Pull the wires off of the rear brake switch, brake lights should go out. Ohm out the switch with brake pushed and not pushed. If the switch is bad, it should ring out all the time. If that's not it, remove the brake lever on the front and push in the brake switch and see if the brake lights go out. One question I ask, have you worked on anything lately, the bars, under the seat, etc. ?ok just followed the directions from the sticky.
3 codes which still doesn't tell what to fix.
p0572-brake switch low
c1094-front brake switch always on
c1214- rear brake switch always on.
so can any one tell me what to fix ? lol.
I had the rear switch on my 02 FLHT go out on me, which in turn disabled the cruise control. Unfortunately it happened about 500 miles from home, so I rode the entire way without cruise or even the screw down throttle lock
The diagnosis on mine was that by design, the switch was too close to the exhaust pipe and the heat eventually fried the switch.
That particular trip we were on the last leg on a Sunday trying to get home, and on 2 laners the whole way. Unfortunately nothing was open in all the small towns we were passing through that day. It was just one of many nickel and dime problems that bike started causing me.:grin:On the road you can get a switch that will work at auto parts houses

To err is human, to really foul thing up requires a computer.. I've been working in IT since the late 90's, and I absolutely love my old stone ax reliable Shovelhead. Because computers...I kinda hate the damn things.well because I am too stupid to give up I went out there and cleared the codes and now the brake light is working properly.
as I stated I took both front and rear switches apart but I did not clear the codes earlier. maybe I was supposed to clear them so the brain could work ?
