Hello all new to forum

Have a 14' sprint 150 and I have no brake light when I pull on front lever, but back is no problem so I know it's not a bad bulb, any ideas what can be wrong ?

Thanks

It is the switch behind the brake lever. Open The headset and unscrew the switch to replace.

Very often a little shot of WD40 or Teflon lubricant will free those little switches up. No tools required.

Sometimes they also get disconnected. Maybe during use, and maybe inadvertently during other projects having nothing to do with the brakes. Not that I would know anything about that, of course.
