The cops pulled me over as I was told I had no brake lights. My mechanic said it may possibly be the brake light switch, which he said would cost $20.00 and labor would be $40.00. I looked it up and the cost elsewhere is $80.00 to $100.00. Is that a easy fix, and can you walk me through it, or can I find pictures on the internet for that?
