I own a 2007 Century and am wondering where the brake switch is located. I am installing an electric brake controller. Thanks

Should be mounted down there on the arm that the brake pedal moves, isn't it? I've got an '03 Freightliner FL112 and mine is there. There are a couple wires attached to mine. Actually the switch itself is mounted on a bracket and there is a plunger thing that comes out when you push the pedal down. If I remember correctly. I'll be going to my truck on Thursday afternoon and I'll try to take a look at it. My son drives over the road a '05 Columbia. I'll ask him to take a look at his and see if he can find it too. Don't know exactly when I'll next talk to him tho.

Found where it is. There is a manifold behind the dash around the parking brake valve. Panel comes out and everything is there-yeah sure-heard that before. lol

Wow, good find, I never would have thought to check there. Are you sure that isn't just the parking brake switch tho? If it is that wouldn't be the right wire to use for a trailer brake controller. I know on my truck there must be a switch on that parking brake air switch because when I release the parking brakes the daytime running lights come on.

That is where the local dealership to9ld me I could find it. Looked all over the truck and couldn't find either a lever switch or air pressure switch that could have been the brake lite switch so, I think they may be correct.
