I have 1988 nissan pathfinder V6 2 door. brake light always on without stepping the brake. please send me a picture of brake light switch.and the location where is mounted. thank you

this is what your brake light switch looks like if you follow the brake pedal up to where it mounts under the dash, you will see the bracket that holds both items, the brake pedal and also the switch, before replacing it,, check it to be sure that the plunger isn't just stuck, readjust it

I need instrustion to install a brake switch

It is a generic Nissan brake light switch replacement procedure... the brake light switch on a Nissan Altima i.e. controls the illumination of the brake lights. Without the switch, the lights would not go on. The switch has no service life, so when it goes, it usually happens suddenly. New brake light switches can be obtained from Nissan or from a Nissan dealership.

1. Remove the cotter pin from the pin bolt that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster with a pair of pliers. There is a small cotter pin running through the brake pedal to brake booster connection. You need to pull this cotter pin out to remove the larger pin that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster.
2. Slide the pin out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
3. Pull up on the brake pedal to slide it out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
4. Remove the bolts holding the brake switch to the firewall using a socket wrench.
5. Remove the electrical connector on the brake switch by pulling it straight off the switch.
6. Slide the switch off the firewall.
7. Install the new switch. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure that you replace the cotter pin in the brake booster to brake pedal connection. The cotter pin prevents the retaining pin in the brake booster mounting bracket from coming off.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

I need to know where my brake light switch is located in my 2000 kia sephia.

most every one i have ever seen is mounted on the brake pedal arm, just above the pedal itself. you will have to get your head and a light up under the dash board to see it.

then there are a few others which are activated by hydraulic pressure, so you have a brake light switch which looks more or less like a brake hydraulic system failure sensor. go to a parts store website and look up their replacement part. there will be a picture of it and you find the part on your car which looks just like it. on autozone website they have a parts locater which shows you where it is located on the car.

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.

The rear brake lights are staying on when car is off and brake pedal isn't applied.I replaced brake switch and disconnected the multifunction switch.They remain on.What is causing them to stay on?

The tricky part about replacing the Stoplight switch is positioning it perfectly - the bracket holding the switch must be in the right place (unbent), and the large nuts mounting the Brake light switch to the bracket must hold the switch at just the right distance from the flange on the brake pedal which actuates the brake light switch - or else the switch will think that the pedal is being depressed even though its not.
One problem that comes up is that these brackets may get bent
over time (especially with panic stops and/or collision(s) in the history of the vehicle), and the automotive electrician must then unbend metal to properly install a Stoplight switch.

Here's a picture of the Stoplight switches used in 2003 Grand Ams:

How do I remove the brake light stop switch from brake pedal?

disconnect the battery negative terminal from battery. depress and hold down brake pedal, then rotate the brake light switch about 30 degrees in a counterclockwise direction and remove it from the mounting bracket. unplug the electrical connector from the switch and remove the switch. to install new switch, grasp the new switch plunger and pull back until it ratcheted to its fully extended position. depress the brake pedal as far as it will go, then install new switch in the bracket by aligning the index key on switch with the slot at the top of the square hole in the mounting bracket,rotate the switch about 30 degrees to lock the switch into the bracket. gently pull on brake pedal until the pedal stops moving. the switch plunger will ratchet backward to the correct position. do not use excessive force when pulling back on the brake pedal to adjust the switch.

Check for power at the turn signal switch. White wire comes from brake switch switch into the turn signal switch. The brake light switch is working because the high mount brake light is working..right? Do the turn signals work ok? if so, then the wiring is OK. The brake signal wires that come out of the turn signal switch are dark green(right) and yellow (left).
