If the switches are operating normally, then you either have the running light wire and the brake light wire switched or you have a short. Two wires have probably rubbed together and are allowing both wires to have power. More likely mud or dirt has gotten into the tail light and the actual light bulb socket contacts are shorting across each other . I would disassemble the tail light and more specifically the tail light bulb socket and look for corrosion, shorting, or a damaged contact plate. Also carefully inspect the wire harness for damage (crushed wires) and proper plug in at connection points.

1994 fatboy brake light staying on

Hi Anonymous, your front brake lite switch button is probably not getting pushed back into the off position. Remove your right handelbar switch housing and push the plastic button in and out with your finger to see if the light goes off and on. If not disconnect the wires to your rear brake lite switch and check the front switch button again. If the button works then reinstall the switch housing and push it towards the master cylinder hard and hold it with one hand and retighten the screws with the other. If you hook up rear brake lite switch wires and the brake lite comes on replace the switch. For a wiring diagram for your turn signals go to: Good luck

Brake light stays on and cruise control does not work.

Hi Anonymous, try loosening your right handlebar switch housing and pushing it up against the front brake master cylinder with one hand and retighten the housing screws with the other. If that doesn't work check continuity of the rear brake light switch with a test lite. if it lites on both posts without the rear brake pedal being depressed then you have a bad switch and needs to be replaced. Good luck

My back brake lights stay on my 2005 road king classic.

That will be either the front or rear switch sticking, first try unpluging the front brake light switch, with this disconected if the light stays on the problem is with the rear switch, locate the switch this will be close to the brake pedal normal spring opperated which can stick, check it is closing fully, you may also disconnect the switch and check the light goes out reconnect the front switch and check correct opperation, this would thenpoint the fault towards the rear switch

1996 fxdl low rider brake light stays on all the time ?

One of the brake light switches, (front or rear) is most likely stuck or defective. To troubleshoot, locate the rear brake light switch and disconnect one of the wires, (either one). If the brake light goes out, replace that switch, if it doesn't, the problem is most likely at the front brake switch. Wiggle the front brake lever in and out to see if the brake light goes out. If not, it could be the switch or a worn out lever or, brake lever and switch housing are not properly seated together.

If your brake light is staying on, it's due to one of the two switches are made. You have one switch for the front brake and one for the rear brake. It could be either switch making the light stay on.

Odds are it's the front brake switch. Start off by making sure the front brake master cylinder assembly is tight against the throttle assembly switch housing. Loosen the bolts that hold either the master cylinder or the throttle switch housing and move the two assemblies as close together as possible.

If this doesn't work, you will need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to test the switches. Test the rear brake switch first as it's the easiest to get to. Remove the wires from the switch, put your DVOM in the lowest resistance range you have. Touch the probes of the meter to the brake switch wire connections. With no pressure on the rear brake pedal, you should show no continuity, infinite ohms. When you depress the pedal, you do show continuity, zero ohms. If this checks correctly, the front switch is the culprit.

If you show continuity or zero ohms and the rear pedal is not depressed, you could have problems with the rear master cylinder not bleeding the pressure off the rear brake. Loosen the brake line right where it comes out of the rear master cylinder and see if the light goes out. If so, your rear master cylinder needs rebuilding.

Brake light on dash stays lite. What does this

There is a pressure sensing switch on the master cylinder that will turn on this indicator light on the dash if there is enough of a pressure difference between the front brakes vs the rear brakes. It would be a good idea to check brake system for leaks and fluid level.
Sometimes it's just a matter of readusting the switch by having someone hold pressure on the brake pedal while you slightly bleed either the front or back brake line at the master cylinder. Be sure you are confident you are knowledgeable to handle this... you don't want braking problems afterward... Good luck and be careful.
