Sounds like a wiring problem, rather than the switch.
One wire should be HOT.

Check fuses, and follow front brake light switch wiring checking connectors.

Sorry but I don't have a wiring diagram that I can send you but I may can offer a bit of help.

Your passing lamps are simply wired into a hot circuit somewhere. A lot of schematics don't show them because they are considered "add ons". They also may have a fuse inline with the "hot" wire. They have only one wire that connects them to the bike with the rest being inside the "light bar" itself. Find the wire coming out of the center of the "light bar" and trace it back to where it hooks up. Sorry but that's the best I can do on this one.

On your front brake light, there is a switch located inside your right hand switch housing where your throttle is located. It is a plunger type switch that is activated when you pull the front brake lever. A simple test of the switch is to loosen the bolts of the master cylinder and slide it towards the center of the handlebars. If the switch is good, the brake light will come on. If the switch is bad, it will not.

To get to the switch, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart. First, loosen the throttle cables at the adjusters and then remove the two bolts that hold the switch housing halves together. Carefully open up the switch housing. You will see the small switch in the front of the housing. You'll have to desolder the wires, replace the switch with a new one, and resolder the wires to the new switch.

Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly. Make sure you slide the master cylinder all the way back against the switch housing or the brake light will stay on constantly. Readjust the throttle cables and check for proper operation. You don't want your throttle sticking.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: Why wont my brake light

Oh yeah, I've run into this before. The ohm meter says the rear brake switch is good but the light says different because it won't light. The switch is indeed bad. What happens is the switch says it's good when checked with the ohm meter because the meter is designed not load the circuit being tested. The light on the other hand, puts a load on the switch and the resistance of the switch will not allow enough current to pass through. Replace the rear brake switch and your light will probably work.

Good Luck

SOURCE: i was riding up hill

The ignition is generated simultaneously in both cylinders: if you get it to a cylinder it means that the coil and the electronics pack is operational = the defect is located after them.
So replace the sparkplug - it might be shorted. If you still don't get spark then the spark wire for the rear one is interrupted - replace it.

Front parking lights stopped working. Checked all fuses with tester under bonnet and inside car. All fuses and relays etc tested aok. All other lights function well. I traced the parker lights green wire...


Not the switch, or the rears would not be working. Since the green wire powers the rear lights, it has power. So maybe it's the ground connection to the front lights, right? Do you measure battery voltage on the green wire at the back of the light socket connector? If yes, then try moving your negative lead to the w/bl terminal of the connector...

Hey Strech thanks again but my bike only has one terminal board and it has 9 places for connections and it bolts behind the coil right behind the back jug


The wiring schematic shows 11 terminals (posts), but 2 aren't used, so 9 sounds about right.
Beings yours is probably mounted vertically, let's say #1 is at the top, and #9 is at the bottom.

#1 should have a VIOLET wire going to the LEFT REAR TURN SIGNAL (disregard all the turn signal info if you're not running turn signals), a BLACK wire going to the LEFT FRONT TURN SIGNAL, and a VIOLET wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER SWITCH. THREE WIRES TOTAL

#2 should have a BROWN wire going to the RIGHT REAR TURN SIGNAL, a BLACK wire going to the RIGHT FRONT TURN SIGNAL, and a BROWN wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER SWITCH.
THREE WIRES TOTAL

#3 should have an ORANGE wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER (NOT the flasher switch!), an ORANGE wire going to the DIRECTION SIGNAL FLASHER, an ORANGE wire going to the HORN SWITCH, an ORANGE wire going to the ACCESSORIES CIRCUIT BREAKER, and an ORANGE wire going to the FRONT STOP LIGHT SWITCH (this is a HOT lead, that powers all the above listed)
FIVE WIRES TOTAL

#4 should have a BLACK wire going to the STARTER BUTTON, and a BLACK wire going to the #3 lug of the STARTER RELAY. TWO WIRES TOTAL

#5 should have a GRAY wire going to the ENGINE STOP SWITCH (kill switch), and a GRAY wire going to the IGNITION CIRCUIT BREAKER.
TWO WIRES TOTAL

#6 should have a WHITE wire going to the HEADLIGHT, a WHITE wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (dimmer switch), and a WHITE wire, further on connected to a BLACK wire, going to the HIGH BEAM INDICATOR LIGHT.
THREE WIRES TOTAL

#7 should have a YELLOW wire going to the HEADLIGHT, and a YELLOW wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (dimmer switch)
TWO WIRES TOTAL

#8 should have a BLUE wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (this is the HOT lead), and a BLUE wire going to the LIGHTING CIRCUIT BREAKER.
TWO WIRES TOTAL

#9 (actually #10 on the wiring diagram, #s 9 and 11 are not used) should have a RED wire going to the FRONT STOP LIGHT SWITCH, and a RED wire going to BOTH the RED wire of the STOP LIGHT, AND the REAR STOP LIGHT SWITCH.
TWO WIRES TOTAL

Now, for the DISCLAIMER:

Your wiring might have been altered in the past, the colors might not be the same, and it is UP TO YOU to verify where/what the opposite ends of each wire connects to.
Again, the multimeter is handy for this.
Use it in OHM mode to act as a continuity tester.

ANYTIME you are working on the electrical system, ALWAYS disconnect the battery to avoid a short!!!!!

I have a 2002 GMC 1500hd 4x4 6.0 gas engine. Have no break lights. Tail lights and turn signals work fine. Replaced fuses and stop light switch and still have no break lights


GM had a lot of problems with the circuit boards that house the rear lights. My suggestion is to use a test light clip one end to the trucks body parts then remove brake light switch the orange wire should light the bulb on test light this is the power wire, the white wire is the stop light circuit with switch out this also should be lite up. Drop down turn signal switch connector the brake lamp wire goes up the turn signal switch and comes back down the yellow and green wires no power there it is a bad turn signal switch. If Ok Now remove one tail lamp assembly unplug harness and test for power if still have no power trace wiring back to fire wall and check at bulkhead connector. IF ok then circuit board is bad.

Rear brake light wont work when bake break is pushed only when front is pushed it works


Examine the rear brake pedal and linkage....there should be a light spring that pulls on the brake switch when you push the pedal down...possibly the spring broke and fell off.
If all is well...there should be a connector nearby for the switch...usually 2 wires....12 V power in on one, and power out to brake light on the other. With a multimeter, unhook connector and with key on...you should have 12 V on one of the two wires in the harness...if you don't...there is a harness issue.
If you have power to the switch, now test for continuity (ohms) across the unhooked switch wires ...should be open (no continuity ) with pedal up, and when you press down pedal...the switch should close and show very low ohms continuity. If you cannot get continuity...normally there is an adjustment to move3 the switch out further so the spring from the pedal pulls on the switch plunger more...if your are unable to get continuity by adjusting switch mount..replace switch..
