1991 Cadillac 409 engine won't shift out of Park


Lets start by checking your brake light switch.
Your car has a switch on the brake pedal that not only makes the brake lights come on, but also tells the transmission it can shift out of park.
This really may be 2 separate switches, but should be under the dashboard and both should "open" when you push the brake pedal down.
Take a good flashlight and look.
The switches are small, about the size of your thumb, and both should have 2 wires attached to them.
Be blessed.

2003 CROWN VIC IS STUCK IN PARK! WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


The sensor on the brake pedal is not working. The brake pedal must be pushed before the shift level will release and allow shifting. If you are holding in the brake but it is not letting you shift, the brake activation switch is not working properly and, therefore, not allowing you to shift out of park.

It is also possible that the fuse for the brake lights is out and not activating the switch but this is less likely.

Good luck,

Brake lights stay on


The most probable cause is a sticking brake light switch. The brake light is activated by a small switch mounted under the driver's side, up near the leg of the brake pedal. That switch is spring backed so that when you depress the pedal the shaft of the switch is let forward and turns on the brake light. That switch sometimes comes loose or half cocked in the housing and stays activated all the time until you let the brake pedal loose and the leg of the pedal depresses the switch shaft just enough to turn off the brake light. The solution is to replace the switch, at about 15 bucks at your Advance Store. or 10 bucks plus shipping on the internet. You can check when you leave the vehicle to see if the brake lights are still on. Mind you, this does not happen all the time as sometimes it is cured by the action of the brake pedal knocking the shaft back in line

Parking brake light comes on while driving battery


your parking brake has a switch. when you push your pedal it activates the switch .if your pedal is slack it would let the switch turn on without you even touching the pedal.
battery light going on and off while your driving would usually indicate that your alternator is not charging properly. or loose battery cable.

No brake lights


Dear Madam or Sir,

the cause of your concern is a defective brake pedal switch. Of course the correct operation of this switch is responsable to activate the brake lights but it also activates an interlock mechanism in the shift column, so you cannot put the lever out of P position without stepping on the brake pedal. This is meant as protective system to prevent the car from moving accidently.

Kind regards from Germany

95 tercel tail lights won't turn off


Stoplights are usually turned on by a switch mounted above the brake pedal. When the pedal is fully released, it presses on the switch and it breaks the circuit. When you press the pedal, it releases the switch and the circuit completes, turning on the lights.

Most likely cause of this is that the switch is either broken or misaligned.

Adjust the switch to be depressed when the pedal is up. If the lights turn off, you're done.

If this does not fix it, unplug the switch from the wiring harness. If this makes the lights go off, your switch is broken, buy a new one. If it does not, you have a short circuit in the wiring. You will need to trace the harness, find the damage and repair it by splicing or replacing the harness.

May be you could try these steps:
  1. 1 Check the brake-pedal switch. This small button behind the brake pedals is activated when you press down on the brake pedal and makes the brake light go on. Press the switch by hand to see if it's stuck. If it is, pressing it may force the stuck part.
  2. Step 2 Find the fuse for the brake light and pull it out. Remember to put it back in before driving again
  3. Step 3 Find the brake lightbulbs and remove them. Remember to put them back in before driving again.
  4. Step 4 Disconnect the negative battery cable. You will have to reconnect it again to start and drive your car.

Cruise control does not work


Replace the Brake light control switch located in front of the brake peddle under the dash this also turns the cruise off when braking. While driving put your foot behind the brake peddle and pull back toward you while doing this try your cruise if it works there are three possible causes or a combination of all three. Brake control Switch, Loose or sloppy brake pedal not activating the Brake switch properly or week brake pedal return spring. Good Luck.
