    Put this info here so it will last forever.
    This relate to Mazda Bongo Friendee Vans 1995 - 2001, also might apply to the Ford Freda but i havent confimed that.

    Anyway i had a Bongo Friendee, and the Rear Brake lights were not working.. So i checked the Fuses, Relays bulbs, wiring etc.
    This site FYI is Awesome for the Fuses, i wish someone would do this for every car... Not me

    So it wasnt any of those items, I pulled the Brake Light switch. all thats required is a 17mm Its pretty easy to get to just at the top of the break pedal. Even for a guy with large monkey hands like myself.
    Switch: (Full part number is: B00166490B)

    And as luck will have it.. its the same as a ton of local mazda's so no issues going to your local parts store and getting one for:
    Mazda MPV 1990 - 1998
    Mazda Miata - 1990 - 1998
    Mazda B2200 1990 - 1998
    and im sure even more models.. Its not hard to find.

    Sucess now the Bongo will pass its Out of Province inspection and my Client will be happy.

    Pajerist and tperkins like this.

    I had the same thing go on my Mazda Protege this winter. Same part number as well!

    After examining how the old one failed, On the new switch I opened it up and put a bunch of silicone grease in the contacts, should be good for life now.
