There is a switch above the pedal. Did you find the 15 amp brake light fuse? It might be in the engine compartment relay box.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6053280-lights_out_lights_not_out_bulbs_ok . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Can't shift out of park, no brake lights


This is a problem with the brake sensor lockout. Most likely it is out of place or broken and shorting. It is on the brake pedal lever.

Brake light switch not engaging


Do you still have the old switch and are you sure that the hitch pin is in place holding the switch in the right position there might have been a nylon bushing on the brake pedal shaft that's missing if you press the pedal while looking at the switch and it partially moves this is the problem that switch is not to move and the rod should press in the switches plunger which activates the lights I'm going to try to find a photo watch for the next post

I would check the pedal position sensor. Do it when it's hot.

  • Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor

    Description & Operation

    A power supply is applied on the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor (main) power terminal from the PCM. The ground terminal is grounded with PCM. When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

Testing

  1. Connect a suitable scan tool to the diagnostic connector. Select APP1 or APP2 percentage.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  3. Measure the voltage at the PCM terminal and ground with connectors connected:

    APP1-8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP1-60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressedAPP2 -8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP2 -60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressed
  4. If any check above does not meet the specifications, check connectors and wiring between the sensor and PCM. If ok, replace PCM.
  5. If the measured values are outside the standard value range, or if the load % and/or voltage does not change smoothly, replace the sensor.

I have a 2004 Nissan Maxima. can't shirt it out of PARK. I tested the break switch and it seems to work (has continuity) also the break lights come on when I press the break pedal. I just replaced the...


Generally,when a shift lock solenoid/system goes bad you just zip tie the shift lock to unlocked position and that removes the need to depress the brake to shift out of park.

My fuses n light bulbs are good. But my brake lights still dont work. Why?


There is usually a sensor on the break pedal itself. Its usually up high. get to where you can see the pedal and with your hand move it until you can see what it touches. There should be a switch with a button being pressed by the pedal check in that area for electric connection and proper button operation. if power is there but not sent when depressed buy a new sensor and install it.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

Rear brake light are not working checked fuse under hood and passenger side dash could not find fuse by brake pedal


It could possibly be the actual switch that sits behind the break pedal. When the break pedal depresses or presses into the switch, the break lights go on or off. Not sure how much they run, but really easy to change. You could also check the switch with an ohm meter if available by making sure it breaks or runs continuity through the terminals when the switch is pressed/released. Hope this helps. Good luck!

What makes the break lights not work when the break peddle is depressed on my 2006 TP Cruser?


If the fuses and bulbs are ok, check the brake light switch, it's under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal. Press down on brake pedal and see if the button isn't stck in, if it is, tap on it, it should pop out.
The switch could also be bad.

Break lights do not light when break pedal depressed. Fuse #13 is ok.


Check the brake pedal switch that is located behind the brake pedal arm. There should be an open contact switch that operates the lights when the switch is depressed. It is generally adjustable and needs to be moved back to where it presses on the arm again when the pedal is depressed.

Good luck!!
