Punto 1999 break lights problem

Please help. Break lights not working changed off side light unit after discovering the original had filled up with water and corrosion.Still not working so changed bulbs, fuse and checked earth connection that's fine can't find any splits in wires leading up to the break lights. So can only be the switch under the break pedal or a wire loom problem. Can any one help?

Re: Punto 1999 break lights problem

Hey there
Glad you fixed the issue

If you posted in the Mk2 / Mk2b section (1999 - 2006)

You'd of probably got a quicker response and help

its rare for the brake switches to fail on punto's - but its a wear and tear item

An easy diagnosis for future reference is to jump the 2 terminals on the cars loom with a thick paper clip - if the lights come on = Then its got power and grounds and bulbs good = Saves trying to diagnose the switch

Alignement tho could have also been an issue
