2006 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 41000 miles
With the brake pedal released, the brake lights (on the back of the car) stay on. If I press the pedal slightly they go off. Then if I press it further down (how you would if you were stopping a little quickly) they come on. I have read a number of people online having the same problem, and the answer is to "adjust the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal". However, on my car there is no switch there. There is a metal rod that sticks about 6 inches off the left side of the brake pedal, perpendicular to the brake pedal lever. When you press the pedal it turns a white plastic switch (looks like if you make a "peace" sign with your fingers). That is the only switch I see anywhere near the brake pedal under the dash.
have the same problem?
