My truck can't pass because my parking brake foot pedal is a little loose - and the parking brake light comes on because it sags juuuust enough to trip the switch.
I showed the guy that you can just touch the pedal from behind and the light goes off. (the parking brake works just fine mind you)
But - this is state government and they are all knowing and all powerful. If that light is on, you fail.
The REASON the light is on doesn't matter.
I know it's a simple fix - but for the love of god. Couldn't we introduce a little common sense to the process????
And Jay - if you continue having trouble with the light, you can do what most of my friends do with thier older vehicles - snip the wire and be done with it.
