It will be located next to the brake pedal arm. removing it and replacing it is not that hard.
adjustments to make it work correctly is simply moving it set the plunger to operate the brake lights when the brakes pedal is pushed down

Dashboard lights out and also brake lights. does that mean the battery needs to be changed on 1998 Toyota rav 4x4?


If all your fuses are good, start looking at your ignition switch. It's the one thing all those circuits have in common.

2006 brake light will not go out


Light gets power from brake light switch/.May be switch got shorted an brake light getting non-stop power causing it not to turn OFF brake light.

Get the brake light switch checked. Check volt at brake light switch.

It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its wiring short for switch.

My Toyota rav4 1997 has a light on, the light that indicates the handbrake is on and also for low brake fluid but I've checked the fluid level and there is little difference to the max, i have seen that...


Remove the 2 wire connector at the master switch and jump it , light goes away the problem is the sensor at the master switch, solution replace brake master cylinder.Light still on , do the same with the switch located in the lower part of the parking brake handle goaes away replace switch, still there inspect wiring for shot, start in the brake light harness, also check the bulbs .

MY 1997 TOYOTA RAV4 HAS ENGINE LIGHT ON, IT IS ACTUALLY USED I BOUGHT IT TODAY WITH ALMOST 181,800KM CAN IT COME ON IF TIMMING BELT HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED OR IF THIER IS SOME LEAK IN GAS TANK OR SOMETHING


The check engine lightwill turn on when the engine and/or transmission control module finds a concern. The sellers may have had the light turned off just before they sold this vehicle, knowing there was a problem. No, it doesn't monitor timing belts, or leaks in the engine, but will turn on if there is an evap leak in the purge system. Autozone usually scans check engine lights for free.
