Parking Brake dash light

OK, there has to be a sending unit for the parking brake. The light on the dash has decided it doesn't want o go out with the brake deactivated. It did this once before, but a few miles down the road, all was well.

Where to start looking?

If you have air brakes, the switch is usually mounted to the back of the PB ai valve.

If hydraulic brakes, then the parking brake is likely mechanical and the switch would be by the foot pedal.

Regards,

Dan

you'll probably need an air switch. It's located on the parking brake plunger. Easy change out, less than 1 hour and they are about $60
Google this and you'll get lots of hits.

Thanks, I think this is the item.

One thing to do is ALLWAYS apply or release the park brake when the air tanks are full, around 120# pressure. Mine will sometimes keep the red light in the dash on if I forget and do it with less air pressure.

Captjake,


I have air leveling and if that switch is bad, airleveling will not work in auto mode. Just be sure to bleed all air in system before you start removing that switch. Pretty exciting results if you don't!!!

Hmmmm...haven't noticed a problem with the air leveling yet.
I will try the suggestion to get air to working pressure first. I did not yesterday when I had to move it quickly.
