Ok so for my bike build ,I have just got a light kit the normal for these kind of builds ,front light with horn ,rear light with turn signal and brake light ,dc stepdown ,so here's the problem connected it all up to find brake light is constantly on ! Pulled out connectors for brakes and all works fine lights turn on and off ,horn works , turn signal works ,plug brake wires back in and brake light stays on ,but everything still works same ! Brakes are xod's hydraulic with obviously brake sensors ,anybody got any ideas? Is there something i'am missing here ? I'm lost on this just can't figure it out so any help appreciated thanks..👍

Sometimes you need to step back and leave a problem for a while. Let your brain get out of the loop that it seems to get in with difficult problems. You have sufficient lighting to operate with in the meantime.

Switches on brakes normally closed? I’d think pulling the brake lever ought to close the circuit to bring on the light. Is there a second set of contacts to kill the motor when the brakes are engaged? CN
