E-Brake Light does not come on

Does anybody know where to start troubleshooting and e-brake light not coming on. Recently had a brake line that blew and the brake light came on. Since the brake were repair the light does not come on when the e-brake is engaged, I did work before the brake line problem.

Thanks in advance

I'd check the easy stuff first, the switch is on the back of the ebrake bracket, make sure the switch is being depressed when the ebrake is on, and that the wire is attached to it. I don't remember if the switch just picks up a ground for the light or actually switches 12V. I would guess it just picks up ground so I'd check to see if the ground point is clean or corroded up.

Not sure if you got this working ,but there is usually 2 wires to the switch you can touch them together to see if the light comes on,if it does your switch is probably bad .If not it is in the wirinf or a fuse but I think it is on a shared circuit so something else would not be working along with it if it is infact a fuse.
