Complaint - Exterior Lighting

THE BRAKE LIGHTS WERE ON CONTINUOUSLY, EVEN WHEN VEHICLE WAS PARKED WITH KEY OUT OF IGNITION. UPON FURTHER ANALYSIS, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE BRAKE SWITCH, ATTACHED TO THE BRAKE PEDAL, WAS SHORTED IN THE CLOSED POSITION. I REMOVED THE SWITCH, PRIED THE YELLOW COVER OFF TO THE VIEW INSIDE. THE CONTACTS WERE CLOSED. I THEN FORCED THE SWITCH TO OPEN, NOT SURE IF THE POINTS WERE FUSED TOGETHER OR IF THE PLASTIC HOUSING WAS JAMMED PREVENTING THE SWITCH FROM OPENING. I SANDED THE CONTACT AND REINSTALLED... THE FIX WORKED. I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP TO PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT ONLY TO FIND OUT THE DESIGN HAS CHANGED AND THERE IS A WHOLE KIT REQUIRED TO REPLACE THE SWITCH.
