Your vehicles brake light switch has a simple, but important job: turn on the brake lights when the brake pedal is pushed.

Traditionally, the brake light switch directly controlled the brake lights on the vehicle. Today, vehicles use the brake light switch, to signal the vehicles body control module to turn on the brakes.

Additionally, the switch is responsible for letting your vehicle know you have pressed the brake pedal, allowing you shift out of park.

Common symptoms: 

  • Brake lights no illuminating
  • Unable to physically move the shift out of park.
  • Brake lights staying on
  • Brake lights flashing or flickering

How much will it cost?

The typical cost for the testing and replacement of a brake light switch is between $70-$120 for parts and labor.

The cost depends on your specific make, model and year. 

Here is what is included:

  • Testing of brake light switch
  • Replacement of faulty brake light switch if needed
  • Inspection of related components
  • Up to a lifetime warranty against defects
