I mean...I have to depress the brake pedal prob 70% down, until the brake lights will light up...

I don't usually notice it ...
but today, I was watchin the people behind me (b\c of the 25cm of snow we are getting)...
and I'm just worried when they tailgate me, and I've already started stoppin (but brakes don't light up)...and they con't to go ...[=(]

If you put a little spacer between your pedal and the brake light sensor your problem will vanish. I had to .

Hadn't noticed, mine comes on with a slight press of the pedal.

Mine comes on after maybe like 25% of pedal travel. I notice it all the time and it annoys me.

Mine go on with the slightest tap of the pedal. A delay is definately not a good thing in the winter months especially.

I've done that mod and use it time to time for idiots. It's great to see them drop off your tail.

Did any of you try adjusting your brake light switch?

its quite easy to do. take the knee panel off. and look at the switch for the brake light. if you turn it i believe clockwise, it'll engage sooner when the brakes are pressed. one of my first mods. its much much safer.
