#1 of 13 Wiring terminal on brake switch for 92 Lincoln Towncar
Apr 28, 2010 (9:26 am)
I was am in process of changing my brake switch on my 92 Lincoln Town car and noticed that the plastic that is on the wire terminal melted. Wondering why this happen, what I need to do next, and if I could put the new switch on without blowing the new switch. This is the second time in 2 yrs. I have had to replace the brake switch. First time for the melting of the terminal. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!

If prolonged illumination of the brake lights generates a hotter than ususal or designed intent of electric flow, perhaps a driver is unknowingly "riding the brakes".

I had that same problem with my Lincoln. It seems to be a common thing. You need a brake switch that is located on the back of your brake pedal. Have a good day!

Hello again Lockwood. Would be glad to help ya on this one. There is a plug to unplug off the switch and some sort of mounting device, like a cotter pin, to take off. Word of advice be careful not to break the cotter pin. Hope this helps! Have a good one!
