Thank He took it apart and isn't sure it is correctly reinstalled. I will check at library tomorrow. The car wouldn't release from park but I found the temporary fix. As you may know this problem sometimes includes the brake lights not working. He thought the problem was a broken wire therefore he didn't replace the brake switch. He put the old one in (tried to) So we still have no lights and have to put the car in nuetral to start. Thank you, Barbara

1. Disconnect the connector from the Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch.
NOTE: Locking tab must be lifted before stoplight switch electrical connector can be removed.
2. Remove hairpin retainer and white nylon washer. Slide Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch and push rod away from pedal. Remove Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch by sliding it down.
NOTE: Since the switch side plate nearest the brake pedal is slotted, it is not necessary to remove the brake master cylinder push rod black bushing or white speed control deactivate switch bracket nearest the pedal arm from the brake pedal pin.
1. Position brake pedal position (BPP) switch so U-shaped side is nearest pedal and directly over/under pin. The black bushing must be in position in push rod eyelet with washer face on side away from brake pedal arm.
CAUTION: Do not substitute other types of pin retainers. Replace only with production hairpin retainer.
2. Slide Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch up and down, trapping master cylinder push rod and black bushing between switch side plates. Push Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch and push rod assembly firmly toward brake pedal arm. Assemble outside white nylon washer to brake pedal pin. Install hairpin retainer to trap whole assembly.
3. Assemble wire harness connector to Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch.
NOTE: Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch wire harness must have sufficient length to travel with Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch during full stroke at pedal. If wire length is insufficient, reroute harness or repair as required.
4. Check Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch for proper operation. Stoplamps should illuminate with less than 27 N (6 lbs) applied to brake pedal at pad.
