Brake light switch - Handbrake


Recommended Posts

NickBW

Hi all

So I have replaced my handbrake switch. Should have been a 5 min job. 

 

Installed the new one. Now the handbrake light only comes on when the handbrake is off.  I cannot work out what what to do to have the light come on when the handbrake is on. And turn off when the handbrake is released 

 

Thanks

Nick.

You must have bought the wrong type of switch🤷🏾‍♂️

 

You wanted a 'on when open'

But you've fitted a 'on when closed'

Thanks @CosKev

If I am fitting a Dash2 pro in a few weeks. Can I change the input to switch the light round the other way?

 

Is that possible?

 

Thanks

Nick.

You can add a relay to change the logic if you want, but it’s a bit of a faff compared to just changing the switch for a normally closed rather than normally open.
