Brake light switches are basic line pressure switches that are used to switch on the brake lights when the pressure in the brake system rises, i.e. under braking. More than one switch is often used to highlight brake system failure in multi-line systems.
SMPE offers a range of vehicle management components which are factory tested and come with a 12-month warranty.
The company, home of the Intermotor, Fuel Parts and Lemark brands, has embarked on an intensive strategy to extend application coverage across many of its product ranges as part of ongoing catalogue improvements – immediately accessible through TecDoc – enabling quicker stock turnaround for factors.
SMPE has created one of the strongest European aftermarket programmes available, via a range of trusted brands which are firmly established throughout all tiers of distribution.

- Brake fluid leaks from the switch are also common.
- Replacement is the only cure when failure occurs.
- It is necessary to fully bleed the brake hydraulic system once the new switch has been fitted.
