remove the under-dash trim

its a little button that should be depressed when the brake pedal is fully up(IOW: the circuit closes when the brake pedal is pressed, it goes open when you release the brake)

just follow the brake lever up and it is about 4 inches or so up.

thanks guys, that was the problem, my switch was fried... one of the connectors looked burnt up, so I opened it up, and it look like a small fire had caught inside the casing, so I went to the local parts store, and ordered a new switch for 10 bucks
