How to Install 1993 Toyota Corolla Brake Light Switch
The brake light switch on a 1993 Toyota Corolla is a pressure-sensitive switch designed to illuminate the brake lights when the brake pedal is depressed. This switch is mounted above the brake pedal in a small bracket that allows it to maintain contact with the brake pedal lever. As the pedal travels downward the pedal lever releases pressure from the brake light switch, allowing it to illuminate the brake lights. Replacement brake light switches are available from auto parts stores and Toyota dealerships.
