Usually in trunk by left or right hinge. It usually has a yellow
plastic case. I tried bypassing it before so brake lights work but
warning light stays on on dash and sometimes interferes with other
systems light ABS warning or something like that (i forget).

Mine failed while I was testing some trailer lights. Mine was in the boot on
the right hand side. I fixed mine by replacing the voltage drop link with a
piece of spring steel from a small spring.
I worked out the length of spring required by trial and error. The lamp on
the dash went out at the right resistance but came back on when a stop light
lamp was removed.
Mine has been working fine for many years now. I also got the low speed
heater fan speed working with a piece of a small spring as a low resistance.

Thanks for the help. I located the sensor and removed it. I tied the green/red
and green/white together for the stop lights. The light green and green tie
together for the tail lights. Leave the other wires disconnected to keep the
warning light out on the dash. Thanks, Joe
