If it just the brake light switch, should be under a $100.00.

Reverse light on when brake is applied


Manny, I am confused too. When you apply brake, brake light should light up. There is no connection with reverse lights which have no color. Have you checked the manual? If you can't find solution, you may have to show it to a good mechanic because operating a vehicle this way could give wrong signals to traffic behind.

Brake lights won't work


-Bulb is good...?
-If so check the push in (On/Off switch) Just above the brake pedal arm. It might be stuck. If it's not stuck, replace new one.

Cannot get the car to shift out of park


the brake pedal has a sensor or switch it may be out.

Check the fuse!


APPLY BRAKES AND SEE IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON. IF NO BRAKE LIGHTS, REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH LOCATED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ARM AND THIS SHOULD ALLOW YOU TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK. IF THAT BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS BROKE, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF PARK

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

Unable to take out of park position


Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.

Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)

Brake lights won't light up when brake is applied but all other lights work


Without more to go on, I can only suggest that you check out the brake light switch. It will be a mechanical switch located either on, or directly behind the lever of the brake peddle assembly. Basically, the brake peddle is pushed and the lever moves. This will cause the lever to activate the switch, turning on the brake lights. There may also be a brake light fuse. It would be located in the fuse panel, and should be labeled. But, as I said, without specific year and model info that's about as useful as I can be. You can try Google images entering your year, model, and the phrase "fuse panel" to see a picture of your fuse panel. Good luck! I hope this was of some help. Dano

Brake light stays on


The brake light usually comes on when the parking brake is applied. If the brake light is still on after the parking brake is released, then there is something wrong with your brake system. Check your brake hoses, brake lines, and master cylinder for leaks of brake fluid. If you cant find anything, see a mechanic for help.

The upper break light comes on only when you push the break padde all the way and very hard, the lower break does not work at all


Sounds like you have a bad/defective brake light switch. When you apply brakes, the brake applies pressure to a switch like what is on your dryer or refrig. When it is pressed it turns on the brake lights. It is most likely defective mainly on the bottom lights and getting close to going completely out since your top still works. The mechanism inside the switch has broke or brken contact wires.
