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.

Where is the brake light switch on a 2009 harley flstc

There are two.

The front switch is inside the right handlebar switch housing (START, RUN/OFF kill switch, RIGHT TURN SIGNAL) and operates off the front brake lever.
The usual problem with this is it either sticks, or the "tit" that works off the brake lever gets broken off, usually because the front master cylinder wasn\'t installed by the correct procedure.
Usual results is the brake light will not turn off with the ignition on.

The other switch is located along the rear brake hydraulic line.
Start at the master cylinder and follow the line back to the rear caliper, and you\'ll find it eventually.

It appears Harley has a problem with the rear brake light switch on this year, as it tends to spring a leak, brake pedal goes all the way down without stopping, sometimes smoking from the brake fluid being sprayed on hot engine parts, etc.

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.

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

Rear brake light does not work tail light does need to know were brake light switch is?

Your bike is equipped with two brake light switch, either of which should cause the brake light to come on when activated. The front brake light switch is in the right handlebar switch housing and it has an activation pin that sticks out of the switch housing towards the front brake lever. A tab on the front brake lever operates the switch. When the tab on the lever moves away from the switch housing, the pin comes out of the switch housing and turns on the brake light. The rear brake light switch is a pressure switch located in the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder and goes towards the rear brake. Just follow the metal from the rear master cylinder towards the rear brake and you'll find it.

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.

Brake Light

evidently it is a vibration problem and it shouldn't be! It is a 2006 I bought in April and it now has just 1100 miles on it. I have not ridden on any particularly rough roads. Check the lever switch,
