Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
Needing some help...none of my brake lights are working...we checked all of the fuses and they all are good..and all of the other lights in and out side the car are working fine..also we checked the thing that the actual brake pedal pushes and when you push it down they still don't work..what could it be?
Actually, the switch you are referring to will cut the brake lights off when depressed, it is when extended that it will make contact, and light up the brakes. However, if it does nothing at all no matter what it's position, check the wires leading to the switch, and check the switch itself. If it lights up the brakes when you pull the switch off the rail, then you just need to readjust it, so that when you push the pedal, the stem is high enough to ride down with the pedal bar.
If the switch won't pass any current, simply replace your switch, and make sure that when you put the new one in, to adjust it's height above the pedal rail.
