By the brake pedal a brake light switch is mounted closw by with a plunger on it. Upon pushing on the brake pedal you will see the plunger getting pushed inward a very small bit. It works alkie a light switch. When it is pushed inward the brake lights will come on. Upon releasing the brake the plunger releases turn itself off along with the brake lights. You can take the two wires from the switch and jump them to see if the brake lights do come on to see if the switch is at fault. The two wires are just for the brake lights only for that circuit

Have you verified the fuse's are not blown??? If so, you'll need a test light to start with basic truoble shooting to correct this issue.

2001 4Runner. Car security went bust first, then the horn stopped working, then the hazard lights. Now, the brakes as well. Any help please?


All except the brakes sound like fuses failing, or wires breaking. A quick check of the fuse box should remedy those.

What do you mean by "the brakes"?

does the pedal go to the floor without stopping the truck?
do the brake lights not come on?
is the brake indicator on the dash on?

need a little more to go on

Opel Astra 1.6 16v wont start but has power.


The engine light has been an indication you may have a "battery charging problem"...This could be a bad battery, bad alternator, or just dirty battery post connections (or loose) Try the cleaning and tightening of the posts first...(least costly) dirty posts will allow the lights etc to work, but do not allow the full current needed to turn the starter...Hope this helps.

Vauxhall Astra Envoy indicators not flashing


With out doubt it is the Indicator Flash Unit (Found near fuses) its a plug type box. you pull it out, plug in new one and it works. (Kinda looks like a strange adaptor plug you would put in a power socket.
