Brake warning light

The switch near the E brake goes up and down if pushed but doesn't seem to connect to anything. Should it be hitting the E brake arm when E brake activated. Light works but won't go out.

Re: Brake warning light

There should be a tab mounted to the side of the e-brake that contacts the switch. For '68, AIM UPC 12, sheet B9. Here is a picture of mine:

Re: Brake warning light

Yes that's it. It seemed like an alignment problem or a missing piece.
I'll have to get that piece. Thanks

Meaning they won't sell them individually and you have to buy an entire e-brake pedal? I'm missing that switch too, so just curious.

Re: Brake warning light

Not sure if you really mean the switch. You can buy the switch, I'm pretty sure. It's the metal piece that pushes the plunger on the switch that we are saying ins't available. You can try contacting the manufacturer of the brake pedal assembly and ask. I have tried that before for other things (gauge indicator lense) and had no luck...

Yeah, sorry, it's that metal piece and plunger that I'm missing, too. Bummer.

Thats odd, because the clip in the first link looks more like the one in the picture in post #2.



How can there be two completely different clips, and how does the last one attach?

Re: Brake warning light

I stuck my head up under there. Not easy since my column is loose and being supported, blocking off most of that area... It does seem to look more like the first link. It looks like the cable itself holds the large piece in place. The clip can be seen in my picture. It's rust colored and clipped near the cable end. Not sure what it does, exactly... It might keep the cable/tab in place if there is any slack.?.?

Re: Brake warning light

Just been out to check (again) which clip I have..Rem this is the orginal factory setup
Yep the 2nd clip
it is a bitch to get in..the end of the cable goes thru it and has a spring clip to hold it in place.
looking at the top assembly pic..it maybe just the angle the pic is taken
That is not an orginal factory switch..the orginal was white not black.
The E brake cable is directly under the switch and the tag part hangs out the top edge of the bracket

Re: Brake warning light

Kind of confusing... I guess I'll learn more about it when I take it all out for paint.

The switch was in there when I bought the car in '83. I do see that all the vendors sell white ones. I was wondering about it... Did you see a discussion on it's color somewhere?
