    I HAVE 2009 FXDFSE FATBOB WITH THE LED BRAKE LIGHT. I RECENTLY NOTICED THAT THE BRAKE LIGHT STAYS ON ALL THE TIME.

    I REMOVED THE TWO LEADS TO THE BRAKE SWITCH OFF THE REAR MASTER CYCLINDER AND THE LIGHT STILL STAYS ONE.

    WITH THE BIKE TURNED TO ON - ITS 33 mV ACROSS THE LEADS WHEN UNPLUGGED FROM THE BRAKE SWITCH.

    I MEASURED THE VOLTAGE ACROSS THE SWITCH AND IT DOES GOES TO 0 WHEN I DEPRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL.

    WHERE WOULD I GO TO LOOK NEXT - I DONT WANT TO BUY ANOTHER LED MODULE JUST IF I DONT HAVE TO.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE
    JEFF

    Try unlocking your caps key on your computer. It sounds like you are yelling.:s
    Have you done any modifications to handle bars. Switch covers levers etc.

    The front brake switch is in the brake level in the right handlebar

    i did replace the grips a couple of months ago.

    may i didn't get that back together right.

    thanks

    Its easy to break the brake light switch if disassembling switch cover is necessary to replace grips. Check the self help section for great advice...
