Late model Harley's have been having a problem with the rear brake light switch.
Replace.

A quick test is to unplug the two wires from the brake light switch, and jump them together with ignition on and see if the brake light illuminates.

SOURCE: My rear tail light does not work when the front

You should have two filaments in the reat taillight lamp, one for tail light and one for brake light. You are not confusing these filaments/functions are you?

What you seem to be saying to me is that you have a lamp that had no tail light filament (burned out) but does have a brake light filament still intact.

Remove the light and check it visually and/or with a contunity tester.

I hope this helps you ...

If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again

form the sound of it you need a new clutch pak in the starter. Its pretty simply fix. don't let them sell u a new starter just a clutch pak for the starter. I take it by spinning u are not talking about the motor turning over. If its turning over then its not the starter.

Follow the brake line from the rear of the rear brake master cylinder until you get to a round metal thing with two wires attached to it screwed into a Tee fitting. This is the rear brake light switch.

SOURCE: Hello, I'm changing rear break pads on my softail

I'm going to attach a photo to this solution. The bolts you are taking out hold the caliper together. You don't want to take these out to simply replace the pads. If you're rebuilding the caliper, you'll have to split the caliper to get the pistons out. But, just to replace the pads. You'll see two pins (#35 on the pic) that run across the between the two halves of the caliper. These pins hold the pads into the caliper.

First you must use a large screwdriver to pry the old pads apart. You must get the pistons seated fully down into the caliper. Once you get the pistons seated, drive these pins out to the rear of the caliper. Lift the pads out and drop the new pads in with the fiber side towards the rotor. Do not put the pads in with metal to metal. Don't laugh, i've seen it done before. Then install on pin, install the spring plate that holds the pins in and the brake pads tight, and finally the last pin.

Since you broke the torque on the bolts that hold the caliper together, make sure they are tight. You may have to bleed the brakes as well. Make sure you have a full firm brake pedal and test the brakes to make sure they work before riding the bike.

Break light works with hand lever not foot pedal


Hi Anonymous, always check bulbs and fuses first, then follow the rear brake line from the rear brake master cylinder towards the rear brake caliper when you come to the metal tee you found out where the rear brake light switch lives. Use a test light to check for continuity. Good luck

Brake light does not work 2007 fxstc harley


Hi Anonymous, always check the bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light.

Tail light and foot pedal brake light does not work but hand lever brake light works.


Probably a bulb/ rear brake switch combination. If your front brake switch is working, then half of the bulb is working. No taillight issue, probably a bulb. No rear brake light, probably the rear brake switch. Located on the lower right rear of the frame, behind the exhaust. Check for power on the orange/white wire at switch. If you have that then check for power on the other terminal of the switch while pushing on the pedal. The rear brake switch is hydraulically operated so you must have adequate pressure to activate it.

I have a 200 heritage softail classic the brake light stays on and i dissconnected the pressure switgh for the foot brake and the light stays on. So I guess it's the hand brake switch that is shot. If...


If you disconnected the pressure switch for the rear brake and the light is still on, your deduction of a bad front brake light switch is right on. There is nothing else on the bike that would make the rear brake light come on. If you've moved handlebar switch housing or the master cylinder, make sure that they are positioned snugl against each other. Additonally, I've been reading where wear in the lever and pivot pin combine to make the switch not work. Replacing the lever and pivot pin may resolve the problem. To test, move the front master cylinder away from the switch housing and manually operate the switch to see if the switch is or is not working correctly.

Good Luck

92 SOFTAIL/ NO RH INDICATORS/BRAKE LIGHT THRU FRONT BRAKE LEVER


I'm not sure if I understand exactly what your problem is. The right hand indicators have nothing to do with the brake lever. The brake light may not be working when you pull the front brake lever due to a bad front break light switch that is located in the right handlebar switch housing. I can send you a schematic if you'll contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

My brake light was not working so I replaced the bulb, it still doesnt work with handlebar lever or foot pedal.


Check circuit breakers/fuses for proper operation. If circuit breakers/fuses ok, then could be a wire problem that would be common with both brake light switches, most liklely in rear fender area. You do have the switch on when checking brake light?
