Hello

I was wondering if anyone could confirm a rough price for replacing a
1988 toyota corolla executive (UK) stop light switch. Personally i
would have thought it would cost about £10-£20. Is this right. I am
about to get the car MOT'd and yesterday noticed the lights weren't
working (not the fuse, not the bulbs).

I am more a bike man myself so I know how easy these things are to fit.
Is it the same in the car. I mean, is the unit somewhere accessible
from inside the car behind the pedal lever? If it is, does anyone know
somewhere I can buy 1 in London?

Thank you all for your time and help.

Sorry, I'm not that up on prices for brake light switches but your guesses
are probably not that far off.

A brake light switch is fairly easy to check and replace. It is accessible
from inside the car behind the pedal lever. Unplug the switch and use a
continuity tester or ohm meter to check for continuity when the switch
plunger is depressed, then check for 12 volts coming out of the switch when
the plunger is depressed.

A more common cause for lack of brake lights is a loose ground in the trunk
somewhere.
