Get a test light and start following the wire back. you will find one of the switches or a short is the culprit. I like the check the switches suggestion but a test light will help you to determine if the switch is indeed closed. just clip to a ground and touch the probe to the side of the switch that goes to the brake light. the other side is always hot when the ignition is on

Check the brake light switch at the front level (right hand switch housing) or rear brake cylinder. One or both may be stuck. You may need to clean or replace.

Need harley davidson sportster 1200 1996 model free download to install rear brake pads

You must take the two bolts out that holds the caliper to the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set it aside. Carefully examine the pads and the anti-rattle spring that is in the caliper bracket. Take the old parts out and install the new parts exactly like the old ones were in there. Make sure you put the fiber side of the brake pads towards the rotor.

Now, you must press the piston back into the caliper in order to get it over the new pads. I use either a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to force the piston back into it's bore completely. Once you have this done, carefully place the caliper back over the pads and onto the bracket without disturbing the pads.

Now, slowly depress the rear brake pedal repeatedly until you get a full firm brake pedal. Do not ride the bike until you get a good brake pedal and test the brakes.

Good Luck

Yes,try pulling up the brake pedal with your hand,see if the brake lights go off,if they do,or they do not,the problem will be with the brake light switch on the brake pedal under the dash.

Brake lights stay on. Ihave to push my brake pedal several times to get the lights to turnoff. Now that doesn't work.

There is a brake pedal switch located above the brake pedal under the dash that is a plunger type switch. Your plunger is probably stuck. You can try giving it a shot of WD 40 to try and loosen it up. Some times that works.... Other times the switch has to be changed.

They are easy to change and available at most any auto parts supply store. It is best if you have your old part "in hand" when you go to the store. The adjustment for the new switch is a matter of adjusting the front and rear stem nuts on the switch so that the brake light come on as the pedal is depressed about 3/8 inch but the brakes are barely applied.

How to install a rear brake switch on a 1972 harley ironhead sporster?

Been a long time since I've worked on one of those but the '72 model Sporty has mechanical brakes on the rear. There is a rod that runs from the rear brake pedal back to the rear brake lever on the brake backing plate. The rear brake light switch was a mechanical pull or push type switch. I seem to remember the '72 as being a pull type with a spring that connected in the brake rod and when the rear brake pedal was depressed, it pulled the switch making the brake light come on.

I need to know the name of the part in my 95 dodge ram 1500 3.9 liter pickup that makes the brake lights work? The fuse is good and the light bulbs are good because the come on when the lights are turned...

Hello there, The name of the part you are looking for is called a brake light switch, Fairly simple to change and relativly inexpensive. It is located behind the top of the brake pedal. Just a thought for you, I would suggest replacing the tail light bulbs first because you can have running lights and turn signals but the brake portion is burnt out.

Good Luck and I hope this helps, Allen

Brake lights stay on all the time. tail light 95 mercury villager

Just had the same thing happen to our minivan.......went to the Nissan dealer, since the Villager and the Nissan are the same van, and they actually had the parts in stock. Tell them what is wrong and have them pull up the schematic. You need 2 plastic buttons that push in the holes by the brake pedal. It cost about $10 for the 2 of them.

Epc light came on and now car wont start, what do I do?

I had this same problem on my 2001 Beetle. The EPC light refers to the Electronic Pedal Control that disengages the shift lock when you depress the brake. On the beetle there was a recall on this part for replacement and it is recommended that you take it to a dealer for free replacement. If you cannot get to a dealer, the part is about $10 - $20 at pep boys (or any other parts store).

The trick to getting the EPC to engage correctly if you cannot get the car going is to go under the drivers side in front the brake pedal arm where the sensor is located (this is a plastic or metal plunger that the pedal rests against and is easy to spot) and depress the brake with one hand and the sensor with the other and release quickly. It may take a few times, but this should disengage the EPC lock. You should hear an audible "thunk" which will indicate that it worked.
