Brake Light Switch Replacement Service

What is the Brake Light Switch all about?

When driving, brake lights notify people behind you that you are slowing down or stopping. If your brake lights do not work, you are at risk for causing accidents.

The brake light switch is connected to the brake pedal of the car. When you step on the brake pedal, the brake lights turn on. If the switch is faulty, the brake lights will not work.

Keep in mind:

  • Although uncommon, sometimes the electrical wires connected to the switch break. In that case, the mechanic will need to replace the electrical connector.
  • A brake light switch failure can affect the operation of the shift interlock system and not allow the driver to shift from Park to Drive.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake light switch, circuit, and fuses.
  • Remove and replace the brake light switch if not working.
  • Replace the fuse if it is blown.
  • Check operation of the brake lights.
  • Verify the vehicle can be shifted from Park to Drive.

Our recommendation:

The brake lights and brake switch should be inspected regularly as part of a major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Light Switch?

  • Brake lights not working.
  • Not being able to shift out of Park.

How important is this service?

When you depress the brake pedal, the brake light switch sends a signal to your brake lights, and turns them on. Brake lights are an important safety feature (and a legal necessity), but they rely on the brake light switch to turn them on. Without a functioning brake light switch, there will be no communication between your brake pedal and your brake lights.

David made an initial diagnosis based upon quite proper analysis of the problem (a failed brake switch connection to the auto change lever). When this did not cure the fault he was determined to ascertain the cause of the problem and spent a lengthy period of time stripping down the auto change console area eventually finding a manufacturer's fault whereby a trapped wire during initial making of the vehicle eventually led to that wire being severed and fried. Looking at it, this would have been a very difficult fault to have discovered for the average mechanic at a main dealer in my view, but then David is no 'average' auto mechanic. He was meticulous in eliminating possible causes and finding this minute problem in a very small and tight area of the constructed transmission unit was indeed an incredible feat of attention to detail. Well done David and thank you. I will be recommending you to others and using your company again.

Duane is a true professional with a lot of integrity. Another mechanic told me I needed a starter replacement and Duane identified the true issue with my vehicle and saved me over $500 in work I didn't need! I will be requesting Duane exclusively in the future!
