Brake light switch is activated by brake pedal arm, above the pedal. Have you looked to see if the switch is bent, broken, out of place or disconnected from wires?

How to replace brake light swtch in a 1999 chevy tahoe


The switch is attached to the brake pedal. Remove the wiring connector and the switch will either have a clip securing it or will be held in place with a plastic bushing. If a plastic bushing is used, a gentle pull will be needed to remove the switch. Install in reverse order and check brake light operation for switch operation/adjustment

Fix cruise control on my 2009 Chevy tahoe


Most common failure (other than fuse) is the switch at the brake pedal which kicks it out of cruise. Switch must be in correct position and adjusted such that it is depressed fully when brake pedal is up.

Replaced brake switch now won't go out of park 1997 chevy tahoe what do i need to do?


do the brake lights come on now with the new brake switch? Why did you replace the brake switch? It sounds like the switch is not being actuated or does not have a good electrical connection. You cannot move the shifter out of park unless the brake switch indicates the brakes are depressed. Whether or not the brake lights are functioning is a good indicator of whether the switch is working or not.

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

I have a 99 tahoe and the lights come on but the brake lights wont come on at all the relay is missing but when i put a relay in there it still wont come on the lights are good but no brake lights


Check the brake light switch down on the brake pedal lever, it might just be out of adjustment. You can also check to see if it is the switch by dis-connecting the brake light switch and using a paper clip to connect or jumper the two wires together that are in the wire connector to the brake lights. If the brake lights come on when the connector is jumpered then the problem is with the brake light switch.

I replaced the brake light switch on my 1994 chevy silverado,but when you press the pedal it won't move the contact enough to make the brake lights come on.


it should be adjustable the switch should touch the pedal arm just enough to make light come on that way the slightest tap on the brakes make lights come on.

98 Chevy pickup brake lights just stopped working has 2 separate fuses both are fine One relay labeled brake it tests OK Stop light switch replaced Rest of the tail lights work fine What else could B?


have you tried to find the brake pedal switch? follow the brake pedal under the dash and there should be a switch that the brake pedal presses to activate the lights when you push it in . if everything else has been checked then I suspect that the switch has moved enough to not work or it may be just bad. let me know if this was it.... hope this works

Brake lights don't stay on when I press on brake pedal. I have a 1998 chevy tahoe. Can someone help?


Stay on or go on when brake peddle is used?  If there is no brake lights check the fuse, and there is a brake light switch by the blrake peddle arm. Check the wire and check to see if the switch need to be re adjusted. Worst youmight have to replace the switch. Good Luck
