Want to learn more about Brake Light Switch replacements in Bristol?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a brake light switch replacement involve?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake light system and corresponding switch.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty brake light switch.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will test the lights again to ensure the light functions properly.

Can I do a brake light switch replacement myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a brake light switch replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a bad brake light switch?

  • When none of the brake lights work and the fuses and bulbs have been checked.
  • The brake lights remain on, even without the pedal being depressed.
  • If one brake light works though, no matter how many others do not, it is not the brake light switch at fault.

How long will a brake light switch replacement take?

A brake light switch replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

Can you still drive with a faulty brake light switch?

Driving with either the brake lights remaining on or none of the brake lights turning on is not only dangerous, it is against the law as well, so it’s a repair that you need to get done as soon as you are made aware of the issue.

How often should I replace the brake light switch?

There are no serviceable elements in a brake light switch, so if one becomes faulty, it is simply replaced. Should your brake lights cease to function in their entirety then the main cause will be a faulty switch. This can also be the case if your brake lights fail to switch off, even though there is no pressure on the brake pedal.

How common is a brake light switch replacement?

It happens occasionally, but a brake light switch replacement is not a frequent issue.

How does a brake light switch work?

The brake light switch is usually a simple on/off switch that completes the electrical circuit to the lamps that is activated by the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is in the up position, the brake light switch will be off, just like a lamp switch in the house. When the brake pedal is pressed down, this releases the plunger in the switch and the contacts meet to complete the electric circuit to the brake lights.

In some vehicles it is a simple push in and twist plunger switch but in other it can be more complex than that.

How much does a Brake Light Switch replacement cost in Bristol?

The average cost of a Brake Light Switch replacement in Bristol is on average between £45 and £65. Ultimately the cost for a Brake Light Switch replacement in Bristol depends on the make and model of your car.
