It can be done but it requires knowledge about how a 3way is wired to convert it to a regular switch. It would involve testing live wires to determine where power starts at. You can't just replace one switch.
An old/worn/faulty light switch, or the wires connected to the switch are loose. Replace the switch ASAP.
To replace the brake light switch on a Suzuki Forenza, locate it on the pedal shaft, release the wires that connect it, twist and then take out the old brake light switch and put a new switch in its place. The job can be done by any handy owner.

Look under the dash on the 1996 suburban, and locate the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. Remove the switch nut, and slide the switch out. Unplug the wires from the switch and install the new switch.
Replace switch or "jump wires" on switch to operate windows Replace switch or "jump wires" on switch to operate windows
to make a torch you need batteries (obviously), a switch (you can buy a standard switch or make a pressure switch out of foil and cardboard), a light bulb, wires (3 if you are using any kind of switch) and a housing (something to hold the batteries, wires, light bulb etc. together). I would also recommend using a light bulb holder and wires with alligator clips (if you dont have solder) as these make the construction more sturdy. they may increase bulk but they are worth it especially as it is easy to replace the bulb and there is no solder needed therefore nothing has to be broken to replace anything.
Either there is a loose connection where the wires are attached to the switch, or there is a bad connection inside the switch itself. Turn the breaker off that controls that switch. Remove the cover plate. make sure the wires are tightly connected. If they are tight, replace switch.
Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.
remove trim plate around switch,take out screws holding switch in,remove wires then replace in reverse order!!
It Was EasyYou have a short in your wires or a bad switch that you need to replace. If you have a CD player you may need to make sure no bare wires are showing.
In the control handle. If you take off the switch cover you will see the wires that lead into it. Usually it will need to be soldoered to replace it.
Light switch connection is usually straight forward. Find your incoming hot wires, black and white. With the switch in the off (down) position and the power disconnected , connect the black wire to the top screw of the switch. Find the load wires and connect the black to the bottom screw of the switch. Connect the two remaining white wires together with a wire nut and push them to the back of the switch box. Install the switch into the wall box, replace switch plate cover. Turn the breaker (power) back on. Flip the switch to the up position and the light should come on.
If the switch is "closed" both wires should be HOT - with switch open one wire should go COLD-- if not defective switch
From the factory, the brake light switch is screwed into the front of the master cylinder on all 64 model Fords. You just unplug the two wires from the top of it and unscrew the old one, screw in the new one, re-attache the wires and bleed the brakes.
Should be in the side of the gearbox (assuming 5-speed) there will be 2 wires and usually a shim, put new one back like old one.
how do i replace the wires on a starter switch on a 89 ford f-150
The heater switch can be replaced on a Chevrolet Corsica by removing the three wires from the back of the switch. Put the wires onto the new switch and return it to its slot.
If you have unswitched supply from a light you need to route the supply through the new switch to the new light. You want to switch the black wire and just connect the white wires together with a wirenut and connect the bare ground wires together by a separate wirenut.
probably bad headlight switch,the break light wires run through the headlight switch
This sounds like a typical light switch connection that turns on an overhead light fixture. There are two pairs of wires in from the supply voltage and two pairs of wires out to the light fixture. The two white wires are connected together in the back of the box. These are the neutrals from the supply to the light fixture. The two black wires are the ones that get attached to the switch. Incoming "hot" to the top terminal of the switch and the outgoing black to the bottom terminal of the switch. If you just touch the two wires together as you explain in your question then the light fixture should come on.
Continue black, white and bare wires from outlet to switch box. Run light black, white and bare wires from light to switch box. Connect wire from light to one attachment on switch and black from outlet onto other switch attachment. Connect white wires together with a wirenut. Connect bare wires together with a wirenut and include a third piece of bare wire to this same wirenut. Connect the other end of this third bare wire to green screw on switch. Make sure all wires are 14 AWG if you have a 15A circuit and 12 AWG if a 20A circuit.
Use a voltage tester held next to the wire. Turn the switch off. If the tester stops beeping then the wires are on that switch.
Its on the transmission, just look for a switch with wires to it.
Just above the brake pedal, yes it has six wires.
