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
Steve

Tail light and brake light has stopped working YZF-R125


Hi, Anonymous tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
Before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Tail light wire


Adjust the brake pedal switch located on the upper side of the brake pedal under the dash. To adjust the stop light switch, disconnect the two wires attached to the rear of the switch, move the switch by loosening the lock nut towards the brake pedal. As soon as the center pin of the switch begins to touch the brake pedal notch, rotate the switch half turn more and lock it by tightening the lock nut. Connect the wires back and ask your companion to see the tail lamps while you depress and release the brake pedal. Or you can see the tail lamp behavior by parking the car on reverse at a distance of one foot from any wall.

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

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

Tail light and foot pedal brake light does not work but hand lever brake light works.


Probably a bulb/ rear brake switch combination. If your front brake switch is working, then half of the bulb is working. No taillight issue, probably a bulb. No rear brake light, probably the rear brake switch. Located on the lower right rear of the frame, behind the exhaust. Check for power on the orange/white wire at switch. If you have that then check for power on the other terminal of the switch while pushing on the pedal. The rear brake switch is hydraulically operated so you must have adequate pressure to activate it.

Rear lights including brake lights just stopped working


There could be a problem with the turn signal lever switch. Power is routed thru the switch to the tail / brake lamps. Also in this power "loop" is the brake light switch, try the following:

Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Check fuses and the bulbs.

Hell i just bought a chevy cavlier and my back break light is out...the light its self is on...its just the break light when pressed...


you don`t say if its both or just one brake light out.you say the light itself is on but not if you mean tail light or what.the tail lights use a different filament in the bulb than the signal light which is the same filament that the brake light uses.if the signal light work on the rear then the bulbs are good,if just one side works then the bulb is no good on the side that doesn`t work.if the signal lights work but neither brake light works then you need to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the fuses are good then it will be either a bad wire at the brake switch or a bad brake light switch,this is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash.

Have tail light working but brake light does not come on, top lever or foot pedal?


Starting at the rear brake master cylinder, follow the metal line back towards the rear caliper. you will find a brake pressure switch in the line somewhere. Make sure all connections to this switch are secure.

If so, check the rear bulb for a blown filament. It has two filaments, one for the tail light and one for the brake light.

2002 heritage no brake lights on hand or foot has led rear light change to old lightwith same result


Find the rear stop light switch. It's a pressure switch that is screwed into a "T" connector that the metal brake lines screw into. Just follow the rear brake line from the master cylinder to the rear caliper and you'll find it in the line somewhere. There will be two electrical connections on the switch. Make sure the wiring is in good condition at this point.

With the ignition switch in the "Run" position, one of these wires should be "hot", have voltage. When you depress either the brake pedal or pull the front brake lever, both connections should be "hot'. If so, your problem is between this point and the rear brake light.

Remove the bulb and check the socket. With the switch off, use a small screwdriver to check to see if the contacts in the bottom of the socker will spring in and out. There will be two connectors in the bottom, one is the tail light and one is for the brake light. Turn the switch on and carefully check for one of the connectors that is "hot". This is the tail light connector. Depress the rear brake pedal and check the other connector. It should be "hot' with the pedal depressed. If not, you've got a wire broken or shorted between the rear brake light switch and the lamp socket.
