I manually adjusted my brake pedal on a 2004 expedition. After testing the brake lights would not go out. I replaced the brake switch and now the brake lights will not come on. What do you think?


it appears that your adjustment of the brake pedal is the problem
if you adjusted it down , of course the lights will stay on
if you did not adjust the brake switch position correctly on replacing the switch of course the lights will not come on
the brake pedal should have about 1" movement before the brake rod pushes on the m/cyl piston or booster rod
you have to adjust the switch position to operate in the free play distance

How do I adjust brake pedal on my mower


  1. Press down on the clutch pedal and set the parking brake.
  2. 2Identify the brake adjustment feature, located below the brake operating arm. It includes a jam nut, regular nut and rod. Measure the distance between the brake operating arm and the regular nut. The regular nut is distinct from the jam nut -- the jam nut is the outer nut.
  3. 3Loosen the jam nut and turn the regular nut so that it's exactly 1-1/2 inches between the arm and regular nut. Double-check that the parking brake is engaged, then re-tighten the jam nut so it abuts the regular nut and holds it in place at the correct distance. Try the riding mower stopping procedure again in a safe place.

Parking brakes light on for oldsmobile Aurora 2001


If the cable is not too corroded you can sometimes lift it by hand so that it will trip the parking brake switch and turn off the light.I have had to replace the parking brake assembly on both of my Auroras to get the system functioning again. The cables corrode just where the first cable comes through the body and connects to the next intermediate cable. The entire brake pedal assy. needs to be replaced ($65.00) for the part.

I have to press SHIFT LOCK button to get lever out of PARK.(with engine on.) 2006 Toyota Hilux Dual cab 4WD auto


You have to place your foot on the brake before the lever can be released out of the park position . If this does n't work have a look and see if the brake lights are working when depressing the brake pedal . If the brake lights don't function , replace the brake light operating switch which is located just behind the brake pedal .

Tip : note the distance the old switch is adjusted in relation to the brake pedal before you remove it and adjust the new one to the same distance .

This is the most common cause of the problem you have described .

Wat is a brake switch


An electrical switch located on the upper side of the brake pedal arm. It has voltage going to it, and when you depress the brake pedal, the switch closes and let the voltage go to the brake lights. (These switches are adjustable)

I got a brake booster put on and now the brake pedal won't go up enough to touch the brake light sensor


There is an adjusting rod behind the master cylinder or at the brake pedal. The dealer should adjust this for you as its travel distance is very important.

Hello, i have a 1997 subaru outback sport wagon and the brake lights do not work. the running tailights work. where do i start if its not the bulbs?


Check fuses and then try the brake light switch on the pedal... it should look like below:

You can unplug the switch and close the circuit of the wiring harness with a little pigtail of scrap wire and if the brake lights then work it's the switch.

best wishes!

I donot have a good brake i chang every thing in the brake sestem dodge caravan 1997


several possible causes for a soft brake pedal.

One is that the back brakes are probably drum brakes, and they need to be adjusted properly in order to reduce the distance from the shoes to the drum.

Another is that the master cylinder could be leaking fluid back into the reservoir when it should be pushing fluid to the wheels under pressure.

If you have opened and replaced any of the hydraulic system, there could be air in the system that needs to be bled out.

You could also have a bad power brake booster, that would make the pedal had and cause the engine idle to change when you hit the brakes.

Brake and gas pedals


The vehicle has a optional adjustable brake to increase driver comfort. The brake pedal position is changed in phase with the accelerator pedal. The system is adjusted by pressing the dash-mounted switch that powers the driver motor mounted on the accelerator pedal assembly. The two-way motor operates backward (away from the driver) or forward (toward the driver) to adjust the accelerator pedal directly and the brake pedal through the drive cable attached to the brake pedal assembly.
