The red light for my parking brake flashes intermittantly as the lever does not fully depress the switch. 1974 GTV. Is this an easy fix?:confused:

Any help appreciated.

I would remove the boot and see what's flaky in the light switch area. Make sure the brake handle is hitting it squarely, it isn't moving around, and that the metal parts that contact to make ground (or not) are clean, straight, and connecting and releasing properly. This is a very common problem.

It can also be caused by a stiff/misadjusted parking brake cable that has enough "spring" to it to push the handle back up, even when it's off.
