I have to replace my brake light switch for my 2001 Daewoo Nubira and am unsure what all has to be done. I was told its a fairly easy thing to do though. Any suggestions? I would rather not get someone to work on it since most people give me a hard time about it being a Daewoo.

it is on the pedal frame under the dash lower cover, unscrew the torx (T20 I think) screws holding it on, get your head under the wheel and with a light look up the brake pedal, it is held to the frame by 13mm nuts one either side of the metal pull off the wires (you might join them and check if it is faulty first) and unscrew the nut on the other end and pull out the switch, pre adjust the new switch the same as the old one and re fit
This can be caused by a number of things. You just have to eliminate each one.
Light Globe Replace one with a new one if it works replace both.
Fuse Check fuse in fuse panel under bonnet.
Brake pedal switch Unclip wire connector, check with circuit volt light indicator, Ohm meter or other continuity tester.
Wiring from pedal switch to light globe As above (maybe cut squashed or broken wiring)
Hope this helps
As suggested above, change the battery. Then, open the car with the key, turn the ignition all the way to ON (all lights on the dashboard showing), and back to OFF. Now press either of the buttons on your remote, and keep it depressed until the hazards flash. That should cure the problem.
