I need to rig something up to replace the Mickey Mouse brake light switch they used on that damn Sprite.
When you push on the brake pedal, the brake pedal lever releases the switch and THEN the lights come on. The linkage is sloppy and it has a tendency to bounce around so the brake lights flash on and off randomly, especially when you hit a bump.
Here’s the Rinky Dink switch.
It installs at #9 in the diagram and the top of the lever arm releases the switch when it pivots back.
I’m pretty sure I can come up with something a little better than this though.
Gotta give the redneck who did this some credit. It probably works until you get a bunch of mud and crap in it.
