Parking Break Light

My parking break light has never worked in my 2005, 6.0 since I purchased it. Just recently I tried wiring up the high idle to one of my aux switches and it's not working correctly. Could this be because my parking break isn't activating it? I don't think it's a fuse because I've looked through them, and can't seem to find any that are blown. Any Ideas on how to fix this?
