Ok, the brake light is turned on when the brake lever is pulled. The switch is actually located in the right switch housing along with the right turn signal switch, starter switch, and throttle. It's simple button switch. When the lever is pulled, it pivots on the pivot pin and small tang on the bottom side to the lever swings FORWARD releasing the swith turning on the light. When you let go the tang swing backwards depressing the button turning off the light.

Loosen the bolts that hold your front brake master cylinder to the handlebar and slide the master cylinder back towards the switch houslng as far as you can. They should be touching. If the light still won't turn off, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart and replace the small switch.

Good Luck

How do i stop my brake light from staying on on my 2014 low rider


Basically all brake lights are triggered by a switch that is located near a pivot of the lever you are pressing on with your foot or applied by hand pressure in, whatever the vehicle. The trick is to locate the switch which in your case has stopped working, It is either broken or stuck in the closed position. Locate the switch, replace it and you should be good to go.

Rear brake lever sticking making my brek lights stay on


Hi, There should be a spring that pulls the lever back up when you remove your foot. It might be missing or broken. You might also have a mal adjusted switch that activates the brake light. it should be located near the pivot bolt for the brake lever. There is also a switch on the front brake lever. That might need adjusting or replacement.

My 98 gmc jimmy will not shift out of park


possibly the neutral safety switch connected to the brake pedal is bad. when you apply foot to brake , shouls hear a click with key in run position, this would be the safety solenoid retracting itself from shift linkage, allowing shift lever to move. try pumping rapidly, but easily the brake pedal to see if you can hear click, and or shift from park.

Have a 2006 dyna wide glide foot brake light brake light hand brake does not replaced lever wherte is the brake switch


The front brake switch is located inside the right handlebar control. It is a plunger type switch. The correct way to install a new one is to solder the wires on the new switch to existing wires from the old switch. Cut the wires about 2 inches or so from the old switch. Be careful when reinstalling the front lever or you may damage the plunger on the new switch.

Rear tail light stays on all the time. Is this normal (new bike for me), meaning is the light supposed to come on BRIGHTER when the brakes are applied and that function is broken, or is the light supposed...


Good news. Mine did the same thing. There should be a running light and a "brake" light all within the same bulb. Check the switches on the front brake lever and the rear brake lever. Both actuate the rear brake light. You can usually do a quick test by pushing the brake lever on the handlebar all the way out and see if the light goes out. This is what my problem was. If you poke around you will see a switch on both brake levers. Make sure they are pressed in when your not pulling (handle bar lever) and pushing (right foot brake lever). You will see a switch with a little rod on it, when you press the foot break/pull the hand brake, it will come all the way out. That is when the light comes on. Hope this helps.

Brake light stays on


There is a switch in your right-hand switch housing which is activated when your front brake lever is depressed.  If this breaks, your brake light will stay on.  To check this, you'll need to take apart your switch housing.  The two screws are a torx 25 and the two holding your master cylinder on are a torx 27.  The switch is right behind the brake lever.  If this is the problem, you'll have to buy a new switch and sodder it in.

Cant fold my instep safari tt stroller


One-hand fold is not as quick and easy as it's name suggests. This model requires reclining seat all the way first, then step on the safety release lever (about shin-high) located above one of the rear wheel axles. While holding down safety release lever with your foot, then squeeze the one hand fold mechanism located near the parent console and the stroller will collapse. There is a lock bar/plate to hold stroller in place. It will not stand on its own in this position, but with the foot brake activated, will lean against something and stay in place.
