Hand Brake microswitch

Spent some quality time wrenching on the LT last night. Got down to the ABS module to find the fluid levels were fine, and can verify with whomever said that the servo run-on was most likely the switch in the handle that activates the servos. If you squeeze the handle hard, it doesn't quite return far enough to disengage the switch, but everything works perfectly with light application and if you ensure the handle is fully forward.

So...something is either gummy or misadjusted or worn. The microswitch, being a weatherproof uber bauble is $65. If there's some cleaning or adjusting to be done first, I'm all for it....and this has thus far avoided my Search engine skills.

Re: Hand Brake microswitch

There is a small amount of adjustment available. Just pull the two screws on the bottom cover and you will see the switch.
