View Full Version : Spitfire Spitfire 1500 Dash Lights

I am sorting out the dash lights on my 1500 after correcting some wiring problems I inherited and I had a question.

When the parking brake is engaged where is the switch located that would turn on the plastic dash insert labelled "Brake"? Under the car adjacent to the parking brake lever? (In looking at the wiring diamgram it appears it would light up if one of the chambers in the brake master cylinder where low on fluid and also when the parking brake is engaged.)

The switch is attached to the parking brake handle; drivers side (US), just forward of the pivot.

The dash indicator lights if the emergency brake is engaged, or if the PDWA shuttle is off center. The PDWA is the object plumbed downstream of the master cylinder that senses a pressure differential between the two circuits of the master cylinder. It has a switch sticking out the top of it.
