My brake lights stayed on after exiting my vehicle for approx. 2 days. Naturally I drained my battery(boohoo) and car would not start. Called AAA, the guy jump started my car and told me the brake light switch was bad. I went to my mechanic, he ordered me a new switch, went to install it and ran into a problem. He told me that the white tip of switch was going through the hole in the brake pedal instead of engaging the switch properly, hence the brake lights stayed on. He tried a 2nd switch, same thing. I then went to dealer myself, came back with basically the same switch and again the brake lights stayed on. I am now riding w/o brake light switch, ergo, no brake lights. That's no good. Is there supposed to be a buffer preventing the tip of switch from going through the hole on the brake pedal?What's it called and where do I get it. And is there a diagram of what it looks like for proper installation?Thank you.
have the same problem?
