Question about 2006 Toyota Previa 2.4
I have to replace the brake light switch on the pedal. The current one is locked in place with a brown platic locking nut of some description. How to I remove this without breaking it so I can fit a new switch?
Get the FSM and read that.
in usa its really a
Sienna . the brake switch today is very very carefully designed so
it can not be misadjusted.
(lawsuits to toyota and throttle by wire, etc,)
i dont have the FSM page on this.
try alldata.com , and see stop switch replacment. for details.
on new cars and FSM is really mandatory.
on most cars 2007 , but toys are more complex , in more early years.
get the FSM.

Testimonial: "Nice of the person to help. Alldata seems to be US based and the Previa is a standard late model of 2006.I have a new switch which seems easy to adjust to the right setting but is held onto the metal pedal bracket by what seems to be a plastic fixing of some sort which I have not come across.I need to know whether these are available as it is is likely I will have to break the current one in order to get the switch off."

Your dealer is not lying to you.
All of the Toyota product line with ABS has this phenomenon. What Toyota has done is incorporate "Brake Force Distribution" into the braking system. What that means is there is now a sensor on the brake pedal/brake rod, going to the master cylinder. The sensor measures how FAST you press on the brake pedal. This activates the ABS pump, and supplies more brake fluid, harder, to reduce the time needed, such as a "panic stop"; the pedal travel is much longer than you are used to, because of the way they have to measure the speed of the rod being depressed. In actuality, this system is much better than the old system, as it also prevents wheel drag. It just takes a while to get used to. Really, there is nothing to worry about, I explain this same thing to my customers every week.
I hope this helps you out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".
