Why dont my hand brake wont turn on brakelight

Remove switch from handlebar bracket, turn key on, brakelight should come on... depressing the plunger should cut it off. If not, replace the switch ( make sure the switch is plugged in first)

Starter motor will not engage

I am taking this as the starter not turning. You have safety switches on the brake pedal lever or clutch pedal lever. Sometimes the signal loss will even prevent the brakelights from working.

The drivers feet can hit and dislodge the safety switch or even break it. This prevents the power from reaching the starter solenoid. Check to see if you have brakelights.

No horn or turn signals or brakelight keeps blowing fuse

Hi Anonymous, you need to get out your test light and start tracking down the short. Start at the ignition switch, then the handlebar switch housings and work your way back to the fuses. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

Key will not turn on engin on 2007 volvo

Check your Brakelights. Some cars have a safety lockout which prevents starting your engine without your foot being on the brakepedal. If the switch on the brake pedal lever has been moved or broken by the Drivers' feet, it may not release the Key to turn.

If you lack Brakelights, then someone needs to go under the dash and attend to the Brake pedal lever switch.

Please rate my info.

check the brake switch located on the brake pedal lever under the dash. It is possible that it is bad or out of adjustment

Where is the brake fuse box located in my harley road glide 2008. barke light stuck on,blinkers working. think i blew a fuse.

Have you been working on anything on the right handlebar? If so, you probably broke the front brake light switch. This is a common occurrence. Some times they break on their own as well. From the bottom side of the brake lever on the handlebars, look up and see if you see a pin that comes out and rest against a tab on the lever. If so, press this back into the right handlebar switch housing to see if the brake light goes off. If it does and it only take a small amount of movement, you may can loosen the front master cylinder slightly and move it down against the right handlebar switch housing. If that doesn't work. I'm afraid you're going to have to replace the switch.

Good Luck

Rear brake light not working

The brake light is turned on and off by either of two switches on your bike. The front brake lever has a switch located in the right handlebar switch housing. When you squeeze the lever, a pad on the lever moves forward allowing the switch button to move forward making contact which in turn switches the brake light on.

The rear brake lever operates a plunger inside the rear brake master cylinder that pressurizes the rear brake and rear brake hose and line. The rear brake line has a tee fitting in it along it's run with a pressure switch in the tee. Once the pressure on the line gets high enough, the switch turns on the brake light.

If your rear brake light switch is not working, check to make sure the wires are on the prongs of the switch. If they are, replace the switch. It simply screws out and a new one screws in. Most of the time you don't have to bleed the brakes as long as you don't move the rear brake pedal with the switch out. Check the rear brake for proper operation prior to riding the bike.

Good Luck

Found out my brake lights are not working when the police pulled me over. Have a 2001 Celica. Checked the bulbs and fuse. I do not have an owners manual. What should I check next?

You can easily check your brakelight switch with a 12 volt test light. Probe the switch which is located on the brake pedal lever, make sure you have power coming in, and then depress the pedal by hand and make sure that there is power going out the other side of the switch. The brakelight switch is the only one with just two wires on the pedal. Thank you, Dana

Hi my horn, brakelight and indicators will not work any ideas ? On my yamaha dt50mx 1989

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The horn, brakelight and indicators all get power from the battery through a red wire, a fuse and another red wire. Do a backtrace using a testlight (instead of a voltmeter). Should you be interested, the wiring diagram of a Yamaha DT50MX maybe viewed here.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Televison: Toshiba Model 46L5200U1 with logo flash and then blank screen. I bought a TV LED/LCD Backlight tester, but am not 100% sure I used it correctly, or if I do have an issue or not. 1. How many LED/LCD strips does this TV have? 2. Wires from the LED/LCD's into the connector on the board. The connector (CN003)chart on the board says Pos1:black wire and says output. Pos2&3:Empty/Reserved. Pos4, 5, 6 & 7:white wires that are 151, 152, 153 and 154 respectively. It doesn't say anywhere on the board which are positive and negative. I put the Red lead into the hole of the black wire and the black lead in pos 4 for white wire. Then moved the black lead one at a time to the next 3 positions. Results: Pos4: 78.6 Pos5: 88.1 Pos6: 87.9 Pos7: 87.9 A. Is the above the correct test to do? I put the leads in the open holes of the disconnected wires to touch them as they would be if they were connected to the board. B. If this test is correct. Is Pos4 showing I have an issue with one or more of the LED/LCD's in a strip since it is below the others? All of them lite up the lights in the test for reference to this question. 3. If I didn't test question 2 correctly, I also did two other tests with the leads even though I had no idea which was positive and negative. Test 2: Pos4: Black lead and Pos5: Red lead with 92.4 reading Pos6: Black lead and Pos7: Red lead with 101 reading Test 3: Pos4: Red lead and Pos5: Black lead with 101 reading Pos6: Red lead and Pos7: Black lead with 101 reading Please let me know what you think and which test might be correct. I did watch a video and read the directions for the test, but I want to be certain before buying an LED/LCD strip or two. Or, if you think the results are within the correct limit and if I might have a different issue, what that issue might be? and, how to test that issue? I have a good multi-meter as well. I haven't used it much though, but with directions and I can do the testing with no problem. Thank you for your time.
