Question about 2005 Peugeot 405
Hi, this is a common problem what you need to do is get on the floor by the foot pedals and look closely at the brake pedal then follow the brake pedal right to the top of the pedal then just before it goes through the bulk head into the engine you will see a switch atatched to the base of the brake pedal it will have 2 or 3 wires going to it now you may find the brake switch has come away from the pedal if so place it back where it should be no if the brake switch is still atatched then the chances are the switch has wore causing the gap between the switch and the pedal to be to big now you need to either replace the switch or build up the part on the brake pedal that presses the switch with something like sellotape to make the gap smaller so the switch is pressed when you press the brake pedal now this wont be a permanent fix but will get your brake lights working again.
The switch itself is not expensive so your best option would be to replace the brake light switch.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
