The second switch is for the transmission, It unlocks the tranny to shift when the brake is depressed. the way to find out which is which, is pull the plug on one and see which one doesn't work anymore. Hope this helps.

Check the brake switch for continuity when the switch is closed. I've seen this numerous times where the brake switch stays open even when you press the pedal

Brake Lights No Go

Try checking your brake switch which is located right above your brake pedal. It is electrical and has a spring loaded pin that comes out when pedal is pushed and contracts in when pedal is released. When its in it turns off the brake lights.

Break lights dont work, I replace the lights how do you replace the break fuse what should I look for?

Bulbs are just like a fuse to for they blow out like a fuse. You have a brake light switch mounted near the brake pedal. Check that switch out with a OHM meter. Just unplug the switch and feed the Ohm meters contacts into the switch. Then push the brake pedal down to see if it completes the circuit. If a OL reading is showing at all times the switch is bad and needs to be replaced

check all your fuses if fuses are good check brake lite bulbs see if they are blown. if bulbs are good get a test lite see if you have power to the bulb sockets have friend apply brake pedal you test power going into bulb socket if you have no power brake lite switch behind brake pedal could be burnt out. p.s dont forget to check all fese relays when checking your fuses.

The brake lights on my 2004 Chevy Colorado are not working. It has new bulbs and the fuse is not blown. What else could it be?

Look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you brake it pulls the switch out. Most likely this switch needs to be replaced

06 Liberty light switch wiring

You usually have 2 wires off the brake switch.
With a test light you should have 12 volts (test light lit) on one wire.
The other wire will have 12 Volts or light the test light when you step on the brake pedal.
If there more than 2 wires, just check which wire has 12 volts when you step on the brake pedal.
