I've got a '92 skylark, and had a problem with the brake lights staying on even after the car was off. There is an adjustment that is connected to the brake pedal that you can adjust the tension on. It's kind of a pain to get up under there unless you're skinny though.
The 2001 Buick Century brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The brake light switch should be labeled as such.
who knows i have the same question
I have 05 with no brake lights
The brake light switch is located on the brake pedal bracket. You'll need to remove the trim panel beneath the steering column to get to the switch and the connector. FriPilot

I'd check the sensor for the emergency brake. It's probably faulty.
Go to the brake pedal and it is mounted under there then unplug the connector and screw out the part then screw the new one in and replug the connector in.
probably about $70-$100, i just got quoted on my pickup $300 for complete back brake line replacement
Answerthe brake light switch down at the brake pedal is most likely bad .AnswerFirst, use a test light to check to see if the bulbs are getting power. If not, check the stop light switch. This is the switch connected to the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is pushed, this switch closes the circut and causes the brake lights to come on.AnswerThe brake lights are wired through the hazard switch, Turn the hazard lights on and off several times, the brake lights should start working.the hazzard swith has a little plastic piece that dry rots over time, go to junkyard and by the switch, very simole job, cost me 25 cents
How the brake lights work on a 66 Mustang is very simple. Power goes from the headlight switch to the brake light switch, then through the turn signal switch and back to the brake lights. There is no fuse in that system. There is a self resetting circuit breaker in the headlight switch, but, if that was tripped, none of the lights on the car would work. The first thing to check is the brake light switch itself by bypassing it. Unplug the connector from the switch and run a jumper from from one slot in the connector to the other. If the brake lights come on, replace the brake light switch. If they don't, the problem is either a wire has lost continuity or there is a problem in the turn signal switch.
It could be the ground wire, the brake light switch, a damaged wire or connector or the turn signal switch.
The only thing common to all those lights (but not to the center brake light) is the hazard switch. I'd check that next. On my 96 Century the hazards override the signals and brake lights meaning that the signals and brake lights must be wired into the hazard switch somehow.
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.
Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.
It's at the top of the brake pedal lever, near connector to the vacuum booster.
Brake Lights That Won't Turn OnThere could be several causes, but these are the most common:The fuse for the brake light circuit has failed ["blown"],If adjustable, the brake light switch is out of proper adjustment,A connector somewhere in that circuit has become disconnected,Corrosion has occurred on the metal connector terminals INSIDE of a connector,A conductor [wire] has been cut or broken, orThe brake light switch has failed / become defective.
It may well be that the brake light switch has gone faulty If you can, remove the wiring connector block from the switch and bridge the two terminals in the switch connector block. this will bypass the switch as a temporary measure Make sure the ignition is switched on after you have bridged the connections.
under the engine beside the paseneger wheel, blue connector
Under the dash, above the brake pedal. There's a plastic flap that opens and the fuse box is above that.
At the base of the brake pedal you will see the brake light switch. When you find the switch you will notice that it is held onto the rod by retainer clip which can be quite difficult to remove without damaging the clip. Once you get the clip off you can undo the electrical connector and the switch should slide off. Then you can slide the new one on, connect the electrical connector, and re-install the retainer clip.
It' likely, if bulbs are OK that the turn signal switch is burned out. If the switch fails, it won't allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. Go to:http://www.2carpros.com/first_things/no_brake_lights.htm for the 4 page analysis. See: "(American Car) Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working" To determine if the switch is bad test the incoming and outgoing current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires, the turn signal switch has probably failed. This is a Buick design issue because keeping your foot on the brake or if the brake switch sticks keeping the brake lights on, the circuit will fail due to amperage overload.
The switch is located up under the dash near where the brake pedal pivots. You will need to unplug the connector, press the pedal down and, rotate the switch counter clockwise to remove.
It's under a panel door that says FUSES on it that's under the dash over the brake pedal.
