Ceal Thanks rubyrick... I haven't checked it yet... exams are ganging up on me, but I'll soon be finished with them. I think I know what switch it is though and I don't think it's in the best condition, but I'll check better later.

rubyrick Sometimes the rear brake light switch just needs to be cleaned, as road grime can gunk it up and it won't work right. There's an adjusting nut that needs to be turned until the switch operates when the brake pedal is depressed 15mm. Don't turn the switch body, only the adjusting nut. Hold the switch body in place as you turn the nut.

Ceal Thanks, I'll give that a try...

If the rear brake switch is functioning you may need to adjust the switch upward by screwing counterclockwise. Grab the actuating spring @ the switch and pull down w/key on to test the switch.
