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.

1999 nissan pathfinder brakes lights stays lit when ignition switch is turned off


the brake light switch will work without the key in the ignition if you push on the brake pedal, its just the way its designed. if you were to test the switch with a test light one wire is always powered up and the second wire is only powered when the brake pedal is pushes to activate the switch. if you test both wires without pushing the pedal I think you will find you have power on both wires indicating the brake switch has shorted and is working all the time. replace the brake switch.

1997 nissan pathfinder le 3.3l - Brake lights won't turn off - replaced stop switch and relay combo already. any ideas?


The brake switch will stop all current to the brake lights. As soon as the brake pedal moves just off of its fully up position, the switch makes contact and passes current on to the brake lights. You can operate it by hand to check if everything is right. izzit adjustable? The switch is the last thing in the path to the brake bulbs, so it has to work right, right off the brake pedal!

The brake lights on the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder stays on all the time. It looks like some type of insert is missing from the brake pedal assembly to turn off the light switch. any suggestions?


there is a small rubber bumper that pushes on the switch. you may need to go to the dealer or a parts store and they may have something that will work, the dealer having one in stock may be a remote possibility.

92 Nissan Pathfinder brake lights stuck on


Change the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. Go down to the parts store and ask for a new brake liight switch for your Pathfinder and look up under the dash where the brake pedal arm goes and you will see the switch. You will need to unplug the wires to your old one and disconnect it and install the new one the same way. It is pretty much self adjusting once the brake pedal is released. If the brake light does not go out adjust the switch pin to be longer so it will depress when the pedal is released
