How to Install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit on a 2011 Chevrolet HHR


Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to be showing you how to install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit. Part number is RM-751428. Now to begin the installation of our brake light switch, which is required in this application for the InvisiBrake. We want to install the switch into its bracket. I'm going to leave it at its shallowest setting and then we can adjust with this nut here on the back, how far out that's going to stick. As we turn this, it'll allow that switch to come further and further through that bracket, allowing us to fine tune our adjustment. Before we get this all the way up underneath our dashboard, I want to take care of getting it pre wired here.

Let's strip both leads coming out here. Let's take a couple of supplied blue butt connectors and slide those on. Get them crimped down. Then my monitor wire, I'm just going to get a rough figure on how much of that, that I'm going to need. I'm going to clip it off.

I'm going to strip it back and attach it to one of those butt connectors. The other side is going to go to the length of the wire that has the ten amp fuse holder included. Now that our pre wire is taken care of here. The bracket is going to mount on a stud. You can see the hole right here, that's right up, kind of just above the steering column. See it sticking out right here Slide our bracket into position on it.

Now we'll take our flat washer, slide it on just behind our bracket there. Also our lock washer and then our provided nut. Now we want to use a thirteen millimeter ratchet. Just start tightening that down a little bit. Tight enough to where it's kind of tough to move, but not so tight that you can't move it. Here you'll see our switch functioning properly, as we press our pedal, you're going to see that plunger that comes out.

We release the pedal, we want that to fully retract that plunger, push it all the way back into our switch. Ours is sitting right where we want it, but we can use these nuts to adjust that if necessary. To power that brake light switch, or to give it the voltage it needs to send our signal up to our LED and our coach, what we're going to do is use the power wire that comes from our InvisiBrake box. This is a twenty amp power wire. We're using a ten amp fuse, so we're in good shape there. Just need to separate it from that black wire. To do that you'll either use a utility knife, or something small. You just barely want to go right in between them. You don't want to cut into either one of them. I'll spread that out a little bit. Just trim that wire. Remember we don't have this hooked up to any kind of power as of yet. Something we're going to do as our last step in our InvisiBrake install here. We are going to strip both ends of that back. Strip the end of our brake light switch wire like that. Now to make our connections, we're going to be using a butt connector splice technique here. I'm just going to take a larger butt connector and slide that on. I want to make sure it goes over both of my wires there. Then I'll just have to crimp that down. Then we can slide that over to this side of the wire and that will make our continuation for us. We'll just pull on each of our wires, to make sure they're good and secure. We'll use a couple of zip ties and tidy up our excess. All right, now that fuse holder will be located somewhere we can find it if we need to, but out of the way enough so if we don't, we won't have to see it all the time. All right, with our switch working properly that's going to complete the installation of the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit, part number RM-751428 on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR.
