Stoplight/brake light switch location?
 
Hello everyone, new guy here.

I have a completely stock (no mods) 2004 C32 AMG with 86,XXX miles.
I would like to replace the stoplight/brakelight switch, but i cant find it. It is not where the brake pedal is, there isnt anything brakeswitch related there.:confused:

Thank you.

The Mercedes system shows the brake light switch for your VIN mounts where you show in the picture. Congrats on the wedding, I was US Army and lived in Charleston 19 years after my ETS

I just recently moved to Shelby, NC.

I will take my C32 apart this weekend and view its configuration.

Have you done any tweaking on your car?

I recommend installing a catch can immediately if not already done.

Thank you for your service to our country.

My C32 has a brake switch in the picture where your car has a bracket.

Engine will not crank, shifter stuck in park, everything else works issue solved.
 
I wanted to thank everyone here on this forum, you are the best.

I read a article somewhere that suggested replacing the brake/stoplight switch, My 2004 C32 AMG does not have a brake/stoplight switch at the brake pedal.
Looking at the wiring schematics, i found a "switch" at the brake booster (there are 2 sensors below the master cylinder, on the left is the diaphragm position sensor and on the right there is another sensor which looks like what may replaced the stoplight/brake switch).
I ordered a complete (with both sensors) used brake booster/master cylinder from ebay ($75.00) and that fixed my "no crank, shifter stuck in park, everything else works" issue.:smile:wink

Thanks.

Rising from the dead...

I have a C55 with the same issue and am having trouble figuring out what exact part I need to get. There is a lot of conflicting information. Does anyone else have experience trying to replace the brake light switch in a C55?
