Hello all, just noticed that the brake light on my 1947 Chrysler New Yorker has quit working. It is the original one in the centre of the trunk lid. I removed the bulb and checked it - working. I used a small wire brush on the area were the bulb receptacle comes in contact with the lid to try to ensure good ground - bulb still will not work when installed. Any advice about how to ensure good ground or should I take the next step and presume that the switch has failed? If it is the switch then any advice on the replacement procedure? I saw a video on youtube produced by a gentleman who was replacing the brake light switch on a 50's model De Soto and he said that if a vintage Mopar is using silicon brake fluid then the switch will wear and and fail quite frequently. He therefore replaced the pressure switch with a switch activated by the brake pedal arm - has anyone here ever heard of such an issue? Also, since I may have to replace the brake light switch I thought perhaps I would go further and get some discreet LED under bumper turn and brake signals added - is this worthwhile? Can anyone recommend a good LED signal kit that they are happy with?
mikeintx posted a topic in P15-D24 ForumI have an all original 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible. What is the correct type brake fluid to use in my car? I'm about to add fluid and bleed the brake system but I want to make sure I'm using the correct type fluid.
