Subject: Re: Brake light switch?

Assuming you've got one of those funny right hand steering Brit models, the brake light switch is likely on what you might think of as the passenger's side. In any case, it's just behind the master cylinder (on the interior of the car, of course), controlled through a shaft connecting the two sides. Remove the fuzzy carpet-like fascia panel above where the passenger's feet would be (three screws, as I recall) and you'll see a bracket with one or two microswitches. My '89 9000 (Amuriken) is standard shift, and the clutch and brake pedals each have a separate switch which might be for either the cruise control or APC or something else. Above that switch, further up the bracket is the second switch. (It took me over a month to realize that there were two switches on my brake pedal... what a drag!) Anyhow, if yours isn't working, it's likely stuck in the disengaged position. You might not have to remove it to pull the plunger out and squirt some lubricant in there to restore its functionality. If you must remove the switch, there are two plastic tabs which must be pressed in to free it. Good luck!
