Don if the brake light in the back glass illuminates when the brake pedal is pushed doesn't that mean the switch is good?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

so u r dis regarding the

'crash avoidance light controlled by the brake pedal?

Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 3 years ago

.

please wait for response, as it takes time to type & look at diagrams
in response to the back glass;

Yes, that was not mentioned.......
Then you need to test the Rear Harness connection into the Turn Signal Switch on the WHITE wire with Brake Pedal down

Relist: I still need help.
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 3 years ago

I am sorry for what appears to be Bad Service, but I can only answer to the Information you provide.
IF you are referring to the ORANGE wire at the Brake Switch

IF there is Voltage + on the ORANGE wire & there is NO Voltage + on the WHITE wire with Brake Pedal pushed, then REPLACE the Switch, as the Switch appears to be bad
ORANGE wire supplies Voltage + to the WHITE wire thru Switch when Pedal is pushed
