    Check the brake switch in the hand controls. Might just be stuck fooling the sensor thinking your pressing the brake. Hope thats all it is.

    Have you changed out the switch covers on bars???? if so possibly broken pin on front brake switch. If not then check connector at rear master cylinder to make sure attached properly.
    This may help. Click on link: Rear Brake Light Switch - Harley Davidson Community

    Cruise will not engage with brake light staying on..

    Funny part of difficult problems is that its a simple solution to fix. You just have to kill yourself to find it. LOL :panic

    How about the famous rear brake switch. Mine just went and brake lights will not work, but I've hear they can also get stuck so the brake light is always on.

    Good luck.

    What year FLHX....I'm betting it's the rear switch too, but heavy water could also be a culprit. Any recent handlebar mods on the bike?

    If he had chrome switch covers put on the handlebar switches, the problem is most likely with the hand brake on the bars, as someone mentioned earlier.
