    No brake 'light' or 'lights'. The reason I ask is if both brake lights are not working you may find there is no problems back there.

    If the car is fitted with floor mats, you will find the drivers mat has moved forward and knocked the brake light wires off.

    good luck !!

    So it's both lights then ??

    If it's both lights try pulling the two wires off the brake switch (that's mounted on the brake pedal) and shorting them together with a peice of wire. If the brake lights then light up you brake switch is either dead or mis-adjusted.

    good luck!

    The car is 1992 TZS.
    Its 7 pin connector.
    I ternd the light on- ther was current 0n first and second pin -- from the left -- on the 7 pin connector. When viewed from the rear.
    Pressing the pedal ther was no current in all pins (in this connector)
    Which pin is the braKe?
    As you think the
    " brake switch (that's mounted on the brake pedal) "
    should be adjusted. How do I do that???
    Thanks

    If you lose it when the pedal is pushed down, I'd suggest you check your earths. One must be either broken or corroded.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Hi Guys, how about starting with the globes? Are the filaments ok? If so, work back from there.

    Frequently non working brake lights on a BX are caused by the flat plugs on the left side lights being corroded or dirty. Remove the fitting and carefully clean the plugs and sockets. All should be OK (of course check the globes and fuses too). Your indicators will probably also work better as a consequence.

    While you're at it, do the right side too - but these are fed from the left.

    Default brake light switch

    AFAIK the Bx switch is common only to BX.
    I think I paid about $40 for a new switch which is about $30 more than the bloody thing should be .
    You might try GSF/ Andyspares in uk but the shipping is the killer
