RE: [DML] Brake resevoir and cap - was Body Care



The cap for the reservoir for the brake cylinder has a very obvious
electrical plug, orange in color, on the top of it.  See the Brakes page
at <>  for some photos.


You would have immediately noticed that the wires were not plugged in if
you saw the right thing.  Either you found the clutch fluid reservoir
instead, which does have a smaller plastic knob, or someone switched out
the cap with a generic one and it has no sensor.


Make sure you found the master brake cylinder, and that it is shaped
like the one in the photos.  If you have the wrong cap you will need to
talk to the vendors about getting a new one.  If you disconnect the
wires you can either find them from below fixing around, or maybe from
above if you remove the fuel pump access plate under the spare.


Once you have a proper cap with a float sensor and the wires connected,
you can manually move the float up and down to check proper operation of
the embedded switch.

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,
