Brake light does not always work with front brake - Ninja 250

I have a 2004 Ninja 250. The front brake lever only sometimes triggers the brake light. Looks like a bad contact or brake switch problem. The rear brake light works fine. Any advice?

Check the wiring connections to the front brake switch. If all OK, then it could be the switch.

Brake light wont turn off


Front brake light switch.
Sometimes, the plunger gets gummed up, and won't spring back out. You might try cleaning with some electrical contact cleaner (Radio Shack)
Other times, the proper procedure wasn't followed when installing the front master cylinder, breaking off the "nub" on the switch that works off the brake lever. If so, $17 part and some soldering.
Either problem will cause the brake light not to turn off.

2003 Honda XR 125 L front brake light lever not working


Hi, Kunal 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.

My brake light on my 06 Softail standard is always on as if my brake level is depressed.


There are two brake light switches on your bike. One for the front brake and it's located in the right handlebar switch housing and a pressure switch that is usually underneath the bike somewhere for the rear brake. You can find the rear brake light switch by following the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder until you come to a switch with some wires on it. On the older bikes, you could unplug the wires to see which switch was holding the light on. If the brake light goes off when you unplug the wires, it's this pressure switch that has the light held on. If the light stays on, it is the front brake light switch. On your bike, check for looseness in the front brake lever. If the lever and pin are worn, this will cause the lever to not depress the switch in the side of the switch housing facing the front brake lever. Your front brake switch may be broken. Odds are that the front brake switch is the one causing the problem.

Good Luck

Not able to shift car out of park


Hello, Look under the dash at the Brake pedal lever. What is happening to you is the part that senses your foot is on the Brake is out of alignment or broken. When you want to shift out of Park the switch on the Brake pedal lever sends a signal to release the Gearshift.

This part frequently gets hit by feet when you enter or exit the vehicle. Some people call this an Interlock switch. Sometimes the Brake lights will not work when this part is bad or out of alignment. Also make sure the Trigger in the Gearshift is not stuck, as the signal from the Interlock may be releasing the Gearshift, but the shifter will not move without the Trigger mechanism.

You should be on your way without a problem. I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Cant get car out of park. brake lights are working


If the lights are working, it means the the brake pedal switch is working. The other possibility is that the electric gate at the shifter lever has become disconnected, or is malfunctioning. This gate opens (is triggered) when the brake is applied. Look for the solenoid at the base of the shift lever, and test it with a voltmeter to see if it receives voltage when the brake is applied.
