Question about 1993 Toyota Tercel

2 Answers

Brake lights have a mind of their own

My 1993 Tercels brake lights frequently fail to turn off. The brakes are working fine but sometimes I need to pump the brakes several times to get them to turn off. I guess it is a stitch or actuator that needs to be cleaned or replaced. If that sounds like the fix, does anyone know where the switch is?

Brake and tailgate sometimes works


Since tail lights are not part of the brake switch, I wouldn't think so. This sounds more like a bad fuse or some other fault. Do either of the turn signals work? Are the turn signals a part of the brake lights or are they independent?

1993 Honda accord EX no brake lights


This sounds like Brake Light Switch, can be found at any local parts store, for under $15 and easy enough to replace. The switch is located under the brake pedal and depresses when you hit the brakes, causing the brake lights to turn on. Replacing this is cheap and easy.

Dear folks from FixYa, I have a 1987 Jeep Comanche. One night recently only the headlights came on but no rear lights or instrument lights. The brake lights worked fine. The turn signals also worked fine....


Good chance that either the switch itself is bad and only making connection when it feels like it. I'd also check the power supply to the switch and make sure any of the connectors aren't corroded.
Brake and signal lights are on their own circuit....that's why they still work. Personally, I'm betting on the switch.

The switch is fine if the third brake light is functioning. Even though the tail lights work, the filament for the brake light can be burned out. Sometimes they look intact but are still burned out. Replece the bulbs.

Sounds like your brake light switch is on its way out. Its a simple fix and a cheap part. It will need to be done immediately as not only can the lights staying on drain your battery but it can also cause lack of power and not put the brake lights on when braking. The switch is operated by the pedal itself and requires the drivers underdash trim to be removed. With this off the switch can be accessed and replaced. If you can get a vehicle technician to fit it, do so, as they are quite fragile and new switches can become useless if fitted incorrectly. Good luck
