Brake lights flicker off
Last night I noticed something new. As I was leaving last night (after dark) I momentarily stepped on the brake pedal while I released the e-brake. I glanced in the rear-view door mirror as I stepped on the brake pedal and noticed that the brake lights came on when I hit the pedal (I always back into my driveway, so I could see then shining on the house), but then went off. As my foot kept pressing the pedal down, they came back on. So it's like they have a dead spot right after the pedal is depressed. I have no idea how long this has been happening.
What might cause this?
I've been thinking about this and the only thing I can come up w/ is possibly something I did. I replaced the pedal box over a year ago and I kind-of remember having issues when I hooked the brake pedal back up. I couldn't remember if the brake linkage was facing up or down.
I'm not really worried about it much. I've passed two state inspections since I replaced the pedal box, but I don't like what it's doing now.
