My Jeepster Brake lights only come on once pedal is pushed more than half way?
Have a 1971 Jeepster Commando, Brakes work fine and stop the Jeep great, but the brake lights only come on once the pedal is pushed more than half way. Wiring appears fine and in tact.
Part 2; If I should replace the brake switch, do I have to drain the master cylinder first?

I would use a container to catch any fluid that might drain while the switch is out and change the switch quickly. this way the entire system will not have to be bled to get the air out .be careful not to get brake fluid on painted areas it will remove the paint .

Update: New Brake light switch installed & brake lights now function correctly. Easy and very quick fix to replace with no fluid loss from the Master Cylinder.
