I have a 91' toyota corolla. My brake light will not go off on its own unless I wedge something under the pedal (Brakes still work fine). Would that be a brake light sensor? If so would it be a fairly easy fix or do I need a mechanic?
My car has 147000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The brake light switch lives under the dashboard near the top of the Brake pedal. The witch may be loose or broken, or there may be a problem with the pedal return spring. If you crawl under the dashboard with a flashlight and work the brake pedal by hand you can see the switch operating. Replacing the switch is not a big deal, but if you are not used to working in tight spaces and awkward positions, you may find it too hard. For help, contact YourMechanic. They can send a technician to your home or office to replace your brake light switch right there on the spot.
