In my 04 jetta this was a blown fuse....my speedometer wasn't working either they were on the same fuse....since I don't pay attention to my speed in town I didn't realize this until the next day after noticing the break lights.

Can the movement of the brake pedal to disengage cruise control on 2016 GM Equinox be adjusted?


It is tied into the brake light switch, so technically yes, but very little or you may lose your brake light activation.

Have a 1995 jeep cherokee that both brake lights went out. all other lights working, signals, reverse, but not brake lights. fuse? have no owners manual. also a right hand drive


Most likely the fuse, if the fuse is good, then check the brake light switch, that is under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal.
Press on the brake pedal with your hand and see if the button is popping out, if not, tap on it and see if it pops out, if not, replace it.

I replaced the brake light switch on my 1994 chevy silverado,but when you press the pedal it won't move the contact enough to make the brake lights come on.


it should be adjustable the switch should touch the pedal arm just enough to make light come on that way the slightest tap on the brakes make lights come on.

I just replaced my front rotors, pads, and calipers on a 98 olds achieva. After doing this I bled the the front brakes but am now experiencing a very soft pedal. I am wondering if something else could be...


Because of the ABS system if you press the brake pedal with too much pressure then it will give you the illusion of a soft pedal. Does it feel like a soft pedal when the vehical is in motion and you then press on the brake pedal (normal)? The other thing is if your pads and/or caliper were frozen, when you changed them out. The brakes are not going to feel or brake exactly the same, after the repair. But you are there, if the pedal is real low or goes to the floor then there is still air in the system or for some reason, your master cylinder is defective.

06 Liberty light switch wiring


You usually have 2 wires off the brake switch.
With a test light you should have 12 volts (test light lit) on one wire.
The other wire will have 12 Volts or light the test light when you step on the brake pedal.
If there more than 2 wires, just check which wire has 12 volts when you step on the brake pedal.
