There is an adjustment for the rear brake light switch, the front is non adjustable..either it works or it dont!! You will have to replace the switch if that is the problem. Did you check the connection on the switch ( front)???

Clicking and no light --

1) switch is bad
2) connector is loose

If not one of the above I'll give ya a million dollars. Well, maybe a nickel.

Of course model specific information is different but generally the switch is held on by one or two phillips head screws and mounts under the lever. Just follow the clicking sound as you apply and let off the brake. Just remove the screws and unplug wires going to it.

To absolutely rule out anything else, jumper the leads going to the switch (connect them using a wire) and turn on ignition switch. Brake light should be on. If you have the leads jumpered and the brake light does not come on then you have a problem somewhere else.

To test the switch, attach an ohm meter to it. As you push the button in and out the reading should go from infinite (error) to a number (not sure what that is for your switch).

Good luck
