New here and just got a 50 Pontiac chieftain about 9 months ago. Rebuilt the brake system mechanically and am having trouble getting the brake lights working. Jumpered the 2 wires coming out of the brake light switch tohether and got tem to work, so I know the wiring is good. And also have a new brakelight switch. Any ideas? Is it based on pressure? Are my brakes not bled properly? Also the lights are dim. Is that just the nature of a six volt system. Any help is appriciated.
