My parking brake has never really worked correctly, but the brake light never stayed on until a month ago. now it stays on even when i release the parking brake, but i have had no brake problems and my fluids are fine. no leaks. 95 yj 2.5 5 speed, stock except for 30.5 x 10.5 tires. i tried disconnecting the battery for a while, didn't work. talked to my mechanic on the phone and he said the parking break switch might be stuck on. where is this and can I fix it?
Also looking at getting a hand winch, any suggestions? and I was wondering what tires were better for offroading, my 30.5's or my smaller pizza cutter snow tires. any help is appreciated. the 30.5's sucked in the snow.
I don't even know where the switch is. how do I fix it? I'm new to working on wranglers. I'm not into rocks, more mud and dirt than anything. should I stay with the wide tires, and keep the pizza cutters for snow?
I know the 95's had a recall issue with parking brakes. It had to do with the foot mechanism. I would check that whole assembly for any problems-switch and whole mechanism My 95 was fixed in the recall.
If you get a Haynes repair book it shows a good view of the parking brake assy. the switch is at the top of the parking brake held in by the push rod bolt(pivot bolt). as for tires, off road in snow wider is better, on road narrow.
