Parking brake light ...

I know we all (most of us ...) have a parking brake light in the dashboard. I would like that one to work for me, I have all the wiring out and ready to plug but I was wondering if there was a stock microswitch for the LT230's parking brake ? I mean there is a light ... shouldn't there be a switch somewhere ???

Thanks all

Pat

Pat, some early handles didn't have the swicth. There is a thread on lr4x4 on adding it. I've added the switch to mine but could use some help on the wiring. How is your wiring configured?

Safarirover has some LHD handles with the switch on them. Not sure if he has RHD.

Resurrecting an old thread - I have an older style that doesn't have a switch (like the one pictured above). Dash light doesn't work. Thoughts on how to check wiring? Do these older style just make a ground contact when engaged? I don't see any electrical cables coming from the lever, only the mechanical cables; however, I'm fairly certain I'm not looking in the right place. Thanks in advance for any tips.

You may not even have a switch installed or have provisions for one in a 1986 truck.

Yes, it just grounds out. The wire, if you have it, is white with a yellow stripe. It carries voltage from the lamp to the switch, which grounds out and completes the circuit.
