Having issues. 

Both brake lights were out. I had a short on the brake light circuit which was in the LHS light cluster where the live brake light feed wire was shorting on a mounting bolt. This was rectified and a new brake light switch fitted as the original one had overheated presumably due to the short.

On fitting the new switch the lights now come on all the time. Only disconnecting the switch will turn off the brake lights. I assumed a faulty switch, even though testing with a multimeter showed it was ok.  New switch, from a different source, fitted today and still the lights are on all the time. 

Any ideas. 


Look what Q's brought us. Isn't it nice!

Working through an issue with my brake light switch myself. I picked up a replacement from a local parts shop today but it is a "normally closed" switch. I am not sure if the early Esprits are normally open or closed switches. If they are normally open and you installed a normally closed the that would explain your problem.

I don't know if you saw the other thread but they are Normally Closed switches. If the lights are on then perhaps the switch hasn't been screwed in sufficiently.
