Where does wire go from Parking Brake switch?

It looks like the wire from the Parking Brake switch goes behind the fuse panel.
Does it go directly into the back of the panel?? or is it part of a wire harness?

The wire broke at the switch on my 69 Camaro and there isn't any wire left on the switch to re-attach or solder it. So it looks like I will need to buy a new switch.

It should have a male pin connector that plugs into the back of the switch. You can get them from radio shack. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and see if it will pull out. Then take it to radio shack or maybe a automotive parts house to compare it to what you need.

Should be the same type connector that goes on the door switches.

Oh... OK, thanks.

I just assumed that the wire was soldered on to the end of the switch.

Might as well remove the broken terminal end from inside the switch; you may be able to just re-solder, or use it when you go looking or a new one.
