1998 Nissan Maxima Brake lights staying on. I believe something plastic broke behind the switch because I found small black plastic pieces in the floor. would like to know what is supposed to be behind the switch.
JA: Have you checked the bulb? Could it be a faulty fuse?
Customer: How would a bulb or faulty fuze cause the lights to stay on?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I looked and saw the brake light switch is there in place and that something has to be behind it for it to work properly.

Hello I will help you with your question, Yes there is a plastic trim button in the hole of the bracket that the plunger of the brake switch rests against. If you stop at an autopart store and get a package of assorted trim buttons there will be one that fits the hole. Please let me know how I can help Thank you
