My E brake light stays on.
It's definetely the switch. The brake itself works fine. However when you release the brake it no longer contacts the switch; leaving the light on. For today I just released the brake and unplugged the sensor plug there so the light would go out and I wouldn't have to listen to that annoying chime. Then when I get where Im going i set the brake and plug the sensor back in so my autostart will work.
My problem is I don't really know what it is supposed to look like so i don't know exactly why the pedal isn't hitting the switch anymore.
Anybody care to give me a detailed explanation of what exactly is supposed to trip the switch and make the light go off? A picture would be superb.. I just can't tell if the switch is busted or if Im missing another piece or what. The switch looks spring loaded.. correct? So do the springs wear out, is the switch plunger just not out far enough for the ebrake to push it back.. I have nothing to compare it too..
If it doesn't move and should: WD40.
If it does move and shouldn't: Duct tape.
