    To check this, what am I looking for? How would I know if the brake light switch is defaulted?

    Thank you. You've been lots of help. I'm going to check this out today.

    Do you think it could be the multi function switch instead?

    I was told by AAMCO that it was the actuator and the micro switch. What ever the micro switch is and those parts are discontinued by Toyota.

    Don't know what else to do. I asked about the brk light switch and they said that it wasn't that. It seems like they went from the most difficult stuff first to the most simple. In other words going backwards.

    I thought they were supposed to start with the simple stuff first then the most difficult. I think I was BS'd. What do you think about everything?

    Did YOU ever have someone besides Ammco stand behind your car and WATCH the brake lights???? Why ask for advice online , only to bring it to a place you end up questioning? I'm confused....

    I took it there after I got the advice online just to match things up because I couldn't find the parts for it.
