Question about Cars & Trucks

My 1997 Mitsubishi Diamante brake lights aren't coming on when I step on the pedal. Changed all the fuses just to make sure all are good but still no lights when I hit the pedal. Could the switch on the pedal go bad or cause problem?

SOURCE: Where is the brake light switch on a 1997 nissan pathfinder?

The brake switch is mounted high on the brake pedal. A 14mm nut holds it in place. Don't mistake it for the cruise switch if so equipped.

I have a 1997 mitsubshi diamante changed the radiator not the car wont drive hand brake light is on. can shift into N and it grabs a little bit but not enough to go u hill or move out the parking space...

Check the transmission fluid,the transmission cooling lines connect to the transmission cooler which is located in the radiator, so check the transmission fluid,Have the vehicle in park and at operating temperature, pull the dipstick for the transmission and inspect the levle, if its low then add,now as for the hand brake light make sure the brake fluid cap is on and not out,

My brake lights dont work but the tail lights come on when I turn on the headlights.

Check fuses first. Should be a fuse labeled 'Stop' or 'Brake'.

If fuses are good, climb under the dash and look at the brake switch, it's high up on the brake lever. Make sure it is operated by pressing in the brake pedal.

Brake lights aren't working changed fuses and bulbs could it be the turn signal light switch?

the turn signal light switch has nothing to do with the brake lights,the problem is most likely the brake light switch which you should find around the area of the brake pedal it may be faulty or has come loose & needs to be adjusted & tightened back up........hope this helps......cheers.
