Need help with brake light switch.....

I was wondering how the brake light switches work in these rigs? How can I test it to see if i need to buy a new one,,,I heard of ppl cleaning the contacts to make them work what ones? Basicly my bulbs good and i found the plug wasnt on the switch when i got my sled but sence i put it back on still nothing.

If the switch is on the handle you might need a new one. They are cheap. I had 1 go bad.

I was talking about mine. I don't know if yours is on the grip. Mine is a round piece with a knob on it with wires coming out and it is located under the brake lever.

Mine was on the caliper and it musta sensed a change in pressure and activated.
