I had an issue with the front brake switch once.
It happened after a long ride in the rain.
A little blob of crap formed on the contacts.
For me when the switch was activated, the brake light had a delay before the bulb would begin to light up.
It never got to full illumination. It was as if it was on a dimmer.
I also had leds connected to the brake circuit and when the voltage finally got up to 8 volts the leds would light up.
A scraping of the contacts and a shot of WD40 and still working after all these years.
That little blob was like a thermistor on the fuel level gauge, when it got hot the lamp would light up.
The brake filament takes about 2 amps vs microamps on the DMM continuity test.
