99 V92 C, Brake light doesn't work with rear brake, only front. I suspect pressure switch. Where is this switch located? I saw the drawings on the parts Fiche. Is this a special switch? could an oil sending unit switch be used?

Thanks

Most brake pressure switches only cost about $10 ....not sure if yours is any different. Follow brake line from caliper forward and your bound to run into it. Only has a two wire plug attached to it.

Here is the picture showing where the switch is located


The switch is item #22 which originally had part number 4110238 which was later replaced by part number 4010372.

Motorcycle Monster lists it for $15.70

Not sure if the oil sending unit would work but unless you have a spare sending unit why? If you do have a spare you could try it to see what happens but that could lead to other problems.

Check to make sure the plug hasn't come loose. If its tight clean it and plug it back in. Many times that's all there is or a blown bulb or fuse.

Thanks for everyone's help

I found the switch and cleaned the contacts on connectors, still no brake light. I jumped across the 2 wires and the brake light worked. Bad switch........my question, how much fluid will be lost when changing the switch and will I need to bleed the brakes after switch replacement?

99 V92C

Thanks for everyone's help.............

Brake light switch

Mark, I'm just hitting this same issue and was wondering if the switch and bleed was all it took.
I have yet to replace it, I did buy the switch, right around $20.00. I did verify the switch was bad by jumping across the 2 terminals that plug into the switch, with the ignition on, the brake light came on. I figure this is a small winter project. The switch is located on caliper side , right under the frame.Follow the brake line from the caliper forward. Don't forget the DOT 4 brake fluid.

Good luck

Mark

If you apply gentle pressure on the pedal as you change the switch, no air will enter the system. You may spill a fraction, have a catch-can under and top up reservoir.

Plus one... however if the switch has been leaking during use the brake caliper on the front right will probably need to be bled.

Brake light switch

Hey V92PS200,

I have yet to change my switch, living in OH, priority is a wee bit low. I actually purchased a power bleeder and plan on using that. I will bleed the front as well, to basically change the brake fluid.I will keep you posted.
