Questions: Does this part use a standard yellow crimp on wire sleeve to connect to the two probes or something else? They don't seem to attach well an I hate to crimp it on too tight if it uses something else. The previous switch I am replacing is your item # 931216. It has a very different type of connector. Thanks

Questions: Hi, will this switch work on both 6v and 12v systems
Question By: Pierre on Dec 18 2021 6:04 PM
Yes, that is correct. It is just a pressure switch.

Questions: I have a 1946 CJ2A. After a brake application, the brake lights stay on. So, I've replace the brake light switch (637417) a couple times which didn't fix the problem. I then just recently replaced the master cylinder and I have the same issue. If I crack one of the 4 bleeders on any wheel, the brake lights go off. Any idea's?

A bit odd. I would check your free pedal travel on your brake pedal.

Questions: My 1948 CJ-2A has this style brake switch with the male ends. Will this fit in a CJ-2A or only MB's and GPW's?
Question By: Ryan on May 29 2017 4:25 PM
That is more MB/GPW style typically. The 48 CJ-2A would have female ends.

Questions: Is there a female end that clips on to the switch pins? The detents make it look like something slips over the pins to make the connection to the wires. My CJ-2a had no wiring to the brake light switch when I got it, so I want to wire it correctly.
Question By: Zach L. on Jan 2 2017 5:14 PM
The male connector is a NAPA item and can be heat sleeved in. We also offer complete wiring harnesses too.

Questions: I just pulled my (looks to be an original sigle stage) brake master cylinder out of my 45 MB will the old brake light switch fit the new dual master I have purchased (waiting for delievery) and if so how do I bend test the switch. I have it out but a multimeter on it push a small flat stick into the hole on the other end push in but no meter change pooks like a bad switch to (brake lights did not work prior to pulling master)
Question By: Bob Huebner on Aug 12 2016 1:12 PM
You will need to reuse your old outlet bolt part number: 637605 Also check out our diagram section on brakes/master cylinder for your vehicle and it will help too. Its just a pressure switch.
