alittle1 Put a manual brake light switch on like this one: http://www.aaaaautomotive.com/Shop/C...id/0/SFV/32785

no more worries about pressure in the line. Only 10 bucks!!!

vicrod Using a test light, with the wires connected to the brake light switch, probe each pin on the brake light switch and find the hot wire. This is the hot feed from the fuse block.
Next probe the other pin on the brake light switch. Have someone press the brake pedal. This should light the test light. If not the brake light switch is bad. This assumes the brakes are working on the car.

Joe G Those pressure switches are notoriously failure prone, especially the ones produced in the past 20 years or so. If you want reliable brake lights, forget about the pressure switch and just use a mechanical brake light switch.

I see you have posted the same question several times. If you're having trouble finding your previous posts, try this link:

Good Luck.....
