Brake lights stay on fuse prob??


Hi! :D So the brake lights stayed on and at first I thought the light bulb was short circuiting, so took that out, but that didn't work, it was so creepy though cause that never happened before, it was like someone had a foot on the brake pedal and never took it off.

Replacing the fuse tomorrow though...

At the top of the brake pedal arm, there is a switch you should inspect/adjust/replace possibly. You can see the switch in this online auction pic:

Sometimes the little rubber snubber on the brake pedal arm dries out and cracks off like a brittle plastic. If that happens, the brake light will remain on like you describe.
The little snubbers are still available from Toyota or available generically from a variety of parts houses. I fixed mine up with a little bolt and nut assembly through the brake pedal arm where I could adjust the bolt head clearance to contact the switch pin and then lock down the nut when I felt the proper clearance was achieved. :lachen:
Good luck, Tercelgirl

Thanks! Sure enough, it was the little plastic brittle on the brake, no fuse..but now I have another problem, my mechanic said that the pipe thats connected to the muffler is making some noise and its rotting, it may be need to be replaced, cause the car trembles along with it, how much would that be?? I have a 92 BTW.

So how much would that be?? Cause the catalytic converter was fixed about a few months ago, so I'm gonna have to double check that..

You need to look at it and see exactly what the issue is. Getting prices on every piece around rarely solves anything.

Hello, it was the flex pipe I believe, mechanic charged me 117 bucks, no more noisy sounds, but he said that I may need a timing belt changed cause a cracked seal is leaking oil into the right tire, so he wants to fix that whenever I can, the bottom of my car is not rusty or anything of all the noises it used to make..LOL
