Question about 1994 Toyota Paseo
Under the dash above the brake peddle is a switch for your brake
lights-it has an adjustment on it .unplug it and skrew it in about 4
turns, this will also fix the cruise.
Other more likely it is your brake lights that are continually on, in fact! I presume that your car is similar to many older (and some newer) ones that combine the rear turn signals with the brake lights, and hence with the hazard warning lights as well.
Aside from the safety issue of being misinterpreted by people following you, I would think that the lamp housings could get pretty much toasted from those lamps being on continually. Few auto lamp housings have much heat dissipating capacity and, being plastic in most cases, can char or melt quite readily if a light intended normally to be on for only a limited time or duty cycle should be on for extended periods.
In any event, your best bet would be to check out the damaged hazard warning light switch. You have pretty well indicated that it is a plausible location of the problem, given that the problem arose after an (apparently) damaging blow to that switch! You will probably have to replace it.
I hope help you. Good luck.
