Break Light
« on: September 20, 2014, 05:39:27 PM »
Hello,

Looking for some suggestions, my brake lights were not working so I dad the brake light switch replaced, that did the job once replaced now that are not working again. I checked the fuses and they all show that they are not broken, upon further inspection some of the fuses a very dirty, the fuse that is designated for the brake lights are the same for the fuel gauge and that works.

This is a 1950 170S Cabriolet B

Any suggestions?

You can check the cables going in to the fuse box. But better check the switch, which closes the electric circuit, when you press the break.

Michael Bonnar,

You may have to bleed your brakes to eliminate any air because the switch uses brake fluid to activate it.
