Logic tells me that the when the plunger to the brake light switch is
DEPRESSED, the lights should go ON.
My brake lights were staying on, so I removed the switch from the housing
and fiddled with it, pulling the little plunger out and pushing it in. At
first, the lights just stayed on, then they started going off when I
RELEASED the plunger...
Anyone seen this before? Or Is this a Lucasism where the switch needs to be
aligned so that the pedal, when depressed, releases the plunger?
The part is pretty pricey at $28, I just thought I'd do a sanity check
before I order one. The wires go back into the harness with permanent
connections at the switch, too, which seems like it may be a real pain.
TIA for any enlightenment.
