Recently bought this vehicle. Overall fairly happy with it; but the
brake light drives me nutts in the dark!
When the brake is applied the lights come on almost immediately, as
But, say when the brake is all the way down, and I let it go for as
little as a milimeter, the light goes out. If this is done repeatedly,
such as when driving at low speed in a traffic jam, the result is that
the brake lights flicker like hell.
I'd prefer the light to go off only when the pedal reaches the fully
released position, or almost.
In previous cars I've owned this kind of adjustment was easy to do, by
bending the brake switch mount a bit.
The brake switch in this vehicle however seems to have a mind of its
own. Why is it that the on/off position isn't the same (such as you
would expect in a regular switch). Is there some kind of (electronic)
Also, I've had to follow my own car a couple of times, and it's no fun
looking at those flickering lights: you just don't know if the car is
stopping, or going forward! And I assume many other drivers think the
same; so for safety's sake I'd like to "fix" this brake light
Anyway, if there is a simple way to adjust this thing so that the
light stays on longer then I'd really like to hear it.
Thanks in advance,
