Default RE: brake light problem


when he reconnects the battery does the brake light come on immediatly or does it only illuminate after he pushes the break pedal and then it stays on??

if that is the case then the problem may be with the brake light switch.
the brake light switch is located on a bracket at the top of the brake pedal.

if you find it and check for continuity acrss the terminals with an ohmmeter.

check between terminals two and three, with the brake pedal depressed there should be continuity , when you release there shoudl be none.

then do the same between terminals 1 and 4 . if this is not working it has to be replaced.

this is the best i got, hope it works out

if the switch is disconnected and they still stay illuminated it could be a couple of things, bad wiring (hopefully not...) or the combo switch that turns on the headlights/tailights might be broken, do they come on/stay on with the switch disconnected no matter what?

on the brake pedal there is suppose to be a small rubber plug is for the brake switch stopper plunger .if the plug is not there , the brake switch plunger will come out as if you are stepping on the brakes, when that happens the brake lites will always stay on even when car is shut off ......
make sure that that plug is there,, if not get it at the dealer,, 3-4 dollars
