Tried checking switch with light tester. No power at switch. Where is power for swith coming from? Fuse? If so which one?

Should be a fuse to the switch to the lamp but I am sorry, I do not know your vehicle well enough to tell you which fuse to check in your diagnosis.

It is the switch on the parking brake assembly. Disconnected the wire and grounded it, light came on. Now where can I purchase switch? Is it a dealer item only?
