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.

Why do brake lights stay on all the time even when car is off in a 2002 Hyundai Accent?

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.

How do you cut off the brake light on a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer?

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.

Brake lights don't work on 1982 Oldsmobile toronado?

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

How do you put a brake switch on a 91 Camaro?

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.

If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?

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

You checked the brake switch and it's down but the brake lights still doesn't work on a 2001 Montero despite all new bulbs and fuses Any solution?

First check the brake light fuses under the hood...if it's good, change the light bulbs........if all are in working condition.........then it must be the brake switch. To check the brake switch (car's engine off), go down where the brake pedal is and push it toward the floor as if breaking; just above the brake pedal, you'll see the brake switch....push the button of the brake switch to see if the brake lights turn on (of course you'll need another person in the rear of the car to see if the brake lights are on), play around with a switch pushing it and releasing it....a few times. What happened is that there is a spring coil inside the button, it probably got stuck or if you don't feel the pressure when pushing the switch (like a pen) then the coil is broken........your best bet is change the brake switch completely.
