Default Brake Light Help

I have a 1991 DS and wanting to add brake lights. I see there are many switches and kits. Just wondering what some of you guys have done? I need the brakes for the island we frequent.

Use a generic push button switch with rubber boot over button on the brake pedal right under the locking portion of the pedal as close to the center as possible.
You can find them at any speed shop, Ebay or even rear engine Snapper riding mowers use them.

I went with a universal motorcycle switch I got off am amazon. Been in three years so far with no problems. Its driven year round through water, mud, and snow. Hooked it up to the equalizer bar.
Don't know what a DS has under it, but you might make it work for you.

Won't that cause your brake lights to stay on when your brakes are in lock position?

My lights time out in 15 seconds. I also have a switch wired in the circuit to totally kill the brake lights when I'm hunting.

This seems like it would do the trick.

@Doubles Shooter Sorry I know this is an old post but what do you use to time out the lights?

The cut out was built into the light control. I have no idea of the brand of light kit. My golf cart guy had the complete kit in storage for years. He likes my homemade sausage a lot so we traded. Got the lights for pennies on the dollar.
