I replaced the little rubber peice that presses against the brake switch but the lights still stay on. Is the brake switch the defective part? Do I need to replace it? I also found alot of broken little black peices of broken rubber/plastic. They dont match the rubber stopper I just got. Is there something else that could be causing the problem?
well seeing as it a year ago i sure hope i figured it out haha. i dont even have the car anymore but lemme try to help you out anyways. ifi you're just pressing one of the switches the brake light wont go off because you have to press both of the pressure switches back there. i didnt realize that both my rubber pieces were gone and it wasnt enough to replace just one.
Thanks, As I am reading other treads, I figure out I have 2 switch one for crusie control and one for brake. I only saw one and thats the one I was messing with. I think its the crusie control sw i was messing with, thats why nothing happen. I'll try again this afternoon.
For $1.50, it is called a Rubber Stopper and the part # is 46584-S0100. Aren't you glad you asked?
My cruise control on my '95 Altima stopped working a month or so ago.
Then, the other day, the brake lights stayed on, and I found the tell-tale rubber tip on the floor mat. I had found something similar around the time the cruise control stopped working, but I didn't have clue as what that was, and tossed the tip of the rubber stopper.
The guys at the Nissan Parts desk said "would you like a green rubber stopper or a white one". I chose the white one, and I'm glad I did, because, based on what I've read, the green rubber stopper is for the clutch pedal, and I drive an Automatic.
The Part Number sold to me was the 46584-SO100, now for just $2.24 each, plus tax.
Now, I have a question..... to install the rubber stoppers for the the brake and the cruise control, do I just push in the brake pedal hard, and then push the rubber stopper in the hole ? ? ?
I would think the rubber stoppers could be installed without unbolting anything.
