inside the trunk on the drivers side follow it down to the tail light and make shure the wires are not damaged or unplugged remove cover on the drivers side inspect the bulbs the holders and the wires and dont forgt to retighten all grounds that you find on your travels this should get the rear tail lights working also check the brake pedal switch up on the metal part of the brake pedal arm follow it up tp the brake pedal switch and acuate the switch by hand and check the wire voltage coming in and going out when pressing the brake pedal ok give this a shot
