    Have a 2008 Dyna Super Glide and all the lites and guages work fine, no blown fuses and all the bulbs are good. But my broke lite stays on. I called my local shop and of course they want me to bring it in and charge me (EDIT) . Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Please read this...

    At times the brake light switch plungers stick and do not release all the way. With key on and brake light lit, move around hand lever and foot brake lever independently to shut light off. Then you will know which switch is the problem.....

    removed one wire from the rear brake switch and if the lite still on then your front brake switch is broken.the other thing you can do is push in the front brake switch with a screw driver in between your front brake lever and switch. good luck.
