SOURCE: Right foot pedal doesn't light tail light when

More than likely, the problem is the rear brake pressure switch. Find the rear brake master cylinder and follow the metal line that comes out of the back of it until you come to a switch with two sets of wires connected to it. This is the pressure switch. To replace it, simply screw the old one out and screw the new one in. Do not press the foot pedal with the old switch removed. You should not even have to bleed the brake if you do it right. Have the new switch ready to screw in before you take the old one out. One out the other one right back in.

Good luck

SOURCE: foot brake pedal not operating

You seem to have duplicated this question. But in case you look at this thread, not the first one you added. I have replied to the original saying:

The chances are that your brake light switch is jammed. The switch is connected to a spring, which in turn, hooks onto your brake pedal. There is a picture of one of these units available here: (It may not be identical to yours, but it will give you an idea if you are unsure of what you are looking for).

Two likely causes

1) The spring is under tensioned (Or if you're really unlucky, it has come off!) There is an adjustable thread on the switch which allows you to move it closer to, or further away from the pedal, relaxing or tensing the spring. increase the tension on the spring by adjusting the switch unit so it is further from the pedal (But test that when the brake is released, the light goes out).

2) The unit is jammed as a result of age and or corrosion or dirt. Clean the unit, unclip the spring from the brake pedal and pull the centre pin of the switch in and out repeatedly to ease the movement. This may get it working again. If exercising the unit manually for 5 minutes doesn't fix the problem, you may need to replace it.

Brake light will not come on on foot pedal on 2008 ultra classic where is switch

Hi Anonymous, always check bulbs and fuses first, then follow the rear brake line from the rear brake master cylinder towards the rear brake caliper when you come to the metal tee you found out where the rear brake light switch lives. Use a test light to check for continuity. Good luck

Brake lights do not come on

You may have a defective brake switch. The switch is located behind the brake foot pedal. When you apply pressure to the brake foot pedal, the switch should compress.

Hummer H3 airbag light wont go off

Airbag light on in a Hummer H3 Dashboard???Here is the fix...
Start the engine of your car, set the parking brake, hold the regular brake pedal down with your right foot. Push down the parking brakepedal to its fully-applied position with your left foot. Now while you are still holding the regular brake pedal down. Quickly release the parking brake, Pull the bottom edge of the lever, located above the parking brake pedal, with the parking brake
symbol, directly rearward to release the parking brake. Make sure pedal snaps hard all the way back releasing the parking brake... If this doesn't work the first try, try it 3-5 times and it shall work... The airbag light will go off...

NOTE: The parking brake pedal is located to the left of the regular brake pedal, near the driver's door.

The parking brake lever is located above the parking brake pedal, with the parking brake symbol.

Brake lights staying on when car is turned off 1990 geo prism

Check the adjustment on the brake light switch which is mounted to the brake pedal lever assembly. Chances are is that it is out of adjustment and needs to be can manually depress the plunger on the switch(as if your foot was off of the pedal) to see if the lights turn off. When your foot is off the brake pedal it is supposed to depress the plunger on the switch causing an open circuit (it won't allow voltage to pass through to the brake lights).

I cannot put the gear on park


Without knowing which vehicle you have, you should first try placing your foot of the brake pedal then shifting into PARK. If this still doesn't work, keep your foot on the brake pedal and have an assistant check to see if your brake lights are working - if no brake lights either, then your brake pedal switch is faulty.

If your brake lights are working ok, then there may be a problem with either the gear linkage to the transmission, or possibly the transmission range switch.
