Brake Pedal Position Switch Replacement Service

What is the Brake Pedal Position Switch all about?

Every time you press the brake pedal, this pressure translates by way of a hydraulic system to the brake pads and wheel hubs. The pressure slows down the car or brings it to a complete halt. In addition, the brake pedal position switch also activates. This switch sends a signal to the brake lights on the rear of the car that light up to alert other drivers on the road that you’re slowing or stopping. If your car is in the cruise mode, the brake pedal position switch also works to deactivate the mode by lowering the flow of gasoline supply to the engine so that it slows.

Keep in mind:

  • The brake pedal position switch is an electromechanical device located near the floor of the car. It is highly sensitive to the dirt, grime, moisture, oil, grease and other contaminants brought in with your shoes.
  • Very often, your mechanic can fix the issue simply by checking that the electrical wiring connecting the brake pedal position switch is in place.
  • Loose wiring can also result in the brake lights not lighting up.

Our recommendation:

It is very essential that you have your mechanic check the brake pedal position switch at regular intervals as recommended by the owner’s manual. If the brake pedal position switch is faulty, it will not light up the brake lights to warn other drivers on the road and this can result in the possibility of a collision. In addition, it is very important that the cruise mode is deactivated when you press the brake pedal.

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

  • Brake lights come on but you haven’t pressed the brake pedal
  • Brake lights don’t come on even after you press the brake pedal
  • Added pressure is needed for the brake lights to come on or cruise control to deactivate

Driving your car with a faulty brake pedal position switch can be a safety hazard on the road. In addition, since this device works to deactivate the cruise mode, you absolutely need it to perform efficiently.
