Tail light and brake light has stopped working YZF-R125


Hi, Anonymous tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
Before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Rear brake light does not come on when brake pedal applied


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

2006 FLSTC braking is intermittent lighting. Brakes work but lights don't always show.


If you know that the bulb inside the brake light is new/good and the light always works with the front brake, then you have a bad hydraulic brake light switch in/on the rear brake line/hose.

Stop light will not turn off


Hi,

If you are referring to the dashboard brake light indicator, then it could possibly mean:
  • brake fluid in reservoir needs a refill;
  • any of the brake pads needs replacement (it is preferable to replace all at the same time)
  • problem with the brake bypass circuitry of an onboard DVD video player (if one is installed).
If you are referring to the rear brake lights, then it can only mean that there is a short in the wiring harness leading to the rear of the car more specifically involving the rear brake light wire and either an always on +12 or an ignition on +12. To my knowledge there is no always on B+12 wire in the rear harness and the only ignition on B+12 would be the one going to the fuel pump.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
