Look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you brake it pulls the switch out. Most likely this switch needs to be replaced

SOURCE: how do you change the right front headlight bulb on a kia sedona

Remove the headlight assembly. Just remove the 3 bolts with a 10 mm socket and pull it out so you can disconect the wire harness. After that pull the whole assembly out and unscrew the bulb cover. The bulb is held in with a spring clip.

Break lights don't work but the high break light works and everything else works.All the fuses are good and I changed bulbs


Check across the terminals of the brake switch attached to the brake pedal. When pedal is depressed, the switch should close. On a multimeter this would read about 0.1 to 0.5 ohms.

  • Open the hood and locate the battery. Remove the cable from the negative terminal (black cable) by turning the retaining nut on the cable clamp counterclockwise with a socket wrench until the clamp is loose enough to slide off the terminal. You must disconnect the battery's negative terminal to avoid a potential electrical shock when working on any electrical component in your KIA.
  • Open the trunk and pull back the carpet near the tail light assembly.
  • Remove the three nuts holding the lamp assembly in place and pull the lamp assembly out.
  • Remove the bulb assembly by rotating the bulb counterclockwise and pulling the bulb straight out of the housing.
  • Install the new bulb. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • Reconnect the cable to the negative battery terminal.

    Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

    My brake lights arent working!


    Normally you'll find a brake switch at arm of brake pedal, up under dash. Switch should have 12v going in one side, when pedal not pushed, and both sides when pedal is pushed.
