Re: NO BRAKE light!

Check the actual switches for the front and rear brakes - Mine did not work until I cleaned the connections and sprayed the switches with WD-40.

Check your fuses! When i installed my clear alternatives taillight i accidentally crossed a wire and it popped the fuse. That was all.

Re: NO BRAKE light!

and check the bulbs don't forget!!

found the pull spring on the rear switch had come off on mine so had no rear but front brake still worked the light, but still worth checking.

Re: NO BRAKE light!

is the 929 a dual filament bulb? if it is check the bulbs first, one filament can burn without killin both.

Re: NO BRAKE light!

great replys will go try all of them right now, but i think i have more of a problem than that, i have a mess of wires in the rear and somebody has already has just rigged it up. the previous owner laid it over. i think the problem is in the grounding wires. anybody know of a good wiring diagram?
