Parking Brake Indicator Light

What turns the parking brake indicator light on? Mine sometimes does not come on when I set the parking brake...If I let it off and push the pedal in another time or two it will come on...Is there a switch under there that when the pedal starts to move it turns the light on? I looked but didn't see anything...

The problem is what I want to use my AIC sometimes I have to set the brake a couple of times before the light will come on. (Indicator light has to be on for the AIC to work).

Thanks,
Casey

Re: Parking Brake Indicator Light

Yes I just went out and looked on my '97.

at the top of the E-brake assembly there is a one wire switch, green with a red tracer, prolly wrapped in a black wire loom.

power is sent to the light on the dash, then to the switch on the assembly, when you push the pedal the switch grounds out on the pedal, thus turning on the light and your AIC. you either have a bad connection at the switch or the switch has a bad ground, you will find the switch if you pull the E-brake assembly off.
