I stated in an earlier posting to the SAOC board that I was having trouble
with my third new brake light switch. Each one has worked fine when
installed, then slowly needed more and more pressure to light, and stopped
working. I drive the car every day and have never ever put in any DOT 5 -
only Castrol LMA Dot 3/4.
So, I went to the store again. Popped in a new one, no special bleeding
or anything, and it's working again fine. The shop owner said he has
heard of problems with this brand's switch - it is in a blue/yellow box,
same one I got from Sunbeam Specialties three switches back. I can get
the name if anyone is interested - the box is in my trunk. He also said
that he has heard of no problems with the more expensive Lucas one (about
$30). So he ordered one for me.
Just remember to keep checking that your are working!
