    cant remove the brake light switch

  • sayheykc Nov 15, 2008

    I have no brake lights (both sides out) or turn lights (rear only). The bulbs are new and the fuse is good. The brake light on the back of the cab works.

    Is there a relay or some kind of switch that could be bad? Thanks. (1998 1500 WT Chevy pickup.)

How do i replace the brakelight switch on 2007 accent


There should be a small relay behind the brake pedal that releases a small plunger when the brake is applied. Remove this relay and take it to AutoZone, they will have a replacement. If you can't locate it on your own, go buy the replacement and look for the matching part behind the pedal.

When I step on the brake the cruise control will not disengage


There are 2 switches at the brake pedal. 1 is the brakelight switch & the other is the cruise disengage switch. Possibly 2 faulty switches but you should diagnose first. Check brake light fuse, then disconect brakelight switch, bridge plug brakelight switch if lights come on = faulty switch, check globes

My 95 toyota camry brake light stays on


Ive got a 92 Tercel. Had this same problem. Look around on the floorboard of your car. Look for a small rubber disc, or broken up pieces of the rubber disc.

If you see the pieces or whole hard rubber thing on the floor, then the rubber disc that goes at the point where the brakelight switch touches the back of the brake pedal has fallen off.

When that disc falls off the brakelight switch touches bare metal, and the switch is grounded which makes it stay on all the time.

Climb under the dash with a flashlight and look at the back of the brake pedal. Find the brakelight switch, look at the point where the switch contacts the pedal. See if the rubber disc is missing. If it
is missing find a small piece of rubber to superglue on the spot where the switch makes contact.

If the disc is there the brakelight switch is probably stuck. If its stuck you will see a gap between
the switch contact and the brake pedal. If its stuck get a replacement brakelight switch from an
auto parts store.

Volvo 850 - Headlights/Brakelights


Hi Metzgerism!

No tools are needed to do such replacements, as both head- and brake-lights are accessible by simply removing panels/caps that cover them. For the headights there are caps that can be twisted and removed, while for the brakelights you need to carefully pry open a panel on the rear post.

Good luck!
