Question about Cadillac CTS
Hi, to find the brake light switch all you need to do is get on your hands and knees and have a close look at the brake pedal then if you follow it up to the top where its bolted and just before it goes through the bulk head this is where the switch is.
its actually located at the very top of hte brake pedal at the back of the pdeal you should see it as it will have a couple of wires going to it.
if you have any problems finding it please give me a shout back.
pls rate this post as i have a whole page of posts on my screen
let me know of you get stuck.

You will need to look at the brake pedal arm. It will be located there. When you press the brakes it will press another switch to power the lights.

The brake switch is on top and behind the brake pedal.

SOURCE: i need a wiring diagram
there are two switches on altimas one brake switch is to cancel the cruise control if you have it on your vehicle, and the other is to control shift interlock (shifter when you press on brake pedal to relase) and the lights. this switch has more than two wires to it and they are very easy to replace but study them a bit before attempting, it just takes some twisting.
you might have jumped the wrong switch. it is common for the brake switches to go out, so my advice is to replace it. don't forget to check power supply to circuit (fuses) and older models tend to short out at the bulbs because the socket puts pressure on the lead contacts on bulb and brings them together
causing a short circuit that you forever will try to find in the wiring

hello what i would do first disconnect the wires off the brake light switch test the power wire to make sure you have power to the switch if you do contact them to bypass the switch completely test see if your lights are lit if not i would trace the wiring back to the sockets contacts inside might be corroded or wires in the socket are not contacting the metal tab or broken at the crimp they sell replacement sockets you can splice into the harness if you dont have power at the break light wires you need to trace wires back to fuse panel first check to make sure there is not a secondary fuse box under your hood usually on drivers side near the strut tower usally says fuses goodluck please rate

Look for broken wires or with a test light. follow the wires checking from the fuse box back to the brake lights checking every so often in between the light wires and the fuse box.

Disconnect electrical connector to brake switch brake located near brake pedal. Check for twelve volts or power with a test light on one side. If power, get a piece of wire, strip the ends and plug into each end of connector. If brake lights works, switch is bad. If not, check bulbs and power in the brake light socket. If no power, check to make sure power is leaving the trafficator switch as the brake light switch is depress or bypass. Check for broken or bad connection along circuit. If all good, you could have a trafficator switch problem. Oh, are the hazard and trafficators working in the rear? If they are, the trafficator switch is bad because the brake switch sends power there, then out to the back through the left and right rear trafficator wires.
