Re: electrical gremlins ate my lunch
The LT uses wire only for the ground not the frame, so yes a bad ground connection can cause a lot of trouble.
On the windshield all the relays are up on the frame by the motor for the windshield. The inputs from the handle bar are as follows:
1. From the handle bar control; Green wire is power, Blue is lower, Gray is lift.
2. A connector up under the dash or in the relay box; wire colors change to Green/Black, Blue/Yellow, and Gray/Yellow. Same functions.
Don't see how this could ever be related to a brake switch even if a ground was missing. I suspect a cross wiring was done in the junction box where one of the handle bar multi-function switches ties in and the brake light relay as they are side by side. This may help you sort it out. This is where the colors change on the windshield control lines.
