Automatic transmission, right? Likely cause is the brake pedal switch located on the brake pedal arm near the firewall. This switch controls an interlock solenoid, a safety feature, that will not allow the shifter to move unless the brake pedal is depressed. Another possibility is the brake relay located on the under-hood fuse panel. Good luck.
Hi, squeaky brakes can be as simple as dust from the brake pads ( this can be solved by washing the brakes with a hose pipe quite easy if it has alloy wheels. If its a constant noise the brake pads could be due for changing which could be normal for that amount of miles( May also need discs ). I would`nt let that stop you buying the car as they are a good car I hope i have set your mind at rest John ( South Wales UK )
hi from uk the part you mention is the brake stop light switch it has a plug on 2xwire plug it operates by as pedal is pressed the plunger of switch moves out and connects the 2xwire circuit and so brake lights operate this switch simply unscrews from the pedal box/carriage after plug removed then the new switch screwed in place and with b/pedal off the switch is screwed to a point that if you press pedal down approx 1/2 " the switch plunger moves out and b/lights come on this is trial/error untill you are happy with the pedal movement down till lights operate SIMPLE ! hope this helps?
I assure that there is a brake lamp switch on your brake pedal, try feeling all the way up the pedal shaft, if you still dont find it, i suggest you buy the haynes repair manual for that vehicle, it will tell you exactly where it is.
It sounds to me like the master cylinder may not be returning all the way to the rest position. does the pedal eventually turn off the brake light's once it sits for a bit? if it does I would try having the brake system flushed there may be dirt in the bore or it could be gummed up, not allowing for full return. if the brakes are working fine a small carburetor return spring on the pedal might do the trick with out replacing the master.
