Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FLSTC - FLSTCI Heritage Classic
Find the rear stop light switch. It's a pressure switch that is screwed into a "T" connector that the metal brake lines screw into. Just follow the rear brake line from the master cylinder to the rear caliper and you'll find it in the line somewhere. There will be two electrical connections on the switch. Make sure the wiring is in good condition at this point.
With the ignition switch in the "Run" position, one of these wires should be "hot", have voltage. When you depress either the brake pedal or pull the front brake lever, both connections should be "hot'. If so, your problem is between this point and the rear brake light.
Remove the bulb and check the socket. With the switch off, use a small screwdriver to check to see if the contacts in the bottom of the socker will spring in and out. There will be two connectors in the bottom, one is the tail light and one is for the brake light. Turn the switch on and carefully check for one of the connectors that is "hot". This is the tail light connector. Depress the rear brake pedal and check the other connector. It should be "hot' with the pedal depressed. If not, you've got a wire broken or shorted between the rear brake light switch and the lamp socket.
