Ford F150 Pickup: 2005 ford f150 parking brake light stays

This answer was rated:

2005 ford f150 parking brake light stays on the light will occasionaly go off onits own but usualy stays on all the time.... i tried un pluging the parking brake switch it still stayed on....tried unpluging the switch at the master cylinder it still stayed on .....on a side note i would have thought that atleast 1 of the 3 wires going to the fluid level switch would have had +12 volts but none of them did and one was a ground ........the crapy circuit diagram in the haynes manual seems to sugjest that the two none ground wires should be shorted in normal condition so i tried that and still no change
Allow me to help in diagnosing your vehicle! If I helped make sure to hit ACCEPT button so as I can get credited.

Here is the pinpoint test for the brake indicator staying on.
It is not uncommon for the instrument cluster to be the concern. I have had to replace the cluster a few times for this concern. Follow the steps and your diagnosis will be accurate. Follow pinpoint (K) LINK
