Need diagram for f150 1976 wire attachment to break pedal, replaced slave cylinder abad now lights are on constant.


Mcmom, Either your brake pedal is not coming up far enough to the brake switch, or the brake switch is faulty. You may still have air in brake system not allowing pedal to come up high enough to contact switch, pull brake pedal all the way up and have a second person see if brake lights go off.
Links below to show brake switch location and show how brake pedal arm should come all the way up to turn off brake lights.

98 chevy lumina Rear window break light works, but rear break lights don't, also right turn don't work?


I can almost 100% guaranty the turn signal switch is the problem. Power for the brake lights starts at the brake switch. power then splits from there and the third brake light gets power directly from the brake switch. Since the turn signal and the brake lights are on the same bulb power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. the switch depending on what position it is in will allow brake power or turn signal power to there respective left or right brake/turn bulbs.

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal and wiggle the turn signal and or play with the hazard switch the brake lights will almost always intermittently start to work. this will confirm a bad turn signal switch which is pretty common on GM vehicle with this style setup.

Brake lights not working. Niether stop lamps or overhead brake light bar work. All other rear lights work. Fuses for both lights are OK.


The most common problem for this fix is a New Replacment Brake Light Switch. It is located and mounted to the brake pedal assembly.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

My 1994 jeep cherokee has the break lights on when is shut off


If you mean the rears brake lights, you more than likely have a bad or mis-adjusted brake light switch. It's tough to get at. Located on the upper side of the brake pedal arm, under the dash.

I have a 1998 Mazda Protege and when the headlights are on all lights work including the rear tail lights. When I press the break pedal the 2 rear lights go out completely except for the center (window)...


It is very likely that you have a bad break switch. It is usually located on a bracket right behind the brake pedal bar. A new switch is generally $30 to $45, and only takes a couple of minutes to change.

I hope this helps.

Rear break lights don't work anymore. Reverse, parking break and flashers still work. Any ideas?


Did you check the brake pedal switch? Usually it is under the steering column were your brake pedal arm resting on it! Stepping on brake pedal makes the switch supply power to brake lights, check if its still working or wires been cut off or the connector got disconnected!

My brake light won't turn on when I breaks but they turn on when the lights for the care r on. How come and how can I make the lights work?


The parking lights and break lights are different. You need to look at the bulbs, (Does it have a third brake light in the rear window that works?) look at fuses, and also you have a brake light switch located on the upper side of the brake pedal arm.

Rear brake light are not working checked fuse under hood and passenger side dash could not find fuse by brake pedal


It could possibly be the actual switch that sits behind the break pedal. When the break pedal depresses or presses into the switch, the break lights go on or off. Not sure how much they run, but really easy to change. You could also check the switch with an ohm meter if available by making sure it breaks or runs continuity through the terminals when the switch is pressed/released. Hope this helps. Good luck!
