when the Parking Brake is set? The light comes on when the car is started but goes out even though the Parking Brake handle is up? It is a simple circuit as far as I can see.
Either the switch grounds the light or not...correct? Do these switches fail easily?:mad:

The first illumination is a lamp check. Which proves the lamp is good. I'd bet the switch is bad or out of adjustment. Most switch of that type are sturdy, but sure it can go bad.
