Parking Brake Light on Dash
 
We'll it's been a couple of weeks so it's time to ask another head scratching question.

When I turn the ignition key on, all the dash warning lights turn on including "park." When I start the car, all the dash light turn off normally.

So here's the question. When I pull up on the parking brake handle, the park light doesn't come on in the dash. I would have thought the parking brake switch had failed, but the convertible top works normally. This tells me the parking brake switch is working. Or at least part of it is.

Anybody want to hazard a guess as to why the park light doesn't come on when the parking brake lever is pulled up

Thanks

If your top functions normally, it could just be a wonky switch. Not too pricey to get and swap out.

Switch or bulb. Both easy to replace.

Since the bulb lights, I'm guessing its not the problem. Possibly a switch issue?
