Question about Piaggio Motorcycles
Vespa px 125 02plate back brake light not working when pressing foot pedal Brake light did flash on then off a couple of times but I needed to push the foot pedal fairly hard and now not working at all @
SOURCE: Brake pedal won't return.
There could be a couple reasons for this. First thing to check is your return spring, is it still there and attached properly? Next thing to check is your master cylinder pressure release. Loosen the bleed nipple on the rear caliper. Does the brake release now? If so, your master cylinder has some debris clogging the fluid return passageway. Remove and clean it. If the brake still does not release after opening the bleed nipple, at least one of your caliper pistons is binding. Remove the rear caliper and the brake pads. Now press the pedal and force the pistons out. Looses the bleed nipple and attempt to press the pistons back into place. They should move smoothly when you apply firm pressure. Clean the caliper thoroughly. If you have a rebuild kit for the caliper this is a good time to rebuild it. After cleaning, put it back together, bleed the brakes and test again. It is normal for disk brakes to drag SLIGHTLY on the rotor, but they should not stop a free spinning wheel in less than a coupld revolutions when spun by hand.

i too had this problem .....dnt worry just remove the brake cable and lubricate it with some spray like ABRO or WD40 lubricating spray then you sprayed some in the cable.play with it pull it forward and push it backward.,lubricate and repeat the steps till you find the cable goes smoother...you know it usually happens due to dust and dirt which enters the cable n get it stuck,try this n tell me..

check fuses and then retrace each indicator conector wire back to the fuse . Once this is done check the fuse to power line if it is a factory problem then they should be able to fix the problem directlly and frre of charge regardless if you brought the bike new or used it is there responsibilty.

Depending upon the braking system,you need to service it accordingly.I assume it is 85cc engine and it will have a drum disk.You need to remove the tyre and check the pads,if the pads are fine then give it a good high pressure air to blow away all the dust inside.Then put back things tohether and adjust brake to stop the pedal from going too much down accordingly.Make sure all bolts are secured,align wheel and check chain tension when assembling.Hope this help.

SOURCE: vespa px lights do not work
check the connection of the bulb ensure itis fitted correctly also check fuses it maybe that the bulb for the lights has blown, it is common that the brake light is on a seperate fuse for safety.
