I have a 2011 Fat Boy Lo over a year ago installed a Bright

Customer Question

I have a 2011 Fat Boy Lo over a year ago installed a Bright Ass taillight. Everything worked without a problem until about a month ago. Now brake light does not work from either the front brake lever or rear foot brake. Still have running lights, just no brake light. Took taillight off and install on another bike and brake light work fine. Light is not the problem. Only change within the last month has been installation of new battery. I have a Vance & Hines FUELPak 3 on the bike and it is giving me an error code of B2223 rear brake switch shorted low. Need advise for next step or steps. Thank you.

Hello, if you would unplug the rear brake light switch and see if they work when the front brake lever is pulled. Let me know what you find and we can work further if needed.
