Display brake pedal switch 99 ford contour


The BOO (brake on-off) switch may have come out of the retainer or just slipped back. It's on the brake pedal arm above the pedal.

Push it into the bracket until the button is pushed in. If it won't stay put, use needle nose pliers to bend the tabs in just a little.

How do you replace the brake light switch? 2004 discovery series 2


The brake light switch is under dash at pedal. To remove, push the pedal forward, there is a sleeve that has to be pulled forward, and then the switch removes out the back. --------- The pedal box is attached to the bulkhead, above the footwell where your pedals go up and through to the engine compartment. Lift the bonnet, and over on the right side you'll see your brake master cylinder. It is mounted to the brake booster (like a big black doughnut. The booster is attached to the front of the pedal box. Thats where you'll find the brake light switch, with two wires attached.------------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

Where the brake switch on my polo 3003 model my brake lights dont work some told me its the switcc


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

I need instrustion to install a brake switch


It is a generic Nissan brake light switch replacement procedure... the brake light switch on a Nissan Altima i.e. controls the illumination of the brake lights. Without the switch, the lights would not go on. The switch has no service life, so when it goes, it usually happens suddenly. New brake light switches can be obtained from Nissan or from a Nissan dealership.

1. Remove the cotter pin from the pin bolt that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster with a pair of pliers. There is a small cotter pin running through the brake pedal to brake booster connection. You need to pull this cotter pin out to remove the larger pin that holds the brake pedal to the brake booster.
2. Slide the pin out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
3. Pull up on the brake pedal to slide it out of the brake booster mounting bracket.
4. Remove the bolts holding the brake switch to the firewall using a socket wrench.
5. Remove the electrical connector on the brake switch by pulling it straight off the switch.
6. Slide the switch off the firewall.
7. Install the new switch. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure that you replace the cotter pin in the brake booster to brake pedal connection. The cotter pin prevents the retaining pin in the brake booster mounting bracket from coming off.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

2002 ford escort brake lights won't go out. I found a blue disc broken on the floor board but I have no idea where it came from.


More than likely that blue disc came from the brake light switch. You state that the brake lights will not go off. The solution is a relatively easy fix. Under the dash near steering column, attached to the brake rod (or above brake pedal) is the switch that controls the brake lights. It is usually held in place with a small connecting rod with a kotter pin or clip. Remove the pin or clip and slowly pull the switch out while (depending on design) slowly pulling the brake pedal rod the opposite direction. Be careful when removing the plug(s) on old switch. Replace the new switch in the opposite order in which you removed the old switch.

  4. Step 4 Release the push rod pin from the brake pedal and slide the push rod off the brake pedal.

1988 toyota corolla sr-5


Locate the brake switch up above the brake pedal. Push in on plunger and check if brake lights go out. This switch can be unplugged and removed from its spot at the pedal. Then you can pull out plunger and reset it, put back in its spot, and let pedal readjust to the appropriate travel. It should automatically set to correct stroke length after pulling plunger outward to its furthest length. If this switch, or its adjustment is not to blame, post again. I will help more if needed.

Thanks, I hope this helps. TT
