Haven"t post in forever.. I still have my ZX2, with over 217k mile now.. Critical week or so, my brake lights acquired stuck on. Also when i turned the headlights and the vehicle on and also off. Ns unplugged the battery because that now. I called and also asked a mechanic. Castle told me the is probably the brake light switch and also it would be under $100 to replace. I looked increase the component online and found it for $30-40, therefore I"m wondering if I have the right to switch it the end myself. I when replaced a reverse light switch on my 3000gt and also it wasn"t hard: unplug the connector and unscrew the switch, replace and reconnect- but I don"t recognize where the brake irradiate switch is on my zx2. If anyone has some directions or photos to aid out, please let me know.Thanks!

I looked under by the brake pedal and found 2-3 broken plastic blue pegs (looks like broken crayon pieces). I"m assumption: v those are spacers the somehow kept the lamp off. What are these and where can I obtain replacements? i read one more thread that said someone tape-recorded up pennies together a momentary fix, but can"t find that thread right now.. Thanks guys, y"all have got me ~ above the ideal track.
I believe those are components of the actual brake light switch I had a zx2 in the shop about a month earlier with the same issue.
Its more than most likely the rubber bumper top top the brake pedal. As soon as the pedal isn"t driven down, the pad contact the brake switch. You deserve to purchase them in ~ O"Reilys Auto components or your regional Ford dealer.

My 95 wagon is act the very same thing, however the lamp don"t stay on as soon as I rotate the vehicle off. Rather, the brake pedal acts as an ignition switch went he automobile is off. I push the pedal and my dash lamp come on, dinging and all. Also, once I close up door the ignition off and remove the key, if I store my foot on the brake the engine keeps running till I allow off. Ideas? Brake lights still remain on while I"m driving.

When this wake up on a wagon, the is generally the wiring in the tail gate that is the cause. (My guess: v is that the brake light wire is shorting come the rear wiper wiring.)The wires in the gate acquire pulled tight everytime the thing is opened and eventually the insulation will certainly crack and expose the wires. The division usually occur in the rubber boot between the tail gate and also the roof of the car.The best method to deal with this is to replace the harness however that is time consuming. The fast fix is the usage some extra wire and also a lot of butt connectors to cut and also splice the wires earlier together.Tapatalk
