Where is the connector for the brake light switch in a 1991 Buick Skylark 3 3L?
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.

Why would '97 Buick Skylark brake lights turn signals hazards all stop working at once while center brake light in rear window works fuses are good changed turn signal switch and still doesn't work?
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. Read More

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… Read More

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.

It won't have brake lights when disconnected so… Read More

Probably either a bad brake lamp switch, improper adjustment of the brake lamp switch or a bad turn signal switch. The brake lamp switch also contains the cruise disconnect switch, but often only the brake lamp portion will fail due to the higher current involved in running the brighter lamps. The switch develops resistance caused by carbon tracking on the contacts from the spark that's created whenever the switch changes states. Also, the brake lamp… Read More
