To All,

The best way to fix the brake light switch is to wire in a modern, normally 
on, plunger type brake light switch. This type of switch is very important if 
you have cruise control, since it will turn the brake lights on and shut the 
control off, as soon as you touch the brake pedal, rather then after the 
pressure builds up in the system.

There are many switches available at auto parts stores. I prefer the all 
metal ones with more durable mounting threads. Support the switch with a simple 
bracket from the under side of the heater box so that it is activated by the 
brake pedal arm. The further the contact point is from the arm pivot the better.

Tap one wire into the green and purple wire that goes to the brake lights 
under the left side of the dash by substituting the original connector with one 
of the standard dual connectors. Connect the other wire to any all green wire 
found under the dash. If the original switch is not leaking, it can be left in 
as a redundant switch.
