    Default 306 brake lights

    My 306 just failed rego because the brake lights are on all the time. My mechanic has no clue how to fix this and my rego is out today. Any suggestions?

    It's probably the brake light switch being stuck "on", this could be replaced with a new or used part. Some wriggling under the dash and a bit of swearing, but nothing major.

    The brake light switch has a whitish or maroon coloured plug on it, and it's tucked up near the top of where your brake pedal mounts.

    Likely the switch under the pedal. I've done mine the in Coupe, and the genuine part from Peugeot was about $40 (for memory). My neighbour's Accord had this issue and I managed to sort it out for her without sourcing a new part.

    So I had a feel around and took it to a different mechanic today who still can't find the switch. Any other ideas?
    Next step is an electrician and hope that he can find it. I'd rather not spend the money if I can help it.

    From memory, it sits in front of the brake pedal pivot-up high. A mirror can be a handy accessory for a mechanic when looking for such things under the dash!

    You have to pull the bottom steering switch cover off, then undo the 4 nuts that hold the steering column to the box section above and let the steering wheel and its column drop a bit, the switch is in the box section that the steering column drops out of, near the firewall. The switch is a push fit into its position and it must be fiddled with a bit by trial and error to make sure it works. You will need a new switch. Probably 20 minutes work all up.

    If your car is auto the brake light switch is the one closest to the passenger side.

    Good Luck
