Brake Light Switch

Twice in the past couple days I have gone out and found my brake lights on.


If I pump the pedal a couple times the lights go off and stay off.


If that indicating a pressure loss in the brake system or a bad brake light switch?

Instead of pushing on the brake pedal lift up. If light goes out, might be just an adjustment at the brake pedal. See if you have a plunger type switch at pedal if so just an adjustment might be all that's needed.

Replace the switch.
C1AZ-13480-A (replaced 0A-13480) .. Stop Lamp Switch (Motorcraft SW-24) / Available from Ford & auto parts stores.

Applications: Myriad 1940/66 FoMoCo vehicles.

This switch is pressure activated and is notorious for getting gummed up with dirty brake fluid. It's located at the front of the master cylinder.

There's no way to adjust the brake pedal and the plunger type switch (located on the pedal itself) was introduced in 1967. 1967 is one year only, 1968/72's use a different switch.
