Re: [DML] Body Care

Thanks to Tom and others who replied about brake light and body care,

Found time this weekend to check out ideas on brake light.  Hand brake
switch is operating correctly.  Disconnected switch and checked with
ohm meter in on and off positions.  Grounding wire made no difference
either.  On to the master brake cyl.  Opening the plug I found no
wires you referred to, only a small plastic thumb screw top on the
reservoir which was full.  

What to check next?  Does the access panel to the master cyl need to
be removed to check further? I begin to see why simple does not fit
the DeLorean vocabulary.

Thanks again,
