The switch lies over the brake pedal in the drivers well. The switch just pushes out. It is an easy repair but very difficult place to get your head in.

The brake light switch must be broken or out of adjustment.

On most vehicles pressing the brake pedal activates a brake light switch which is usually located near the brake pedal. It will be this switch that is faulty. Replacing it is probably the best option.

Have you tried brake light switch located on brake pedal or in that area?

The brake light is controlled by a little button switch that's mounted high on the brake pedal lever. If you follow the brake pedal upwards with your fingers, you'll feel the button. It has a spring in the button that pushes the button back out when you release the brake pedal. If the spring jams, the brake lights stay on. Replace the button switch.

You need to adjust your brake light switch. It should be located on the brake pedal. Unplug the switch and loosen the nuts to adjust the button closer to the brake pedal.

Either the brake light switch or on brake pedal there is a button that pushes the switch and it fell out.

There is a switch located on your brake pedal arm that turns on and off your brake lights as you brake. The switch is either defective or needs adjusting. The switch is nothing more than a button that is pressed when you release your brake pedal. If you follow your brake pedal arm upwards, you'll find a small plastic mechanism with two wires coming from them (the switch) and you can adjust it by turning a round nut to bring the switch closer or farther away from the arm of your brake pedal. If your button of your switch is not touching the arm your lights will remain on. The arm is suppose to press the button when you release the brake. If however your arm is pressing the button, check to make sure the two wires are not touching in any way. If all looks find and your lights are still on, replace the switch by unscrewing the nut of the switch all the way off and the switch will come down far enough for you to unplug the wires. Installation will be the reverse. Hope this helps.

There is a brake switch under the dash immediately in front of the brake pedal arm. It has a little button on it that is depressed when the brake is off, but when you press on the brake pedal, the button comes out and the brake lights come on. I'm still trying to get mine out, so if anyone figures out how to do that, I'd like to know. :)

More than likely there is a switch near the top of the brake pedal that is faulty. It usually looks like a small button that is released when you press on the brake pedal which turns on the brake lights.

You may have a bad brake light switch that is located behind the brake pedal. It is also possible that a wire is off on the switch. Check for power on the positive side of the switch and see if you have power to the other side of the switch when you touch the button. If you do, then you have a broken power lead to the brake lights or a broken ground in the trunk

the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.

The same thing happened to me. It's the brake lights switch either under or over the brake pedal. The same thing happened to me. It's the brake lights switch either under or over the brake pedal.

I had a similar experience on my 57 Chevy back in the 60's. 1. CheckFuse Panel fuse under Brake Lights. 2. Check bulbs High Beam filaments. 3. Withrunning lights on tap tail lights to check for wire grounding shorts. 4. Check flasher to see that the lights work. 5. This is what I discovered to be wrong: Look under Brake Pedal for the Brake Relay Switch button. It works in reverse like the button on a refrigerator or vehicle door. When the button is pressed in by the brake pedal it opens the circuit to the High Beam of the brake/running tail lights. If working by hand but not by the brake adjust it. If not working replace it. It is the Brake Lights Relay Switch.

Check the fuse, bulbs or there is a push button switch above the brake pedal that may need align or replace

The brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard. The switch is on the left-hand side of the drivers side.

Probably a brake light switch.

The brake lights on a 96 Jimmy are operated by the brake light switch, mounted on the brake pedal assembly. If the switch is bad the lights could stay on or off, or be sporadic.

Pre GM SAAB has a switch that must be in a depressed position for the lights to remain OFF When brake pedal pushed, button releases to engage lights. Your 96 may require GM button and you installed a pre GM switch,

Brake Lights "Stuck" ONUsually that is caused by the brake light switch becoming "out of adjustment," but sometimes it can be caused by a defective brake light switch.

There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch

If you do a search for the Camaro brake switch, you'll see that the switch has a main case and a shaft. The shaft appears to be threaded, but instead they are tension slip rings. At the end of the shaft is the switch button. The shaft slides through the brake pedal mount, which has a tension ring to hold the switch in place. Slide the shaft so that the switch button is completely compressed against the upper brake pedal plate. In operation, when the brake pedal is pressed, the upper plate moves away from the switch button, releasing it and allowing the internal contact to make the circuit engage, and the brake lights illuminate. For Camaros with the 'third-eye' brake light, a second brake switch is located next to the main switch.
