Thread-topic: [Tigers] No Brake Lights
Not sure I understand the "big deal to replace it" comment.  This is a simple
procedure.  Just be sure to protect the paint from spillage when removing the
switch.  It takes a lot more effort to create a mount and change the wiring to
facilitate a mechanical switch.  Keep it simple.  And yes, Rick at SS has the
switch in the event the switch cannot be revived.

There is a brakelight switch there, it is hydraulic and built into the brake
Its a big deal to replace it. The common solution is to install a mechanical
switch on the pedal assembly.
Here's some info.

I have no brake lights. The rear tail lights and turn signals work, so bulbs
or ground are not the issue. I can't find anything electrical associated with
the brake pedal. What actually activates the brake lights? Thanks!
