There were 2 very common failures on these trucks, 1 was the switch itself, the other was the plug for the brake light switch, the wires were so small that they would break right at the connector, so you either solder in a new brake switch connector, or add on about 3 inches of larger wire and put on the right spade connectors then solder and shrink wrap the joints and plug in the spade connectors, problem solved.

Will people please learn to spell when sending in questions? This and the six listed below all refer to the "BREAK" problem and not the "BRAKE" problem! When you break something, it is broken and has nothing to do with stoping a vehicle. Spell checker will NOT catch this as it is spelled right.

Odd my spell check keeps changing brake to break, so I have to change it back, guess it is all in the spell check program.

Most days anymore I wish it was all back to the 60's.
