Parking Brake Switch Test

NOTE: If both the ABS indicator and the brake system indicator come on at the same time, check the ABS system first.
  1. Disconnect the parking brake switch connector (A) from the parking brake switch (B).
  1. Check for continuity between the switch terminal (C) and body ground.
    • With the parking brake lever pulled, there should be continuity.
    • With the parking brake lever released, there should be no continuity.
    NOTE: If the parking brake switch and the brake fluid level switch are OK, but the brake system indicator does not function, do the gauge control module self-diagnostic function.
  1. Reconnect the parking brake switch connector.
