easy brake light switch check and replacement
I had to replace the brake light switch today. I found that if you remove the 10mm bolt holding the bracket to the pedal assembly(automatic tranny equipped) you will have an easer time prying the old switch out and installing the new one. If you are indoubt about the switch being good or bad, just connect an ohms meter across the top two terminals marked 1&2 on the side of the black plastic housing that the wires plug into. With the button depressed, 0 ohms. release the button and youll have a reading of around .5 or so. By the way, I bought one from advance auto and it didn't work. I went to o'rileys and took my meter this time and checked their unit at the counter and it was good. I now have brake lights and can put my top up and down.
