Symptoms:

When servicing the stop light switch or wiring connector, the stop light switch wiring connector may be difficult to remove from stop light switch. Attempts to remove the wiring connector may damage the insulator wedge or the switch itself.  

Repair: 

This bulletin involves removing the stop light switch with wiring connector attached as an assembly before disconnecting the wiring connector.

1. Remove the stop light switch, with wiring connector still attached to the switch, by turning the switch counterclockwise 1/16 turn and pulling straight out of the mounting bracket.

2. Depress and hold down both locking tabs on the "blue" wiring insulator wedge and pull the wiring connector from the stop light switch insulator, Figure 1.

NOTE: DISCONNECTING THE WIRING CONNECTOR HARNESS FROM THE SWITCH BY PULLING ON THE WIRING MAY RESULT IN OPEN CIRCUITS.

 

Figure 1

3. To remove the "blue,, wedge insert a small screwdriver between the top of the wiring connector insulator and the wedge and prying up while pushing the wedge out towards the wire harness, Figure 2.
Figure 2

4. To reinstall the wiring harness connector into the stop light switch, reinstall the connector wedge into the connector, then insert the wiring harness connector into the stop light switch assembly and finally install the stop lamp switch assembly into the mounting bracket and secure it by rotating the switch clockwise approximately 1/16 of a turn. If a new stop light switch is being installed, follow the adjustment procedure in the appropriate service manual.
