Brake light out

Hi gents got a CBR 600 RR with a all in 1 brake indicator unit. The brake light is lit but when I apply the brakes front/rear it's not getting brighter like it used to?? The indicators work fine. This is a LED unit. Any pointers on what might be the issue please?

First thing I'd do mate is to put a meter from the brake connection on the light unit and the frame and measure the resistance.......when you operate the brakes the resistance should go low.....If it doesn't, then you've likely got a wiring issue or both brake switches are duff.....otherwise it's likely to be the light unit itself..... :wink:

Yeah, that'll do it...... 8-)

Use the Ohms setting between the brake light connection on the wiring going to the light unit and the frame......you don't need the ignition switched on.....and operate the brake levers fully.....The resistance should go low when you pull the levers...... :wink:

I find it easier to just check you have voltage at the connector when you operate the brakes


I have had false readings with resistance before


But either way will work :thumb:

Managed to half sort the problem. Both sensors are tits. Bogged the rear but I'm going to get the ordered now. It's in the garage with its Arse in its hand [emoji23][emoji23] thanks for the help lads
