A good quality, proper specification American made light switch is so inexpensive, I can't understand why you would want to use a foreign light switch. Des Perado

No, the common American light switch is only rated for a maximum of 125 volts.

Could be, a blown fuse, burned out bulbs, bad brake light switch, or an improperly installed brake light switch.

I have always made them at least 4 feet from the floor.

Probably a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is installed incorrectly.

The problem is most likely the dimmer switch itself. Start with replacing that first, and then go from there.

Recessed light can be called as down light, pot light (canadian), can light (for canister in American). It is a light fixture that installed in hollow opening in ceiling.

Most likely cause is a problem with the front brake light switch located in the right switch housing on the handlebars. If you installed new levers you may have ones for a different model or the clip that holds the switch my have fallen out.

There is no code restrictions on how many light switches that can be installed in any one room. There is no restrictions on installing a light switch in a habitable or uninhabitable room. Many homes have light switches installed before or in crawl spaces and attic areas. If you want to control each individual light fixture with a switch then it can be done. Some light switches can be outside of the room of the fixture that is to be controlled. This is done in some homes for the bathroom where you turn the light fixture on before going into the room.

The wall outlets are powered from the wall switch and the wall switch is installed upside down. You are actually turning it on when you think you are turning it off. Remove the wall switch and turn it 180 degrees.

Behind the glove box. It was an option and might not be there unless it was an installed option.

Ordinary household light switches are usually installed so that they turn off in the downward position. If yours turn on by pressing downward, it just means that someone installed them upside down. Electrical mains are designed and installed so that gravity would tend to open them not close them.

If you have one wire into your switch box for your light. this is called a switch leg, the dimmer should be wired across the black and white wire wires.

Changing a Brake-light SwitchI am not familiar with your Lexis, so this answer will be generic in nature and applies to all vehicles requiring replacement of their brake light switch.Here is the procedure:Locate the brake light switch.Disconnect the wiring harness connector and move the harness out the way so you can work without tangling in it, and thus possible damaging it.Remove the switch from its mounting.Install the replacement switch.Reconnect the wiring harness connector to the replaced switch.Properly adjust the newly installed switch so that it is off when the brake pedal is not depressed, but does come on when the pedal is depressed.

To control a light with a switch, the switch has to be connected in series with the light fixture.
