Default Brake Pedal Assembly

Have a 1991 EZ Go with a standard brake pedal (no brake light operation) want to replace or convert with a brake pedal that will operate brake lights, the pedal will operate brake lights but still allow lights to shut off with Park Brake set. Does anyone have a brake pedal or what will work or readily modified for this cart,, Thank You..

It may be easier to fit a micro switch somewhere where the brake pedal arm hits it for the brake lights. You could also use something like a horn button and install it on your pedal somewhere so when your foot is pressing the pedal, it pushes on the button...

The problem is that the cart is a 1991. I don't have anything in my EZGO OEM parts for a Marathon anymore. The TXT brake pedal w/ lights assembly is around $165.00 and won't fit your cart. This is whay I suggested the alternative

Two microswitches with the metal spring tangs will do it. Mount one that is contacted when the brake pedal is in the rested position. Run a fused power source to the common terminal and a wire to the NC terminal so that wire becomes hot when you depress the pedal. Mount another switch that is contacted by the parking brake linkage. Run the wire from the first switch to the common on the second switch. Connect a wire to the NC terminal and run it to the brake light. The first switch will sense the brake pedal movement and the second switch will open the circuit when the park brake is on.

Do a search on member Andy4639. He has a setup that accomplishes what you are after using a '49 Chevy truck brake switch. I think member gornoman did the same thing as well.

Correct PG, but neither of our installations is configured to accomodate the hill brake. I ended up with a toggle switch in the dash to control the circuit manually. I would like to install the relay/timer solution I have heard about, but I have never seen part numbers or sources.....

Just put a microswitch like I mentioned in my earlier post where the park linkage locks and it will open the circuit.

Thanks again for all the ideas and advice...

That's the Factory brake pedal assembly for a cart with brake lights. It is no longer available from EZGO for a Marathon cart...
