Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Tacoma 2006 how do I get the brake light activation switch out?

My brake lights stay on when I'm driving down the road or I park and leave it. Two months ago I just put an extra spring in to hold the petal at the very top. Now it is on again, want to change switch or even add a drop or two of glue to the top of plunger but can't see how to get it out. Can disconn. harness and split switch but can't even see how top half of switch comes off bracket!

1998 expedition yesturday was low on fuel got gas drove with headlights on got 4 miles down road vehicle died thought was bad gas 3hrs later vehicle would run but abs light and brake light would flash


There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

Parking brake


The 2006 LS has a parking brake that is controlled electronically. When power is lost to the car (battery disconnected etc.) the brake has to be reprogrammed to relearn what position it is in at the time. When this happens the info center up by the speedometer reads "foot on brake." If you depress your brake pedal the message will change to the next step and will walk you through the reprogramming. I believe you activate the parking brake next and then turn it back off and drive around the block, activate again, turn off again and shut down car. When you restart the car the parking brake will be reprogrammed however if you overlook the foot on brake message (like I did for a while) the car will be confused about whether the parking brake is on or off for awhile. This whole process is listed in the owners manual in case I have forgotten any of the steps. Hope this helps.

check the brake fluid level, if its low, it may be time to check the brakes for wear. As your brakes are used up, the fluid goes down and turns the light on.
