Re: Brake light switch
I've never installed one, maybe some of the other guys here. Seems like if it is a simple push type switch, you could install it on the body of the cart somewhere under the pedal so the pedal will just press it when pushed down. Just make sure it is wired so it is not active with the engine off.

Re: Brake light switch
My switch was installed on the brake pedal in a location where your foot pushes the plunger when you apply the brake.

Re: Brake light switch
Same prob here I have one of those switchs and it seem easy enough. Just drill and install in a place where your foot will push on it. Problem is, there is no place on the brake pedal that has enough room on the backside for the switch

Re: Brake light switch
True enough,I see no place at all with that type of switch to install on brake pedal work let alone drill 9\16th hole in it,Yamaha must need different type of switch:help:

Re: Brake light switch
Without seeing the switch in question, here is my view of the situation. The switch on my brake pedal projected less than 2 inches forward from the rear of the pedal. The clearance behind the pedal is at least 4 inches while standing on it. That should be enough clearance for the switch. I'm looking at yamaha 03's and 08's. Older carts could be less, but brake cable adjustments will bring the pedal up. I no longer have the cart with the switch in the pedal, but it worked great.

Re: Brake light switch
The ones I have seen for a car, could be mounted under the floor board. With your food off of the brake, the plunger would be all the way in and the lights are off, as you step on the pedal, it moves the pedal away from the plunger, the plunger comes out and the tail lights go on. Then you would let go of the pedal and it would depress the plunger again an the lights would go out.

Re: Brake light switch
The switch needs no mounting brackets. Just drill the 9/16 hole in the center upper portion of the brake pedal. Remove the jam nut from the plunger and stick the plunger thru the hole from front to rear. Install the jam nut and tighten. Run your wires from the electric source under the floor and up the brake pedal using zip ties. Attach wires to the 2 terminals. When your foot depresses the plunger, the switch completes the circuit and the brake lights come on. It doesn't look pretty but is functional!!!!
