Brake light switch is active by the brake paddle.

Before you start,take a picture or do a sketch of the spring or linkage around the brake paddle.

Move the seat back will give you better access.

Press the paddle and the inner side (closer to the firewall) of the paddle will activate the switch.

Please keep in mind there are fuse(s) to protect the lighting circuit.

Check all the fuses before you R&R the brake switch,

How to replace a brake light switch on a 1998 GMC Sierra 1500.


Hello my name is Israel and I will be glad to help you. Above the brake pedal there will be a small white in color switch with two wires coming out of it. This is the brake switch. You will need to pull the pigtail from the brake switch and then "unscrew" the switch and replace with new one. Connect the pigtail. Adjust the switch so that the brake lights activate with a touch of the brake pedal. Good Luck.

Third brake lights work but no rear brake lights


Check the switch on the brake pedal, connect the wires to each other and if the lights work then the switch is at fault, if they do not then check fuses, wiring etc.

Brake lights on GMC truck do not work replaced fuses & bulbs


ther is a switch called a brake lifgt switch that has a pin that is moved by your boot brake pedal arm.
the way it works is: when you press on the brake the brake pedal moves down and the spring in the switch pushes out closing the contacts to your brake lights the switch is located high up under the driver's side of the underside of the dash near or, on the brake pedal support replace or, adjust this switch

Brake and/or taillights stay on


First, check the brake light switch, and if the high level light is on, the brake light switch is the likely problem. Even if it isn't, the bulbs could be burnt out. Anyway, disconnect the wire harness from the brake light switch on the brake pedal. If the lights go out, replace the switch. To test the light switch, disconnect the wire harness from that (with the switch in the "off" position). Again, if the lights go out, this is the problem. More likely, it is the brake one. This happened on my Dodge twice.
