Brake Switch

So I've determined that my brake switch is only working sometimes which makes starting the RZR a pain. I did the jumper text and when jumped the brake lights work fine. I also cleaned the terminals, male and female so I assume it has to be the switch.

Anyone replace one yet? Do you just pull the top off or does the whole block have to be replaced (as in taking the brake lines off)?

Thanks

Re: Brake Switch

NM, it looks like it has threads and will screw out. Find out for sure when I get the new one.

Re: Brake Switch

Yeah it just threads into the block. Unfortunately this lets air in so you have to bleed the rear brakes afterward
Try to dribble brake fluid into the new switch before installing it so no trapped air works its way out later & makes your pedal spongy.

Re: Brake Switch

I found a problem this weekend. I was able to start my 2012 570 with out having my foot on the brake. I looked into this and found my brake lights are always on (not just the running lights). Everything had been working fine the last time I took the rzr out.


I have searched on the forum and found that if the Brake switch goes bad people can not start the rzr. I spent the last couple hours running the power lines in the rzr. I disconnected the wire completely that goes to the Brake Switch and the rzr still started with no application of the brakes and the brake lights were still on.

There are two 30 amp fuses in line to the brake switch. When one is removed there is no change, rzr still starts with no brake and brake lights on. When the second is removed there is no power at all to the rzr. The instrument panel does not even light up.

I found a post about the circuit breaker getting corroded and checked that as well. It appears to be fine with power going through it.

I also located some posts about the brake light wires getting in touch with the muffler and melting to the point they ground out completing the circuit and causing the system to act as if the brakes are always on. I checked this as well and all the wires appear to be intact.

I trying to find out what direction to go next, any ideas?
